Tourist continues to deliver with his recent collaboration with Lianne La Havas. Joining ‘I Can’t Keep Up’ and ‘Together’ (one of the standouts of 2013, for us), ‘Patterns’ is the title track from his brand new EP, out on Disclosure’s Method Records.
Once again the London via Brighton producer is doing what he knows best – drawing the listener in subtly before a steady build up to the emotionally charged climax. It’s a tried and tested recipe from his more recent releases, and in turn he’s carving out a strong reputation as one of the UK’s most promising producers. Recruiting another celeb for the vocals, (a tip from the label heads perhaps) can only help the matter – Lianne La Havas sounds well at home with the swirling synths and scatty percussion. Her input, combined with the gospel-tinged chorus, make this tune very radio-friendly indeed.
For a change of tempo, check out Tourist’s recent remix of London Grammar’s ‘Sights’, and for a longer stint, his recent guest show on Rinse FM. We’ve got it ALL covered.
