Pioneering multidisciplinary artist Tourist shares brand new single ‘EST’, which was released on 10th November on his own imprint Monday Records. Alongside the release, he announced a huge 2024 US, UK and EU headline tour, with the US tour a co-headliner with Amtrac
Tourist’s third single of 2024, ‘EST’, pushes the boundaries of atmospheric house as it follows ‘A Little Bit Further’ and ‘Second Nature’. Known for his unparalleled ability to weave ethereal soundscapes and down-tempo electronic beats, Tourist’s latest offering is poised to captivate a diverse audience, whilst delivering the quintessential signature sound he is renowned for.
In his music, Tourist masterfully melds sonic textures to create a musical landscape that transcends boundaries and ‘EST’ is no exception. On the track, he adds: This is my attempt to write something that feels beautiful but also confrontational at the same time. I wanted the new album to be enjoyably disorientating and ‘EST’ really sums up that intention.”
After the enormous success of his last album ‘Inside Out’, with praise across the breadth of the global music media – including Clash, Bandcamp, This Song Is Sick, Stoney Roads, Music Tech and more – the UK-based producer went on to tour the world and wow crowds far and wide with his live shows. An album created during the coronavirus pandemic, the death of a close friend and the birth of his daughter changed his life.
To express his interlocking grief and joy, he made Inside Out, a tender, uplifting album of swinging garage grooves, chunky bass, and French filter house melodies. His music effortlessly evokes a sense of nostalgia while remaining forward-thinking, making it accessible to a global audience with varying musical tastes.
Entering his eleventh year of releasing music under the Tourist alias, he continues to remix for the likes of Flume, Chistine and The Queens, Wolf Alice, Deftones, CHVRCHES, Sophia Koutesis, Swedish House Mafia and The Weeknd. Showing no signs of slowing down he continues to grow with every year and has gone on to pick up a Grammy, co-write ‘Stay With Me’ for Sam Smith, sell out dates and festival appearances. In an era where electronic music continues to evolve, Tourist stands out as a visionary artist who expertly navigates the electronic landscape; his innovative soundscapes and soulful melodies have earned him acclaim from fans and critics alike.
As he gears up to release new music and embark on a world tour, he continues to push the boundaries of electronic music, captivating a diverse audience with his music.
