William Phillips is the man behind Tourist, one of the most talked about projects on the British scene, especially since his recent signing to Disclosure’s Method label. The pivotal moment in his career came about with the release of EP “Patterns”, a contemporary slice of electronica containing subsonic sounds characteristic of bass music, r&b and UK garage elements, inspired melodic hooks and vocal contributions from the likes of Lianne La Havas and Will Heard. Philips is a classically trained pianist and renowned composer and remixer. In partnership with Jimmy Napes he has worked on tracks for Sam Smith and Disclosure, and his remix discography includes Chvrches, Haim and Sharon Van Etten, among others. When Tourist plays live his emotive sound is enhanced even further. Using the piano as a central component he maintains his extreme attention to detail and track musicality. To quote him, the end result is something like “dance music for people who do not like to dance.”
