Tourist is the musical moniker of London born Will Phillips. Combining emotive, melodic sensibilities with innovative production values, Will incorporates his love for analogue tapes and field recordings with his passion for synthesizers and sampling to create a euphoric, melancholic sound that plays equally well on the dance floor as it does in more intimate environments.Will has steadily made a name for himself over the last year with his first EP, Placid Acid released in 2012 and his new EP Tonight released earlier this year, both of which were met with widespread critical acclaim. 2013 has also seen Will debut his live show – with dates across Europe and a live Boiler Room performance, Will is playing to ever increasing crowds.
Depending on whom you ask, Matthew Dear (born in Kingsville, Texas, USA) is a DJ, a dance-music producer, an experimental pop artist, a bandleader. He co-founded both Ghostly International and its dancefloor offshoot, Spectral Sound. He’s had remixes commissioned by The xx, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Spoon, Hot Chip, The Postal Service and The Chemical Brothers; he’s made mixes for the Fabric mix series and Get Physical’s Body Language. He maintains four aliases (Audion, False, Jabberjaw, and Matthew Dear), each with its own style and distinct visual identity. He straddles multiple musical worlds and belongs to none — and he’s just hitting his stride.
