Brighton-based producer Tourist recently shared a new track and, if I had an alley, this would be all sorts of up it, and maybe even around the corner. The song is one five-minute-long muted, but unfathomably lush, soundscape, like James Blake minus any shred of angst. Tourist cleverly chops up Aaliyah’s famous “If your girl only knew” vocals and weaves them so intricately into the structure of that track that it sounds as if it just organically came into being–the immaculate auditory conception. The usually hyperbolic tone in my writings cannot even begin to capture my enjoyment of “Your Girl.” Grab it below and start slowly melting into your chair.
