Tourist – Tonight

The blog life is about picking up on musical buzz words. What names consistently show up on playlists? Who’s scheduled to DJ at the local watering hole? Who runs circles around established acts?

Brit-DJ, Tourist, checks all of these boxes. Thatbeatjuice just featured his recent collaboration with Aftermath legend, Josef Salvat. He’s playing at The Independent in San Francisco on 4/19.  And he’s an absolute musical deviant – creating what he calls “sad dance music.”

Trappy, sappy and heady as a smoke shop on Haight Street, Tourist will inevitably blow up. Get on him early.

“I can do what I want, nobody has any expectations of what my sound is. There’s something dangerous about getting big because you make your success on certain defining records. Early on you can be risky and I always want to be risky.” (Interview with Billboard Music).

Josef Salvat

I’ve been investigating Josef Salvat since posting the latest Chainsmokers remix of his song “Open Season.” Turns out the Aussie singer-songwriter doesn’t need a synthesizer to make his tracks exceptional.

Nods to D-man for (sort of) discovering him back in January.
