When first released back in 2000, Tourist was a global success, selling over four million albums worldwide. It was Ludovic Navarre's (aka St Germain) third studio album which really transformed his career into superstardom; combining elements of house and nu jazz to produce an impeccable album to chill out to. The album continues to be hugely popular to this day, with the critically acclaimed Jorja Smith doing a cover of "Rose Rouge." To celebrate the 20th anniversary of Tourist, St Germain has invited UK, South Africa, USA, Reunion Island and France producers, DJs and remixers with various musical inspirations, from Deep House to Afro House and Chicago House.

"I would like to thank all the people I asked to travel through their favorite Tourist album track," Ludovic says. "Some of them worked on my last Africa-inspired album in 2015, like my dear friend Atjazz, who helped me a lot on this new project, and also Terry Laird DJ Deep and Traumer. I don't have to introduce highly respected newcomers such as Nightmares On Wax, Jovonn, Ron Trent, Black Motion, Osunlade and Jullian Gomes. I truly enjoy their passion for music, their personality and musical integrity. I know they've got soul!"
