Fans of St Germain's old work might find little that's instantly recognizable from Tourist, which was part of Navarre's strategy. "I had to stop completely, I just had to take a break from music," he told The Independent. "I realised that I didn't want to do something like Tourist again – I needed to do something new." A lot has changed since French producer Ludovic Navarre released his multi-platinum album Tourist in 2000 under the name St Germain. Trend pieces lumped St Germain in with Cassius and Daft Punk as purveyors of "the French Touch." In the intervening 15 years, there have been three French presidents, and trends in dance music have moved far beyond the realms of nu-jazz and downtempo, Navarre's métier at the turn of the century.
