M e m o t o n e
William Yates aka Memotone (UK) is a young multi-instrumentalist and producer in the reaches of electronica. His sound is made up of layered instrumentation over the top of field recordings, conversation, atmospheres and electronica programming all tied up with live acoustic come wonky MPC built beats, although that is not where it ends.
His music expresses his current focus on nostalgia and memory – trying to express a feeling you get in the present of a feeling you had in the past.
Memotone is trying to look at music in a different light, but feels he still has some way to go before he really gets onto something special. He wants to make music that people can relate to, but that is also fresh and yet slightly alien.
He was invited to join the Black Acre family, signing a 4 track EP Multicolour with a remix from Lukid. (released on the 28th of March 2011. 12″ Vinyl and MP3). He is now working towards more releases with Black Acre Records and has been chosen to be the first release on the young new label ‘Raised By Records’ with an 2 track EP called ‘Nightwalks’.
I'm totally in love with all his work. Really brilliant and beautiful!
This is e Sampler of the amazing Multicolour album that im loving!
