If you’ve ever thrown a whisk at a piano repeatedly, or if you enjoy strapping drum pads to your hands and massaging a beluga whale; you may already have some idea what Memotone’s (aka William Yates, no not that William Yeats bard lovers…) music sounds like. There are elements of dubstep, IDM, classical music and electronica at play; but with anomalies like Aaliyah remixes, ethereal collaborations with Soosh and Leafcutter John and the occasional Farfisa organ solo, Memotone is a musical project that surprises and evolves as Yates appears to gain in confidence and popularity.
Largely Memotone’s self-promotion has included enigmatic videos, showcasing his nimble fingerwork and revealing a veritable toybox of instruments in his ‘studio’; some quite literally taken from a toybox. It’s a sign that his star is on the rise that he has recently released a stunning, pared down video to accompany stand out track ‘Clockwork Horse’ and a plethora of material being released to critical acclaim; including: a 3 track 12″ and digital release with Raised by Records (3rd October) [website] called ‘Memotone EP’; and another 4 track 12″ and digital release with Black Acre Records (31st October) [website] called ‘Lost Hours EP’.
