William Yates is a talented multi-instrumentalist and producer from south Wiltshire, UK working under the name 'memotone'. 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, inspired by sounds of Susumu Yokota, Mount Kimbie, Shlohmo, Murcof, Flying Lotus and Four Tet.
We saw one of his videos on youtube and have loved his stuff ever since (the prolific composer already had an EP on Black Acre and other two EPs coming out on september and october) and found out that he was recently selected by Gilles Peterson for his always-amazing "All winners" show on BBC1. We wouldn't be surpised to see him hitting big soon, meanwhile please enjoy the free EP he made for Bad Panda Records and check out the interview after the jump!
