After flying onto our radar with the "Light Years Away" tune we shared earlier this year, Dutch up-and-comer FilosofischeStilte (born Luuk Graham) has handed over a cut from his forthcoming digital EP for Saturate. "Memoirs" is a playful track with an undoubtedly unique sound palette: Squeaky synths, manipulated choir samples, and hip-hop-tinged drumwork each take their time to shine the spotlight. And despite the fact that the melodic elements of Graham's track generally move in a somewhat repetitious pattern, it's nonetheless compelling to hear these bold sounds bounce off each other as the production unfolds. "Memoirs" will appear on FilosofischeStilte's Home Grown EP when it's released on August 16.
