Jules Born's 'Memorybilia' EP

Stream Jules Born's warped pop melodies in the 8-track "Memorybilia" EP.

Jules Born is one-half of Voices of Black, an experimental electronic duo that's released music on Nicolas Jaar's Wolf + Lamb label and played shows with Little Dragon. Jules' debut solo effort Memorybilia is an 8-track collection of songs that he begrudgingly categorizes as 'urban contemporary,' a vast and vague tag recently co-opted by the Grammy's to describe "black music that’s not R&B and not hip-hop, I guess" he tells Vice. The producer/songwriter's soundscape on Memorybilia blends warped pop melodies with warm, hazed-out beats, as heard in the melancholic EP highlight "Alone In This Town."
