Purveyors of obscure hip-hop; Ceiling Demons are an alternative group hailing from Northern England, seeking to capture the rawness of human emotion in their music & words. The group first came together to pay tribute to a lost friend, a theme that has permeated the music ever since. Comprising of twin brothers; Psy Ceiling & Dan Demon, they have garnered support from the likes of Tom Robinson & Nemone from BBC Radio 6 Music as well as a variety of regional presenters from the BBC Introducing programme. Having supported the likes of Young Fathers, Sleaford Mods and Busdriver as well as festival appearances at Tramlines, Doune The Rabbit Hole and Evolution Emerging, the Demons released the experimental ‘Belly of the Hopeless’ in May 2016 via Frux Tapes. Embodying the spirit of punk and the heart of trip-hop, the EP attracted attention from the likes of Earmilk and Louder Than War, with the latter rating it 9/10. 2016 also saw the Demons make their vinyl debut with a split 7″ release of their single ‘Lost the Way’. on the Leeds based singles club Come Play With Me.
Nottingham based Shelter Point broke onto the scene in only a few years ago with “Forever for Now” instantly winning the ears of tastemakers world-over. Since then the pair have released a slim catalogue of music whilst setting their sights on pulling together a debut album. Some of these releases include ‘Glass Into Gold’ and ‘Pale’ on RCA/Sony, both of which musically continue an impressive run of form from a duo who began their musical story only a few years prior. “Glass Into Gold” has acquired a huge 500k streams online and have won fans in Annie Mac, Huw Stephens and Zane Lowe and the like.
The pair’s early, dense soundscapes hinted at the astral sounds of Boards of Canada and Mount Kimbie, providing the perfect backdrop for their signature haunting vocals. Developing their trademark sound with a series of tactile exercises in melancholy electronica, Shelter Point look set to impress once more.
They’ve also recently been working with 3 times Grammy winner Steve Dub, who has worked with Leftfield, Prodigy, New Order, UNKLE, Chemical Brothers, Primal Scream, Beth Orton, Roots Manuva and Underworld.
Fresh new tunes created by an accidental collision of signal transmissions in outer space, we record what we intercept. #spicy
Oya Paya is three smelly twenty-somethings living in Liverpool. Hailing from different corners of the globe, Ashwin, Saam and Maxime came together to put their own spin on homemade, alternative-indie-rock. Having started their journey in early 2016, Oya Paya is steadily building momentum with a series of upcoming shows and new music on the cards. All of their creations come from within the comfort of their cosy little bedrooms.
