A couple of weeks ago, I wasn’t having a good-music day (I guess you all know what I mean). Later on, I was contacted by a young hiphop trio who turned my luck. Ceiling Demons, an alternative hiphop trio rising from Leeds have released their debut EP on December 2012. Twin brothers Psy Ceiling & Dan Demon, and their very good friend Jesster have been making music together for a number of years. Dan & Psy say “It makes a huge difference when you personally are very close with the people you make music with. It creates a vibe that makes you flow together when making music. “
An idea of making a tribute to a close friend who they lost, spurred them into this project. Their first release, ‘21st Birthday Blessings‘ is a gift from them to their lost friend which makes the song very personal and special. After writing, recording and mixing more songs, they got encouraged to get it out there by their friends as well as people whom they haven’t met before.
As a trio, each has a different source of inspiration. Dan & Psy write the lyrics and are the MCs while Jesster makes the beats and is in charge of the production. You can feel their excitement about creating their own music from their voice. They have a very large scale of musical inspiration which makes Ceiling Demons‘ music very rich.
Their self titled debut EP is a musical blend of darkness and light. My favourite tracks are ‘Legacies Left‘ and the opening track ‘Incarnadine‘, in which there are quotes from Marley and Lennon. According to Dan and Psy, Incarnadine is Jesster’s magic because he put the song together. This EP made a permanent transition into my iTunes and the good news is that, their new album is pretty much made, and I’m hoping to hear from them very soon. Here’s a playlist of The Ceiling Demons E.P , enjoy !
