EP Review: Life’s Got You Riveted – Oloff

oloff EP cover

OLOFF emerged into the NEW LEASE MUSIC spotlight for the second time with his latest EP, Life’s Got You Riveted, released earlier this month.

Described as genre-bending by the Bristolian alternative emcee, the four-track set offers up some real slick vintage hip-hop which works in unison with the (respectfully) wayward delivery that’s very similar to Mike Skinner from The Streets. It’s worth a listen – check it out!

Song of the Day: Closing the Journal (ft Pip Mountjoy) – Ceiling Demons

ceiling Demons Dual Sides EP

Today’s song is Closing the Journal by British alternative hip-hop duo CEILING DEMONS. The track is coming from their thought- provoking  LP, Dual Slides, released in December.

CEILING DEMONS consists of Yorkshire-born twin brothers MCs Psy Ceiling & Dan Demon – and let me tell you they are a force to be reckoned with. Upon its release, Dual Sides received raving reviews in their hometown.

No doubt their bizarrely angelic stamp on hip-hop will spread across the globe in no time.  Just have a listen to Closing the Journal as it’s the perfect introduction to their bitter/sweet fusion with let-the-truth be-told and hard-hitting lyrics. The production is topped off by BBC Introducing’s unsigned singer/songwriter Pip Mountjoy’s soothing vocals.

The hip-hoppers were described as a cross between THE STREETS’  Mike Skinner and DJ SHADOW – the truth is they’re definitely in a league of their own. If you’re feeling Closing the Journal, pop over to their Bandcamp page and check out the album.

You can say hi to the guys @CeilingDemons.
