Dual Sides, the debut album from Yorkshire’s hip-hop ensemble Ceiling Demons met with the approval of Louder Than War earlier this year (see our review here) and one of the stand-out tracks is set to be released as a digital single.
Every Step Is Moving Me Up will feature a brand new mix by Fold which we are premiering below. The release is supported by mental health charity CALM who aim to raise awareness of male suicide, the biggest killer of UK men under the age of 50.
