Today’s post is a great remix of a great track, from a great band, for a great cause. Aapie introduced me to the Ceiling Demons and has posted a number of their tracks, today it’s my turn.
It’s a remix by Fold of their track ‘Every Step Is Moving Me Up’. The original is fantastic and samples another great track: This is how we walk on the moon by Arthur Russell – Aapie has posted this track up before. This remix changes it up nicely – underpinned by a frankly stonking, driving beat, not to dissimilar to say Bear Witness, it’s stripped back but beautifully atmospheric.
The other great thing is that this remix appears on a digital release of Every Step… to support a great cause. It is supported by the charity CALM (Campaign Against Living Miserably) [reg. charity no. 1110621], who are dedicated to preventing male suicides which is the biggest killer of men under 50 in the UK, with the aim of raising both awareness and funds for the charity. The tracks aim is to provide a positive and uplifting message which aims to help people who are suffering from mental health issues such as depression.
To help raise awareness for CALM, the Demons are putting together a bundle for auction that includes a signed copy of Dual Sides, limited edition Amputated Spirit CD, Ceiling Demons T-shirt, stickers, badges, setlists, original paintings & ‘Every Step Follow the Light’ artwork by Tim Coomber. The auction will start on the 25th November and end 5th December. The single will be available on iTunes, Amazon, Spotify, Deezer as well as a ‘name your price” via bandcamp, with all proceeds going to CALM.
Coming from a family that has had members battle with mental illness and depression, is great to see such a charity and see it get support. So please do support if you can.. And get some great music at the same time.
