Demons - It's Golden Now

I was realizing how under-represented Paul Kim (aka 1/2 of Demons) is on this blog.  Another formidable pillar of the the Dekalb music scene in the aughts, he's been making sample based music for the better part of the last 5 years or so with fellow pillar, Sam Cholke, under the guise of Demons.  I'm not sure of their exact process(es) but Demons always achieves a completely natural-sounding approach to sampling records and creating beats on top of them.  This particular EP features Elena Haliczer (yet another Dekalb acquaintance of theirs, presumably) singing over top of old soul and R&B samples.  In a sense, it's almost as if they are creating brand new soul "standards" by using the very elements of the originals that made them standard in the first place.  This EP goes well with a gin and tonic whilst thinking of someone you love.  You can download this EP for free and many more Demons releases at their bandcamp.
