About Dem One:
For the past 10 years Demone “Dem One” Carter has toiled in the San Jose underground Hip Hop scene building a small contingent of loyal followers. Among this cult following are some the west coast most prominent emcees, producers, and dj’s. On his latest endeavor the “Audio Still Life’ Dem One steps out of the shadows and collaborates with his Hip Hop mentors to create a break out project that is poised to put him amongst the best in the independent Hip Hop sphere . Audio Still Life is an 8 track EP which features production from Da Hermit (Insolence, YZ, Motion Man), D-Styles (Third Sight), and Hen Boogie (Dereliks, Sadat X). The EP is for the most part autobiographical with Dem One taking us through a series of songs informed by 30 plus years of life experience. Straying from false bravado and battle rap clichés cuts like “Oh Lord’ featuring Motion Man deal honestly with coming of age and the internal conflicts emcees face. The lead single “Timeline” features production and cuts by D-Styles is a year by year recounting of Dem One’s growth as a person and emcee. With a delivery that has been compared to Common and Black Thought Dem One showcases his song writing prowess over a diverse sound track created by some the most original producers in the underground Hip Hop genre.You might also be interested in:
