Seemingly from nowhere, burgeoning producer Demi Riquísimo makes an instant impact with a debut vinyl-only white label on fledgling imprint Semi Delicious. ‘A Lifetime On The Hips’ exquisitely blends a fierce array of analog House, Acid and Disco in a tasty four-tracker that is already setting dance floors on fire as early AAA promos find their way into the hands of DJs like Âme, Horse Meat Disco, HiFi Sean, Rex The Dog, Philippe Zdar and Auntie Flo.
A statement of intent in every way, the releases launches into action with the wavy, undulating club number ‘Sarong Song’ on which Demi showcases his dancefloor-focussed style in a track textured with crisp percussion and cosmic stabs – a certified club heater. Backing this up is the EP title track, ‘A Lifetime On The Hips’ – a punchy, retro synth fitted cut that is filled with a sultry looped vocal and keeps things sounding fresh for its almost seven minute runtime.
On the flip and picking up where the A-side left off, ‘Vernon’ builds the atmosphere with a rolling, acid-tinged groove and Disco-fuelled breakdown that isn’t afraid to lean heavily on its old school inspiration to get feet moving. Demi then signs off with the final cut, ‘Lost Quay’, which closes out the EP in a trippy, tribal infused fashion and is one to fully lose yourself in.
Brought up in Detroit and now residing in London, Demi Riquísimo is no stranger to the scene through other projects ad has been quietly perfecting his art for many years, resulting in a seriously polished release that holds no punches. The first in a series of vinyl-only releases, ‘Lifetime On The Hips’ is setting Demi up to be one of 2019’s biggest success stories and most talked-about producers.
