Born and raised in Detroit but now residing in London, Demi Riquísimo is building a dedicated following and catching the eye of many big-name tastemakers. His distinctive
sound, an eclectic beast of acid, disco and italo influence, has gained him wide acclaim across several releases on his own Semi Delicious label.
Divine Reality EP is Riquísimo’s first outing with Shall Not Fade, on the established Lost Palms series. It’s a headsy affair, opening up with the title track and its driving beat, which pairs well with the blissed out and glimmering pads. You can feel the disco influence on ‘Local Chain’, all subtle strings and pops of guitar over the muted house rhythm that gets feet moving. High-octane B1 ‘This is The Limit’ is an acid roller with clever use of diva vocal samples, maximalist and infectious. The EP closes on ‘Green Machine’, a percussive track that lifts from sound palettes of the 1980s in dramatic and melancholic synth melodies that are completely danceable – a climactic number with instant appeal.
