Playlist of the Week: Demi Riquísimo
Playlist of the Week: Demi RiquísimoSeptember 13, 2023
Hey, I’m Demi Riquísimo, a producer and DJ from London. I run a label and event series called ‘Semi Delicious’, and this is a selection of some of the tracks I’ve been playing out in my sets as of late. I rarely stick to one genre when I’m DJing out and this collection sums up some of my favorite producers, including Fantastic Man, Jex Opolis and Aldonna. I’ll next be playing at our label takeover at Coroners Court in Bristol on the 23rd of September with Black Loops, Gallegos, Bex and Milly On Air.
Jex Opolis – Pneumatic [Good Timin’]
Jex has been one of my favorite producers for the last few years. Always pushing new sounds and surprises me with each release. This track is no exception.
Demi Riquísimo – Talk To Frank [Life And Death]
One of my own records, a track I’m still very happy with even though it came out a couple of months ago, and I’ve played it to death. Works well for warm-up sets and even peak time sets. I’m really happy to be a part of DJ Tennis’ Life & Death label, too.
Aldonna – Pisa 97 [Permanent Vacation]
Aldonna is an artist to watch out for and also part of the Semi Delicious family. I love this track that’s out on Permanent Vacation. Her production style is original and shines through the current prog fog that’s circulating.
Fantastic Man – Alltogethernow [Kalahari Oyster Cult]
I’ve been a huge fan of Fantastic Man for years. All his releases are so clean and exactly what I look for when searching for new music to sign and also play out. This one on the fantastic Kalahari Oyster Cult is a firm favorite.
Baldo – Ride The Night [Permanent Vacation]
This track from Baldo has been a go-to in my sets over the last nine months. Such a slamming hit.
Rex The Dog – Sicko [Kompakt]
“Sicko” by Rex The dog is one of my biggest inspirations for the music I make. Don’t think I need to say much more about it.
DJ Romain – All Day, All Night [Nite Grooves]
I’m a massive house head and this has always been one of my most treasured house tracks of all time. Always great to lift the mood.
Omri Smadar, Roy Shpilman – Adama [Hard Fist]
Omri Smadar was a DJ I met in Tel Aviv and was a guest at our Semi Delicious party at Hive Club in the heart of the city a while back. His music is instantly identifiable, and this track is a testament to that.
Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs – When the Lights Go (Paula Tape Remix) [Nice Age Music]
Paul Tape is an amazing DJ and producer that I’ve been a huge fan of for a while. Her sets and productions are always eclectic and distinguished and this remix of TEED is a perfect example of that.
Burnski – Trigger [Constant Sound]
To me, this is modern tech house at its finest: simple, stripped back, great groove, and a cutting bass. Hits hard in the club and normally slips into my sets when the time is right.
