Next up for London via Detroit artist Demi Riquísmo is an exciting six-track remix EP on his Semi Delicious record label. Demi, who has been receiving praise by many in the underground dance music scene, lined up a head-turning collection of reworks from Kassian, T.Jacques, Baby Rollen, Black Loops, Manual Darquart and Jive Talk. This isn’t your average remix EP, as each artist completely reinvents his work in their own unique way.
The EP opens straight away with a dancefloor destroying remix of ’54 Reasons’ by Kassian. A steady, up-tempo and commanding drum pattern set the stage from the get go, with a warm bassline being introduced around the minute mark. The vocal recalls dancefloor days with its intuitive charm, worthy of a chant in the club. Perfectly crafted synth-work guides the listener throughout the track but makes it to the spotlight when the kick and bass cease, just before guiding the listener back to the familiarity of the drum groove. All in all, the track has that classic Kassian take on house that we have grown fond of over the years.
Demi Riquísmo’s Remix EP ‘Reconfigured’ is out December 11th on Semi Delicious. ORDER
