Various Artists - SEMID005
Release Date: 1st April 2022
London’s very own groove master Demi Riquisimo brings forth 005 for his relentlessly class ‘Semi Delicious’ label. A various artist compilation with, alongside an absolute weapon from Demi himself, superb disco-ready rhythms from Jive Talk, Kassian and Vhyce.
Alongside the rolling drum kit samples, Demi layers cosmic lasers, 70’s clavinet and bucket loads of rolling basslines with this Afro re-edit! Vhyce’s disco chops meet retro 80’s synth arpeggios and huge filtering drops that will bring a slice of retro euphoria to your record bag.
On the flip, ‘Midnight District Line’ from Kassian takes a ride through the city with a rolling filter house workout. No unnecessary bits in this stripped back club weapon. Funky Rhodes and bright NY style 909 loops make this one primed for any time of the night. Jive Talk bring ‘UK Gary’, a re- edit teeming with expression from its live jazz drum sampling and sassy female vocals. Developing through the seven minutes with classic house sounds including THAT 90’s Korg organ sound!
