The label has a simple mantra; no frills club cuts designed for the dancefloor. For their first outing, Demi Riquísimo has enlisted some of the most exciting upcoming & established talent from across the globe for a heavyweight VA of all killer, no filler vinyl only goodness.
HIPS001 features tracks from Abdul Raeva, Aldonna, Donald’s House, Inner Zone & Demi himself.

The A-side consists of tracks from Estonian duo and Gestalt Records figureheads Abdul Raeva, Overdrive & the hotly tipped Aussie Aldonna. HIPS001 opens with the driving, yet dreamy ‘Invasive Overdrive Track’, a versatile weapon that encapsulates modus operandi of LOTH. ‘Inner Elation’ completes the A-side. Rhythmic percussion, shamanic vocals, acidic womps and sharp stabs characterize this progressive bomb.
The flip kicks off with the main man Demi Riquísimo on the buttons. ‘Maggy Doesn’t Need To Know’ is a jam that could easily pass as an Italian House holy grail from the depths of Discogs. Subtle house chords, a groovy bassline and ethereal vocal samples combine for a soft top down, cruiser of a track. London based trio Inner Zone contribute the fourth rhythm of LOTH’s debut outing with ‘The Vision’. A menacing beat that twists and turns for a peak time, dopamine inducing trip. We travel back to Oz to close out HIPS001 with brothers Donald’s House and ‘Jam 3’. More hands in the air, progressive elation – one you’ll be hearing a lot this year so get to know!
Raised in Detroit, London-based Demi Riquísimo is gaining worldwide recognition for his standout acid, italo house and disco-inspired sonic palette with support from the likes of Seth Troxler, DJ Tennis, Octo Octa, TEED, Ed (The Chemical Brothers), Artwork, HAAi, Optimo, CC:Disco, The Blessed Madonna and many more. He kicked off 2023 off in style playing his debut for Circoloco at DC-10 in Ibiza on NYD – check out some videos here. Milestones like this signal just the tip of the iceberg with a slew of fantastic gigs and releases yet to be announced.
