Fish Go Deep

In dance music terminology, the word "legendary" has been applied to events, DJs, and producers with such wanton disregard it has been rendered virtually meaningless. A DJ can play a "legendary" set to 250 people in a bar in San Francisco. A producer can make a "legendary" record of which only 2000 copies sell. Then again, there are clubs, DJs, and producers that really are (quote, un-quote) legendary. Sweat, at Sir Henry's, Cork, is one such club, and its two resident DJs, Greg Dowling and Shane Johnson -- who have manned the decks for a smidgen under a decade -- are two such men. Let's face it, anyone who's maintained a residency for that long has a right to the big L.

Given their status as DJs, producing was an easy transition for the two Irish dons. Why they chose the monikers Fish Go Deep (for the house project) and Fish Go Tech (for the tech-house project) is a mystery, but they must have their reasons. Initial releases appeared on labels such as Red, Tuna, and Eventual before Kevin Yost's i! Records picked up four EPs. With a keen ear for the slamming deep house track, David Duriez also licensed a few releases for his Brique Rouge imprint. More recently, Mazi's Gourmet Records, Neil Aline's Chez, and Darran Nugent's excellent Elevation Recordings have taken the proverbial bait. Who will be next?

"Could Have Been Pt.2" is taken from the Half Step EP on Brique Rouge. The David Duriez remix of "How Do You Feel" is taken from the How Do You Feel EP by kind permission of Elevation Recordings.
