Fish Go Deep are an Irish production duo consisting of Greg Dowling and Shane Johnson from Cork city. They have been releasing house records under this name since 1997 and in 2006 reached number 1 on both the UK dance chart and indie chart and also reached number 23 in the singles chart with their track “The Cure and the Cause”.
Both Dowling and Johnson played an integral part in the emergence of house music in Cork City between 1988 and 2001, and ran the “Sweat” night at Sir Henrys, which attracted acts such as Kerri Chandler, Arnold Jarvis, Laurent Garnier, DJ Deep, Jerome Sydenham, Roger Sanchez, Glenn Underground, Boo Williams, Cajmere, Gemini, Derrick May, Kevin Yost, Migs, Rasoul and Fred Everything.
Glenn Davis is an Irish DJ and producer with a preternatural gift for making dance music inject with soul. His F*CLR may as well be a tribute to the spirit and vibe of the eponymous New York City party – I doubt it is but classic NYC vibes were all I heard on this one. I’ve never been fond of making this claim but as the title track unwound, the first thing I thought was that I could completely hear this as the bedrock of a Frankie Knucklesbirthday set at Boom Boom Room.
The aforementioned Ashley Beedle gives it a kick of beautiful bass and teases that irresistible groove so well – it’s just shameless in catering to a dancefloor’s primal desires. All four tracks are glittering gems. Everything you think of that represents the best of house music – it’s right here..
