Fish Go Deep on FMP
Greg Dowling and Shane Johnson have been playing records in public since the late 1980s. Their residency at Ireland’s longest running and best known house night, Sweat at Sir Henry’s in Cork, spanned more than a decade and influenced a generation of Irish clubbers and DJs. Since finishing Sweat in 2001, Fish Go Deep’s travels have taken them to clubs across Europe, the Middle East, Asia, and throughout the US and Canada. During that time, they have been busy creating original House music in an emotive and signature style. Fish Go Deep releases have appeared on labels like Brique Rouge, Chez Music, Defected, NRK, Innervisions, Strictly Rhythm and Gourmet Recordings. Fish Go Deep released two EPs on Gourmet. As neither project is available any longer we thought this was the ideal time to put together our favorite tracks from those EPs. We reached out to Greg and Shane and successfully licensed four tracks from the Gourmet EPs for an outing on Fresh Meat. The newly remastered versions of “Music’s Got Me”, “Music’s Dubbed Me”, “Follow”, and “2 Dings” have been compiled and released as the “Meat and Two Fish” EP. All four tracks are prime examples of Fish Go Deep’s timeless production style. In contrast to so many overwrought and quickly outdated tracks, these have remained as alive and vital as the day they were penned. To celebrate this release we present a one hour long DJ mix by Shane and Greg where the gents go through a host of their favorite cuts from the near past.
