BodytonicLive 08 : Fish Go Deep
Fish Go Deep
They will need no introduction to Bodytonic regulars, but for the rest of you Fish Go Deep are an Irish production duo consisting of Greg Dowling and Shane Johnson from Cork. They have been releasing house records under this name since 1998 and in 2006 they reached number 1 on both the dance chart and indie chart with their track "The Cure & the Cause". Both Greg and Shane played an integral part in the emergence of house music in Ireland at Sir Henrys in Cork between 1988 and 2001, laying the foundations for later house collectives, such as ourselves!
Earlier this year at Electric Picnic, the lads played one of the best sets of the weekend on a Friday night, as part of a Fish Go Deep 20th Birthday celebration. We present that set to you this week, along with a brief interview:
What's the secret to your longevity?
Stay true. If you're not feeling it, do something else.
Describe the last 20 years in three words
What would you be doing if you weren't making music/DJing?
Greg - running a pizza parlour. Shane - golf professional.
Where do you see House going for the next 20 years?
Looking back over the last 20 years is there anything you would do differently?
Get off our arses and into the studio earlier.
Have either of you ever left the house without a Kerri Chandler record in the bag?
Just the once - May 15th 1996. Disastrous!
Most under-rated DJ/Producer out there over the years?
Always thought Paul Hunter/Second Crusade from Glasgow should have got more props. Great producer, anyone know what he's doing these days?
Where outside of Ireland has been exciting to play?
Why did some tunes become huge in Cork that were virtually unheard of anywhere else?
With our weekly residency we didn't have to hit people over the head with the music. We were able to break a track over a few weeks or even months so if there was an obscure little number we liked then we had the freedom to make it a big track.
Was there REALLY limits on the decks at Sweat to stop people playing more than 120bpm?
What do you think?
No tracklist available...if you have a track ID, why not post it in a comment?
