FISH GO DEEP BIOGRAPHY
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 club, Sweat at Sir Henry's in Cork, spanned more than a decade and influenced a generation of Irish clubbers and DJs, picking up numerous awards and accolades along the way.
Since finishing Sweat in 2001, Fish Go Deep's travels have taken them to clubs across Ireland, the UK, Europe the Middle East and Asia and throughout the US and Canada. During that time they have also hosted many of the world's top house deejays at their hometown Go Deep residency.
They have presented the Go Deep radio show on Cork's Red FM since 2004 and also broadcast weekly on Istanbul's Power FM and monthly on Ireland's national music station, 2fm.
Greg and Shane have been producing music under the Fish Go Deep name since 2000, earning widespread praise from deejays, dancers and journalists around the globe.
The duo's earliest work appeared on New Jersey's seminal i! Records and more than thirty releases have followed on labels such as Brique Rouge, Gourmet, Chez Music, Defected, NRK, Innervisions and Strictly Rhythm.
Fish Go Deep tracks have been included on dozens of compilations, on labels in the US, Canada, UK, France, Spain, Netherlands, Italy, Germany, Ireland, South America and South Africa.
In 2005 Greg and Shane launched two of their own imprints - Ork Recordings, with fellow Corkman, Mark O'Sullivan, and Go Deep. To date, releases on both labels have found favour with such heavyweight DJs as Louie Vega, Timmy Regisford, Laurent Garnier, Charles Webster, Dixon, Jimpster and Ame and have been licensed to many different territories.
The Cure and the Cause, a collaboration with singer/songwriter, Tracey K, was a huge underground hit throughout 2006 and, after a re-release by house giant, Defected, spent the final weeks of that year in the UK Top Forty Chart. A US release followed on Strictly Rhythm in 2007. The follow-up single with Tracey K, Battery Man, spent several weeks near the top of the Traxsource charts during Autumn 2008 and many further productions and remixes are due in 2009.
