On the road again...

After a storming September Go Deep party (great turnout and vibe - thanks to all who came along), we're back in the lovely Pavilion Theatre for an extra-niiice Cork Jazz Festival special on bank holiday Sunday, October 30th. That weekend is always one of the busiest of the year here in Cork so do get down early.

Before all that madness, we're back on the road over the next few weeks, taking in trips to Amsterdam, Porto, Ankara and Glasgow. The first of those is a tasty looking evening at the Amsterdam Dance Event, where Greg will be playing with Andre Lodemann, Roy Davis Jr, Alton Miller, Andy Roberts and more as part of the Mixed Signals Music label showcase. Should be a blast. More details here. And further info on those other dates next week.

Second Chances and New Romances Volume 2

Having only recently discovered the delights of Denmark's Noir Music label - check out the Solomun remix of Around by Noir and Haze for a prime example of their excellent output - it came as a pleasant surprise to find an edit of our remix of Cyclone on their latest release, Second Chances and New Romances Volume 2.

Jamie Anderson and Mr K Alexi were responsible for the original of Cyclone and we had a lot of fun working on the remix around this time last year - in our books, any day you get to do hip-house is a good day. It was released on the Mija label, did very nicely at the time and has since gone on to enjoy a lengthy afterlife - being re-released on vinyl, showing up on a bunch of compilations and now getting a tasty mix-friendly edit for this release.


Ever Wonder (Fish Go Deep Remix) - Alton Miller ft Abacus

Alton Miller is one of those rare producers that has been consistently producing quality music with a minimun of fuss for many years - no flavour-of-the-month hype, no bandwagon-jumping, just soulful, grown-up house. From early 90's gems on KMS and Serious Grooves to more recent releases on Peacefrog, Seasons and Clone, his music has long been and still is essential listening.

So when Andy Roberts, label boss at Toronto's Mixed Signals Music, asked us to remix one of the tracks from Alton's forthcoming album, we needed all of, oooh, about two seconds to say yes. Andy sent us the album, Light Years Away, and on first listen Ever Wonder jumped out at us - beautiful chords over a great groove, topped with a sweet vocal line. Plenty to work with.

We're not the quickest studiobots on the block but this remix came together pretty fast. We went with a stripped back groove for the first half - cutting up the keys and filtering them down to just the low end - before introducing a new Rhodes piano and the full vocal line half way through. Some extra percussion and a synth line mirroring the vocal melody takes it home.


Nothing (Fish Go Deep Remix) - Version

We usually only take on a couple of remixes each year but, in 2010, we worked our way through a whole bunch of them... The Broad Bean Band, Jamie Anderson ft Mr K Alexi, Chymera, Exit Pursued By a Bear and this one, by Charles Webster and Martin Iveson's Version project.

Actual size. Well, almost.'Nothing' features the wonderful voice of Emilie Chick and was a real pleasure to work on. Our little Doepfer Dark Energy monophonic synth had just arrived and we made full use of it in the remix, most obviously in that thick, creamy low line that goes a bit potty towards the end. For such a small piece of kit, it produces a hell of a sound.

Other remixes in the package are by Marlon D and Atjazz and it's in shops on Miso Records right now.
