Tiefschwarz Feat. Basti (Germany/Souvenir Sound)

In a world of ever- changing trends, TIEFSCHWARZ (deep black) is the most timeless of hues: it has style, depth, intrigue and above all staying power. And with a DJ & Producer career spanning more than 14 years to date, the German deep house duo has proven just how apt their moniker has turned out to be.
Born and bred in Stuttgart, brothers Ali and Basti Schwarz’s passion for techno and deep house was largely driven by their experiences in the early 90’s as DJs at the now legendary clubs that Ali ran in their home town, "ON -U" (1990 - 1993) and "Red Dog" (1993 - 1997). Around 1997, the brothers decided to begin producing and embarked on their joint venture as TIEFSCHWARZ, releasing their first single “Music” on Wave Music (New York) in 1998. The success of their debut spurred them to record their first album “Ral 9005”, released on the Stuttgart-based label Four Music in 2000. The album was subsequently licensed to Classic Recordings in London in 2002, putting TIEFSCHWARZ on the map in the UK and laying the groundwork for international notoriety. In the same year, Classic also released Ali & Basti’s mix album “A Little Help For Your Friends” and both releases were enthusiastically received by the English and international press. 2002 was also the year that TIEFSCHWARZ relocated to the electronic mecca of Berlin, where they worked closely with Jochen Schmalbach. They continued to nurture their careers as international DJs, playing high-profile venues across the globe whilst simultaneously building up an impressive remix repertoire, including reworks for the likes of Masters at Work, Ultra Naté, Freaks, Isolee, The Rapture, Cassius, Minimal Compact, DJ Hell, Missy Elliot and Kelis. TIEFSCHWARZ cemented their status as internationally recognised producers with their remix of Spektrum (“Kinda New”) which was a worldwide hit. Around the same time, the brothers helped create “Fine Records” in London (a division of Four Music, their former label in Germany) where they released their fantastic 'Misch Masch' album, which not only showcased their talent as DJs but also their remix skills on a double CD release. Ali and Basti then turned their attention back to writing and producing their own material. The resulting album (“Eat Books”) was met with critical acclaim, with the first single “Isst” being voted one of the best singles of the year in 2005 by Trax and DJ Magazine.
