Concrete Sounds presents Tiefschwarz

  • The name 'Tiefschwarz' is German for 'deep black', mixing Ali and Basti's last name with a homage to deep house. Hailing from Stuttgart, these days their signature blend of house, techno and bass-heavy electrohouse is one of Europe's biggest draws. "We don't have a musical background, we have a party background." Tiefschwarz have been DJing since 1995 but they're also producers, alongside silent partner Peter Hoff, who runs Benztown studios in Stuttgart. Together they have remixed everyone from Fischerspooner and Phonique to Missy Elliot and Madonna. Tiefschwarz first came to international attention in 2004, opening up the German take on electrohouse with their infectious remixes of Spektrum's 'Kinda New', Phonique's 'The Red Dress' and Unit 4's 'Bodydub'. Since then they've released three mix CDs ('Misch Masch','Timewarp' and 'Fabric 29'), all of which blended tuneful minimal, rifftastic electrohouse and darker edges. In 2006 Tiefschwarz started their own label, Souvenir Music. This year the brothers have just completed an Underworld Remix, a Mixmag covermount mix CD, a track called 'Liquid Cherries' which is to be exclusively released on Cocoon in Japan only and are currently working on a single on Souvenir, expected later this year. In between that, they will continue to DJ at their residencies at Robert Johnson (Frankfurt), Weekend (Berlin), We Love Space & Cocoon (Ibiza) and Fabric London as well as touring the rest of the world exhaustively as always!
