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 1997 and in 2006 they reached number 1 on both the dance chart and indie chart with their track "The Cure & the Cause". The track featured vocals from Tracey Kelliher and was remixed by two soulful house veterans, Dennis Ferrer and DJ Memê.

"The Cure and the Cause" originally missed the UK Top 75 but was re-released later in the year where it finally became a hit in the UK, peaking at 23.

Past & Present[edit]

The duos first release was a 12" on Red Records entitled In Motion, which had a track called Silver on the flip side and was released under the name "Fish Go Tech" in 1994. Their first release as Fish Go Deep did not arrive until 3 years later. Another 12" called In Motion on the aptly named Eventual Records.


Both Greg & Shane played an integral part in the emergence of house music in Cork City between the years of 1988 and 2001 as their well renowned "Sweat" night at Sir Henrys helped to attract a host of talent, such as Kerri Chandler, Arnold Jarvis, Laurent Garnier, DJ Deep, Jerome Sydenham, Roger Sanchez, Glenn Underground, Boo Williams, Cajmere, Gemini, Derrick May, Kevin Yost, Migs, Rasoul and Fred Everything.

Along with fellow Cork Producer Mark O'Sullvian, they set up Ork recordings in 2005 with the help of the organising committee for Cork, European Capital of Culture 2005. The label is based in Cork, and Stockholm, Sweden and thus far has released singles such as ESL, Disco and Soul V.2, each of which have received critical acclaim from such producers as Jimpster (Free Range Records) and Charles Webster (Miso Records). Ork recordings was primarily set up as an electronic music outlet from which new and established artists can promote their work.
