About Shane Johnson
As one half of Fish Go Deep, Shane Johnson began his musical journey at the helm of Sir Henry’s groundbreaking house night, Sweat, moving on to play clubs and festivals in dozens of countries across the world. Since the late 1990s his studio productions with Greg Dowling have also travelled far and wide, hitting dancefloors and charts around the globe and clocking up more than 100 million streams across various platforms. In 2005 their own Go Deep imprint got off to a flying start when the first single off their debut album with Tracey K, The Cure and the Cause, was licensed by UK house giant, Defected, and became a huge club and chart hit. Since then, they have released two further albums, numerous EPs and have remixed a wide variety of house luminaries – Kerri Chandler, Alton Miller, K-Alexi and Charles Webster, to name a few. In 2017, their ‘Baby Tell Me’ EP, released on Chicago’s legendary Large Music label, became one of the top ten sellers of the year on the influential Traxsource download store. Fish Go Deep’s third album, This Bit of Earth, was released in 2021 and received praise and plays from a wide range of influential DJs: Laurent Garnier, Colleen ‘Cosmo’ Murphy, Osunlade, Jimpster, Franck Roger and many more. The follow up, ‘What I Mean By Beautiful’, is due for release in late 2023.
About Jamie Behan
Jamie Behan has been a central figure in the Irish techno scene for over two decades and is widely acknowledged as one the godfathers of Cork techno, through his long-running club night and label Bastardo Electrco, which traces its origins to the legendary Sir Henry’s. Behan’s sound stretches across techno, house, electro, old-school rave and further, an eclecticism that gained him a residency for the renowned Berlin party series Killekill. He has brought this funky brand of techno to clubs and festivals around Europe and beyond while releasing solo productions and collaborations on Bastardo Electrco, KilleKill, Nice & Nasty, & Shelter Records. Latest releases include a collaboration with Diarmaid O’Meara on Gobsmacked Records, and further collaborations with DJ Flush under “Cork Bangers” alias on KilleKill and other labels released in 2022.
