Tiefschwarz was formed in 1996 by two brothers – Alexander and Sebastian Schwarz – who have been successful DJs for over a decade. Peter Hoff, who runs the Benztown studios in Stuttgart, completes the Tiefschwarz production team. Ali and Basti came up with the name for their project after a DJ gig. Tiefschwarz, which is German for ‘deep black’, is a mixture of their last name, Schwarz, and their love for deep house. Besides their work as resident DJs, Ali and Basti have been travelling together throughout Europe and overseas since 1995. They’ve played at countless major events and the most popular clubs in both Germany and Switzerland (Zürich, Geneva, Lausanne, Bern, Basel, etc.) as well as in major foreign cities, such as Miami (W.M.C.), New York, Washington, Melbourne, Sydney, Prague, Sarajevo, Amsterdam, Brussels, Antwerp, Rimini, Stockholm, London, Leeds, Sheffield, Ibiza, etc.
After six years of DJing and promoting, the two brothers began producing their own tracks. They co-founded the “continuemusics” label in 1996, on which their first single, “24 seven,” with remixes by Boris Dlugosh and Michi Lange, was released along with four other tracks.Tiefschwarz have remixed around 30 tracks for artists such as Ultra Naté, Byron Stingily, Jam & Spoon, Jennifer Paige, Randy Crawford, Master At Work, Earth Wind and Fire, Shakatak, Mousse T., AWA band, Whirlpool Prod., Sabrina Johnson and Sharon Philips. The name Tiefschwarz stands high alongside other legendary German acts such as Ian Pooley, Dixon, Jazzanova, Rainer Trüby, Ata and Vincenzo. As DJs, they have gained one of the greatest reputation on the international house scene and it is an honour for us to receive them Wednesday February 25th at the Phoenix Landing!
