The Brothers label unleash a brand new project which sees top German house production duo Knee Deep get a complete overhaul of their fantastic back catalogue – a transformation into a brand new selection of singles which will later be released as a full compilation. Each song will be remixed by a well known artist in the house music scene including the likes of Bobby D’Ambrosio, Louis Benedetti, Aaron Ross and The Brothers themselves, among others.

The first single to get the make over is the 2007 Latin club smash ‘Me Kumba’ from Kort who delivers a techy driving percussive fest riding under the chant that breaks down into a quirky ska flavoured guitar hook before exploding back into the chugga-chugga party beats. The Brothers adopt a deeper minimal vibe delivering a smoking groove that toys with heavy beats and an injection of old school house style filtered key stabs for the late night floors.

Knee Deep aka Basti Döhring and Toddie Freese, met in Hamburg’s club scene. Their first release in 1998: D’Influence ‘Rock With You’ was an instant international success. Soon big names including David Morales, Bob Sinclair, Everything But The Girl, Blaze, Rhianna, Basement Jaxx, Kerri Chandler and Jamiroquai requested remixes or production work from the duo. This also included Afro Medusa’s ‘Pasilda’, the huge Summer anthem of 2000. Since then they have gone on to produce, remix an incredible selection of dancefloor favourites working alongside artists such as Rasmus Faber, Sharlene Hector, Jamie Lewis, Timmy Vegas, Kenny Bobien, Brooke Russell and many more. These releases appeared on their own labels KneeDeep Recordings (Est. 2003) and KneeDeep u.s.a (Est. 2005). Basti & Toddie have an extensive travel schedule performing all over the world including, Switzerland or Spain, Belgium, France, Hamburg, London, Ibiza and Miami. In recent times Basti has enjoyed huge solo success with his ‘Lovebirds’ recording monika, releasing a host of fantastic singles including the current smash ‘I Want You In My Soul’.

Swiss duo The Brothers are Edoardo Carlucci and Franco Lenti aka DJ Franky Fresh and have known each other since they were 6 years old. In 2002 they decided to set up a label and host parties to keep the house scene alive in response to the arrival of Electro that was dominating clubs, they ran the popular house nights for 8 years. In 2010 house music arrived back in favour and The Brothers got busy producing their own music. They released their debut single,‘Breathless’, in Spring 2011 with vocalist Lisa Millet and mixes from Louis Benedetti Panevino Music. Since then The Brothers have released premier soulful house cuts on their own label of the same name including artists such as Franky Fresh, The Brothers feat. Jim C, Jam P and Nuutube feat. Melissa Lischer among others, with forthcoming new projects coming from Lisa Millett, Victor Simonelli, Roberto de Carlo, Ralf Gum, Aaron Ross, Mirco Esposito, Mirco Caruso and Mike La Funk to name a few.

Ben Webb and Chris Jordan are the names behind KORT (AKA ‘Knights Of The Round Table’). They won the prestegious Defected producer competition with ‘Tomorrow’ which was licensed across many Defected compilations and signed to Copyright Recordings as a single release. Since then the boys have gathered some serious momentum enjoying success with further releases including Copyright’s ‘One Track Minds/ Voices’, ‘I Can’t Help Myself’ ft Andrea Love (Axiz Trax), ‘Sax Education’ ft Rico Novo, ‘Good Times’ ft Jessie Matthews and ‘Rumours’ on the Soul Avengerz Soda Records.
