Knee Deep

The Brothers label reveal the second remix installment from their exciting back catalogue overhaul of top German house production duo Knee Deep - a transformation into a brand new selection of singles which will later be released as a full compilation in the new year. 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, Kort and The Brothers themselves among others! Following the 2007 Latin club smash ‘Me Kumba’ makeover from Kort and The Brothers last month, the next single to receive a musical nip n’ tuck is the vocal club smash ‘Mysterious’ ft Shena. Providing a selection of magical soulful house mixes are US house legend Bobby D’Ambrosio and cool Swiss DJ/ producer, Mirco Esposito.


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 from the duo. This included Afro Medusa’s ‘Pasilda’, the huge Summer anthem of 2000.

Bobby’s buggest success was ‘I Like It Like That’ by the Blackout Allstars ft Tito Nieves, which was used in a national television commercial for Burger King, and in turn caused Columbia Records to re-release Bobby's production.
