For more than 12 years, the Stuttgart-born brothers Alexander and Sebastian Schwarz belong to the most respectable protagonists of an innovative understanding of House music. With their fondness for deep but also demanding House in between tradition and modernity, both look back on a merely endless list of co-operations and releases, where collaborations with Masters at Work, Underworld, Missy Elliott, Madonna and Depeche Mode are just the best-known top of the iceberg. After their contribution to the "Cocoon Morphs Tokyo"-EPs in 2008 ("Liquid Cherries") Tiefschwarz now rely on a percussive reduction with piercing handclaps and strong vocal samples ("Fall In"). A true pearl of a track is "Keep on", which initially leaves the leading role to the bass, combining it with delayed vocals and surprising noise effects before introducing some organic and jazzy elements in the form of organ and xylophone sounds. Deep and claustrophobic darkness - that's how Tiefschwarz are setting the first standard for modern House sound in 2010.
