Deepest Blue were an electronic music duo, comprised of Matt Schwartz and Joel Edwards, who were active from 2002-2005.
Their first single, the self-titled ‘Deepest Blue’, was released in 2003. The song was originally recorded as a different version, but did not gain any interest, but when it was re-recorded and released, it reached Number 7 in the UK charts. It was due to the song’s progressive house feel that the song gained interest, as the genre was popular at the time.

In February 2004, the pair released their second single, ‘Give It Away’. The song is a catchy, deep house song, which provided the duo with another Top 10 hit, reaching Number 9 in the UK Charts, and it’s probably my favourite song they’ve released.

Although their fourth single, ‘Shooting Star’, failed to reach the UK Top 40, it’s a great song due to the fantastic string arrangement; it’s powerful and instantly recognisable.
Released in August 2004, it was the fourth single taken from their debut album, Late September, but it was prominent for its use on Sky Sports News and Soccer Saturday from 2004 to 2007. It’s still used by Sky Sports as incidental music during UK football matches.
This song is epic as it showed just how diverse this duo were and it’s such a shame that they are no longer about – maybe a reunion should be put on the cards!
