FIFTY FATHOMS DEEP
Fifty Fathoms Deep is an independent record label run by Craig Smith & Peter Oakden. Anticipation has certainly been building for the labels first year of releases in 2013. The direction, aim and format of the label is simple: to explore their musical tastes and release quality music from unknown and recognised artists alike.
You’ll likely be familiar with Craig’s work already, with numerous releases on Freerange sister label Delusions of Grandeur, but most notably his output with Grahame Clark as 6th Borough Project. With both his production and label affiliations, Craig became a household name in 2008/9 with his famed disco re-edits helping give rise to the midtempo deep house style that continues to tear up dancefloors around the globe.
Craig & Peter are avaliable for DJ bookings as Fifty Fathoms Deep.
