Bursting onto the scene in 2003 with their anthemic Ibiza-friendly sound, Matt Schwartz and Joel Edwards, aka Deepest Blue, quickly became a prominent force on the U.K. dance music scene. Schwartz, an Israeli-born classically trained violinist, moved to the U.K. to study music production, and had co-written "Dissolved Girl" for Massive Attack's Mezzanine album, later used on The Matrix soundtrack. Edwards was an accomplished songwriter working with the likes of Ed Case, Planet Funk, and Skin, and had remixed tracks under the guise of Dead Guys for the likes of Blondie, Chicane, and Texas. After being introduced by a mutual friend, the pair originally collaborated under the name of Zoom but released their self-titled first single as Deepest Blue in 2003 after signing to Ministry of Sound Records. They released their debut album, Late September, a year later, featuring the singles "Give It Away," a huge airplay hit in the U.K.; "Is It a Sin"; and "Shooting Star," which was later used as the theme music for Sky Sports News. In 2005, Schwartz and Edwards announced they would split in order to pursue solo projects. Schwartz released records via his own Destined record label while Edwards recorded an unreleased solo album for Mercury Records, only to be later dropped. Deepest Blue decided to reunite in 2007 and released their comeback single, "Miracle," a year later. ~ Jon O'BrienPortions of Content Provided by Rovi Corporation.
