Goldfish have released an official remix of their single, “Deep of the Night” featuring Diamond Thug, which came out a few months a go with a touching music video. The remix comes from Slaptop, who also just provided opening sets for Goldfish at their GoldFest shows at the Mezzanine in San Francisco on March 10th & 11th. The original version of “Deep of the Night” serves as the lead single to Goldfish’s forthcoming album, due out later in 2017. Slaptop’s remix is a heavier club makeover, sprinkling in scarce Diamond Thug vocals into a decisively more rhythmic-centric house beat.
The story of “Deep of the Night” begins where it all started for these life long musicians – the beaches nestled around Cape Town, South Africa. Dominic Peters and David Poole were driving home from late evening surf, casually listening to the radio and serendipitously stumbled across a first, and what turned out to be only – play of a new band called Diamond Thug. Dom and Dave were instantly hooked, and tracked down the band, who coincidentally also lived in Capetown. A jam session was set up at the Goldfish studios and so, a song was born. “We’re all seeking inspiration to create something great, but you never know when it will strike – it might be in the deep of the night,” the band states.
