‘Silver Surfer’, ‘X O Surf’ and the ‘X O Surf remixes’, big tunes from the dance floors of 1993 will be rereleased via Violent Drum Recordings on September 4 2020.
The Deep, was the alias Matt Frost and Pete Diggens recorded under from 1993-1996.
Frost and Diggens released a stream of vinyl on own imprint Violent Drum and finished when Matt and Pete were discovered by Andrew Weatherall at Sabresonic which led them to sign to Leftfield’s Hard Hands label in 1997 as Dark Globe.
‘Silver Surfer’, ‘X O Surf’ and the ‘X O Surf remixes’ were created over a series of weekends in ’93. When you listen to the record you can hear Frost and Diggens try to create the sound of waves amongst the beats, they were also influenced by tracks like Pink Floyd’s 20-minute epic ‘Echoes’.
