Biography

Tiefschwarz are a German electro house group formed by two brothers, Ali Schwarz and Basti Schwarz in 1996.

They performed DJ sets in some of the biggest clubs in Germany and Switzerland as well as in major foreign cities and became increasingly popular in the house scene.

Full bio
Tiefschwarz was formed in 1996 by two brothers - Ali and Basti Schwarz - who have been successful DJs for over a decade. Peter Hoff, who runs the Benztown studios in Stuttgart, completes the Tiefschwarz production team. Ali and Basti came up with the name for their project after a DJ gig. Tiefschwarz, which is German for ‘deep black’, is a mixture of their last name, Schwarz, and their love for deep house.

In 1990 Ali opened the “on-u” club in Stuttgart, which became a pioneer of the German club scene. Three years later came the “red dog” club, which quickly became known throughout the world as a top address for deep house. Here, resident DJs Ali and Basti played alongside the likes of DJ greats such as Tony Humphries, Master At Work, Frankie Feliciano, Mike Dunn, Mousse T, Matthew Herbert, Lary Heard, Chris Coco, Matthias Heilbronn and many others.

Besides their work as resident DJs, Ali and Basti have been travelling together throughout Europe and overseas since 1995.
