The three forgotten lovely ladies of deeps - Aki, Eri and Chika were practically picked up from a street corner.  Literally.  Imagine SPEED's vocal range at a much, lower pitch, identical music, awkward dance moves and more adult presentation.  You guessed it.  deeps.  (Spell is backwards for crying out loud.)  Hiromasa Ijichi, the brainchild of the four famous Okinawan girls, made the somewhat poor choice of creating a brand new girl unit with the initial objective to mirror SPEED's look and success only with a more mature targeted audience (think 20+ y/o females).  As expected, the unit bombed, being labeled as a cheap SPEED knock-off and in 1999, the girls took a hardcore GAL make-over, renaming their group to dps, sporting a somewhat trashy but infectious Euro-beat sound.

If you liked SPEED's sound but disliked the shrill, somewhat flimsy vocals, dps will rock your world.  Please leave a comment if downloading!

I have been looking for this band forever!!!

6 years or so back I bought a SPEED Memorial singles cd from chinatown (i think it was official) and it had two tracks from Deeps that since I couldn't read any japanese at the time didn't know what it meant and thought it might mean a member of speed was in it or something. Had Happiness and Virgin love, and I was in love with those songs... but lost the cd a while ago

Thanks for the tracks

Thanks for the deeps. I really really enjoyed EARTH, and I imagine that this will be great as well :D

Hmmm...I've never heard anything by them before. I'm going to take a few tracks and see how I like them (if you have any recommendations, that'd be great). Thank you for uploading this!

Hey, my friend asked if I could find "Love is Real" but the CD-Rom I had it on is corrupted and I can't copy it off. Any way you could just up that track for me? Thanks so much.
