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!

Thanks! I'm always a sucker for late-90s idol groups...
