deeps (ディープス) was a Japanese pop idol group from 1997 to 2002. After 1999, the group was also known as dps.
The group formed in 1997 with egg models AKI, CHIKA, and HIRO under the supervision of Izichi Hiromasa. The group got their name from Izichi, who got their name "deeps" from his other group SPEED (as deeps is backwards from the word speed). The group released their first single, entitled "Love is Real", soon after their formation. But soon after, HIRO left the group and was replaced by ERI. This changed didn't hurt the group as their second single, "Happiness", became the group's first hit as it sold over 100,000 copies.
In 1999, deeps changed their name to "dps" after parting ways with Izichi. The group would experiment with a new sound by changing their sound to an "Eurobeat style". But, this didn't help the group as sales started to decline. Two years later, their contract with Pioneer LDC expired after releasing the best hits album 19 Pieces. This would force dps to release their final single, "Bloom'n Blue", on an indies label. The group broke up a year later in 2002 after their fanclub closed.
