Something about Dubfire:It was a risk. Perhaps even a gamble. But whatever it was, Ali ‘Dubfire’ Shirazinia's decision to go solo in 2005 was anything but easy. Together with Sharam Tayebi he had conquered house music under the name Deep Dish, a partnership which began in 1991 in Washington DC. On their way to the top, Deep Dish released acclaimed dance classics beginning with the 1995 remix of De'Lacy 'Hideaway', and went on to work with an eclectic array of names in pop, rock and electronica. Together they won a Grammy, among many other high-profile awards, and became one of the most respected DJ acts in the world.Having firmly established the reputation of Deep Dish as pioneers amongst the greats of electronic music, no one would have blamed Dubfire for resting on his laurels. But despite the odds and dance music history being stacked against him, he decided to go it alone. Dubfire’s first solo release was a remake of the 1989 Love And Rocket’s classic ‘I Feel Speed’. The track symbolically and sonically marked a crossroads in Shirazinia’s music career, fusing Deep Dish’s vocal-driven progressive house with darker, edgier sounds. Dubfire continued to quietly release a string of remarkable tracks, and in 2007 he founded SCI+TEC Digital Audio as an outlet to release his new music, much of which was inspired by his musical roots - a kaleidoscope of influences that spanned punk, new wave, industrial, dub, hip hop, house and techno.Dubfire kept experimenting and evolving his sound. 2007’s electro-tech track ‘Raodkill’ edged Dubfire ever closer to a techno sensibility, while the stripped-back ‘Ribcage’ showed his appetite for exploring the cutting-edge. Soaked in minimal atmospherics, ‘Ribcage’ was the first ever release on Loco Dice’s much-heralded Desolat label, and it became an instant classic.
