There are few artists
that can lay claim to conquering the underground as well as the mainstream, yet
Ali ‘Dubfire’ Shirazinia has managed to dominate both. In fact, he’s setting the
musical agenda for others to follow in his footsteps.
As one-half of the
legendary electronic partnership, Deep Dish, Dubfire has won Grammys, released
hit singles, remixed music’s biggest names and rocked the world’s most respected
venues. Their last album, 2005’s ‘George is On’, catapulted their name into the
mainstream charts and saw the duo crisscross the globe. The album peaked at 3 in
Billboard’s Electronic Album Chart.
Scaling the dizzy heights of dance
music left both Dubfire and his partner, Sharam Tayebi, wanting a creative break
to pursue solo projects and express themselves in new ways, but no one was quite
prepared for what Dubfire did next.
In keeping with his obsessive love of
music -- spanning punk, industrial/new wave, jazz, dub, hip-hop, house and
techno -- Dubfire set out to push the musical boundaries and challenge the dance
scene’s preconceptions by going back to his roots. His release ‘I Feel Speed’
illustrated his new sound with a nod to his influences and saw him step up to
the microphone for vocal duties, setting the bar for what was to be a huge year
in his career.
As tracks such as ‘Roadkill’ and ‘Ribcage’ were released,
an avalanche of accolades emerged, including an invitation to mix the covermount
CD for Mixmag, front covers of Raveline and DJ Magazine, an Essential Mix for
the UK’s Radio 1, and glowing write-ups from Beatportal to Resident Advisor. The
praise was universal.
With a barrage of remixes and productions on
respected labels (including Cocoon, Get Physical, Minus, and Rekkids) earning
him acclaim from his DJ and producer peers, Dubfire shocked and inspired the
industry in one masterstroke!
In 2007, Dubfire took a huge step forward
with the launch of his label, Science + Technology Digital Audio (SCI+TEC).
Initially formed as an exclusively digital label and a vehicle for his own
productions, the label won fans around the world and now releases in all formats
from a range of breaking new artists including Delete, Paul Ritch, Rocha &
Lewinger and The Dolphins -- as well as the man himself.
As 2008 got
underway, Dubfire was heralded as the most forward-thinking artist, featured
twice in the Top 10 of the ‘100 Most Charted Records of 2007’ on Resident
Advisor and winning Best Techno and Best Minimal Artist at the Beatport
With new production partnerships in the works alongside Oliver
Huntemann, forthcoming productions and remixes with notable techno tastemakers
and upcoming SCI+TEC showcases in London, Tokyo and New York, Dubfire is once
again breaking new ground and moving the scene forward -- while keeping a steady
grasp of his ‘punk ethic’!
