I was listening all day long tracks of dubfire today and it directly came to my mind to write some lines this month , contributing to our special edition category. I spent my afternoon dancing with various good tracks made by dubfire , remixes with much interest made by him as well. Dubfire part of the duo “Deep dish” , founders of deep house style in the 90s.
Ali Shirazinia commonly known as Ali dubfire is originally from Iran , moved in the states afterwards. Together with Sharam (deep dish) is four-time officially nominated with Grammy award. The style of dubfire is obviously different than the deep dish consisting of dark house , techno even sometimes minimal instead of progressive house.Based in Washington D.C area where he spent the most of his youth , Ali has released several good EP’s , remixes , compilations.
Some of my favorite tracks made or remixed by dubfire remain the : transit time by Christian smith (dubfire remix) , possibly the most popular single of dubfire “roadkill” (2007) and several of the collaborations with Oliver Hunterman such as the recently released (2009) “fuego”. As an epilogue of this little article I recommend one of the well known especially to Berlin techno crowds remixes of dubfire , transit enjoy!!
