Dubfire:Live Hybrid


From global success in the commercial domain to equal accomplishments within the underground scene, Dubfire (aka Ali Shirazinia) is an artist whose drive, talent and intuition have placed him within the top tier of electronic music artists in the world. He maintains this position within the industry with an unrelenting work ethic and a focused determination to innovate, evolve, and entertain.Whether it’s his involvement with Deep Dish, his solo performances at an extensive list of the world’s most influential clubs and festivals, running his label SCI+TEC,or simply his exploration of audio and visual technology, Dubfire is in a class of his own and is resolute in his forward-thinking ethos.Born in Iran and raised in theU.S.from the age of seven,Dubfire first developed his skills playing at local clubs in Washington, D.C. He was introduced to Sharam Tayebi through a childhood friend and they formed “Deep Dish – a production and DJ duo that conquered the world of electronic music, picking up a Grammy (and previous nominations) in the process in addition to a vast array of other awards and accolades. At the height of their success both men opted to take a step back and pursue solo careers, with the Dubfire alias allowing him to express his deep love for underground house and techno. Despite skepticism from certain quarters within the industry, Dubfire quickly integrated himself into the minimalistic techno scene and produced several key releases that cemented him as a true visionary and a force to be reckoned with in underground music. From ‘Ribcage’, ‘Emissions’ and ‘Roadkill’, to his work with Oliver Huntemann and his remix of ‘Spastik’ by Plastikman, Dubfire’s creations perfectly display his musical dexterity and depth of aural knowledge.His ascent was swift and assured,taking him to the upper echelons of the techno sphere. A fascination with technology and its implementation within both the studio and on stage put Dubfire in a unique position. As someone who performs with an array of equipment, he has advanced the role of the DJ from someone who mixes records, to an individual who edits and creates new music on the fly. This ad-lib style of performance leads to a constantly exhilarating, unpredictable show and demonstrates his penchant for technology. Now splitting his time between Los Angeles, Washington DC and Barcelona, Dubfire travels on a regular basis, spreading his sound from Brazil to Japan, and everywhere in between. From Time Warp in New York to Womb in Tokyo to DC10 in Ibiza – Dubfire has performed at practically every club, festival, and event worldwide. Never satisfied with the status quo, Dubfire spent two years crafting a live show and his HYBRIDlive concept has been wowing audiences since its soft launch debut at the Amsterdam Dance Event in 2014. Described by Thump as, “unlike anything we had previously seen or heard before.”
