Ali ‘Dubfire’ Shirazinia is one half of the Grammy winning DJ/production duo Deep Dish. Along with his partner, Sharam Tayebi, the two DC-based friends have combined to form one of the most celebrated DJ duos in Dance Music.
Performing solo under the moniker “Deep Dish Presents Dubfire,” Ali unleashes the same diverse and unexpected grooves that have come to characterize Deep Dish’s energetic and legendary sets behind the turntables.
Deep Dish first rose to prominence following the 1998 release of their groundbreaking debut album, Junk Science. Since then, the two have spent their time trotting around the globe at the request of the world’s top clubs and creating celebrated remixes for some of the world’s top artists, such as Madonna, Dido, The Rolling Stones, and Brother Brown. It was there take on Dido’s “Thank You” that landed the two their first Grammy win in 2002.
Recently, Deep Dish ranked #10 in DJ Magazine’s (U.K.) Top 100 DJ’s readers poll for 2001--a direct result of constant touring and well-attended residencies from 1015 in San Francisco to Buzz in D.C. to The End in London and beyond.
