Something about Dubfire:With each release, Dubfire’s profile soared higher. Two top 10 tracks in Resident Advisor’s 100 Most Charted Records of 2007, IDJ Magazine’s Player of the Year in 2008, nominations for Beatport’s Best Minimal Artist and Best Techno Artist in 2008 and 2009, covers on countless music magazines, mixes for Mixmag, BBC Radio 1’s Essential Mix, and DJ Magazine – the accolades and achievements came thick and fast.Then in 2009, Dubfire captured the zeitgeist once again with a seminal remix of Danton Eeprom and Radio Slave's 'Grindhouse'. The track, released on Rekids, crossed genres and encapsulated everything that Dubfire stands for today: dark rhythms, superior audio, and technological brilliance. It was the apex of a sound that DJ Magazine called "jet-black, polished chrome techno." Groove and Raveline Magazine named it the Best Remix of the Year.Throughout this remarkable journey, Dubfire’s SCI+TEC Digital Audio record label continued to grow. Originally set up as an outlet for Dubfire’s productions, the label soon established itself as a home for emerging techno talent, putting Dubfire at the head of an electronic music scene at the cutting-edge of technology.A healthy partnership with German producer Oliver Huntemann was also brewing. Beginning in 2008, the duo’s series of club tracks on Huntemann’s Ideal Audio label gave both producers an outlet for peak-time techno. The resulting singles ‘Diablo’, ‘Dios’, and ‘Fuego’ were big club hits, and Dubfire and Huntemann’s continued alliance is likely to see similar such success.Fast forward to 2011, and Dubfire's recent work has seen him co-produce tracks with celebrated British electronic music act Underworld, put out a two-disc mix compilation with Loco Dice for Cocoon, and remix more Plastikman material.And Ali Shirazinia? He is the risk taker, the gambler, the audacious man who conquered electronic music not once, but twice.
