Grammy Award winner and global sensation Dubfire returns to KL this 14 September 2023 at Kyō KL. From pioneering commercial success as Deep Dish, to equal global acclaim within the underground scene, Dubfire is an artist whose drive, talent and intuition have placed him in the top ranks of electronic music for 3 decades.
Born in Iran and raised in the US from the age of seven, Ali ‘Dubfire’ Shirazinia first developed his skills playing in bands and local clubs in Washington, D.C.. He was introduced to Sharam Tayebi through a childhood friend in 1990, and soon after they formed Deep Dish; a production and DJ duo that conquered the world of electronic music, picking up a prestigious Grammy (2001) in the process, helping to pave the way for the current electronic music boom. Y
et at the height of their success, both opted to take a step back and pursue solo careers, with the Dubfire alias allowing Ali to express his deep love for underground house and techno.
Dubfire’s remarkable life story has been told in the captivating documentary Above Ground Level (2017), which chronicles his career trajectory as a youngster from the 1979 revolution in Iran, to becoming one of dance music’s biggest stars. Revealing the human story of an immigrant in pursuit of the American dream, the film steers clear of past electronic music cliches and gives an in-depth look at the hard work and sacrifice needed to become a success within the electronic music scene.
