The validity of DJ rankings can certainly be debated, and frequently is. Lucky #8 on the oft-lauded DJ Mag poll is Grammy winning Deep Dish. Ali “Dubfire” Shirazinia and Sharam Tayebi are two Americans (born in Iran) from Washington, D.C., who are among the most well-known and respected artists/producers in electronic dance music today. They hit it big with debut “Junk Science” in 1998 and have been producing and DJing consistently since then. In demand as remix specialists, they’ve re-worked tracks from artists like Depeche Mode, Madonna, the Rolling Stones, and the White Stripes. Dubfire and Sharam are regulars in Ibiza and are currently touring the world in support of their latest effort, George Is On. Saturday night clubgoers should plan on battling a crowded queue to hear hot single “Flashdance“.
Deep Dish featuring Dubfire & Sharam will perform Saturday, Dec. 3 from midnight at babyface II, 138 Huai Hai Zhong Lu. Tel: 6375 6667. Tickets are 180 RMB … and probably not available.
