They say time flies when you’re having fun, and if you ask Dubfirewhether the last ten years of his career feels that long, it’s clearthat he’s been having too much of a ball to notice. It’s only fitting,though, to celebrate this milestone with a comprehensive retrospectiveof his work: A Decade Of Dubfire.Cast your mind back to 2007. Electro house was already beginningto implode in on itself, crushed by the weight of excess andformulas. Hard techno had fallen out favour after years of relentlessintensity. Straight up house was sounding somewhat stale.‘Minimal’ was increasingly the word on everyone’s lips, and in thewave of forward-thinking, boundary-pushing minimal technoproducers came the birth of Dubfire’s solo career. Hugelysuccessful as one half of Deep Dish - undisputedly one of thegreatest house acts of all time - the man otherwise known as AliShirazinia was always fascinated by techno, but it was this newstripped-back approach that sucked him into its path.His knack for combining a sense of minimalism and succinctnesswith a tough edge and sonic theatrics stood him out from thecrowd and gave his tracks serious big room appeal, his productionsinstantly becoming firm favourites of every A-list DJ worththeir salt. Over the years he increasingly fused his love for ‘80ssynth pop and electro into his sounds, continuing his lineage ofintensely electronic music with raw emotion at its heart. Thiscompilation spans the breadth of his sounds, and is a timelyreminder of just how many intense dancefloor moments he hassoundtracked.
