I think it’s safe to say there are two types of people out there in regards to what those people think when they hear the term “Deep Dish” (if we’re talking about music. Everyone else probably just gets hungry.): 1.) people who are extremely excited that Sharam Tayebi (Sharam) and Ali Shirazinia (Dubfire) have reunited after an eight-year hiatus and 2.) people who have no idea who Deep Dish are. Someone like me, who wasn’t too deep into House, Techno, and Tech-House from 1998-2006 when the duo was last active, have had to do some digging into what exactly Deep Dish is. Of course I’m familiar with Sharam and Dubfire separately, but I wasn’t aware that they used to be a supergroup who were known for their epic productions and even more epic DJ sets. The boys decided to get back together and for fans of Deep Dish this is huge news – our own Chicago-based writers were thrilled to catch a secret set in Chicago recently. Moreover, Deep Dish have big plans for Miami next week, with their headlining performance at Ice Palace Studios on Saturday the 29th, featuring sets by Hot Since 82, Carl Craig, and Andhim [BUY TICKETS HERE]. While I respect when two DJs reunite under their former aliases, what shows me they’re really committed to a return is producing music – and Deep Dish have done just that by releasing their latest single “Quincy” which dropped this week on Beatport with the mega Virgin Records. “Quincy” spans over eight minutes and is a progressive Techno/Tech-House track sans lyrics but with a definite punch – it gives me that late night warehouse rave feel. Personally I’m hoping there’s more to come from the duo and I’m particularly excited to hear their Essential Mix which premiers tonight on BBC Radio 1. Tonight’s Essential Mix marks the duo’s fourth and first one since 2005!
Enjoy the track and keep your eyes out for more from Deep Dish!
