Grammy Award-winning recording artist Dubfire is renowned for his innovative DJ sets, revolutionary music, and much-lauded SCI+TEC label. Widely recognized as one of electronic music’s most versatile artists, Dubfire initially
brought a pioneering sound to the masses during his days as one-half of the distinguished DJ & production duo Deep Dish, which led to a catalog of timeless dance classics and numerous international awards to their credit. Dubfire has always been a risk taker, and his decision to go solo in 2006 at the height of Deep Dish’s success was a precarious one.
But staying true to his convictions, he created a visionary new style of “techno” that defied genres, crossing over into the hearts, minds and performances of the world’s leading tastemakers. The cadence of his early solo productions came in the form of a relentless string of releases, including “RibCage, “Roadkill, and “Emissions,” collaborations with Underworld and Oliver Huntemann, and the now-classic remix of Radio Slave’s ”Grindhouse” to name just a few. He has shown no signs of slowing the pace, with a host of originals, remixes and collaborations that have subsequently been released to great fanfare. After more than 23 years behind the decks and in the studio, with deep roots in the genesis of electronic music, Dubfire continues to evolve in new ways that have helped shape the industry.
While some artists choose to be merely content with status quo, others constantly look for ways to reinvent themselves and evolve. Falling well into the latter category, techno titan Dubfire will unveil his most ambitious achievement to date at this years Amsterdam Dance Event – dubfire:liveHYBRID.
Premiering worldwide on October 16 at the Roest Warehouse during the annual Amsterdam Dance Event, Dubfire’s debut live show reinvents the concert experience by seamlessly weaving together elements of 2D and 3D animation with live audio and lighting to explore the intersection of science and technology – of man and machine – and their resulting evolution and inevitable fusion.
Says Ali: “I’d always intended for my music to be performed live, supported by the latest advancements in music, stage design, lighting and sound technology. It took me years to build up a body of work that I’m proud to stand behind and 2 to find the team and create the HYBRID show. It’s been an incredibly inspiring ride and I’m tremendously excited to finally bring the show to the fans who continue to support me and my sound”
With support from an eclectic array of hand-picked artists that include legendary dub reggae / industrial / new wave producer Adrian Sherwood, SCI+TEC’s Carlo Lio, Italian dub techno stalwarts Dadub, Modular Pursuits, as well as a very special guest, this event promises to be unlike any other previously seen (or heard!) at ADE.
