they say time flies when youãre having fun, and if you ask dubfire whether the last ten years of his career feels that long, itãs clear that heãs been having too much of a ball to notice. itãs only fitting, though, to celebrate this milestone with a comprehensive retrospective of his work: a decade of dubfire.
celebrating three decades of kms-flavored techno, kms30 demonstrates both the genres evolution and enduring relevance in today’s musical landscape. comprising three cuts from kevin saunderson & kink, dubfire and marc houle, this array of club-stomping sounds paves the way for more phenomenal years to come.
a return to the source: ribcage is where it all began for the dubfire project. after years of exploring, subverting and setting brave new benchmarks in the house world, this marked the start of ali shirazinia setting out to set the same creative benchmarks in techno. restrained, drawn-out but beastly when it wanted to be, the original was a serious statement of intent. even at the time you got a sense it was going to be a historic tune. loco dice especially felt that when he signed it to desolat 10 years ago. to celebrate this time-flying milestone, dubfireÆs recruited two of the most respected names possible for remix duties. first up, the unstoppable, unavoidable, unquenchable dense & pika who keep within the dramatic rising template but with a whole new set of instruments and texturesà and a percussion palette that absolutely sizzles when the whole groove kicks in mid-way. phenomenal. hot on their heels comes a unique remix invitation to on-u legend and one of the ukÆs most decorated and treasured studio controllers adrian sherwood. turning in a serious techno re-cut that pays tribute to every element and takes over 12 minutes to make sure they each shine amid the head-twisting pools of tripped-out decay, itÆs clear his time with pinch has had a profound effect. two incredibly well considered and detailed remixes that remind you what remixes should beà brave new chapters of a story we all love being told. these will sound great when the 20th anniversary remixes are commissioned in 2027.
following the success of ‘ride’ with miss kittin, eminent sci+tec founder dubfire returns with another chaos-conjuring techno composition. previously the sole-preserve of his epic sense-blurring hybrid show, dubfire is finally unleashing ‘dust devil’… his first solo release in several years, ‘dust devil’ is all about precision momentum. a move that dubfire’s made his signature, you can physically feel movement and destination throughout. especially as we reach the short breakdown where the riff revolves faster and higher, providing space for the echoed stabs that whirl and twist around you intensely. as the drums re-ignite, the riff is suddenly converted into groove energy as the jack-minded persistence brings the elements back together with pure focus. this is what ali has to say… “this was an instrumental i had done that i wasn’t quite sure what to do with. it wasn’t strong enough for a lead single and it always felt as though there was something missing, perhaps a spoken or sung vocal. so i sort of put it out of my mind until it was time to compile the music for the hybrid show back in the summer of 2013. once i had the backbone of the set list, along with the visual look, there seemed to be a more defined mood and look. and when i happened upon this track again it seemed to have been tailor-made for this show. it was also nice to insert something no one had heard before to break things up a bit.

dubfire and miss kittin have scored another big hit in the form of their second collaboration ride, the follow-up to the much-loved anthem exit. now, many destroyed dancefloors later and they’re unleashing a big pack of remixes to sit alongside their two original versions. solomun may best known for big melodies and hooks, but his remix boldly displays his affinity for heads down techno. a beast of a track, it centers around ticking percussion and pulsating synth delays with a throbbing low end. minimal in approach, maximal in aesthetic, it’s a no-nonsense groove. matthew dear dons his audion guise to remind us how instrumental he was in formulating that oddball techno sound a decade ago, making good use of the vocals in the heady breakdowns and matching them with unsettlingly wavering synth sirens and an almost tribal bass stomp. it’s full of atmospheric touches and pulls off a big room feel without resorting to cliches. depeche mode, erasure and yazoo legend vince clarke is a personal hero of dubfire’s, making his appearance on this package all the more of a special, rare treat. his chunky house groove is decked out with rolling congas, electro arpeggios and a yearning, bluesy guitar lick. french star djedjotronic has himself remixed depeche mode, and his version rounds off the package with throbbing low end, harrowing synths, techy percussion and brooding reese bass swells. with four very different mixes to choose from, this is an immense package that is set to cause havoc on dancefloors worldwide for some time to come.
senso sounds drop a major release from techno heavyweight dubfire and label boss oliver huntemann. reuniting the partnership that has seen a string of seminal releases over the years in the form of their ‘elements’ series, ‘humano’ is the 2nd part of a continuation of this series - more weapons of grade dance-floor material from the high profile duo. later on this year their partnership will be summarized in their ‘restrospectivo’ album. former deep dish man dubfire’s uncanny knowledge of how to create epic dance-floor moments is in full effect, combined with huntemann’s precision tool production techniques on the original version of the title track. the result is a super tough, tight and incalculably driving slice of techno goodness that will ignite floors worldwide. the rest of the ep manages to maintain the pressure - with a set of sick remixes from victor ruiz, hatzler and shaded. ruiz, the brazilian techno pioneer adds another level of fire to the original, tweaking and refining the track into a damager that pushes everything to 11 and hits home with every play. hatzler, the hamburg based german dj/producer chooses a different direction - emphasizing more of the space in the original. rinsing the tension to the next level, look out for the epic middle section break down. the whole package is primed to destroy clubs far and wide - techno at its most effective. shaded’s summer skin remix also delivers a tightly wound interpretation, with a bubbling bass line and nervous, excited groove providing the fuel for an extended dancefloor excursion.
keys in the ignition, no turning back: dubfire and miss kitten are about to take us on another late night road trip. and this time there are two very special ways to ride, plotting new routes from where they last dropped us off in 2014 with exit, and presented in miss kittins own artwork, the two long term friends and musical kindred spirits cover a side each with two version journeys youll never forget. kittin jumps straight on the autobahn in a tank-shaped techno hummer. thumping the tarmac down with every gas-guzzling kickdrum, lights blur and trace and the mission gathers momentum as we cruise almost majestically into a brighter unknown. dubfire brings us back home via the trusty widescreen house plains. roads running parallel with the grand, emotional highways he once took as deep dish, the vanishing point is far on the horizon where a vast sky of twinkling stars opens up with a feeling you could ride for days on end. unhurried, restrained and timelessly crisp and futuristic: trips like this dont come about very often the keys are in the ignition, care to take a ride?

the true techno dream team of dubfire & oliver huntemann revisit their elements project from a few years ago with a new series of killer remixes, ahead of a retrospective album coming later in the year. terra - originally released in 2011, did all sorts of damage to dance-floors across the globe. now, its all set to do it again thanks to this joseph capriati remix. the italian techno headliner has grown into a major force on the scene in recent years, and here delivers a signature slice of muscular, driving techno - taut, dramatic and devastating. paired with a remix of the now seminal feugo julien jeweils remix also hits the spot - the track received a 2016 overhaul with some of jeweils signature flair. the frenchman has been a constant figure on the top of various charts and line ups for some time, and its easy to see why - fuego is stripped back machine funk primed for big systems and even bigger moments.
today we once again celebrate the coming together of two of technos most legendary and respected figures for the next installment of their much lauded elements series - oliver huntemann & dubfire. as the series name alludes, aire is a track that harnesses elements from the previous brace of tracks and brings them together whilst adding a fresh touch of flair. irelands matador takes on the remix task, delivering two contrasting new versions. his beautifully deep dub mix is an understated, smooth and wondrous excursion while his main mix throws down its earth-moving kick drum throughout as he allows the original atmospherics and fx to playfully pierce the production.
it s been a busy 2014 so far for label head dubfire. whilst nothing unusual for the persian-born producer, with the revival of deep dish (alongside sharam), the release of their new single quincy, the continuation of the sci+tec radio show, the release of his much vaunted remix of come featuring asia argento and his relentless global touring schedule, it would be a surprise to find even a slither of studio time for original dubfire productions.

step forward dubfire (aka ali shirazinia from grammy winning dj and production duo deep dish) whos already hit top form this summer with some tasty releases on desolat, funkwelle.net and whose thumping >emissions< features on the minus compilation >expansion contraction<. the beauty of this rework is that it doesnt stray far from the original vibe. dubfire pays the track the full respect it deserves, adding contemporary beats, bass and hat patterns, subliminal efx and tweaks that perfectly compliment the eq sweeps and machine gun snare rolls of the original. panikattack (originally released on plus 8 in 1996 as the b side to sickness) gets a more radical overhaul with guido schneider turning in a typically pragmatic version. by excavating and enhancing the gritty funk that lies buried under the feverish textures of the original, he discovers a totally new dimension. combining the plastik elements with his own trademark swing and razor sharp percussion programming, schneider coaxes the track out of the shadows for some serious peak time action as the bassline bounds forward relentlessly occasionally enveloped by stuttering delays, to negotiate its way through the dubbed out breakdown and on to the end
