Dubfire (real name Ali Shirazinia) was visiting the studios of Bridge_48, in Barcelona, where he mentored some students who participated in his music production course. The winner of the course is currently enjoying a year of mentoring with the legendary American DJ. Between those mentoring sessions, we managed to get a few minutes with Dubfire in one of the studios of this new city’s electronic music hub. We asked him about his best gigs to date, his favourite artists, his dreams and aspirations, his longest set ever… and his favourite DJ to play b2b with.
Dubfire also gave us an hour of musical selection, in which the artist with Iranian roots shyly moves away from the minimal techno that has made him a legend to approach a more melodic and intimate techno proposal. Powerful bass lines, pronounced ascents and loud drops are still protagonists.
With Dubfire, we start a 2020 year in which many of the main artists of the house and techno scenes will pass through the cameras, the booths and the studios of Xceed.
