Deep Dish is a duo of DJs and house-music producers consisting of Iranian-American members Ali "Dubfire" Shirazinia and Sharam Tayebi. Based in Washington, D.C., Shirazinia and Tayebi are well known for providing house or dance remixes of tracks of famous stars such as Madonna, Cher and Gabrielle, and for their live DJing sets. They often collaborate with DC artist Richard Morel and produced a dance hit with his song "True (The Faggot is You)". Their remixing abilities first came to attention with their seminal 1995 remix of De'Lacy's "Hideaway," a club classic. Other collaborations include "The Future of the Future (Stay Gold)" with British group Everything But the Girl, which appeared on Deep Dish's artist album Junk Science, which was released in 1998.

History

The duo first met in DC around 1991 when they were accidentally double-booked at a club. Soon after, they formed Deep Dish Records and their work captured the attention of Danny Tenaglia and TRIBAL America Records, which put out the duo's first progressive-house compilation, Penetrate Deeper, in 1995. Over the years the duo has released a number of genre-defining mixed CDs. However, what catapulted Deep Dish to prominence was the release of its debut album, Junk Science, released on the now-defunct UK label deConstruction and a dismal US release through Arista/BMG Records.

Deep Dish have remixed tracks by artists such as Dido ("Thank You" and "Stoned") and the collaboration between Timo Maas and Kelis ("Help Me"). The duo won a Grammy Award for their "Thank You" remix. Deep Dish have also collaborated with Danny Howells to remix the Eminem track "Without Me" (as a bootleg). In July 2005, their second artist album, George Is On, was released. It featured their Hot Dance Music/Club Play chart hit "Flashdance" (which features Anousheh Khalili) (also their biggest UK hit, peaking at number 3), as well as a remake of the classic Fleetwood Mac song "Dreams", for which Stevie Nicks provided new vocals. "Say Hello", the second single released from the album, hit number one on the dance chart in September 2005, becoming their second dance chart-topper (their first being the collaboration with Everything But the Girl in 1998). They also made a successful remix of Justin Timberlake's song "Like I Love You" back in 2003. Although it only charted in the US, it was even more successful than the original version of the song (which only charted at #11 on the Billboard Hot 100) and became their very first #1 in the US, which propelled them to popularity in a country where they had never previously had any chart placing at all: indeed it was only the fourth song (and the fourth chart anywhere that they had had a single in) that had charted anywhere.

In 2005 the film It's All Gone Pete Tong included Raul Rincon's remix of "Flashdance". Deep Dish has appeared as the featured artist on the BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix on several occasions. Their most recent appearances took place in 2008, on the 28th of March, when their set from the Winter Music Conference was broadcast live on the show. Ali "Dubfire" Shirazinia was featured on the Essential Mix in September 2007. Deep Dish is also well-known for their progressive house compilation albums in the famed Global Underground series. The latest Global Underground album, by Dubfire, was released in April 2007.

They also own and run dance music record labels Deep Dish, Yoshitoshi Shinichi, and Yo. In addition, they owned and operated a retail store (also named Yoshitoshi) in the Georgetown area of DC, which sold dance records and clothing. The store closed in 2003, although their labels continue to release music, mostly on the 12 inch single vinyl format.

In August 2009, Sharam was featured on the Essential Mix and his mix was subsequently voted the best of 2009.[2]
