Iranian home and techno DJ and producer Dubfire bought his begin when he was a teen enjoying home events and faculty dances within the late ’80s. In an interview he tells Brett Callwood about evolving from enjoying native reveals within the Washington, DC space to world reveals within the mid-’90s: “It was not uncommon for DJs in that period of time to regularly play open to close sets,” he says. “So, honing your DJ skills required you to be adept at programming sets that slowly evolve throughout the night. And that usually means opening with a bit of ambient or deeper house and gradually increasing the BPM and energy level/genres of the music. So, my sound today is still informed by that blueprint. But the typically shorter sets obviously depend on the sound of a particular stage, venue or night.”
Throughout the dialogue, Dubfire discusses his newest launch: “There is a sort of loose space travel theme permeating the sound—and song titles—of the album. ‘Bottom Dweller’ is the third single and is filled with that unrelenting tension and wonder we all have about space.” ♦
