Recently honored with their second Grammy nomination in as many years, and Rolling Stone magazine's #2 pick for the year's "Best Dance/DJ Artist", Deep Dish is poised to continue where they left off following an exciting 2001. Ali 'Dubfire' Shirazinia and Sharam Tayebi, the Washington, DC-based DJ/production duo who make up Deep Dish, first rose to prominence following the 1998 release of their groundbreaking debut album, Junk Science. Since then, the two have spent the bulk of their time trotting around the globe at the request of the world's most famous clubs. Characterized by diverse and unexpected grooves, Deep Dish continues to enjoy mainstream success and underground respect. In addition, DEEP DISH ranked #10 in DJ Magazine's (U.K.) Top 100 DJ's readers poll for 2001–a direct result of constant touring and well-attended residencies from 1015 in San Francisco to Buzz in D.C. to The End in London and beyond. This month, they set off on the second leg of a DJ tour in support of Global Underground, making a special stop on February 9 at the Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City.

Just as active in the studio as the DJ booth, Deep Dish has been called upon to employ their innovative remix style to hits by top artists such as The Rolling Stones, Michael Jackson & Janet Jackson, Dido, The Pet Shop Boys, and N-Sync. So it came as no surprise when Madonna decided to get in on the act by choosing the guys to remix the debut single from her latest album Music (Maverick). Resulting in an infectious dance floor hit, the reworked track won dozens of accolades, including a Grammy award nomination for "Best Remixer of the Year." Madonna was so pleased with their remix, she invited Deep Dish to warm up the crowd for her one-off North America live show at New York's Roseland Ballroom.

In recent months, Deep Dish has continued the fevered pace that has made them two of the hardest working guys in dance music. They provided music for a number of Versace fashion shows in Paris, Rome, and Milan. In the ensuing months, they released Yoshiesque 2, and embarked on a global tour that included Tokyo, Ibiza, Norway, Moscow, and major cities within the US. The appearance in Russia inspired the most-recent installment of the much-lauded Global Underground series, featuring the guys at Moscow's renowned Club XIII. The August 30th edition of Rolling Stone featured the two in their "Hot List Special Issue" as "Hot Duo". Finally, Deep Dish was recently nominated for yet another "Best Remixer of the Year" Grammy for their take on Dido?s "Thank You!"

"The Deep Dish boys continue to steadily push the envelope in the sometimes conservative domain of house, clutching to an open-minded outlook which allows them to try almost anything once while they're behind the turntables or in the studio…"

"Deep Dish have established themselves internationally as future-minded purveyors of soulful, dark and twisted…house."

"Ask any clubbing connoisseur for their top ten mix CDs…[one] would be Deep Dish's."

"…the dish have seen their pioneering work influence the shape of house music in all corners of the world."
