EXCLUSIVE: Listen to a rare Deep Dish set ahead of their Coachella Reunion
Before Martin Garrix, The Chainsmokers, Armin van Buuren , and the like, Deep Dish reigned supreme as dance music’s first super stars. Climbing straight to the top of charts with infectious anthems like “Say Hello” and their Stevie Nicks collaboration, “Dreams,” the two-time Grammy-winning pair made of Dubfire and Sharam enamored in their prime with their accessible, yet forward-thinking brand of dance music. Their split in 2006 over creative differences shook the community.
Deep Dish have since come closer in their life paths, with both members entering the underground. While Sharam errs more toward house and Dubfire toward techno and minimal, they still have a certain chemistry that has stood the test of time. In 2014 they did a brief reunion tour together, where they showed off their ability to play polished, extended b2b sets as though they were never apart. They rejoined again in 2018 for a one-off show at Pacha Ibiza in celebration of their debut at the superclub 20 years prior.
It’s this set that we at Dancing Astronaut have the pleasure of showing to the world. Dubfire and Sharam will be reprising their legendary project once more at Coachella on both weekends, and there is no time like the present to get an idea of what’s in store. Sharam’s penchant for infectious melodies and Dubfire’s technical prowess are on full display, with the performance heading down the proverbial rabbit hole into complete darkness by the time it reaches its second half. It’s flawlessly mixed and well-balanced, proving that Deep Dish has still got it.
