DJ TechTools - Behind the booth with Dubfire: An intuitive guide to live House/Techno 11m 48s

About this lesson

DJ Dubfire talks us through the different philosophies of DJing, building with loops and melodies, launching clips, key locking, rattlesnake tape delay technique, looping for variation and what he has learnt from failing.

Ali Shirazinia (Persian: علی شیرازی‌نیا‎), commonly known by his stage name Dubfire, is an Iranian American House and Techno DJ and producer.[1][2] Prior to his solo career, Dubfire made up half of the four times nominated and Grammy Award-winning duo, Deep Dish.[3][4][5] , a DJ and production duo. Dubfire's style is noticeably different from that of Deep Dish, consisting of techno rather than progressive house.[6] Growing up in the Washington, DC area, Dubfire spent much of his youth playing the guitar in school bands and listening to heavy doses of classic hip hop, jazz/rare groove, dub, new wave and industrial and was also influenced by the local punk scene and the music of Washington DC-based bands including Fugazi and Minor Threat.
