Ali e Sharam são de origem iraniana, mas vivem em Washington (EUA), local onde se conheceram em 1991 (época em que ambos já discotecavam). Os dois começaram a trabalhar juntos e em 1992 se aprofundaram nas produções, lançando então um selo próprio que ganhou o nome de "Deep Dish". Em pouco tempo a dupla "adotou" o nome que era do selo, e as produções começaram a fazer sucesso nas pistas. Em 1998 foi lançado o primeiro álbum só com produções próprias dos dois, "Junk Science".
De lá para cá, o Deep Dish ganhou muita visibilidade e permaneceu em intensa atividade: compilações como a série "Yoshiesque" e o "Global Underground - Toronto" se tornaram grandes sucessos e o duo virou habitué não só do polêmico "Top 10" da DJ Mag, como dos outros rankings do gênero. Nas produções, o forte da dupla eram as remixagens, a ponto de em 2002 ganhar o Grammy de "Melhor Remix" por "Thank You", de Dido.
Deep Dish is a duo of DJ and house music producers consisting of Iranian-American members Ali "Dubfire" Shirazinia and Sharam Tayebi. Based in Washington, DC they 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 mix of De'Lacy "Hideaway", a club classic in 1995. Earlier 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.
Deep Dish rose to prominence following the 1998 release of their debut album, Junk Science. The duo first met in DC and over the years have released a number of genre-defining mixed CDs.
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), 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).
Deep Dish have appeared as the featured artist on the BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix on several occasions. Their most recent appearances took place in 2006, on the 29th of July, when their set from Global Gathering 2006 was broadcast live on the show. Their June 2005 Essential Mix was one of the nominees for 2005 Essential Mix of the Year. 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 of 2007.
They also own and run dance music record labels Deep Dish, Yoshitoshi, and Yo, among others with the aid of their first label manager Chuck Roder. In addition, they owned and operated a retail store (also named Yoshitoshi) in the Georgetown area of D.C., 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.
