Dubfire on New Marquee NYC, Shift in Nightlife

Ali Shirazinia, better known as tech-house producer Dubfire, had a specific reason for accepting an invitation to play at the grand opening of the newly remodeled Marquee night club in NYC this past weekend.

“New York nightlife hasn’t been quite what it used to be the last couple of years,” Ali told VIBE while from the megaclub's green room moments before taking the decks of the revamped nightlife staple. “I wanted to do what I can, to use this platform, because a guy like me doesn’t typically play the Marquee [scene] … so I wanted to help out anywhere I can to promote credible underground DJs.”

Dubfire may not usually play swank venues like Marquee, but he’s far from unknown in the EDM world. The Iranian artist based out of Barcelona capitalized on opportunities to play frequent gigs in Europe this past summer, most notably in Ibiza where he was a guest for Richie Hawtin’s infamous ENTER party. Before spinning at the Marquee opening, he had just finished throwing a party for his own acclaimed label, SCI-TEC, at the BPM Festival in Playa Del Carmen, Mexico one week prior.

Dubfire cited his affinity for local NYC DJs Sleepy and Boo - both opening with a supporting tech-house set to prep the packed house for Dubfire’s unique underground sound - as a big reason for him coming out to support the new venture.
