George Is On





Deep Dish have been leaders in the international dance music scene for quite some time. The electonica duo have won a Grammy, been nominated two more times, and have become renowned for their brilliant remixes. In fact, Deep Dish has remixed their share of cool rock artists, ranging from Depeche Mode to Beth Orton. Ali 'Dubfire' Shirazinia and Sharam Tayebi are at the top of their game with the new full-length George Is On. The lead single, "Flashdance", marked their first original new song in six years, and it was well worth the wait. It takes balls to incorporate the Flashdance soundtrack classic "He's A Dream" into a rocking new tune, but Deep Dish have done just that. Don't worry my little indie rock friends, as this album is filled with plenty of guitars to keep you satisfied. The album kicks off with "No Stopping For Nicotine", which could have easily been inspired by a Love And Rockets track. It is their ability to mix musical genres with such ease that makes George Is On an interesting listen. The Chemical Brothers are one of the only other dance artists to successfully blur the line between dance and rock. To push Deep Dish even further into the rock world, they included a cover of Fleetwood Mac's "Dreams", complete with new vocals from Stevie Nicks. Hipsters should make sure to check out "Say Hello", with breathy female vocals and an addictive beat that will easily win over fans of pop flavor of the week Annie. Diehard fans that have supported Deep Dish from day one have not been forgotten, with the thumping "Sexy III" and "Dub Shepherd" that will send any dance floor into a frenzy. While so many other dance artists have failed in creating an album of their own material, Deep Dish have given us a solid record filled with addictive beats that will appeal to quite a broad audience. Dance music is far from over. In fact, with more albums like this, it could be just the beginning.
