Dubfire, half of the legendary progressive house superduo, Deep Dish, is in town for his last Chicago visit of the year. Dubfire’s approach to techno and tech-house ignites many a dance floor, fueled by driving grooves and relentless beats, subtly augmented by synths, vocal samples and infectious minimal techno elements. Dubfire’s Sci+Tec imprint boasts club-movers such as Paul Ritch and Oliver Huntemann, both of whom have partnered with Dubfire’s dark and sultry sound. The accolades continue to roll in for this DJ veteran, and this holiday weekend he joins Richie Hawtin in a coordinated attempt to destroy the Spy Bar massive. (John Alex Colón)
