Flashdance - A Deep Dish MegaMix

Nope, it's not that famous Chicago pizza, but otherwise an equally famous duo of DJ and house music producers, Ali "Dubfire" Shirazinia and Sharam Tayebi, collectively known as "Deep Dish."
Like other high-profile DJs, the two have landed plenty of high-profile DJ gigs and remix projects. The partners have won two DanceStar Awards, as well as a Grammy for Best Remixed Recording for Dido's "Thank You" (which I've included in this compilation). They've done remixes for artists like Madonna, the Rolling Stones, Dido, Beth Orton, Depeche Mode, Dire Straits and more. Their album, Junk Science also featured Everything But The Girl's Tracey Thorn.

Today's mix is my personal tribute to one of my faves in the house/progressive music scene. It comprises their best remixes and originals as compiled by yours truly. Expect the recognizable Deep Dish vibe with crunchy guitars and funky house beats all in the mix.
