Hailing from the capitol city of Washington, DC, the duo of Dubfire and Sharam, better known as Deep Dish, have developed into the most in demand US-bred DJ/Producers on the global music scene. The duo’s storied production and remix discography includes acclaimed work for major artists such as The Rolling Stones, Madonna, Justin Timberlake P. Diddy & Dido, and has netted them a Grammy Award and two Grammy Nominations. Deep Dish are now primed and ready to unleash their highly anticipated artist album, George is On. George is On finds the duo exploring a hybrid sound that mixes their signature lusty, sublime club sounds with a healthy dose of rock guitars and vocals. Standout songs include 'Flashdance,' which features an infectious guitar riff inspired by the classic 80’s movie score as well as the sultry vocals of newly discovered vocalist Anousheh. This song was hands down the biggest international dancefloor hit of ’04-’05: it peaked at #3 on the UK charts and became iTunes’ #1 downloaded electronic song for 2004. 'Say Hello,' also featuring the vocals of Anousheh, is currently conquering the U.S. dance radio charts with it's uplifting vibe. The legendary Stevie Nicks joins the duo on the cover of Fleetwood Mac’s classic 'Dreams,' providing a generation-crossing album highlight. And finally, in one of the first-ever legal mash-up's, Dire Straits’ 'Money For Nothing' is crossed with 'Flashdance"' to create the bombastic 'Flashing for Money,' the album’s bonus track. With George is On, Deep Dish have created a unique and credible piece of music- it's rock, it's dance, it's's Deep Dish.

Album Notes and Credits

Muze PNote Seven years after their last album of original productions and eight long months after the leadoff single "Flashdance" stormed the clubs, Deep Dish returned with George Is On. A slicker, more extroverted effort than their 1998 effort Junk Science, George Is On finds that album's main vocalist/lyricist Richard Morel back with the duo. The guitar-heavy "Sacramento" is one of the best cuts yet to come from the relationship, with the more laid-back and foggy "Everybody's Wearing My Head" running a close second. Besides Morel, plenty of hypnotic, nocturnal instrumentals recall the duo's well-respected debut, but the flippant, cheeky "Flashdance" and a cover of Fleetwood Mac's "Dreams" with Stevie Nicks guesting explore the worlds of anthems and arguably camp, something that's been slowly developed on the multiple Deep Dish mix albums that have appeared since their proper debut. The mash-up of "Flashdance" and Dire Straits' "Money for Nothing" that closes the track list is only a bit clever and entirely anti-climatic if the listener considers it part of the album instead of a throwaway bonus. Otherwise, George Is On may be a shade too comfortable for anyone thinking Deep Dish should always sound like the future, but the album is as well crafted as Junk Science and a lot more fun. ~ David Jeffries
