clubbing: THE D J Q & A DUBFIRE; As one half of Deepdish, Dubfire has won countless awards and enjoyed commercial hit singles. However, the pair decided to concentrate on solo projects, with Dubfire going back to his underground roots. Dubfire last entertained clubbers in Edinburgh three years ago, but he's coming back to headline a special event at the city's Ocean Terminal in two weeks time.Byline: andy everett
Q Are you excited about playing in Edinburgh again?
A Very much so. It's been ages since I've come to Edinburgh. I think the last time was in 2005.
Q You're playing alongside Popof and Kos, what do you know about them?
A They're both great producers and Kos is a good friend.
Q Have you been surprised by the success you've had after Deep Dish?
A It's been a bit of a shock. I'm happy others are feeling my current vibe and the support from the fans has been overwhelming.
Q After quite a bit of commercial success, did you find it difficult being accepted as a more underground artist?
A I was met with a lot of scepticism scep·ti·cism
Variant of skepticism.
a personal disposition toward doubt or incredulity of facts, persons, or institutions. See also 312. PHILOSOPHY. — skeptic, n. , but I think the music I made and continue to make speaks for itself.
Q Did you find it difficult to get used to working on projects by yourself?
A Not really because Sharam and I had always worked separately on our joint projects. The difference now is I had to see the projects through to completion.
Q What has had a definite influence on the current Dubfire sound?
A The reason for this new chapter in my life is having spent time in Ibiza and just checking the vibe and DJs on the island.
Q You won a couple of Beatport awards this year. You must be proud of those?
A I was pleasantly surprised and very humbled. What makes me happy is the support of the fans and the recognition of my achievements by all those great artists out there whose music influences me.

2. UART. + TEC label?
A I'm amazed a·maze
v. a·mazed, a·maz·ing, a·maz·es
1. To affect with great wonder; astonish. See Synonyms at surprise.
2. Obsolete To bewilder; perplex.
v.intr. at how much the label has gained in terms of recognition in such a short period of time. The only negative feedback I'm getting is that they're playing five releases at any one time. But I owe it to the artists to release their music as soon as I can.
Q What is the ethos behind the label?
A I simply release music that moves me and in some ways is different than the other stuff that's out there. I do get a lot of great music that Idon't release, but that is usually because they are copycat tracks or they have already run their course.
Q With so much travelling as a DJ, are you finding it difficult to get working on new productions?
A It's always been difficult but right now it's been especially tough as I've taken on far more gigs this year.
Q Where's your favourite place to play?
A It has always been Tokyo, but this year, playing alongside Sven Vath at Cocoon was a highlight.
