Product Description

Product Description

The first new studio album from Deep Dish since 1998's release of Junk Science, George Is On features 14 new studio tracks including the amazing dancefloor filler "Flashdance". "Say Hello" is set to follow in its footsteps. The album also features an interpretation of "Dreams", which has been rerecorded with Stevie Nicks herself. There are also two tracks with long time collaborator Richard Morel, and further appearances from Anousheh Khalili - the vocalist on "Say Hello" and "Flashdance".

BBC Review

2005 could well be Deep Dish's most successful year yet. The Grammy Award winners belatedly following Junk Science, their acclaimed 1998 debut, with a collection of songs that owe much to dance music's current obsession with rocky guitar riffs. Although, to be fair, Ali 'Dubfire' Shirazinia and Sharam Tayebi, the uncompromising Iranian duo, are pretty much responsible for that trend following their breakout pop smash "Flashdance".

"Say Hello", with vocalist Anousheh Khalili's ethereal delivery is set against a backdrop of classical piano chords has further fuelled their chart statue, while the forthcoming re-issue of their top 10 production of De'Lacy's "Hide Away" will further stoke their coffers.

Despite initially being pigeonholed as deep-house producers, the Washington-based duo have never allowed their music to be dictated by fads or trends; their sound now encompassing a multitude of genres similarly reflecting their varied multi-faceted tastes.

From the rocky "Sacramento" with Richard Morel, via the electro fuelled "Everybody's Wearing My Head" to the twisted house of "Dub Shepherd" complete with the Celeda-esque charms of Janis Leahy. There's even folksy beats ("Awake Enough"), melancholic interstellar ambience ("In Love With A Friend"), and cinematic soundscapes ("Sergio's Theme").

Elsewhere a timely guest appearance from Stevie Nicks on a stirring cover of "Dreams" - this album's Tracey Thorn and "Future Of The Future (Stay Gold)" - will appeal to Radio 2 listeners as much as ardent Ibiza clubbers.

While most of Dubfire and Sharam's productions have an epic, grandiose feeling, the duo's knack for tight programming and genre blending has carried them above many of their dance-chart compatriots. As with their debut, Deep Dish have made and succeeded in their conscious effort to move forward musically with a consistent album that's anything but a collection of club tunes. --Jack Smith

I approached this album with an open mind, as I've been a follower of all things Deep Dish since I was introduced to them in the Renaissance arena at Ministry of Sound at Knebworth. They were immense that night, and my purchase of Yoshiesque 1 & 2 that followed was nothing less than a life-shaping experience, influencing the direction my musical tastes take even now. I've also been pleased with the Global Underground mixes. I bought Junk Science, their first full album, and I have to say that I was disappointed. Apart from 'Mohammed Is Jesus' and 'The Future of the Future', both of which I had already heard, loved and played ad infinitum, the album was for want of a better word wishy-washy.
...and that brings me to the tracks on this album. The first time I heard 'Flashdance' was (unashamedly) when I downloaded a low quality promo on a p2p network. Shortly afterwards I went to see Deep Dish in the Radio 1 Essential Mix arena at Creamfields. I have to say that their mixing was lazy, their track selection was sloppy, but their dedication to the big beats and funk-laiden melodies didn't falter. In addition to the original version of their as yet unreleased Flashdance, they played one of the David Guetta mixes. This was also the day I was introduced to 'Say Hello'. Sadly, the versions they played that day did not make it onto this album.
That's right. The good versions that they actually played in clubs were watered down. By that I don't mean to suggest that they were make more melodic or vocal. Nope. Pretty much the same, but with the magic touch removed.

What is it now? 6 ... 7 years since Junk Science? An album slammed into an eagerly awaiting public with the Dish riding high on some really choice remixes, exposing a bland house scene to a form of electronica that hadn't been heard before. I dare any of you to offhandly dismiss the first time you heard the organ of Hideaway float in. It was awe inspiring. Junk Science was exactly what everyone was clammering for, a full set of official Dish tracks. Future Of The Future became a classic, and I found myself loving Sushi and Stranded plus the multitude of ace Dish remixes that followed later. Dish quickly stuck gold again with Yoshiesque and began kicking out some utterly classic remixes, pushing forward the Progressive sound. It was at this time that I was just wishing for a new Dish album to surface, taking advantage of their new found dark and rough style. Yet no album surfaced.
Time passed, the remix quality began to get a wee bit diluted and eventually the anti-climatic Lets Get Ill appeared. Hints of producution work in the pipeline but still no action. This brings us up to now, Flashdance has had its recent chart assualt and the Dish name is now in full public view. Finally the follow up to Junk Science has arrived. So whats it like? Well its alright I suppose. I found Flashdance didn't live up to the expectation of what you'd want from a Dish track. From reading an interview when De'lacy hit years back, they said that their beat programming was always so important to them, just check the grinding beats of said Hideaway or the pots and pans banging of Stay Gold for confirmation of this. You can see where I'm coming from when I say that Flashdance sounded a bit flat for them. It comes across more like the Yoshitohsi's own 6400 Crew's Dub Me Some Tin Fresh, except less interesting.

Sharam and Dubfire make some excellent tracks, combing thrash guitars, Progressivey-Duby beats, and varying melodies and vocals, such features just aren't present in a lot of today's dance music and makes this an interesting and varied ride. Particular highlights are the Trance-like "Say Hello" the huge heavy amplified guitars of "Sacramento" and the chilled-out "Dreams"

I read the other reviews and thought I was in for another deep dish classic. Alias not. This album starts badly and goes down hill. It's not just a bad album with a few excellent tunes on it; more that it's a bad album with some really terrible songs on it. If you liked Yoshiesque, then do not buy this - it's a poor mix of experimental Aphex Twin and a flat Depeche Mode.
