“Whatever it is you do, you have to try to be as honest with yourself and with your art as possible. And if you can manage that, the rest will fall into place quite nicely.“
Rounding off our series of incredible interviews on the Finish More Music Podcast over the last four weeks is the one and only Dubfire!
After achieving global commercial success as one half of Grammy Award-winning duo Deep Dish, Ali Shirazinia’s move to the underground led to his phenomenal reinvention as Dubfire, and is now placed within the very top tier of electronic music’s underground.
Following the epic production masterclass that Ali graced our FMM members with last month, we’re reunited once again to discuss finding creative inspiration, being honest with yourself as an artist, plus some super interesting perspectives on what the future might hold for dance music in the ‘new normal’.
We also dive head first into the struggles that all producers face (which transcend ability and success), making peace with remixes that just don’t go your way, and the importance of not comparing yourself to others.
The conversation really could have gone on for HOURS, packed full of ideas that all creatives can resonate with.
This is one for the history books, strap in and prepare to be inspired – we go DEEP!
- Have a clear vision for what you want to achieve, and work towards it.
- Put yourself in situations where creative ideas can be tapped into.
- “Whatever it is you do, you have to try to be as honest with yourself and with your art as possible.”
- Be patient and don’t force anything.
- “At the end of the day, whatever it is you do, you have to try to be as honest with yourself and with your art as possible. And if you can manage that, the rest will fall into place quite nicely.”
- “Don’t be influenced by what you see and how you see people express themselves on social media, just focus on your art…if it’s meant to be it’ll happen.”
