Echo Beach, one of my favourite summer venues to enjoy music whether it be electronic or alternative. Shoes off and raving in the sand is what summer is really about. This year if there is one thing you must do at Digital Dreams, it is to tear yourself away form the Dreams Stage (the stage that is now the biggest erected in Canada) and make your way to the heaven that is Echo Beach. Along the beautiful waterfront and in the sand you can enjoy the sounds of techno to deep house with every stunning sub-genre in between. The echo beach line up reads like a whose-who of legends of the electronic music, with some of the most influential DJs and producers gracing the stage. This year we have the likes of Victor Caldrone, Claude Von Stroke, Danny Tengalia and even the techno queen Nicole Moudaber. Most notably we see the reunion of Deep Dish the powerful techno duo comprised of Dubfire and fellow Digital Dreams artist Sharam.
Take a minute and refresh your minds with the legendary Deep Dish!

For lovers of deep house, the news of Deep Dish reuniting in 2014 was the best news they could hear. For Deep Dish fans residing in proximity of Digital Dreams, hearing that they would be headlining the first night of Digital Dreams was even better news. The duo, comprised of Dubfire and Sharam, first joined powers in '92 before disbanding in 2006. Their catalogue is impressive and includes a wide array of remixes, collaboration projects and original productions. It was their debut album 'Junk Science' which catapolted Deep Dish into popularity - effortlessly assisting in transporting the underground to a bourgeoning mainstream community. Their original productions were numerous however it was their countless remix projects which gained the most attention. Following the success of Junk Science the offers began pouring in from famous artists to have their records receive the 'Deep Dish' touch, two of such projects landing both Grammy wins and nominations for "Remix of the Year."
The pair became regarded as the superstars of their time and toured tirelessly across the globe bring the sounds of deep house to the masses. In 2006 Deep Dish disbanded, with Dubfire and Sharam off to pursue equally successful solo careers. On Saturday March 22nd, the duo reunited for the first time since 2008 to record a coveted mix for BBC - the legendary Essential Mix. The announcement of the Essential Mix put Deep Dish fans at ease, and signalled to the masses that they were back. On Saturday June 28th experience history in the making when Deep Dish brings opening night of Digital Dreams to a close as they headline the stage at Echo Beach.
