Celebrating 15 years at the very top of the industry, esteemed Serbian-Australian producer Dragan Roganovic aka Dirty South, has unveiled his brand new studio album, the aptly titled – XV.
The production marks a stark musical evolution from the two-time Grammy and ARIA nominated DJ, with ‘XV’ embodying a mature and diverse sound that showcases Dirty South’s musical journey over the course of the past decade-and-a-half.
Kicking things off with the beautifully melancholic ‘If It All Stops’ feat ANIMA! (with whom Dirty South later teams up with once again on ‘Next To You’), the track possesses a wistful and emotional charm, and embodies the eclectic sound of the album, with ‘Night Walks’ taking on a more brooding, progressive tech-house feel.
A 10 track release packed with a wind range of sonic arrangements, the likes of ‘Lunar’ adopt a more cosmic, inter-galactic state, whilst ‘Stellar’ displays Dirty South’s penchant for the percussive.
A diverse and dynamic dance mogul capable of producing club-ready anthems or film score sounds, Dirty South has also proved himself to be equally adept at remixing, spinning reworks for the likes of Rihanna, Snoop Dogg, and Miike Snow. A frequent and relentless live performer, Dirty South has dominated the international touring circuit, including headlining gigs at Creamfields, Avalon Hollywood, Tomorrowland, Storm Festival, Big Slap Festival, EDC and many more.
With ‘XV’, Dirty South might be celebrating 15 years of a truly remarkable career in 2018, but for the highly personable producer, 15 is only the beginning, as this year shapes up to be his biggest and brightest so far!
