Albums, Progressive House, Review | Dirty South – Speed Of Life (Album Review)

Posted by on March 6, 2013


Serbian born, Australian native Dragan Roganovic, better known to the world for the past decade as Dirty South has finally released his debut artist album “Speed Of Life” after countless singles, EPs, collaborations and remixes. The album is where his sound is at this present moment, but it is also a culmination of everything he has done to this point and how he has evolved and grown as an artist. There is no doubt that if he had written this 2 or 5 years ago, the album would have sounded totally different, and we are grateful that he took the time to wait and mature to venture into the difficult, arduous, yet rewarding process of creating an album. The 45 minutes containing “Speed Of Life” have no wasted second, every bit has a purpose and there is no song that seems to be a filler. This carefully crafted album may leave you wishing there was more at the end, but isn’t that a good thing, or at least a whole lot better then you wishing there was less.

Progressive House | Alesso & Dirty South – City Of Dreams

Posted by on August 27, 2012

This track is practically flawless. The chemistry between the two of these guys is evident in the quality of the track and in their twitter jests at each other’s sister and mom. The song features Rudy on vocals with Alesso & DIrty taking over with a sublime guitar & piano melody building into a drop with smooth strings, uplifting synth chords, dextrous key play and a determined bass line. I had originally thought that this summer had been devoid of truly great anthems to hang its hat on, but with some of the releases today and recently, I think that has been remedied, with Alesso coming through with two of them on not only “City Of Dreams”, but also “Years“. Dirty South has also announced his “City Of Dreams” tour which will take him all across North America starting this Thursday in Tallahassee and finishing November 24th in LA. Dates and more info after the jump.



Progressive House | Henrik B & Rudy – Leave A Light On (Incl NO_ID Remix)

Posted by on April 23, 2012

Finally after being premiered late last year and garnering a massive following from the get go, Henrik B’s masterpiece with Rudy “Leave A Light On” has released with an outstanding remix from the up and coming dutch duo NO_ID. With a chugging bass line, emotional melody with its backbone in the simple yet incredibly effective piano riff and addictive vocals from Rudy that i guarantee will have you belting out “I Said Hey, Will You Leave A Light On For Me” for at least the next week to everyone you see. The NO_ID remix strips down the track to its more more rhythm based core putting more emphasis on the bass line, making the break much more bass oriented and giving it more of a feel of their previous track “How Are You Feeling Right Now”. Axtone’s reign of supremacy this year continues, it can’t get better can it?
