Dirty South does not disappoint. Throughout the past several years, dance music has indeed become more commercialized nonetheless, but Dragan has stuck to the integrity that has catapulted him to where he is today. Always complete with beautiful melodies and emotion, his remix of Miike Snow "Devil's Work" on his own imprint Phazing Records is no different. This one brings back a great feeling. It was just 6 weeks ago in Miami when I heard Sebastian Ingrosso and Alesso drop this bad boy to a packed, intimate house at WALL during Winter Music Conference. It had the Swedish House Mafia big room feel to it, the vocals and the all elements. I assure you that nobody knew what this track was at the time. After getting back to LA and doing some homework, I figured it out.
It is heart-wrenching and I'd absolutely consider it as one of the best progressive house tracks of the year. I have been tracking it on Beatport since it's release two weeks ago, as its steadily went from #57 to #46 to #1. Yeah, it's #1...for a reason. Sit back and enjoy. Here's his Phazing Radio show from April too, it's a good listen.
This is the highlight of the radio show for me.
In other news, apparently Dirty South and Alesso have been in the studio together in Australia and it seems Dirty may have dropped their collaboration at Creamfields Perth! It may be called "City Of Dreams" or "I Still Miss You." Stay tuned.
