It's not every day that you have a chance to chat with one of the people who, unbeknownst to them, helped change your life and realize your purpose in this world. Quick story: rewind nearly ten years ago to EDC in LA. I'd been at the event since it opened, having a blast, and as the sun finally started to set, a DJ by the name of Dirty South took the stage. From the moment he pressed play, his set, and the rest of the DJs that followed helped me understand that, somehow, I was meant to mix records and make electronic music. While my tastes have most certainly changed, which is something we discuss in this podcast, I can, without ANY hesitation, say that Friday night was the best and most important night of my life. 

Perhaps known for his smash hits, City of Dreams, Let It Go, and of course, his remix of Sweet Disposition with Axwell. While this might be the last you listened to him, his latest EP, Little Devious, which is out on Lane 8's This Never Happened, shows a much more patient and perhaps serious side of the Australian mega talent. In this episode, we discuss how he became Dirty South, transitioning out of the EDM realm, composing for and producing films, and of course, the process of creation for the new EP, which is a fantastic piece of work. 

Special thanks to our sponsors LANDR and Rode Mics for helping make this podcast possible.
