Serbian born, Australia breed DJ, producer, and label owner Dragan Roganović, better known to you and rest of the world as Dirty South just released his fourth studio album, ‘darko‘. Make it even more impressive, it’s his second album of this year. The first one, called ‘XV‘ as a mark of his 15 years long career, came out earlier in this year, back in February.
His first album ‘Speed of Life‘ was released back in 2013; then in 2014 came out ‘With You’ accompanied by a short movie and this year it was ‘XV‘ and now it’s time for ‘darko’. Besides these fourth albums, Dirty South also made a soundtrack to the movie ‘Suburban Cowboy’.
‘darko’ consists of 8 brand new records. The album is probably the first one that contains only instrumental records, without any vocals. It’s deep, melancholy, and melodic, and it takes you on an unforgettable journey. You can easily listen to this album at home, but at the same time, it has energy, that will make you move on the dance floor.
Dirty South released his fourth studio album in the form of ‘darko’ on his Phazing imprint.
Dirty South released a super interesting interview about the album with Billboard. He describes every single track in depth and we would like to quote him talking about the opening record of Darko.
This was the last track that I made for this album. After it was completed and I was figuring out the best running order, it felt like a great opener for the album. […] I’ve played it to a few close friends, and it’s one of their favorites of the album. It gives me a sort of medieval vibe.
Like all of his previous albums, Dirty South released this album via his own imprint Phazing Records. And on his Twitter account, he called this album as ‘my favorite album‘. At the time when you press play, you will fully understand. It’s a testament and full expression about the musical changes that Dirty South undertook in the last couple of years. It’s Dirty South at his best.
The 31st of October, Dirty South published a 48-second short movie titled ‘Dirty South 2018 Highlights’. It shows the incredible year spent by the man, between studio sessions, festivals and club gigs.
