It’s looking like another big year for Aussie [artist id="1225657"]Dirty South[/artist] (born Dragan Roganovic) as he gears up for what’s certain to be a massive week in Miami. Coming off a huge 2010, highlighted by his club smash “Phazing,” Roganovic is now poised to unleash a Miami monster with good friend and Swedish House Mafia third [artist id="1531301"]Axwell[/artist].
“He was actually just here with me in the studio a few minutes ago,” Roganovic told MTV News. “We’ve been working on our new track along with Rudy called ‘Dreams,’ a really solid big-room track that we’re trying have finished for Miami.”
If it indeed makes the cut in time for Miami Music Week, the piano-laden progressive house bomb featuring Rudy’s vocals is poised to be one of Miami’s most-buzzed-about tracks. Having already been featured on several Dirty South and Axwell collaborations including their latest, “Open Your Heart,” and Axwell’s anthemic remix of TV Rock’s “In the Air,” Rudy brings high-flying and euphoric vocals into the mix.
“Dreams” comes on the heels of another massive release, “Coming Home” featuring Skylar Grey, a remix commissioned by Diddy himself, which dropped on Beatport just last week and is grabbing massive support from the likes of Pete Tong and others.
Dirty South will have a major presence at some of Miami’s biggest shows this week, including his own Star Phazing party Thursday at Mansion and the Surfcomber Closing Party with Axwell on Sunday. He’s also slated to take the stage at Swedish House Mafia’s “Miami Masquerade Motel: One Night Stand,” where he’ll play along with, among many others, his good friend Max Vangeli. Some fans expressed concern the two DJs were feuding, based on some recent tweets.
“First gym session in a while, I’m in pain!” Vangeli tweeted.
“You mean, you just got back from ‘Pilates For Young Women Class’?” Dirty South wrote back.
“It’s funny with Max and I. Most people totally understand that it was just him and I going back and forth, totally joking around,” Roganovic explained with a laugh. “But some people took it seriously and thought were really going at it! But it’s all fun, and we’re good friends. We’re actually getting shirts made up for Miami with the two of us with boxing gloves on!”
