Dragan Roganović, better known by his stage name Dirty South, is a Serbian-born Australian DJ, remixer and record producer based in Melbourne. Roganović began his musical journey at the young age of just 13. The EDM rookie first started improvising with his old NEC Hi-Fi and mixing with the tape decks. Eventually, he started made bootlegs and mashups with this family computer, software, and keyboard and in 2004 began his first official production as Dirty South. Roganović's releases and remixes flooded the online music community and quickly caught the attention of the popular Australian record company, “Vicious Vinyl,” who signed him just one year later. Dirty South's signature house sounds and elevating melodies have made him a household name in the EDM world. In 2005 and 2006, he received many honors including two ARIA (Australian Music Industry's Top Accolade) nominations for "Best Dance Release," and he came out on top as the "Most Popular Producer Nationally" for InTheMix in 2007. He also became the first Australian artist to win one of Pete Tong's “Essential New Tune Award’s” since 1999. Not many know that Roganović is also a Grammy-nominated DJ; his remix for Kaskade's "Sorry" and Temper Trap's "Sweet Disposition" were both nominated for Best Remixed Recording. Dirty South's most recent release in August 2012, "City of Dreams" with Alessa and Ruben Haze reached the No. 1 spot on Beatport’s Top 100 the first week of its release. He now plays at some of the biggest festivals and the most historic venues such as New York's Roseland Ballroom and Los Angeles' Palladium. Dirty South's highly anticipated album is set to release in 2013.
