Dirty South set for Marquee Sydney debut
Tue 26th Jun, 2012 Newsin
Avicii, Above & Beyond, Kaskade and Afrojack have been just some of the names to grace its flyers in recent months, and this Friday 29 June sees another A-lister on the guestlist for Marquee Sydney. Last seen here on the mainstage at Creamfields, Dirty South will jet in from a typically-busy Northern summer. A favourite of Marquee in Vegas, this will be a rare chance to see the Melbourne-bred talent do his thing in a club setting.
2012 has seen Dirty South’s star continue to rise in the Northern Hemisphere, from Ibiza to Vegas and many stops in between. In the months ahead, he’s ticking off stops at mighty dance festival Tomorrowland, Ushuaia and Pacha in Ibiza, Paradise Club in Mykonos and Cocoon in Frankfurt to name just a few. The DJ’s Phazing Records also continues to fire, with recent release Embrace from John Dahlback packaged with a Dirty South remix. “People seem to need more,” he told inthemix recently about crowds he’s playing to. “I think producers are going for energy. I’d like to see it go more melodic; less noise, more melodies. I think it reflects the new generation of kids. They’re more ADD, so to speak. More energy is cool and you need to adapt.”
Marquee has also announced its Friday headliners for the rest of July, including Cedric Gervais and Jermaine Dupri. Check out Dirty South’s set below from Electric Daisy Carnival in New York as a primer. It includes his own bootlegs and mash-ups alongside tracks from fellow big-roomers like Porter Robinson, Alesso, Sebastian Ingrosso and Michael Woods.
