Dirty South set for Marquee Sydney debut

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.

with all the money the venue spends you'd think they'd spring for some decent graphic design......those flyers are very cheap & nasty

Im curious as to why we give a shit about Marquee in Vegas?!?!? Really - have you guys got a little "cash for comment" cooking with Marquee Sydney to keep it top of mind? It is the furthest club in Sydney in terms of interest for inthemix audience - yet there is so much of it written about both Sydney and Vegas that one can only wonder...

pity dirty south is playing here. he is a quality dj and probably one of top 3 australia has ever produced. a better setting and he would be wicked.

mister a, given the clubs are owned by the same people, the fact that he's a regular at the one in Vegas explains why they can fly him out for a one-off show at this kind of notice. That's the explanation there...

I was more talking about why inthemix are constantly reporting on Marquee (both Sydney & Vegas) in the first place. There seems to be more editorial about it than other clubs. And I guess I didn't think too many mixers would give a shit about Marquee
