Dirty South – darko
There are few names in Dance Music that have been able to stand the test of time. One of the few has has, is Dirty South. Having produced & remixed for everyone from Kaskade to Snoop Dogg, the Melbourne base producer has once again proven his worth. While usually being known for his melodic anthems, Dirty South takes a sharp left with ‘darko’. The sonic direction he takes us on in ‘darko’ is no “City Of Dreams” with Alesso, but it is still melodic, and is chalk-full of anthems nonetheless.
Earlier this year, South promised us a second album. He did this after already having released his album ‘XV‘ in February of this same year. Well, it goes without saying that the man has finally delivered. He has done so in the form of his new 8 – track record titled ‘darko. If you’re a fan of artists such as Yotto, Lane 8, or even Rüfüs Du Sol, you might enjoy this album. The album is full of brooding synths, playful arpeggios, dirty basses, and stellar sound design. What more could we ask for?
In familiar Dirty South fashion, each track is different in its own way. Despite this, the 8-track LP is truly one cohesive body of work. Each track on the track list can without a doubt able to hold its own if it were to be released as a single. As I write this, the track that I literally caught myself dancing to was ‘Rossa’.
However, don’t discount the rest of the album off of that alone. The opening track ‘Temps’ is worth a listen, as it truly opens up the album, luring us in with short playful melodies and beautiful chord swells. It also features some great brass stabs, which I think are pretty awesome.
Dirty South takes a unique approach in the creation of ‘Kino’ by doing his favorite thing, which is to:
“…make these long “4-chord riffs” and making them work for duration of the song – or at least most of it.”
While ‘Casetta’ was birthed from the inspiration he received from a new delay plugin he got got, which is called “Carbon Copy” and is by u-He. ‘Konda” was created from a “preset sequence” that South flipped, and flopped, and cut & chopped until it became his own, and is definitely one of the groovier tracks on the album. Lava is neat, as it comes in strong, and fast, commanding a vibe that we can’t help but vibe away to.
Dirty South went on record, stating that the final track of the LP ‘Corda’, is in his opinion, the most beautiful track on the album. In an interview with Billboard, Dirty South stated the following when talking about ‘Corda‘:
“To me, it’s the most beautiful track on the album, and I wanted to end the album with it. The chords evolve and harmonies build all throughout the track to create this really cool tension. It gets a little crazy at times but still feels patient, and there is space for everything.”
Regardless of what track you think is the best, they are all worth a listen, or 5. ‘darko’ is out now on Dirty South’s own Phazing Records, and can be streamed below, Enjoy.

The creators of London’s famed Printworks club have just announced a brand new venue: The Drumsheds. Printworks London is already recognized as one of the premier clubs in the world, and now the team behind the success is set to launch a massive new project.
The Drumsheds combines four interlinked warehouses with a capacity of 10,000 inside, as well as a further 10 acres of space outside. One warehouse usually does the trick, as Printworks can attest. Add 3 more warehouses, now you’ve got yourself a potentially legendary venue.
The Drumsheds is located in Northern London, away from the constraints of a bustling city but still easily accessible. The venue used to be a gasworks from the 1930s to the 1970s, creating quite an amazing backdrop. Now, The Drumsheds is finalizing an epic revival which will see it become one of the hottest spots in London.
The inaugural event will take place on June 7-8 of this year: the Field Day festival. The event will see the likes of Diplo, Seth Troxler, Earl Sweatshirt, and more play across the two days.

A new social media application is turning the way we stream music into a constantly changing, living, breathing video while allowing artists to be paid for their tracks.
Here’s how Vertigo works:
With a premium Spotify or iTunes account, a user can select any song using the new social media application, Vertigo, and upload a photo or short video, generally less than 30 seconds, to any part of the selected song and have their photo or clip become a part of the ‘Song Story’ that Vertigo provides for that track.
In essence, Vertigo takes the best of Snapchat and Instagram and uses your song choice as the soundtrack for your photo or video clip.
As this is a crowd-sourced living, breathing entity, the Song Story changes constantly. “Our Song Stories are a composite of the user-generated content,” says Greg Leekley, founder of Vertigo. “So, in order for your uploaded photo or video clip to stay a part of the Song Story, ‘likes’ are required.”
While users can preview their photo or clip before posting, it won’t immediately become a part of the Song Story until it has enough ’likes’ to surpass someone else’s clip or photo already in that section of the song.View the 5 images of this gallery on the original article
So, how do you get ‘likes’? Well, this is where networking comes into play. Users can post their photos or video clips to third-party social media platforms (Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat, etc) and invite their friends to ‘like’ their upload to push the clip or photo up in the queue.
The challenging part is to keep your submission in the Song Story without someone else’s clip for that part of the song knocking you out of the queue.
And, with the major discussion of the moment being the lack of royalties being paid to streaming artists Greg says, “It’s a great way for artists – local and world-renowned – to interact with their fans and get paid because each time Vertigo is used the user is giving a click to the artist by using their already paid premium streaming service.”
“Artists are the most followed in social media,” said Greg, but apart from their music videos, there has been no direct way to leverage that social influence directly tied to their music. Even when they share a lean forward music video, there is a value gap in what the receive economically per listen compared to the higher payouts from premium streaming accounts even when a more lean back or passive listening experience.”
But, Vertigo goes deeper than that by also offering the ability to hold live mixers, where users can collectively listen to music, add songs to the cue, and chat with each other all within the app. This allows users to enter a shared musical experience without being in the same location. So when a new song drops, you and your friends can listen to it together no matter the location – more friends listening and chatting while the record is playing on a virtual jukebox equals more clicks for the artist. It literally is a win-win.
“Vertigo has received a patent to do what we do legally because there is no broadcast, nor do we distribute or stream music,” said Greg. “What we’ve done is flipped the responsibility from the broadcaster to the listener. Each time someone in Vertigo hears music, they’re hearing it from their own premium stream account. You never hear music with someone, you just suggest, through Vertigo, what you should hear from your own premium Spotify or Apple account.”
Vertigo has also landed a patent to add social content to this environment. Now, when a million people see a social post, that’s a million clicks that the artist just received for their song – instantaneously.
While still in the early stages, Vertigo is already a hit for those that strive for that user-generated snackable content.
Vertigo is free and available now from the App Store.
