About Dirty South
Dragan Roganovic, known as Dirty South, is a Serbian-born, Australian-based DJ, producer and songwriter whose acclaimed work has received such honors as two GRAMMY nominations, two ARIA nominations (Australian Music Industry’s top accolade) and a “Best Producer” trophy from the inthemix top 50 awards, among others.

Recent production credits include three tracks on British recording artist Example’s latest album “The Evolution of Man” and one track on his previous album “Playing in the Shadows.”
Dragan got his start at the early age of 13 growing up in Melbourne, Australia. Influenced by everything around him, the artist started improvising with his old NEC Hi-Fi and mixing with the tape decks, and then started making bootlegs and mashups, which eventually lead to getting a computer, software and keyboard that resulted in his first official production in 2004 as Dirty South. The DJ/producer has gone on to play for some of the best clubs and festivals across the globe, including Ultra Music Festival, Pacha in Ibiza and New York, Ministry of Sound and more. At the end of 2012, he wrapped the largest North American tour of his career, the “City of Dreams” tour, which included sold-out shows at the iconic Hollywood Palladium and New York City’s Roseland Ballroom. With only a few short years under his belt in the international production scene, Dirty South’s potential to achieve tremendous musical heights seems limitless.
