What do you get when you cross a Grammy nominated mega producer, a break-though globetrotter that’s rising to the top and an über hot DJ-singer? You get “Alive”; the stunning new single by Dirty South and Thomas Gold. Dirty and Gold craft an impeccable Progressive House backdrop with Kate Elsworth’s sultry vocals, to unleash an uplifting, emotive tune that (as I write this) is currently #13 on Beatport’s Progressive House Charts. While listening, you can imagine this song blaring over a summer festival crowd, anywhere around the world. It’s got that kind of vibe.
Quick background check on the 3 names mentioned:
Dirty South: Grammy nominated Serbian-born Dragan Roganovic, relocated to Melbourne, Australia in his teens, and began releasing original music in 2004. It only took a couple of years before his singles and remixes would be worldwide. Early on, he worked alongside Axwell and David Guetta. He’s remixed Depeche Mode, Snoop Dogg, U2 and old school House/Techno king, Josh Wink; among many others. Along with producing, he’s a regular at the biggest clubs and festivals, all over the world.

Thomas Gold: Berlin based producer/DJ. Beatport and DJ Mag ranked him as a top “breakthrough” and “rising star”. His grueling production and touring schedule has landed him headlining gigs at mega-clubs like Ministry of Sound and Pacha. His original tunes and remixes are consistent downloads on Beatport. He’s worked with big names like: Fatboy Slim, Robbie Rivera, Fedde Le Grand, Trance legend Paul Van Dyk, and Erick Morillo; just name a few. His pace to the top is relentless.

Kate Elsworth: Singer-songwriter-DJ, from Sydney, Australia. Elsworth has already received recognition from Pete Tong and now Dirty South. She incorporates gorgeous live vocals over the massive club grooves from frequent collaborators, Exacta. They are set to release their debut album in 2011. While that’s brewing, she keeps herself busy with a worldwide touring schedule. Anyone with a fetish for female DJs (this includes me) will love Elsworth. Keep an eye on this hottie.
