The house DJ, who recently signed to Astralwerks, is bolstering his fall album release by pairing it with a movie he wrote, shot and directed.
Dirty South, a lauded house DJ whose remixes have been nominated for two Grammy awards, is gearing up to release his second studio album, With You, in September. But he's gunning for more than the music charts. To accompany the album, the Serbian producer (real name: Dragan Roganovic) wrote, directed and shot a short movie of the same name that he's entering into film festivals and screening in Los Angeles on August 11. The album served as the inspiration and soundtrack. Watch the exclusive trailer below.
"A lot of people assumed I was making a music video," Roganovic said in a phone interview from London. "I get the skepticism, the idea of a DJ making a movie probably rolled a few eyeballs, but it was really a serious project."
