Dirty South Announces North American “Speed Of Light” Tour Dates
LOS ANGELES (March 7, 2013) – GRAMMY-nominated, Australian DJ, musician and producer Dirty South has announced his “Speed of Life” North American Tour in support of his debut full-length studio album “Speed of Life,” which debuted at #1 on the iTunes Dance Chart this week. On the heels of the biggest North American tour of his career, which featured sold-out shows at New York’s Roseland Ballroom and Hollywood’s Palladium, the “Speed of Life” Tour will begin on March 29 and go through April 27. Bookended by his Wynn Las Vegas residency and also featuring a stop at ULTRA Music festival, the tour will take the DJ to 14 stops across North America in less than a month. Tickets are available now – visit www.dirtysouth.com for more information.
“It has really been an amazing and gratifying experience to release my first album and have it top the iTunes chart,” said Dirty South. “Now, I’m very excited to be taking this music on the road. After having played much larger venues this past fall, I’m looking forward to bringing a more intimate, yet high energy, show for the ‘Speed of Life’ Tour.”
“This album is called Speed Of Light. It’s a reflection of me and my career over the last 10 years. It was made in planes, hotels, studios and random places. I’m really proud of it and I hope you like it too.”
Dirty South’s debut album, “Speed of Life,” is a 10-track album of emotionally charged numbers inspired by his travels while touring and featuring collaborations with a number of talented artists. The highly anticipated album not only showcases the evolution of an immensely talented DJ on the rise, but also features the musical talents of Joe Gil, Rudy and Ruben Haze (Dirty South’s band collaboration between him and Rudy). The long-awaited album aims to take listeners on an emotional and cinematic journey to a land of big room, electronic bliss.
Currently available exclusively on iTunes, “Speed of Life” will be released on CD and through all digital retailers in the following months. Starting April 2, extended versions of four tracks off of the album will released through Beatport – one track will be released every two weeks. Each track will have its own artwork, as each track does on the CD and digital booklet.
