Following the release of Dirty South‘s stunning debut album Speed of Life earlier this year and the recent Beatport topping success of Alesso‘s remix of OneRepublic’s “If I Lose Myself”, the pair announce the full release of “City Of Dreams” featuring Ruben Haze.
The popular single demonstrates the breadth and calibre of Dragan Roganovic (Dirty South) and Alessandro Lindblad’s (Alesso) talents, not just as producers and DJs but also as songwriters and musicians, with Dirty South himself being one half of the Ruben Haze project, a band duo with Rudy whose vocals are featured on “City Of Dreams.” The song, originally composed by Ruben Haze, showcases a softer melodic side of the duo, normally famous for their big-room house sound. Dirty South teamed up with hugely talented Swedish DJ & producer Alesso on the rework of the indie track, which is no less than an emotional magnum opus, featuring beautiful builds and aching hooks.
“Collaborating with Rudy under the alias ‘Ruben Haze’ to write, produce and record the original ‘City of Dreams’ was a very invigorating special side project,” said Dirty South. “The take on the track that Alesso and I did made it an even more exceptional single to me.”
