Dirty South is the newest single from legendary global music outfit Beats Antique (past releases with Bassnectar, The Glitch Mob, Les Claypool, Preservation Hall Jazz Band), alongside Indian chart-topping producer and regional festival mainstay Gurbax. The track is a sure-pleaser for any Troyboi fans, melding global sounds with devilish trap drops. David Satori from Beats Antique further explains the story behind the music-
Back in 2015 I traveled to India to explore and finally experience its magic. This incredible artist GURBAX opened for me at a funky outdoor club in Goa called Teso and I realized I was listening to the next generation of Indian bass music. Bass music at that time was just hitting in India and the syncopated rhythms and heavy drops that Gurbax was laying down was a sign of the times. Little did we know that Gurbax had spent time in America studying Music Production in New York City and Atlanta and was a fan of Beats Antique….
Now 5 year laters, we finally made a track together with Gurbax. Dirty South is a testament to the ongoing evolution of global bass music. With the heavy influences of American dirty southern hip hop to the traditional South of India, this track is a conversation of contrasting cultures finding common links though the sweaty grit that is the south.
