As the second collaboration between the Dirty South and Michael Brun, "Rift," was released today on Brun's adoptive record label, Phazing Records. Previously getting together on a hugely popular remix of Brun's single "Rise" back in March, "Rift" premiered as an unfinished preview only lasting seconds on Dirty South's Phazing Radio a few months ago. Even then we could tell the collaboration was one that both parties were working tirelessly on, and listening now the depth of production from Brun and quality finishing from Dirty South shine through.
Finishing off a world tour and a year full of hits, Dirty South has risen to fame due to collaborations with those like Thomas Gold to Alesso, all with success on the Beatport and iTunes charts. His own record label took Brun in to help showcase his talent because he's become a resident progressive producer out of Haiti, and become one we can look to for layered, intricate progressions. Pair the with the Aussie king of uplifting festival hits, and the result is a single that straddles the line between uplifting and dark, making for an intriguing listen.
