DJ-Producer GURBAX has collaborated with California-based musical group Beats Antique for his latest single titled “Dirty south”.

Talking about the single, GURBAX said: “A constant theme in my music has been to attempt a perfect intersection between the two cultures that have impacted my life the most – Indian and American. Growing up in both places meant my music had undeniably become this mutant love-child of the East and the West. However, up until this point, I had never actually attempted to combine the cultures of the specific cities that influenced me the most, namely — Bengaluru and Atlanta. ‘Dirty south’ attempts to do just that.”

“It draws inspiration from the instrumentation, rhythms and musical motifs that are quintessential to both cities — coincidentally both situated in the South of their respective countries – and combining them in a way that’s refreshingly contemporary,” added GURBAX, who has shared the stage with several international artists like Steve Aoki, Marshmello, Wiz Khalifa and Troyboi.

With a combination between traditional South-Indian instrumentation and modern ‘dirty south’ hip-hop/trap, the track aims to transport the listener into an alternative universe with influences from South India.

On the song, Beats Antique said: “This new release is a testament to the ongoing evolution of Global Bass Music. With the heavy influences of American ‘dirty-south hip hop’ to the haunting melodic glitched Nadaswaram from South India – this track is a conversation of contrasting cultures finding common links though the sweaty grit that is the south.”

Looking back at how the collaboration took form, GURBAX said: “During the summer of 2019, I was in the US on my North America tour when they invited me over to their studio in Berkeley, California and we ended up vibing on this beat that I had created earlier… We created some sketches together for what the final arrangement would sound like and a couple of weeks later, they sent over their violin and live drum recordings which ended up being the perfect catalyst to finish the track.”

In July, GURBAX will also be a part of the line-up of a digital music festival called Electric Blockaloo.
