Out now on iTunes: Dirty South spent the latter part of May touring the US from El Paso to Las Vegas and June ramps it up with stops in Chicago, NYC, Miami and LA. But theres no getting past the new track thats absolutely terrorizing dance floors at the moment Dirty Souths Phazing. The smash peaked at # 2 on the Beatport Singles Chart and was made Essential New Tune by BBC Radio Ones Pete Tong. But its only the beginning... Phase two of Phazing finds Tiësto sprinkling his magic dust on Dirty Souths original for whats bound to be one of the top remixes of 2010. Now, fans can buy a proper version of the track that they've only been able to hear through DJs at the clubs exclusively through Beatport!
