English-born Dragan Roganovic has lived in Melbourne from the age of 13, and started DJing through the lo-fi method of making mixtapes on his cassette deck by masterfully pressing the 'play' and 'pause' buttons. That he would eventually transfer his mixing skills to decks was inevitable.
While mastering the decks, he started producing his own music, anticipating the trend for bootlegs by mashing up everyone from Led Zeppelin to The Neptunes into rough-and-ready party tracks. These caught the attention of the Vicious Vinyl label, which signed him up for a record deal.
Some high-profile remixes followed, the first of which - a re-rub of Evermore's 'It's Too Late' - became an international club smash and established Roganovic's reputation as a master of reworking a song into a roughed-up sordid house monster.
The success of his own productions followed - 2005's 'Sleazy' set a perfectly seedy tone for what was to follow, and this year has seen him release a powerful trio of tracks: 'Better Day' (with Paul Harris), 'Everybody Freakin'' (with M.Y.N.C Project) and 'Let It Go' - his first release on Axwell's Axtone label
And it goes without saying that his DJing hasn't let up, either. Throughout 2007, Roganovic has combined residencies and festival appearances in Australia with regular tours around Europe, the USA and Asia.
