The work is furthermore miraculous in its sonic diversity, working with a variety different sounds and associated moods over the course its ten tracks to forge a release that remains impeccable and refined in its balance despite its roving.

Such fluidity between different tones can be witnessed in cuts like “Night Walks” and “Higher.” “Sonar” and “Love Story” surface as other sweet spots on XV’s track list. XV additionally invites the return previous Dirty South collaborators, and , on “Higher” and “Love Story,” and “If It All Stops,” and “Next to You,” respectively.

XV is emblematic not solely Dirty South’s command the melodically entrancing, but the Serbian-Australian producer’s longevity. Dirty South would release his first ‘ficial’ production under the “Dirty South” stage name in 2004—14 years later, Dirty South continues to enthrall listeners with ease, and last, but hardly least, with dexterity.
