ARTIST INTERVIEWS: Will Sparks

How do you handle music requests?

While I’m DJing? It’s a big NO from me haha!

 

What do you do when equipment goes on strike?

Nightmare scenario! I try and keep the crowd engaged with the microphone, while the crew try to get everything running again. I’ve had everything shut off for 10 minutes before at a club once, felt like an hour.

 

What are your musical influences from childhood?

I was into a lot of rock and hardcore music. This has definitely influenced the music I make now.

 

Is it even possible to argue about musical tastes?

NOPE! Everyone has different preferences, no one is wrong or right.

 

Which track would run when you moved into your boxing match?

Good question! Eye of the tiger always gets me going.

 

What was the worst job you ever had?

I worked packing meat in a fridge at the grocery store when I was in high school. I’d always come home smelling so bad haha.

 

Describes your sound to someone who has never heard it before.

Unique and upbeat!

 

Do you have any good tour stories from clubs or festivals?

I played a festival in Sweden a couple of years back, where I tried jumping on the table which the decks were on. When I landed on it the table flipped and the equipment and cut out all the music. Took a while to get everything working again but we go there eventually!

 

What would you do if you weren’t a musician?

Aussie Rules Football player. Google it

 

What is the most important musical equipment invention of all time – and why?

The computer. LOL

 

What would you advise to become a professional?

Work hard and don’t listen to outside noise. There will always be people trying to bring you down to their level.

WILL SPARKS RELEASES STELLAR NEW SINGLE ALONGSIDE

AMBA SHEPHERD AND TYRON HAPI

“Will Sparks is a guy you should already be familiar with… we can definitely confirm he is indeed ‘fully sick’.” – DJ MAG

“[He is] Australia’s biggest DJ” – MTV

Will Sparks has joined forces with fellow Aussie Tyron Hapi, and the well-known
songstress that is Amba Shepherd. This team of musical experts are releasing a fresh
track for our awaiting ears, Guilty as Sin.
Will’s mountain of success continues to rack up with ridiculous highlights like Blurred
Lines by Robin Thick (remix), Take Me with Gloria Kim and Sick Like That. Recent
release What I Do quickly reached #1 on the BP Big Room charts. Known as one of
Billboard’s most exciting young talents, Will has worked with a plethora of top notch
acts to deliver the best of electro and more.
Joining Will is self-taught pianist and natural musical talent, Tyron Hapi. At the ripe
age of 19, Tyron has made his mark as one of 2018’s most promising producers that
Australia has to offer. Tryon’s current discography includes originals, remixes and
collaborations with labels such as Spinnin, Universal, Dim Mak, Bourne Recordings
and Armada Records. As-well as working with heavy weights in the industry Timmy
Trumpet, Joel Fletcher and once again, Will Sparks. Equally mighty, Amba
Shepherd isn’t shy of releasing massive tunes. Specifically, her work with Hardwell on
their weapon of a release, Apollo.

Guilty as Sin is the new effort from this epic trio that is tinged with an unruly sense of
unpredictability. As ferocious as each individual, this track is built for the big stage this
summer.
