The Gallery has a proud heritage of showcasing new artists and musical styles. So for both a Gallery and Ministry debut which comes eagerly anticipated, please give London salutations to WILL SPARKS – arguably an unrivalled architect of the ‘Melbourne Bounce’ genre. Suitably qualified after having been born in the city, Sparks is a bonafide superstar Down Under and last year completed a sell-out Australia tour. From the remix of “Blurred Lines” by Robin Thicke which achieved global recognition, to a more recent collaboration with Priyanka Chopra entitled “Young and Free.” The common factor is wonky basslines, squelching melodies and horns aplenty to have The Box bouncing together in unison. Welcome Will, to The Gallery!
Here reveal five tracks from Will Sparks guaranteed for The Box – plus why they have been specially chosen.
Steve Aoki, Deorro, MAKJ & Max Styler - "Shakalaka"
Will Sparks: Shakalaka is a must play in all my sets recently. Goes wild!
Drake ft. Michael Jackson - "Don't Matter to Me"
Had chills down my spine when I first heard Michael Jackson on this track.
Reece Low & Chardy - "Medusa"
A couple of friends of mine from Australia teaming up for this one. Reece Low and Chardy never fail to disappoint.
Will Sparks, Tyron Hapi & Amber Shepard - "Guilty As Sin"
One of my recent releases with Tyron Hapi, and Amber Shepard on the vocals. Always love jumping on a record with Tyron.
JDG & New Haven - "IOU"
JDG is another mate of mine from back home. Love what he's been doing in the studio lately.
The Gallery presents Will Sparks on Friday, 3rd Aug. Tickets & more info here.
