Recently, EDM Maniac had a few moments to catch up with 20 year-old Australian DJ and Producer, Will Sparks. Will sparks is quickly growing in popularity within the dance music community, and his first single ‘Ah Yeah’ hit #3 on the Beatport charts — a notable mention for someone so young.
His high quality and unique productions have gotten him support from some of the biggest artists in the scene today, with his tracks hugely supported by the likes of David Guetta, Madeon, Dada Life, Chuckie, Rehab, A-Trak, and Lazy Rich.
Quickly rising on the Australian club and festival scene, Will has played some of Australia’s leading venues and festivals. He has performed at Stereosonic for 2 years in a row along with Tiesto, Avicii, Calvin Harris, Chuckie, Dash Berlin, Boys Noize and many more. Will also made appearances at Goodlife Festival, Future Music Festival and SummerDayze.
We recently caught Will at ‘TomorrowWorld ‘and at ‘Tramps Like Us’ in San Diego and were completely blown away by his high energy and his remixes. His unique sound combined with his high energy sets make Will someone you want to be on the look out for. We can’t wait to hear more from him and watch him become more prominent in the scene. He’s a real testament to the surge in young artists making themselves known!
