Will Sparks is a truly passionate guy. He's passionate about his city, about his music and most of all, about his fans. His dream is simply to see them happy, and, as Will confesses to DJ Mag, he's living that dream everyday.

Rising all the way from No.126 in last year's poll, it's obvious Will is doing something right, but there's evidence elsewhere too. His massive 2014 collaboration with Wiley and Elen Levon, 'Ah Yeah So What', has clocked up over 4.5million YouTube plays to date; whilst his latest single, 'Sick Like That', has already picked up over 250,000 plays on SoundCloud.

Having become a firm favourite in his home nation over the past few years, 2015 has seen the Aussie go for gold on a global scale. Gigging in North America or Europe most weekends, it's not surprising that Will describes his lifestyle as “non-stop”, but he makes it clear to DJ Mag: “I haven't stopped and I won't stop.” 

With that kind of confidence and enthusiasm we're inclined to believe him, and if the electrifying Super Saiyan artwork for 'Sick Like That' is anything to go by, nobody else will be stopping Will either.
