2017 marks the third year in a row that Will Sparks has made our poll, thereby justifying his choice to drop out of school early in order to pursue a music career. That was back home in Melbourne, Australia, and since then he has turned out some huge electro-house hits, most of which hit the higher end of the Beatport chart.
Still only 24, Will put out 'Young & Free' (featuring Priyanka Chopra) earlier this year on Ultra Records, and is currently on a huge tour of his native Australia. His latest missive is ‘Take Me’, an unashamedly emotive, pop-leaning tune with big, festival-sized vocals from Gloria Kim and farty synth stabs to amp you right up. It landed on Spinnin Records recently and comes despite him having a busy tour diary that has taken him all over the world again in 2017. In fact, he was too busy to find time to talk to us, and his manager says that even “trying to get him to the airport is tough at the moment”.
