DJ and producer Will Sparks is releases his much-anticipated EP, ‘Nothing More, Nothing Less’ out now on Armada Music.

The 4-track “Nothing More, Nothing Less,” features work the pioneering Melbourne Bounce artist achieved during time spent in the studio during the coronavirus pandemic. The EP’s hypnotic beats are punctuated by synthesized melodies and ethereal vocals by female artist Colleen D’Agostino.

“This body of work started at the beginning of COVID-19. I worked my way back into a routine and was in the studio daily. It inspired me to think outside the box and change my sound while sticking to my roots. I’ve always valued authentic, hard-hitting music that makes the listener feel a sense of euphoria. I’ve challenged myself to design sounds and create certain musical techniques that have never been done before. This period of exploration and experimentation was such a release for me. It gave me a purpose and the belief that my sound is continuing to evolve,” said artist Will Sparks.

Fans of Will Sparks will appreciate the new creative energy he brings to his latest EP release, which features the same hard and aggressive sound that’s heard in his previous work. However, Sparks has left his comfort zone and begun to experiment with new sounds and catchy beats to appeal to dance music fans who are craving something fresh. With his latest EP, Sparks shows that he is ready to evolve his sound yet again to pursue a new take on the modern house and techno music genres that he’s already helped invigorate. The project brandishes the production prowess of emerging producer ShortRound, who accompanies Sparks on “Pills.” ShortRound is a DJ/Producer local to the Melbourne scene, looking to accompany Will as he wields this new style.

“The name of the EP, ‘Nothing More, Nothing Less,’ resonates with the idea that listeners will expect to be surprised, and won’t be surprised when they are. It’s time to continue the journey of creating smacking, banging, thumping, jumping, snapping, clapping Will Sparks music,” Sparks said.

Will Sparks is a DJ and double-Platinum music producer from Melbourne, Australia. He has had a profound impact in the world of dance music and is a pioneer of the “Melbourne Bounce” sub-genre of EDM music. His unique sound has landed him at the top of streaming charts, inside the hottest clubs around the globe, and on the lineup at countless music festivals.
