The aussie never messes around when it comes to crazy tracks, and “Vienna” is just yet another to put on the list.
How many people can say “I invented a genre”? Definitely not many, but Will Sparks surely can. Born William James Sparks in Melbourne, Australia, this man hasn’t had a quiet day in his DJ/Producer life since he skyrocketed to fame all the way back in 2012 with “Ah Yeah”. Now aged 26, with an 8-year career, Sparks has done it all: played the biggest stages, shared the biggest moments, collaborated with the biggest in the game and has his own Bourne Recordings label. With nothing else left to prove for Will, every release is just a question of how far he can push the boundaries of his sound, first pioneered in Melbourne Bounce, but since adjusted to harder beats.
Off the back of his remix of Armin Van Buuren’s track “Song I Sing” and dark club anthem “Disco Dancing”, comes another track to make speakers screech and commit suicide: introducing “Vienna”.
Kicking off with a plucky latin-like guitar sample and a clear high energy beat, we’re quickly taken to the short build up, briefly anticipating a titanic drop with psytrance kicks and synths reminiscent of Will Sparks’ days of Melbourne Bounce. The breakdown adds a melodic touch, developing the initial guitar with piano chords and a sentimental melody which still holds up after the synths have been introduced. A hollow snare fill and clicky percussion takes us to the second drop, designed to make you get off your buckaroo.
