WILL SPARKS ‘BLURRED LINES’ Remix
Since his debut release just 18 months ago, Australian powerhouse Will Sparks has been relentless in his rise up the DJ hierarchy. With a Beatport Electro-House #1 already under his belt and recent electrifying appearances at some of Australia’s most notable super-festivals – Stereosonic, Future Music, SummerDayze and Goodlife to name but a few – the Melbourne-born prodigy has now been charged with perhaps his most prestigious job to date; to officially remix Robin Thicke’s worldwide summer smash, ‘Blurred Lines.’
Following on from Laidback Luke’s first bass-heavy edit, Will now takes an entirely different route on the way to remixing what has undoubtedly become one of the tracks of the year so far. Starting out by staying true to the original’s roots, Sparks lays those unmistakable lyrics over some syncopated claps that echo the Pharell Williams production, before leading us towards a drop that is bound to get fans around the world all blurred and bouncing.
With a mere one minute and 15 seconds of the track heard so far however, it’s anybody’s guess what Will Sparks has left in his locker. We’ll just have to wait and see what it is when the full version is released on Interscope Records very soon!
