Here is the interview by David Hagger from The World Loves Melbourne with Electro-house sensation Will Sparks:

1)What or who is your main inspiration?

Will: Definitely all the main boys from Melbourne..Orkestrated, Joel Fletcher, Samual James etc. Along with growing up listening to Deadmau5, Showtek, Afrojack, Avicii, Axwell & Steve Angello.. All these artists made me love dance music.

2)How did you become an international DJ supremo so quickly

Will: I think every person who is successful got to where they are from extreme hard work, passion, dealing with the lows and picking them self back up. A big one would have be being kind to everyone no matter what, networking, making friends and having time for the people that support you etc. The social network is your key to success these days, music wise. If you make music that a large majority of people enjoy then it will create hype and probably end up hitting millions of newfeeds.. Basically if you say you can’t do it, then you’re right.

3)Where is your fav place in the world and why?

Will: So far, Best Food & Wine, Palermo – Italy & Lyon – France 

Holiday wise probably have to be Airlie Beach/Hamilton Island

Clubbing – Vegas or Melbourne at its early stages of the genre

4)For aspiring DJ's what kind of equipment did you start with? 

Will: I started with 2 CDJ 800’s and a 700 mixer. Literally all I ever did was play sets in my room for hours. These days I encourage aspiring djs to get 2 cdj 2000’s and a 900 mixer, it’s the club standard so you will be at home for your gigs. My first gig ever I played on 1000’s for the first time so it wasn’t fun when already being so nervous

5)What is the concept behind Melbourne Bounce?

Will: Happy, boppy, yet dirty

6)Do you still have a connection with Caulfield Grammar?

Will: Not at all, I’m sure they miss me J

7)What does the future hold in 2014 for you?

Will: I’m constantly touring around the world this year. My schedule is ridiculous. An Album is coming and basically finished, heaps of singles are already on the way so I hope everyone enjoys!
