001/004 WINTER SERIES.
OUR FIRST PHASE OF A SERIES OF EVENTS THIS WINTER.
The legendary Pete Tong of BBC Radio 1 singled out Willaris. K as the next artist to watch from Australia, saying "he has already got something that is really hard to attain. If I listen to an hour of music that was kind of similar to his melodic techno, when his track came on, I would know it was his." Similarly triple j radio in Australia have backed Willaris. K heralding him as one of their 10 Unearthed artists to watch in 2018.
In just over a year, the 24-year-old beatmaker has cemented his place as one of Australia's best new electronic talents. His music blends ambience and melody with heaving, nocturnal beats - it's dark and cathartic in equal measure.
First came 'Alchemy', the debut single that saw Willaris. K break through with airplay on triple j and Sydney's FBi. Before 2017 was through he delivered two more tracks - 'River Song' and 'Dour Nights', which BBC Radio 1's Pete Tong named his Essential New Tune - as well as turning in a remix for Exhibitionist.
"I'm a fly, buzzing amongst the apocalypse and this is my soundtrack"
