Live Review: Willaris. K offers up compelling and captivating vibes in his guest mix

9 June 2017 | 12:00 pm | Staff Writer

Newcomer WILLARIS. K has had a pretty epic run lately. From dropping his first (and only) song a while back in 'Alchemy', he's played across the country supporting CROOKED COLOURSPALMS TRAXSEEKAE DJS and ROLAND TINGS, played at GROOVIN THE MOO, and is set to play at SPLENDOUR IN THE GRASS - just casually. It's understandable though, as 'Alchemy' really is incredible. Gripping your attention from the first few seconds and refusing to let go, Willaris. K takes you down the rabbit hole with his progressive, meticulous production.

Set to also perform at our Eleventh Birthday as part of VIVID 2017, we've got a pretty good hunch this guy is about to be everywhere soon. So, before he blows up, Flume-style, we got him on board to deliver a guest mix for our radio show on FBi. Recently, Purple Sneakers was thrilled to be including in the merging of FBi Radio and FBi Click, after a few years on the digital station, and we're so excited to be coming across and going live to air Saturday nights. Fittingly, this special mix from Willaris. K will be the first mix on our new show, and we couldn't think of a better artist to share this experience with.

Get lost in the mysterious and captivating energy from Willaris. K, as he once again takes us down the rabbit hole of his dark, eerie and intoxicating sounds. Catch him live at VIVID SYDNEY PRESENTS PURPLE SNEAKERS ELEVENTH BIRTHDAY, from 5pm on June 17th at The Lord Gladstone. Free entry, no lockouts, info below.
