Soothsayer are proud to present Full Noise, the heaving four-track EP from Melbourne-based producer, Willaris. K.
Having recently remixed tracks for both Flume and DMA’S, Willaris. K continues to display his breadth of diversity, and ability to add his unique driving energy to everything he touches. With today’s release, the spotlight is turned to the EP’s explosive closer, ‘Full Circle’ featuring Australian dance legend Paul Mac.
Taking a step away from his more introspective moments and drawing inspiration from his late night DJ sets, Full Noise is an ode to the club – a reminder of the glory of what was and will one day be again.
Featuring an impressive line-up of well-regarded creators that have influenced his own sound, along with Paul Mac, McAllister shows his chemistry with American rapper and sound designer WaveIQ and composer, producer, beatmaker and Seekae founder, George Nicholas (GN).
Teaming up with good friend, George Nicholas, EP opener ‘Blunt Sword (feat. GN)’ kicks off with a cardinal beat that coils into restricted, sparse moments of serenity, setting the pace for Full Noise, before leading into the EP’s show-stopping first single, ‘Chapel (feat. WaveIQ)’.
Created with Passion Pit’s Nate Donmoyer, renowned producer Tim Anderson (Halsey, Banks, Dizzee Rascal) and WaveIQ, ‘Chapel’ showcases Willaris. K’s most direct yet diverse sonic work to date.
The track was quickly added to triple j and received strong playlisting support from Spotify and Apple Music. The accompanying video for ‘Chapel’ was directed by Mortis Studio (Pink Siifu, Tame Impala, Earl Sweatshirt) and mirrors the track’s frenetic energy in the form of WaveIQ’s powerful DIY performance.
Next up is ‘Tanzmaus’, a primitive composition which wastes no time in getting your heart rate to an almost uncomfortable level, with the EP rounded out by ‘Full Circle (feat. Paul Mac)’, a track that dives into Australia’s rich rave history, drawing references to Paul Mac’s previous project Itch-E & Scratch-E. ‘Full Circle’ is an eruption of texture and sound that showcases Willaris. K’s unwavering ability to create evocative dance music.
Paul Mac shares, “I love this track, writing it felt effortless and powerful at the same time. Now I just can’t wait to hear it on a sweaty dance floor.”
Full Noise follows May’s LUSTRE EP, which was met with praise from media and fans worldwide, with Mixmag giving the release a 9/10 and The Guardian UK naming him ‘One To Watch’, leading to the producer completing a guest mix for Diplo’s Revolution program on SirusXM, the curation of a Beats 1 One Mix and a triple j Mix Up Takeover.
Willaris. K has played sold-out shows around the world, supported the likes of RÜFÜS DU SOL and recorded in iconic studios such as Rick Rubin’s Shangri-La. While the current global crisis has halted tour plans, Willaris. K shows no signs of slowing down creatively.
After a chance encounter one night with Aus favourites DMA’S, he gave the band’s hit single ‘Life Is A Game Of Changing’ a dark rework and he recently lent his remixing skills to long-time friend Flume.
On Full Noise, Willaris. K turns up the tempo and channels the electric warehouse energy of his globally celebrated live show, to deliver a mind-melting EP tailored for the dancefloor.
