Colours are very proud to present the LETS BOUNCE TOUR! We’re bringing back two of the stars who rocked Coloursfest 2014, the super talented WILL SPARKS & JOEL FLETCHER. Fresh from their US Bounce Bus tour, Will & Joel are ready to get you bouncing at Scotland’s number one venue, The Arches! Their unmistakable sound is going to blow the roof off the venue… this is something you don’t want to miss.
At 21 years young, Will Sparks has cemented his position as the undisputed KING of the globally loved Melbourne sound. Countless original productions have spent weeks inside the Beatport top 10, in addition to signature remixes of global hits such as Robin Thicke’s ‘Blurred Lines’ and The Chainsmokers’ ‘Selfie.’ Since his genre-defining track, ‘Ah Yeah!’ hit #3 on the Beatport overall charts at the tail end of 2012, Will Sparks has become unstoppable, hit after hit. Producing original tracks like ‘Catch,’ ‘When The Lights Go Out’ and ‘This Is What The Bounce Is,’ he garnered the attention of global heavyweight dance label Ultra Records. In the past 2 years alone, he has seen more achievements than most artists see in an entire lifetime.
Born and raised in Melbourne, Australia, the prodigal son of Melbourne’s underground dance music has come to earn widespread praise and an impressive reputation for his work in the music industry as DJ and producer alike. From beginning to DJ at the age of 14, achieving his first club residency by the age of 16, to being voted #34 in the inthemix Australia Top 50 awards in 2011, #19 in 2012 and holding strong at #19 again in 2013, Joel Fletcher‘s rise to the top has been quick and occurred early. Following the recent success of ‘Bring It Back’, a collaboration with Will Sparks that has just reached platinum sales, Joel Fletcher is at it again with his chart topping remix of Savage’s ‘Swing’ – a tune that has been added to the airwaves of every major radio network around the country and has been supported by some of the worlds biggest DJ’s.

As Scotland’s original superclub, the Arches is the stuff of clubbing legend. There really is no other venue like it in the world.
Repeatedly voted one of the top 100 clubs in the world in DJ magazine, the industrial brick arches are home to a continuous roster of the world’s most in demand DJs and producers from across the dance spectrum, whether it be minimal techno, big bassline electro, hardstyle, deep house, UK bass, dubstep or trance.
With a Funktion 1 soundsystem and three fully stocked bars spread over six subterranean arches, the space is transformed each weekend depending on the faces behind the decks. From huge, sell out nights with platinum selling Ibiza trendsetters such as Alesso and Laidback Luke or legendary acts such as Fatboy Slim, Carl Cox and Jeff Mills, to the hottest, most-hyped names on the dance scene’s lips – from Jamie Jones and Nina Kraviz to Jackmaster and Omar S, ours is one of the most diverse club programmes in the city.
As well as the Arches’ own club nights, which have recently brought the likes of Hot Creations label, Madeon and Chase & Status to the venue, for many fans the Arches is synonymous with either of its two biggest nights, Pressure and Colours.
Slam have now been playing and promoting in the Arches since 1992 with their monthly techno and house night Pressure celebrating it’s 16th anniversary in November 2014. Normally taking place on the last Friday of the month, Pressure sees the biggest names in the game playing regularly, with guests like Richie Hawtin, Ben Klock, Laurent Garnier, Joris Voorn, Maya Jane Coles, Pan-Pot, Chris Liebing, Dave Clarke, Len Faki, Dubfire, Gary Beck, Visonquest, Heidi, Vitalic and Green Velvet joining resident DJs Slam in recent times.
Scotland’s biggest dance promoter, Colours regularly bring the biggest and best names in big room house, tech-house, electro and trance to the venue, with recent guests including Alesso, Otto Knows, Laidback Luke, Dannic, Hardwell, Markus Schulz, Showtek, Gareth Emery, Nervo, AN21 & Max Vangeli, Nicky Romero and many more.
