As the Australian music scene continues to grow, flourish and take the international music community by storm, leading publicity house Get In! today announces the addition of yet another Antipodean superstar to its roster in the form of 22-year-old Joel Fletcher.
Joel, who recently confirmed through Facebook and Twitter the news that his latest single 'Swing' has reached the Triple Platinum Sales milestone in his home country, has alongside close friend Will Sparks been responsible for the surging 'Melbourne Bounce' movement currently sweeping up from the Southern Hemisphere towards European and North American territories.
For those unfamiliar with Melbourne Bounce, the genre is a new take on progressive-electro house and is packed to the rafters with huge bass lines, bottom heavy filters and rampant, hard-hitting rhythm sections that attract brimming dance floors. Increasingly championed by top flight DJs and producers including TJR, Deorro and Dutch impresario Laidback Luke, the sound is well on its way to becoming a global force and Joel is unmistakably leading the worldwide charge.
Already a luminary in Australia - before 'Swing', his collaboration with Will Sparks 'Bring It Back' hit Double Platinum figures - Joel Fletcher is now ready to take on the rest of the planet with his distinctive signature sound. With major news coming in the next few weeks surrounding the international release of 'Swing' and his upcoming debut North American tour, clubs and festivals across the planet should ready themselves for a major international superstar in the making.
