October 28th, 2022 — Following his chart-topping single “Flip Reset” with Kaskade and this year’s “I Don’t Really Care” with Neville, Australian house producer WILL K returned to Monstercat today, joining forces with Dutch electronic group Drove for the evocative single “Ghost.” The addictive groove, hypnotizing pads, and dreamy bassline are sonically reminiscent of fellow Aussie tastemakers like Cassian and Rüfüs Du Sol, yet distinctively driven by WILL’s eccentric artistry. Aptly titled just ahead of Halloween, the velvety vocals and dark chords make for a haunting heartbreak anthem.
WILL K shares, “Drove and I knew we had to make a record together as a lot of our fans kept tagging us together on social posts! After sending a few ideas back and forth, I came across the vocal of “Ghost” and knew it was something special, and I wanted to bring a Rüfüs Du Sol-inspired/moody vibe with the production.”
Drove adds, “The song itself is about coping with having to let go of someone after a breakup. Lyrically we tried to describe situations in which you realise the most of what you’re missing in your life. That someone you were so close to now feels like a stranger to you.”
For nearly a decade, WILL K has been climbing the electronic circuit with dominating dancefloor hits, including his recent track “OoooH” with CID, which went to #2 on Beatport and saw support from Steve Aoki, Alesso, Nicky Romero, and many more. After headline tours in Australia and Asia, he’s performed across the world’s biggest festival stages including Tomorrowland, Creamfields, and Parookaville. As he continues to take his project to new heights, expect more genre-pushing from WILL K in the months to come.

While driving, music hits different. This laid the foundation for the Drove Movement. With their music, Drove captures a journey through beautiful places, while driving to their desired destination. In short, the project is all about the combination of classic cars, scenic routes, thematic music and the vibe that comes along with it. Drove might be one of the freshest faces to have their releases appear on STMPD RCRDS, but they’re already beginning to turn heads in the scene. Drove arrived in style in January of 2021 with their debut EP ‘Dusk,’ which was created during the lockdown in 2020.
