Will K & Gianluca Vacchi

Axtone producer Will K calls out Italian star Gianluca Vacchi for ripping off his track

It’s happened many times before, an artist puts out a record and then weeks or months down the line another record pops up and something just isn’t right, could it be that maybe there is too much similarity for comfort? Australian DJ/Producer WILL K stepped into the limelight in the past few years for show-stopping progressive and groove house bangers, the DJ maintains both class and is a genuine guy on and off the decks. On February 3rd the DJ reached out on twitter and exclaimed “Congrats on the residency but don’t copy other people’s work and pass it off as yours “, then posted the link to the song.

The track in question doesn’t come from a familiar name in the business but it surely comes from a familiar label. “Trump-It” by Gianluca Vacchi was released on Spinnin’ Records February 2nd. Also coming with the release, the entrepreneur/lifestyle guru/Instagram star announced a residency at Amnesia in Ibiza for this upcoming summer. Granted, it is not farfetched to realize the track was “ghost produced”, meaning Gianluca Vacchi did not produce the track through his own means however is fully represented and given the titles to it. It has been rumoured that fellow Italian DJ/Producers Merk & Kremont were behind the record, featuring bouncy electro lead lines, “in-your-face” drums and an all too familiar drop. For all intents and purposes, the songs drop could bear resemblance to the drop engineered by WILL K on his Axtone Records release “Sour Milk”. Even if the general populace finds no resemblance, the Australian producer certainly does. Sometimes, these kinds of sticky situations are inadvertent and just unfold naturally, however it might be left to the producers of “Trump-It” to declare whether or not they borrowed off of “Sour Milk”.

Fans of WILL K left their support for the artist and his track, replying in the comments to state how they “hate when producers do that”, or “I honestly thought you made the track”.
