You know his name and you know his sound. Ministry of Sound are psyched to announce the nomination of Joel Fletcher’s ARIA nomination for his hit 'Swing'! This head-bopping, foot-stomping, club-banging tune has been nominated for Best Song Of The Year 2014 against the likes of Sia, Guy Sebastian, Iggy Azaelia and 5SOS.
After the huge success of his breakthrough top 30 airplay hit 'Bring It Back' with Will Sparks, Melbourne DJ and producer Joel Fletcher returned with the booty-shakin 'Swing', featuring New Zealand hip hop heavyweight Savage.
Sampling Savage’s hit of the same name, Joel has re-worked it into his signature Melbourne sound that’s taking over clubs around the world and the airwaves of Australia. 'Swing' has proven a worthy follow up to the Gold selling 'Bring It Back'.
The young 21 year old has snowballed his way from local Melbourne clubs to touring internationally in the company of huge DJs such as Deorro, Avicii andWill Sparks. Joel’s talent for creating his own signature sound that every body can dance to truly deserves this nomination and we’d like to say a big congratulations. With less than seven weeks until the 2014 ARIA Awards, the winners will be announced at The Star, Sydney on Wednesday, November 26, 2014.
