Sparkee had this to say, “I saw that Label Radar was hosting a remix contest for The Business by Tiesto and I really wanted to put my spin on it. I already loved the original track but it was also a huge opportunity. I went with a bit of a retro vibe and added my funky guitar style to it which seemed to work out pretty well because I was selected as the winner out of 3500+ submissions! In addition to being released on Atlantic Records, I won a slew of prizes that I'm absolutely stoked about. This is literally a dream come true!”
