On Friday, eclectic, electronic pop musician Parker – otherwise known as Jake Sgarlato – released his Spark EP. From the first notes of “Home” ft. Oh Boy, through the bass drops in recent single “Shy”, all the way through the last lines of final track “Afterglow” ft. Bianca, there is an energy to this EP that makes you want to dance, no matter the environment you’re currently in. Sincerely, as hard as the tracks hit at points, there’s a smoothness to the way they were produced that makes this a multi-faceted – and beautiful – musical endeavor.

Hard advice: Add any number of these five to your current party playlist.

Parker dropped his EP amidst a heavy tour schedule, and we can only imagine what the coming weeks have in store for him.

Spark is available now. Keep up with Parker here.
