Bastian Bucks ‘ This Machine Kills Dreams’ Album/ Music Video Release 

‘This Machine Kills Dreams’ is the 6th studio album release, from Melbourne based producer/ rapper Bastian Bucks. The self-produced album underlines some of the independent artist’s finest works to date, and is out today.

Simultaneously, Bastian has released a music video for the single ‘Letters To God’. Shot in Florence, Italy in late 2017 ‘Letters To God’ is the final music video from this series.

“I finished mixing/ mastering ‘TMKD’ in June of 2017, but wanted to shoot some videos to coincide with the album, leading up its release. It was just coincidence that I wrote ‘Letters To God’ only to find myself in a holy city on the other side of the world months later.

It seemed like fate, so I took advantage of the opportunity and Florence ended up tying the songs theme together perfectly.”

‘This Machine Kills Dreams’ is available for streaming and download via Spotify, iTunes, Google Play and Bandcamp


Bastian Bucks – ‘Get Heavy’ Music Video


‘Get Heavy’ is the 2nd music video/ single release, from Melbourne based producer/ rapper Bastian Bucks’. Filmed in the forests of Berlin, Germany during a tour across Europe in late 2017. ‘Get Heavy’ is an extract from Bastian’s forthcoming album ‘This Machine Kills Dreams’, due for release in March 2018.

“ ‘Get Heavy’ serves as a commentary on my life, as an artist and as a person. The idea when writing the album has been to share my experiences with the audience, to give an understanding of just where I am coming from. I wanted to approach this concept with conviction, objectively.

Pop culture, cartoons, music, video games and film have all played a part in moulding how I present my art. ‘Get Heavy’ is reflective and in reference to this.”

– Bastian Bucks

‘Get Heavy’ is available for streaming and download via Spotify, iTunes and Google Play Album Pre orders are available via Bandcamp

Last week saw the arrival of my latest album ‘Golly Gosh’. Which is now available on all reputable digital outlets. I have taken this album back to my early roots and just wanted to make something in the moment, without over analysing anything too much. And after spending a few months of producing/ writing/ mixing/ mastering the album, this is what I came up with.

I honestly think this is just one of those one off things. Something I won’t try to replicate or dissect. It is now my favourite album and reflects me completely. I’m sure my outlook will continue to change, as it always has. But I will forever very proud to give this to you.

‘Golly Gosh’ is available via iTunes, Google Play, Spotify and many other digital platforms. Physical copies are available via my Bandcamp
