NEW TUNES FOR SUMMER!

Did I hear new music?? Thats right! Just hours ago my latest music video for my latest single The Voynich Manus went live on Youtube! + streaming/ downloading here
I am really happy to be able to share this song & accompanying video with you. It feels like more than a year ago since I released my albumSides Of Me, with your help, but it has only been 10 months since then. A lot has changed and evolved with my music and the creative process during this time. I’m not sure where I am heading, but it is certainly away from where I was before and that means growth.

‘The Voynich Manus’ is really an interpretive piece on today, 2015. the things happening around us, our reactions, your reaction. How we see the world and how the world might see us back, on a level we often undermine and neglect, on a mindful level. What do we really know about who we are in proportion to the whole/ and that is why I called this song The Voynich Manus(cript). I hope people will find understanding in my intentions and put meaning to my madness. If not, the tune is pretty fly.

You can stream or download ‘The Voynich Manus’ for free HERE. I will have more details on my forthcoming album as we head over to the new year. Wishing you all a very happy and safe holiday season!

BASTIAN KILLJOY’S NEW MUSIC VIDEO ‘MICK’

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EPNATCOhiSs Hey all! If you are reading this you are probably watching our new music video! Mick has taken Bron and myself months to put together and was by far the most involved project we have worked on together to date. Bron’s work on this clip is beyond words, we had no financial or label support creating this video but here we are! and so far the video seems to be a hit. Director/ visual artist Bron Flutterby has once again joined forces with musician Bastian Killjoy to produce his latest film clip MickTaken from Bastian’s latest full length album  Sides Of Me, which is out now. Featuring an array of breathtaking visuals and stunning cinematography, Mick is an odyssey through the astral plain, as we are guided to the far side of space and invited inside the prismatic imaginations of Bastian Killjoy and Bron Flutterby. With Mick’s transient clarity having a similar texture to a film shot in mid 1980’s, it would appear that Mick has always existed in the back recesses of our cognitive minds. Mick was written for a fan named Mick during Bastian’s Pozible campaign in 2014, which saw the production of the album Sides Of Me on vinyl, and is the second film clip taken from the album. With the single Tie Me To This being the first released in November of 2014. The single Mick is currently available for free download via TripleJ Unearthed We hope you guys enjoy all the hard work we have put into this! I would like to thank Tim Hanson for all his hard work on helping me finish this album. It has certainly paid off. I want to thank Bron Flutterby for her countless hours of shooting/ editing the video and last but not least I would like to thank all of you for your support during my Pozible campaign. We wouldn’t be able to make this happen without you! BAS

BASTIAN KILLJOY X BASS ESTRADA’S ‘THE YOU & ME EP’ OUT NOW!

As a big thank you to all of you who supported my Pozible campaign earlier in the year, Bass Estrada and I have released a new EP for FREE! I wanted to give something back to you guys for making my last album possible. So It is that we present to you ‘The You & Me EP’

Beyond the great divides of sea and continents, emerges an archaic collaboration of epic measures. As Australian artist Bastian Killjoy and Russian Hip Hop producer Bass Estrada announce the release of their EP The You & Me EP’ which arrived on Thursday the 18th.

It’s no secret that rising Melbourne emcee, Bastian Killjoy has been making waves with his insightful, mind-bending lyricism. We now see Bastian ordained to explore uncharted terrain, with Bass Estrada’s mood shifting, ambient sound scapes, challenging Bastian’s lyrical ability every step of the way. As the pair unite to bring to the world their notable and visionary masterpiece The You & Me EP.

Throughout this journey of elaborate arrangements, and perfectly balanced sounds, it is evident that the duo jells flawlessly. Performing a balancing act of polyphonic unification that is rarely seen in today’s world of Hip Hop.

‘The You & Me EP’ is now available for free digital download via Bandcamp.


‘WELL PLAYED’ NEW SINGLE FROM BASTIAN KILLJOY X BASS ESTRADA

Bastian has released a new single with St Petersburg based producer Bass Estrada. ‘Well Played’ is the second collaborative single release from the 2 artists and is available for exclusive free download via Soundcloud. With the release of Bastian’s new album ‘Sides Of Me’ a couple of months ago Bastian has been branching out and looking at new collaborative projects to work on.

I have been looking for something different to work on and this just fell right in front of me. There is a soothing and sometimes melancholy sound behind these tracks from Bass Estrada which just drew me to his work. While producing all of my own instrumental in the past, I thought I would expand and draw on different styles between albums. Both ‘Well Played’ and ‘Carry On’  have become some of my most diverse works and it is definitely something I am not complaining about. I have a feeling we will be releasing a lot more music together this year” – BAS

Bass Estrada X Bastian Killjoy have also released another single ‘Carry On’ last month, which is also available for free download via Soundcloud.


‘TIE ME TO THIS’ SINGLE/ MUSIC VIDEO OUT SOON!

Hey guys,

We have been working sweat and tears to bring you this single and accompanying film clip. ‘Tie Me To This’ is the 4th single release from my next album ‘Sides Of Me’ which is set for release late February of 2015. This will be the last single release until the album arrives next year. We (Flutterby Multimedia and I) have never done anything like this video before. We have taken all abstracts of reality and tuned them into a single headspace within it’s own theme. If that sounds crazy, well it is and it has been also very fun to make.

We are now in the final stages of editing and rendering out this video. So it will be finished very soon. All pledgers of my Pozible campaign will be receiving an exclusive download of the new single ‘Tie Me To This’ as well as an exclusive preview of the music video before it’s release. So if this is you keep checking your emails for something from me.

I am currently running a Pozible campaign to finish and release this album on both vinyl and CD format. I have been running this campaign for almost 6 weeks and with just over 2 weeks to go we have raised 75% of the total needed to complete ‘Sides Of Me’. This has been an exhaustive, inspiring and sometimes heart wrenching experience but one I am glad to be a part of. I have released 3 other singles from the album which are available for streaming and download HERE.

If you would like to hear more about my journey you can follow me HERE to my Pozible Campaign. For more direct monthly updates on my music/ shows and releases, you can join my mailing list HERE
