‘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.”

BASTIAN BUCKS ‘GET HEAVY’ MUSIC VIDEO/ SINGLE
‘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

Hip Hop artist Bastian Killjoy has set upon a new journey this year with the announcement of his 4th full length album release ‘Golly Gosh’, due for arrival on July 21st 2016.
The rapturous Melbourne based producer/ emcee has modelled his latest works around his earliest Hip Hop, Rap and R&B influences, many being from the early 90’s. With production styles that recognise artists of the 70’s and 80’s, in a time when musician’s recorded/ produced and mixed their albums, utilising their own skills. Which is precisely what Bastian has done with his latest masterpiece ‘Golly Gosh’ entirely produced by himself.
“I have produced all my other albums, to an extent, but have always got to a point where I have needed help from others to complete the project. This time around I have placed a lot of importance on the album belonging to me, I believe it is my most lyrical and personal work to date. After many painstaking months of hard work, I think it’s paid off”. – B. K
From the inspiration of intrigue and true artistry, come the untold workings of Hip Hop enthusiast and architect, Bastian Killjoy.
Album available through – Bandcamp, iTunes and all other reputable outlets
July 21st 2016.
