BASTIAN KILLJOY’S ‘CREEP’ OUT NOW


As the production of my album ‘Golly Gosh’ winds up, and I come to the surface to take a breath. I have come to the realisation that I haven’t shared any new music with you this year. As you may have seen last week, I shared an album teaser trailer (Watch here). Now I am proud to share with you my debut single from this release ‘Creep’!

‘Creep’ serves as a footnote to the rest of ‘Golly Gosh’. As an illustration of how the creative process of making music has been rapidly changing for me, examining my place in the music industry, how I see things happening around me. And how money has a tendency to change people in the Hip Hop game.

This song delivers as an ode & reminder to thank and pay homage to those who have come before us. In particular I have made reference to a couple of my greatest inspirations  Ms Lauren Hill & TLC. Its not often I site other artists in my works, but this time I felt it was relevant.

I am eagerly waiting an album release date for ‘Golly Gosh’ but for now here’s something to warm your appetite.‘Creep’ is now available for download/ streaming via

Album will be available through – Rising Tide Records, Bandcamp, iTunes and all other reputable outlets. Album release date TBA 2016.

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/ DJ RELLIK ANNOUNCED TO SUPPORT BROTHER ALI IN MELBOURNE THIS SEPTEMBER!

11885001_982236495132015_6415254353723007668_oI am proud to announce that I will be supporting Brother Ali for the Melbourne stint of his Australian tour this September! I am also pleased to announce that old friend/ DMC finalist DJ Rellik will be joining me on the decks for our set!

Controversial Minneapolis MC and community activist Brother Ali has announced a run of select exclusive shows including Melbourne @ Laundry Bar.

Never one to shy away from the world’s problems, Ali has won the hearts and minds of hip hop fans world wide with his intimate song writing, captivating live performances and outspoken stance on issues of justice and human dignity.

His extensive resume includes six critically acclaimed albums, mentorships with iconic hip hop legends Chuck D and Rakim as well as performances on late night talk shows Conan O Brien and Jimmy Fallon.

He’s been the subject of Al-Jazeera and NPR pieces and was a keynote speaker at this year’s Nobel Peace Prize Forum. He’s landed coveted press features such as Rolling Stone’s 40th anniversary “Artist to Watch” and Source Magazine’s “Hip Hop Quotables.”

Brother Ali’s latest album release ‘Mourning in America and Dreaming in Color’ is a politically charged album which aims to reawaken people at this time.

“This is not just a new album, but a new chapter. There’s a kind of democratic reawakening in people at this point in time. I was really looking to take these topics and really hit them hard. To try to open ears and hearts and invite people to take some action and feel empowered. To be engaged and take some agency and responsibility for what’s going on in the world.” Brother Ali.

More recently he dropped ‘Left in the Deck’ which is a collection of raw, grimy recordings made in basements and hotel rooms around the world produced entirely by Jake One.

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
