‘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.

JAVAARAY – PEOPLE FALL AROUND feat BASTIAN KILLJOY OUT NOW!


Well it seems I have been sharing a heap of music with you guys lately, with the release of my new single “Foreword”  & my collaboration “Road To Nothing” with famed Iranian artist Salome Mc. Now we move closer to home, I have been recently working with Melbourne Producer Jaavaray on one of his new beats. I wanted to do something different with this collaboration. I thought this would be a great break from working on my next album, which it was. I have been working with a lot of Electronic sounds lately so to be able to jump on an organic instrumental was just what I needed. This is one of many collaborations Jaavaray is working on right now and is out now, for FREE download Via Soundcloud. If you would like to stay up to date on new releases, you can join my mailing list HERE. More details on my album soon! -BAS

This results in a sound that is truly unique within the Australian Hip Hop scene.

Salome Mc started making hip-hop music as an art school freshman in 2002, in Tehran. Pursuing her passion for poetry, music and visual arts in different levels ever since, releasing songs online -while being recognised as the first female rapper of Iran- and experimenting with different mediums of visual expression that goes along.

Salome moved to Japan to further study in the field of audio/visual arts, exploring new ways of expression that would reflect her new life style: away from urban life and closer to nature. Now in addition to making music for urban listener, Salome tries to create a connection incorporating sound, photo and/or video in form of contemporary art with a universal audience.

 

 


FREE EP – “Earth – Air – Fire – Water”

FREE EPSo over the last few months, as we have been flying towards Christmas and the new year, I realized I would not have much money to buy loved one’s presents. So instead of stressing myself out, I decided to release a new EP “Earth – Air – Fire – Water” as a FREE download.

So I got a few copies printed up for close friends and my family and put the release up for you guys to grab. I don’t have much but this is what I offer.

If you are reading this thank you for all your support and love, it really keeps me going. Now about this EP, I wrote this originally as a film score composition and then decided to write lyrics to the songs. The names of the songs represent the elements of earth as a whole.

This is a time of spiritual awakening, we are united, we seek for peace. Be happy today, even if it is a day of reflection. Be safe and happy and know we are together. I am not religious, well not in the traditional sense but I think if we can put one day aside in the year to share and be completely selfless, then that’s a start in the right direction. I look forward to the journey that next year brings for both you and I.
