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.

Mind Over Matter have just released their new album This Way To Elsewhere and are headed on tour across Australia. I will be supporting the boys for the Melbourne leg of this tour, I must say this new album This Way To Elsewhere is absolutely stunning.
With well rounded production, from some very established producers from the U.S and OZ. I love hearing new music like this coming out of the Australian Hip Hop scene. From beginning to end, this album has been on repeat all week over here.
If you would like to check out the new clip featuring Hip Hop heavy weights Bliss n Eso click here.
You can also purchase their album This Way To Elsewhere here.
I will be supporting Mind Over Matter Laundry Bar in Melbourne on the 11th of July. Tix are just $10, I’m sure this show will sell out. So if you are keen on getting down follow this link to purchase your tickets online. I will have merch at the show.
With the release of their new album This Way To elsewhere, Mind Over Matter have smashed their way into the charts with their album debuting at #6 on iTunes and #61 on the ARIA charts. The good people at I Forget Sorry & Big Tree Artists have put together a national tour and I am proud to announce that I will be supporting MOM for the Melbourne leg of this tour along with artist Tys on the 11th of July.
After the success of powerful new single What They Say, featuring guest verses from hip-hop heavyweights and touring buddies Bliss N Eso, Sydney duo Mind Over Matter are primed to deliver their highly anticipated third LP This Way To Elsewhere – out May 30 via Permanent/Shock Records (pre-order from iTunes or JB Hi-Fi)
and will be hitting the road this June/July.
Mind Over Matter (MCs Willow and Smiles Again) have gone from strength to strength since the 2006 release of their debut mixtape For Our Hip Hoppers. Their rapid musical growth can be heard on the world-class production of This Way To Elsewhere. Pre-production on the album took place over a two week period with producer Matik (Seth Sentry, Pez, Bliss N Eso) and multi-instrumentalist Jon Reichardt at a holiday house in the beautiful Salamander Bay. The remainder of the album was recorded at Smiles Again’s Sydney studio The Swordfish Tank.
Once the record was complete, the band headed to Chicago for an intensive mixing process with Craig Bauer (Lupe Fiasco, Kanye West). “When we set out to make this album we wanted the most universal sound we could achieve. We’re stoked with what we cooked up,” says Smiles Again of the record.
Mind Over Matter also will be hitting the road nationally throughout June/July to bring their highly evolved sound to you live, and show the world why they’re a force to be reckoned with.

We have released a new film clip for Halloween! I hope you guys enjoy this, its my favorite song from the album “Painted Landscape” This is the 3rd clip from the series, there is still 12 songs to go but we are getting there!

Album out now on:
This Christmas I will be releasing my EP “Earth, Air, Fire, Water”. Although this EP contains only 5 tracks, there is a running time of 25 minutes. I wanted to make this release more of a film score based around the elements rather than focusing on Hip Hop. Its always hard at Christmas time to afford presents for everyone, so I thought why not put this one up as a free download!
I will be printing limited copies of this EP (50) but I will not be re pressing any after that. If you would like a hard copy please feel free to get in contact with me, they will be $10 each. I have had a lot of people asking me lately why I am putting up new releases so close together and the simple answer is; I need to get this off my chest. Projects become stale for me when left too long and I have so much work to do with recording other artists and running a record label, that I just wanted to get this out, after that I can move on to whatever comes next. Now in my 30’s I feel that it is more important than ever to express how I feel about what is really going on around me than it is to entertain others. I really do hope I continue to keep making music for my whole life. Keep your mind fresh by feeding your spirit.
I will have updates on this EP coming up. So stay tuned. Earth, Air, Fire, Water will be available for free download via Bandcamp. Click photo for link.
This is my second full length album and my first solo project. All music and vocals were recorded at Wordsmiths Records.
So I asked all our fans to send in photo’s of themselves which we then turned into a mosaic.
The name “Painted Landscape” is a reference to our cultural diversity within Australia, that we all make up the landscape we live in. I then decided to hit up fans to choose a color out of 15 choices. the 15 colors represent the 15 songs on the album which we are still shooting clips for. 15 clips, 15 colors chosen by fans which represent their choice. I wanted to involve people as much as possible in this. So far we have released 2 film clips and are currently shooting the next one. I hope you enjoy this album, I love it!

This album features work from my long standing drummer Casey Morrison. We successfully launched and released this album in September last year. I was pretty angry about the world, how things are, how many people don’t care about what is going on around them. So we put this whole psychological mess together and put it in an album. There is some very dark stuff on here but also uplifting moments that really reflect who me and Casey are as people and music lovers. I did most of the mixing on this album before sending it off for mastering, what a nightmare, I vowed after this album to leave all the mixing and mastering to someone else. This album is available on iTunes, Spotify and many other online stores. Click the photo for a free streaming link to the album
