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

‘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.


EXPRESSIONS OF FREEDOM – HOP HOP AGAINST DOMESTIC VIOLENCE

10928857_904099016296823_4334155153534405605_nI am proud to be a part of this great event, which is happening tomorrow night at The Reverence Hotel in Footscray! This event will feature some of the most talented local artists around, all while raising much needed funds and attention for a good cause- White Ribbon.

Intimate partner violence is the most common type of violence against women, affecting 30 per cent of women worldwide, according to the 2013 World Health Organization report

Over 12 months, on average, one woman is killed every week as a result of intimate partner violence.

A woman is most likely to be killed by her male partner in her home.

Domestic and family violence is the principle cause of homelessness for women and their children.

Intimate partner violence is the leading contributor to death, disability and ill-health in Australian women aged 15-44.

One in three women have experienced physical and/or sexual violence perpetrated by someone known to them.

One in four children are exposed to domestic violence, which is a recognised form of child abuse.

The cost of violence against women to the Australian economy is estimated to rise to $15.6 billion per annum.

One in five women experience harassment within the workplace.

One in five women over 18 has been stalked during her lifetime.

Exceptionally talented artists, a great night of hip hop and a very important cause should be all the reason you need to come along.
