Hip Hop producer/ emcee Bastian Bucks reaches out from the underground this June with the announcement of his new single ‘Revenge’ and subsequent album release on the horizon for 2017. The independent artist, hailing from Melbourne, is ready to deliver on what looks to be a new dawn of progression in Australian Hip Hop.
Stepping away from the traditional styling’s and success of his Australian counterparts, Bastian Bucks pushes the boundaries of creativity to no end. Leaving a crack in the foundation of what is considered to be popular music. Turning pre conceptions of the Hip Hop specific genre on their head, Bastian Bucks embodies a new era in Australian music.
Album release date TBA
Last week saw the arrival of my latest album ‘Golly Gosh’. Which is now available on all reputable digital outlets. I have taken this album back to my early roots and just wanted to make something in the moment, without over analysing anything too much. And after spending a few months of producing/ writing/ mixing/ mastering the album, this is what I came up with.
I honestly think this is just one of those one off things. Something I won’t try to replicate or dissect. It is now my favourite album and reflects me completely. I’m sure my outlook will continue to change, as it always has. But I will forever very proud to give this to you.
‘Golly Gosh’ is available via iTunes, Google Play, Spotify and many other digital platforms. Physical copies are available via my Bandcamp
Well here it is people!
Feels good to share this with the world. I thank you for your patience, and persistence in supporting me for all this time. After months of work we have finally reached the release! And thankfully everything worked out. Now I may not be able to explain myself or my thoughts very well in real life but I think I just hit a note with this album.
And we also got an awesome review from the folks over at HipHop.Melbourne which you check out HERE. For CD purchases follow the bandcamp link. For digital downloads/ streaming head to your preferred online store from the list below. CD’s are going quick but I am in the process of ordering more.

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.

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.
