As a big thank you to all of you who supported my Pozible campaign earlier in the year, Bass Estrada and I have released a new EP for FREE! I wanted to give something back to you guys for making my last album possible. So It is that we present to you ‘The You & Me EP’
Beyond the great divides of sea and continents, emerges an archaic collaboration of epic measures. As Australian artist Bastian Killjoy and Russian Hip Hop producer Bass Estrada announce the release of their EP ‘The You & Me EP’ which arrived on Thursday the 18th.
It’s no secret that rising Melbourne emcee, Bastian Killjoy has been making waves with his insightful, mind-bending lyricism. We now see Bastian ordained to explore uncharted terrain, with Bass Estrada’s mood shifting, ambient sound scapes, challenging Bastian’s lyrical ability every step of the way. As the pair unite to bring to the world their notable and visionary masterpiece ‘The You & Me EP’.
Throughout this journey of elaborate arrangements, and perfectly balanced sounds, it is evident that the duo jells flawlessly. Performing a balancing act of polyphonic unification that is rarely seen in today’s world of Hip Hop.
‘The You & Me EP’ is now available for free digital download via Bandcamp.
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
