Bastian Bux is the consequence of reducing everything surrounding a DJ and producer to its essential element: the music. That is the intention of Bux: be stripped of all artifice and be judged by his work. Pieces full of deep textures, powerful harmonies, heavy beats and fat basslines; where everything is assembled with soul and sensibility, with the mastery of a craftsman and surgeon’s precision.
His debut came with his ‘Stay’ EP on Suara, where four timeless tracks laid the foundations of what Bastian Bux means today: deep and emotional Techno, dark House, and high class Electronica. Such was the success of the debut that, a few months later, he repeated on Coyu’s imprint with ‘Teardrop EP’, ‘Screenshot’, ‘Tresor’ and his recent ‘Oracle’ EP, where his stylistic range extends further, going from futuristic Deep House to Progressive Techno, was remixed by Suara label-boss Coyu. After taking his first step into remixing, reworking Habischmann’s ‘All I Dream’ for Dave Seaman’s Selador imprint, Bastian’s next outing will be on Nicole Moudaber’s esteemed label MOOD Records. In only a year, Bastian has seen his work supported by most of the underground’s heavyweights, and his profile has risen accordingly.
In front of a crowd, Bastian is able to travel elegantly from housy grooves to rough techno, going through epic melodies and sober beats, always loyal to his way of understanding music but without losing sight of the dancefloor. That ability has earned him the status as a new resident for elrow, one of the most important brands in Europe, based in Barcelona and Ibiza, and has seen him tour the globe. After his summer residency at Space Ibiza and having played in the UK, Germany, France and Dubai, the future looks bright for this new, up and coming techno wonder-kid.
