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 was 2015’s “Stay EP” in 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 in Coyu’s imprint with “Teardrop EP”, “Screenshot”, “Tresor” or his recent “Oracle EP”, where his stylistic range extends further its own, going from futuristic Deep House to Progressive Techno. After a first step into the remix production with his Habischmann’s “All I Dream” re-interpretation and being remixed by Coyu himself, he released his first EP on Nicole Moudaber’s imprint Mood Records. In just one year, his work have been supported by most of the underground’s heavyweights and his profile is gaining a remarkable place in the scene.
In front of a crowd, Bastian is able to travel elegantly from housy grooves to rough techno, going thru 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 to be one of the ElRow residents and touring all around the globe. After his summer residency in Space Ibiza and having played in UK, Germany, France or Dubai, future looks bright for this new up and coming techno wonderkid.
We had the chance to chat with Bastian earlier this year when we talked about his relationship with elrow, Suara and his connection with the scene in the United States. This time we asked the prolific producer to share 5 key tips for you to apply in the studio!
