We catch Bastian Bux hot on the heels of his debut Miami Music Week gig for elrow and right as he readies for gigs at Chicago’s Spybar and New York City’s Wesbter Hall this coming weekend. Bastian is on a mini-US tour alongside Coyu, the boss of the imprint that he calls home. Bastian’s production 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 more recent Oracle EP, where his stylistic range extended further, going from futuristic deep house to progressive techno. After taking his first step into remixing, reworking Habischmann’s “All I Dream” for Dave Seaman’s Selador imprint, Bastian’s next outing came Nicole Moudaber’s esteemed label MOOD Records.
In front of a crowd, Bastian is able to travel elegantly from housey 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 dance floor. 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 wonder-kid.
