Bastian Bux strides into 2024 with an impressive three-tracker on Jamie Jones’ Hottrax.

Bastian Bux was hugely busy in 2023 with standout cuts on his own Neverendz label, having already impressed on Eats Everything’s Edible, elrow Music and Cuartero’s Sanity. He hails from Barcelona and has shown himself to be endlessly creative in the studio – each new tune shows an evolution in his sound, whether vocal, deep, tech or beyond. Now, almost a decade into his career, he has played everywhere from Tomorrowland to Encore Beach Club in Las Vegas, and he now opens the year with a superb three-track EP on Hottrax.

The punchy ‘Dunns’ kicks off with tight, clipped tech house drums and chopped-up vocal stabs that eventually turn into streetwise bars drenched in attitude. ‘Dat Beat’ is just as fresh and sure to get crowds in a swat with its hardcore house grooves and twisted synths spraying about the mix. Throw in more well-treated vocal fragments and a fat bassline, and you have real club dynamite. Completing this essential hat trick is ‘Howyalldoin’, a more playful cut with a sun-kissed vibe thanks to its soulful male vocals and funky bass riffs.

Bastian Bux ‘Dunns’ EP drops via Hottrax on 16th February 2024.
