Walker Buxton Records


Walker's talent breathes its way through his musical output. "Music is always evolving, nothing stands still....And that’s exactly how I like it".

Walker (Aust) creates music that shapes dance floors and tastes. His artistic perspective comes from a life thoroughly lived, and his talent comes from an obsession in finding a way to express it. It’s the reason his music feels so personal and authentically deep. But then, nothing about Chris is 'paint by numbers'.

Considered a unique fixture on the Gold Coast scene, he can take credit for pioneering the current shape of the local underground. When asked why he feels compelled to manage events, build the scene’s infrastructure and nurturing new talent, Walker is of the view that “A rising tide lifts all boats”.


BRCKS (pronounced 'Bricks') is a bass music and hip hop DJ / Producer from the Gold Coast, he currently has a residency on Thursday nights at The Cambus Wallace, and recently launched his debut self titled EP live at Elsewhere Bar.
