i first became aware of the BRITISH producer MURA MASA a few years back when i was living in JAPAN. i came across his highly INFECTIOUS yet decidedly MINIMALIST instrumental for the "1 NIGHT" track he produced as a collaboration with ENGLISH singer-songwriter CHARLI XCX. the spare, SKELETAL production on that song was EVOCATIVE and ever so slightly MELANCHOLIC and definitely made me seek out his work moving forward, including his two STELLAR albums MURA MASA (POLYDOR, 2017) and R.Y.C. (POLYDOR, 2020).
dude is beyond CUTTING-EDGE and effectively GENRE-LESS. can't wait to see what he cooks up next. MURA MASA is definitely worth checking out.
