Mura Masa’s debut LP is expected to see a 2017 release
A talented producer who fuses culture and style with live instrumentation and powerhouse synths, 20-year-old Alex Crossan has become one of the biggest breakout musical acts we have seen in recent years. With a Coachella appearance and a back-to-back European and US tours on his horizon, Mura Masa is set to reach much greater global recognition in 2017.
The rising producer, who has worked on hit collaborations with hip hop heavyweight A$AP Rocky and singer/songwriter Shura, announced in a recent interview with DIY Magazine that he is adding the final touches on a new studio album he’s named To Fall Out of Love To.
Crossan promises to continue what he started with Something Somewhere, his 2015 debut EP, which featured vocals from NAO and Jay Prince, and led him to his status as a pioneer in a brand new wave of contemporary dance music. “I think it comes out of an appreciation for live music,” Crossan explains in his DIY interview, regarding the influences for his unique sound. “I grew up playing in quite a few bands. I started from that point before I crossed over to the production side.”
To Fall Out of Love To is expected to be released later this year. Crossan says the album will be a continuation of his unique blend of Japanese culture, modern day hip-hop, and live instrumentation. As is the case with any Mura Masa release, we’re excited to see what’s to come with the LP.
