Mura Masa, All Around the World
As a young man in his early teens, Crossan started playing instruments such as guitar, bass and drums. He also started singing in local punk, hardcore and gospel bands. He started self-producing and streaming his music at age 15. Like many modern artists, Crossan learned how to make electronic music through Ableton Live at age 16. The following year at age 17, Crossan changed his name to Mura Masa and began uploading his music to SoundCloud. Mura Masa is a genre-defying artist combining elements of pop, electronic, funk, hip-hop and dubstep into his chart-topping singles. Mura Masa has described his cross-genre sound as a result of the "geographical isolation" of his upbringing on the small island of Guernsey, located off of the coasts of Normandy. He does not consider himself a pop artist, although he is fascinated by pop music and has specifically collaborated with pop artists like Charli XCX so he can "meet halfway" in infusing his unique sound with pop elements. After posting his debut mixtape, Soundtrack to a Death, on Soundcloud, it was picked up and released by Jakarta Records in 2014. Mura Masa followed with his debut EP, Someday Somewhere, the following year. He gained significant recognition after he released his first full-length debut album, Mura Masa, with a host of collaborators.
