22 Feb Mura Masa at The Fillmore
Known by his stage name of Mura Masa, Alex Crossan is a Grammy-winning producer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist whose music encompasses a wide variety of pop, dance, and hip-hop styles. Since releasing his debut mixtape in 2014, he’s moved from producing remixes and instrumentals to working with a wide variety of vocalists, including A$AP Rocky (on the 2016 viral hit “Love$ick”) and Charli XCX, in addition to producing and co-writing songs for Ariana Grande, Stormzy, Chic, and many others. While his self-titled 2017 studio album demonstrates his eclectic range, the more guitar-driven 2020 follow-up R.Y.C. focuses on personal, introspective songwriting.
He started 2017 with “1 Night,” a collaborative single with Charli XCX, in advance of his debut album. Mura Masa’s eponymous full-length arrived in the summer of that year on Interscope Records. Alongside Rocky and XCX, the release also featured guest appearances from multi-instrumentalist Damon Albarn, French singer/songwriter Christine & the Queens, and American rapper Desiigner. Returning in 2018, Mura Masa offered up the collaborative single “Move Me” with London rapper Octavian. His remix of HAIM’s “Walking Away” won the award for Best Remixed Recording, Non-Classical at the 61st Annual Grammy Awards in 2019. The single “I Don’t Think I Can Do This Again” with Clairo arrived in August of that year, the first from Mura Masa’s sophomore album, R.Y.C. An abbreviation of Random Youth Collage, Crossan’s second LP took a conceptual approach to the subjects of youth and disillusionment and was released in January 2020.
