Mura Masa

Known by his stage name of Mura Masa, electronic producer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist Alex Crossan hails from the Channel Island of Guernsey located between England and France. A lifelong musician, Crossan began experimenting with beats and electronic production at the age of 15 and just two years later, his track "Lotus Eater" was picked up by a number of different BBC 1 DJs, effectively launching his career. His 2014 Soundtrack to a Death mixtape was released by German indie Jakarta Records and the following year, Crossan signed a distribution deal with Polydor in order to release his debut EP, Someday Somewhere. Released on his own imprint, Anchor Point Records, the EP featured vocal contributions from U.K. singers Nao, Denai Moore, and Jay Prince. His single "Lovesick" climbed to number one on Spotify's viral charts and he followed up in late 2015 with "Love for That," a new single featuring Manchester singer Shura.
