Mura Masa’s Brooke Fraser remix has become one of the songs of this year for me. Being a huge fan of music with swollen basslines, polyrhythmic drum loops and soulful vocals, I can’t fault it; the component parts are all without flaws. I adore the crackled vinyl texture on the string intro and the ethereal electronic effects on Brooke’s smooth voice that build into a crescendo before giving way to an engulfing bass part. In addition to this a complementary element, the choral bridge, beams joy directly to listeners.
Information on Mura Masa is scarce but check out his beats on Soundcloud.
I’ll definitely be paying close attention to the young Brit’s future work.
