I am a huge fan of Mura Masa, the 18 year old beat maker with an uncanny ability for transforming pop music into imaginative new forms. This low-key, ambient electronic remake of Ed Sheeran’s pop hit is simply stunning. Sparse and laid back, Mura Masa’s touch is faint enough that Sheeran’s original creation is recognisable whilst creating an engrossing fresh sound.
Mura Masa, only 18 (at the time of writing) has garnered attention from Jakarta records, BBC Radio 1’s Annie Mac and Rinse FM; clearly his music is being well received. I am truly looking forward to hearing what the near future holds for the genre spanning talent. Check out more of Mura Masa music here.
