This evening I’d like to share a track by the young artist mura masa, whom I have been keeping a very close eye on after hearing his fascinating, and innovative, sound. This producer is just 18 years old, but his blending of minimalist garage, eastern asian instruments, UK trap, and of course lots of bass, is simply captivating. He is wicked talented, having released around 30 tracks so far, each with a different feel.
Now, teaming up with up-and-coming Portland producer Yung Bae, he is showcasing his abilities to make groovy, soulful beats. I Bought My Girlfriend Omega Ruby For 3DS And She Called Me An Otaku, (a Pokémon reference foe those who lost touch with their childhood) takes one on a happy ride, featuring wrapped vocal samples, some flute-like synthesizing, and straight looooving.
