Who: Mura Masa
What: Panorama festival
Where: Randall’s Island Park
When: Sunday, July 30, the Pavilion, $125, 5:35
Why: World musical influences sampled from the internet + a teen in a bedroom: Electronic producer and songwriter Mura Masa (Alex Crossan) has pretty much perfected that mix. Though the isle-of-Guernsey–born twenty-one-year-old describes himself as “more of a ‘stay at home in my room and eat cereal’ kind of guy,” he’s touring worldwide after his singles, many released on the innovative Majestic Casual channel as well as on SoundCloud, have become #1 viral hits on Spotify; his “Love$ick” feat. A$ap Rocky has been viewed more than 30 million times on YouTube. He’ll be at Panorama on Sunday, just about two weeks after the release of his self-titled debut album, but he’s got a deep store of cuts going back to 2014, including “Lotus Eater” and “Firefly” feat. Nao, as well as the previously released “1 Night” with Charli XCX, “All Around the World” feat. Desiigner, and “What If I Go?,” which also appear on the new album and are bound to keep the crowd moving at the Pavilion at 5:35. This down-to-earth and immensely talented twentysomething is definitely someone we want to keep on our radar. The full Sunday Panorama schedule is below.
