Just days before the release of R.Y.C., Mura Masa has shared another single supporting his upcoming album. With the help of vocalist Georgia, “Live Like We’re Dancing” continues Mura Masa’s trend towards sounds more associated with indie rock than electronic. However, the track still carries a strong momentum; the bass line provides the groove while a wavy guitar line underlays Georgia’s uplifting lyrics.
R.Y.C. will be released in full on January 17, with a following tour opening in London a month after. While all signs point towards the album being a stark departure from his self-titled album, the string of singles preceding R.Y.C., including “Teenage Headache Dreams,” indicate Mura Masa can do no wrong.
One of the more intriguing albums on this week’s release schedule is R.Y.C., the new one from British producer Mura Masa.

After months of anticipation, Audien’s debut album, ESCAPISM, is finally here, bringing with it tunes like “Escape” with Nomra. G Jones kicks off the weekend in style with an acid mix of “Drift,” and Diplo adds a groovy backbone to Niall Horan’s “Nice To Meet Ya.” CamelPhat and Jem Cooke whip up “Rabbit Hole,” and drum ‘n’ bass powerhouse DJ Fresh taps Doctrine for “Control.” SNBRN brings the bass with “DMs” featuring Lucati and 1993, and Blasterjaxx links with Junior Funke for “Monster.” Grabbitz delivers another dynamic single on Ultra Music, “Roam With You,” and Nora En Pure continues her tour de force with “Fibonacci.” The Glitch Mob and 1788-L drag listeners to the depths on “Momentary Lapse,” and Tritonal and Henry Dark deliver “Shivohum.” The Chainsmokers release “Push My Luck,” and Dada Life take no prisoners on “Table Flipping Machine.” Friend Within can “Feel It” on his latest, and MUST DIE! unleashes some formidable dubstep on “FUNERAL ZONE.”
As each week brings a succession of new music from some of electronic music’s biggest artists, here’s a selection of tracks that shouldn’t be missed this NMF.
