Mura Masa drops two reggae-inspired remixes of Koffee’s ‘Toast’ and ‘Throne’

Mura Masa drops two reggae-inspired remixes of Koffee’s ‘Toast’ and ‘Throne’Mura Masa

Mura Masa takes on Jamaica’s multifaceted Koffee for two official remixes. Koffee, a reggae artist from Spanish Town, Jamaica who was recently enlisted for this dubby spin on Justin Bieber and Ed Sheeran‘s “I Don’t Care” gives Mura Masa the perfect groundwork to display tightly honed percussion arrangements once again. Mura Masa is coming hot off the heels of his recent single with K-Pop phenoms BTS, so it only makes sense to follow up with two remix efforts.

For his latest offering, the “Love$ick” producer reinvents Koffee’s “Toast” and “Throne.” On Mura Masa’s rework of “Toast,” he throws a hefty reggae bass line with tropical percussion into the arrangement, capped with some unique surprises. “Throne” has a bit more of an aggressive take that falls into glitchy, dancehall-leaning territory. Both highlight the talented producer’s simple, unique sounds that have made him one of the most sought-after production talents in the game.

As the excitement around BTS‘ new mobile game, BTS World, grows, the South Korean sensations continue to release music for their upcoming album, BTS World: Original Soundtrack. The latest single from the soundtrack is entitled “A Brand New Day,” and it features Swedish vocalist Zara with production from the UK’s Mura Masa.

Mura Masa is known for imbuing his productions with organic elements like flutes and tuned percussion combined with synthetic beats; brought together by an inherent understanding of rhythm. With this solid foundation, the superstar septet and Zara’s vocals cruise along the groove with ease.

“A Brand New Day” is the second single released from the upcoming soundtrack album for BTS World, which is due out June 28. The first was the Charli XCX collaboration, “Dream Glow.” This album release comes on the heels of their previous album, Map of the Soul: Persona, which just came out this past April.

The game, according to a press release from the group, will put players in the role of BTS’ manager prior to their ascension into the limelight. Their goal will be to guide the group to their current level of stardom. BTS World will launch globally just before the album on June 26, with pre-registration open now.

Khamsin & Kidswaste connect on new single, ‘Plastic Dreams’

Khamsin & Kidswaste connect on new single, ‘Plastic Dreams’Khamsin Plastic Dreams Art

French producers Khamsin and Kidswaste linked up for a new jam, “Plastic Dreams.” Both multi-talented musicians are former members of Slow Hours Collective and have been crushing the solo game. Khamsin’s been recruited for remixes by ZHU and Mura Masa, to name a few. The latter, since releasing a debut album in early 2017, has received increased attention with a Manila Killa collaboration and peak Spotify playlist placement. Needless to say, they’ve built quite the listener base for this release.

The track is unique in its own right, with a smooth melody that builds into a pleasing combination of guitar riffs, electro-synths, and captivating vocals. Khamsin said he started on the track a few months ago and then fired it off to Kidswaste.

“He really liked it and told me he wanted to try some guitars & vocals stuff on it… I’m more than happy with the final result on this song, and I think it blends perfectly our mutual universes.”

This is just the start of some new content from the producers, as Khamsin will be releasing a series of singles in the coming months called Reminiscence, and Kidswaste is working on a sophomore album.

Nile Rodgers & Chic release first album in 26 yearsNile Rodgers Chic

It’s been 9,705 days since the last body of work from Nile Rodgers & Chic. But the 26-year wait is over, and It’s About Time is here.

The seasoned disco group have been working for years on their latest album and began teasing singles from it earlier this year. They wowed the world with the release of “Till The World Falls” in June, teaming up with Mura Masa, Vic Mensa, and Cosha for a spirited collaboration on Jools Holland’s show on BBC Two. The remainder of the summer months went by without any additional releases, but early September brought a teaser of what was to come just a few weeks later with “Sober.”

It’s About Time saw its full debut on September 28, featuring an arsenal of star-studded collaborations. Over the course of its 10 tracks, the album sees the group tap artists like Lady Gaga, Elton JohnEmeli Sandé, and many more.

After Rodgers revealed that Anderson .Paak and Bruno Mars would also be involved in the album, It’s About Time may leave fans wondering where their songs are. Fortunately, only a few months remain until the group’s next album, coming February 2019, where the collaborations will hopefully see the light of day. There’s also a possibility Rodgers’ work with Avicii may be released at some point in the future, as the two were reportedly working on 10 tracks before Avicii‘s death in April.

“Complicated” has proven to be one of Mura Masa‘s most brilliant productions to date, and the producer continues to expand on the song with an acoustic rendition. The collaboration with Skrillex has already received an emotionally moving music video, but now, Mura Masa gets together with frequent collaborator NAO (who not only provided the vocals for the track, but also sang on hit singles such as “Firefly“) for an acoustic rendition of “Complicated” performed live.

The performance not only showcases NAO’s powerful vocal ability, but also puts Mura Masa in an entirely new setting, playing some smooth electric guitar riffs over a subtle bassline. Prior to the jam session, viewers get a behind-the-scenes look of Crossan and the British singer/songwriter discussing the track and their past discography.

It’s not a breakup song, but it’s not a love song, either.

Mura Masa‘s latest single, “Complicated” emerged as a hybrid that lyrically bemoaned the difficulties of love, but when it came to sonic arrangement, Mura Masa took the road less traveled, opting not for a slow paced, piano driven tear jerker, but a spunky, tropical tinged summer staple that sounds less like a complaint concerning romantic woes, and more like a celebration thereof.

Now, an official music video follows the release of the Skrillex co-produced single to visually expound upon the song’s critical yet playful nature. Featured vocalist Nao breathes lyrical life into the video as the lens twists and turns, transitioning from scenes of dancers donning scarlet dresses, to shots that betray the dissonance between the video’s lovers. The music video arrives as a fun depiction of the highs and lows of love, as reflected in the production’s constant scene shifts.
