Having spent the past five years collaborating with some of the biggest names on the touring circuit today – he’s the studio wizard behind recent Nao, Stormzy, Cosha, Charli XCX, ASAP Rocky, A. K. Paul, Desiigner and slowthai tracks – Mura Masa’s live shows are famed for their proliferation of electronic music gadgets, instruments and headline guest performers. Following the release of his second record, R.Y.C. (Raw Youth Collage), Mura Masa embarked on a radical departure from convention, expanding to a full band setup. TPi caught up with the young team of creatives on board as they loaded into Manchester’s O2 Victoria Warehouse, 24 hours after a headline show at London’s Alexandra Palace.
