Electronic music artist Alex Crossan, who goes by the stage name Mura Masa, was born and raised on Guernsey, a small island in the English Channel off the coast of Normandy.
A young, well-known producer who grew up performing in punk, hardcore, deathcore and gospel bands, Crossan gravitated to electronic music in his teens and has since won numerous awards and caught the attention of industry giants, including Nile Rodgers.
As one reviewer put it, “this child of the internet generation is now ready to make a serious mark on the big, wide, real world.”
