R.Y.C (raw youth collage)
a metropolis of different genre flavours & guest talents, the guernsey-born producer’s sophomore is a glorious mix of wonky lo-fi chillers and high-octane electro-pop bangers, featuring the likes of slowthai, clairo, Georgia and wolf alice.
Breathing new life into - amongst other things – New Wave, Emo, Folk and 90s Rave – tracks like ‘No Hope Generation’ reinvent Mura Masa's sound whilst also paying tribute to the alternative roots which shaped him when he first became a genuine musical outsider, growing up in the remote island of Guernsey. And it’s this fondness for the music of adolescence – reworked in thoroughly modern, bedroom-pop fashion – that became an analogue for the theme of the album as a whole. “Gone are the house influences that underpinned his 2016 debut, and in are scratchy demo-sounding guitars, crisp production and gorgeous flourishes of string arrangements” 4/5 – diymag.
