Alex Crossan, better known by his stage name Mura Masa, is an electronic music producer from Guernsey. Mura Masa recently dropped \”Love$ick\”, a collaboration with A$AP Rocky. Does the beat sound familiar? It\’s because it\’s a remix of his original track \”Lovesick Fuck\”. Crossan describes how this track came to life.
Rocky was actually in London for a couple of days and I wanted to make him feel like I was taking the collaboration seriously, so I booked us in to Abbey Road, Studio 2, and we met up there for a couple of hours and he did his thing. It was a hell of a good time hanging out in such a legendary space with him, very surreal. The track originally was about sex and how I was feeling after a particularly empty encounter with a friend told through a kind of twisted-pop, calypso, hip hop dance track. Rocky kind of ran with that and took it to this lovelorn, exotic place. He totally injected his energy into it.
