Hi Mura Masa, are you ready for the big main stage?
Yeah, I guess. It’s been really good this summer so far. I’ve not done too many festivals this year, because I’ve been working on new music. I’ve been really looking forward to this festival as it is one of the biggest shows I play this year.
You’re breaking boundaries with your electro-music by mashing it up with hip hop, R&B and pop. What’s the next boundary you want to break with your music?
Rock and punk music! I’ve kind of taken it that way for the new album. There’s a lot of guitar, shouting and spoken word in my new music.
What triggered that evolution?
I used to play in a lot of punk bands when I was younger, so that’s my background. I wanted to go back to that, because my last album was very pop music-focused so I started to play guitar again.
It’s amazing to see how you make all the music on your own when you’re on stage, but isn’t it very challenging to put a show together all on your own?
I feel that it’s difficult to translate electronic music into a live space, especially on your own. I kind of do my best and try to make it interesting live for the audience. DJing is something completely different from live shows, I think.
