He also confirms a run of headline shows in addition to performing both weekends of Coachella—see full routing below and get tickets here.
Drawing inspiration from junglism, jersey club and break core, “Whenever I Want” takes the base elements of these subgenres and transforms them into something that sounds decidedly Mura Masa. The track marks the continuation of a club-oriented era which will see Mura Masa explore the full spectrum of electronic music with releases on his own new label, Pond Recordings.
The new track follows Mura Masa’s production on the chart-topping, global hit, “Boy’s a liar Pt. 2” with PinkPantheress and Ice Spice and his critically acclaimed third studio album, demon time, released to critical acclaim in 2022, which saw the in-demand producer channel hedonistic themes and nuanced subcultures into thrillingly futuristic pop. Written shortly after his European tour in support of his guitar driven second album, R.Y.C, the record connected the dots between his genre-shaping Soundcloud origin story, and the new wave of electronic music as it exploded on platforms like TikTok. Continuing Mura Masa’s ever-growing list of blockbuster collaborators, demon timefeatured contributions from Shygirl, Lil Uzi Vert, PinkPantheress, slowthai, Erika de Casier, Pa Salieu and more.
