Biography

From Guernsey in the British Channel Islands, Alex Crossan took up playing guitar, bass and singing at a young age. When he was 16 he started making electronic music after discovering the music sequencer software Ableton Live and began composing his own tunes. Partly inspired by Scottish DJ/producer Hudson Mohawke, he adopted a Japanese name and started working on a new dance genre known as 'trap music' and, after streaming his music on the Internet, he was discovered by Radio 1 DJ Zane Lowe, with the result that his track 'Lotus Eater' subsequently received a lot of airplay.

He left Guernsey to study English literature at the University of Sussex in Brighton, while his reputation as a hot new DJ increased as a result of his mix tape 'Soundtrack to a Death'. His debut EP 'Someday Somewhere' was released in 2015, resulting in one of the tracks, 'Lovesick', becoming a big hit. He went on to co-write the track 'First Things First' on Stormzy's 'Gang Signs & Prayer' album, collaborated with Charli XCX on another hit track '1 Night' and then released his debut album 'Mura Masa' in 2017.
