Alexander Crossan hails from the remote island of Guernsey, and he makes electronic music under the name Mura Masa. The 25-year-old's stage name refers to a famous Japanese wordsmith from the 15th century, whose katanas became a symbol of government resistance.
Crossan is a musical chameleon, having mixed tracks in genres ranging from glittery Japanese-inspired pop to heavy UK garage metal and R'n'B and hip-hop. He's collaborated with artists like A$AP Rocky, Charli XCX, Tirzah and Blackpink, and his work has landed him a Grammy and a spot on the Forbes '30 under 30' list.
You can catch Crossan on the stage at Splendour in the Grass and at sideshows throughout Australia, including one at the Forum on July 22. General public tickets go on sale from 9am on Monday, February 14 through the Ticketek website.
