Mura Masa – All Around The World (feat. Desiigner)
Castel, Guernsey (England) based producer, Mura Masa, teams up with Brooklyn trap sensation, Desiigner, to produce a melodic trap composition with mesmerizing high-end elements. The song is called All Around The World, and we’re really feeling Mura Masa’s dynamic percussion arrangement and high-end production play around to Desiigner’s signature vocals. All Around The World has a bit more of a trap arrangement than what we’re used to hearing from Alex Crossan, a.k.a. Mura Masa. The xylophone and Asian flute sound contrasting with Desiigner‘s lower octave vocals is a style that we’re hearing a lot in today’s modern trap productions. As listeners, the frequencies are not cluttered, and we can really appreciate the tonality of each and every element. Hats off to the production team on this one.
The billboard chart topper, Mask Off, by Atlanta Trap artist, Future, also contains similar elements to Mura Masa’s new track. This has sprung the conversation here at rBeatz about what makes a popular trap song.
The flute in Mask Off does a similar job of separating the vocals from the other melody elements in our ears. This creates a wide harmony that is easily digestible, easy to remember, and fun to dance to.
