Dummy Mix 530 // umru

The PC Music artist and Charli XCX producer blends up pop in its weirdest forms...

NYC producer umru first blasted into our consciousness after making his stamp on Charli XCX’s ‘Pop 2’ mixtape, where he worked with PC Music’s A.G Cook on ‘I Got It’.

The 19-year-old beatmaker was plucked out from the Soundcloud wasteland by the pop label head, who drafted him in for the iconic record.

Now, umru’s solo productions have found a home on the hyper-digital imprint – on the thrilling EP ‘search result’, which taps into a wealth of vocal talent from the likes of Banoffee and Ravenna Golden.

umru’s Dummy Mix is a wild ride of hedonistic pop edits and tear-jerking crystalline melodies – not to mention that it’s bookended by a church choir recording of John Tavener’s ‘The Lamb’ (which is kinda apt as he described his EP as “something like the lights flashing across a cathedral ceiling”).
