Line Up22:00-23:00 D'rocc23:00-24:00 DABOZZ24:00-01:10 ONRA01:10-LATE D'roccABOUT ONRAGlobetrotting producer Onra has staked his claim as one of the most exciting beat-makers of the past few years, thanks to releases like the 80's Funk beat album Long Distance, various Boogie edits and his Chinoiseries collections (made with Chinese music samples found while traveling Asia).His talent for delivering emotive, soulful hip-hop that really hits the spot is demonstrated through his multitude of releases since 2006. Hailing from Paris, Arnaud has produced six albums and even more EPs. Through his various releases, Onra takes influences from a hugely eclectic range of sounds, from Jazz through to Funk and RnB; carefully and respectfully using these styles to craft a unique and refreshing take on traditional Hip-Hop. Onra has two albums planned for 2017, Chinoiseries pt. 3, the last episode of the cult Trilogy, as well as a few other projects more in his beloved retro Funk-R'n'B vibe.
The trip to Vietnam in 2006 breeds his most Asia-rooted and interesting album, Chinoiseries, an album that blends Hip-Hop and Chinese Pop Music influences, because of the collection that he made out of 30 60-70’s Chinese and Vietnamese pop records during the trip.
Onra was selected to Red Bull Academy in Barcelona two years later then started his debut world tour. His 2010 album, Long Distance, is his most critically acclaimed album, with an outstanding 8/10 from Pitchfork, and a feature on Jay-Z’s blog, LifeandTimes. After his Chinoiseries Part II, in which he digs deeper into the soul of Chinese traditional and pop music, he’s preparing Chinoiseries Part III, to be released in Spring 2017.
You can not only hear the combination of Peking Opera, Mandarin dialogues and hip-hop beats from his last two Chinoiseries, but also new songs featured on part 3 of this great project. BE READY !
