Times moving too quickly, it doesn't seem that long since I bought Onra's 1.0.8. Time however waits for no man as they say and Onra's next musical excursion hits shelves (and servers) next month. Check out the album teaser trailer above and then jump over to Onra's Soundcloud to hear more.

Onra previously contributed to the brilliant French beats compilation La Boulangerie (A LateMag favourite). His first album was the excellent Chinoiseries produced the standout track The Anthem.

Depakote – It Ain’t ‘94 Anymore

 

"The 14 tracks chop and dice samples from classic soul and funk, riding atop some amazingly dirty beat constructions and rude synths, to create a mixtape that flows effortlessly, fusing classic elements with modern production techniques and a fresh attitude."

Diego Bernal - For Corners

"For Corners is the first full length album from Diego Bernal, a civil rights attorney and beatsmith, located in San Antonio, TX. For Corners is Diego Bernal's love letter to the music, cultures, era and people that nurtured him.

The music is dusty and layered with Latin soul, from the triumphant blasts of horns to the laid back groove of lowrider melodies. It is a call to return to the simplicity and integrity of hip-hop's best moment and an invitation to enjoy a slightly different kind of southern comfort. Not so much dirty south as directly south. The full album is a completely free download."

Onra The Anthem

Left: The Anthem Single Right: Chinoiseries Album cover art

"Due to it's immense success and the huge amount of requests for a longer version of The Anthem, Favorite Recordings felt it had to do it's best to satisfy Onra fans, DJ's as well as newcomers to his beats. The brilliantly odd instrumental hip hop beat constructed around vintage Vietnamese pop records picked up in flea markets on a trip to the far east is now available on 7 inch."

The Anthem is taken from the LP Chinoiseries which French DJ Onra began work on in 2006 after a trip to to Vietnam, where picked up some rare (in the west at least) classic Vietnamese vinyl.
