Onra: Old Skool, New Skool, RnB or Hip-Hop?

French producer Onra joins Flying Lotus for me this year in the category of ‘Beat guys who want to make the world a better place.’ His record ‘Long Distance’ (All City) is a beautiful slice of summery soul with 80s influence, not unlike 90s Hip Hop, yet still looks to the future with more optimism than chin-stroke.

My review at the wonderful soundnotseen blog sums it up a lot better.

Actually, my interview with Onra sums it up even better than that.

Buy the album

And while you’re in the spending mood, grab yourself a tee shirt, too.

If you’re in Sydney, get to graniph Sydney
Shop RG09, The Galeries Victoria, 500 George Street Sydney.

(ROW – find your nearest graniph retailer here)

And if you’re still feeling saucy, buy up on those Ricky Powell Tee shirts or throw in the towel before your girlfriend gets dicked.

    “My Comet” crept into my head one of the mornings. Love that! Will check the rest.
