Onra returns for some more dusty, Asian-themed beats (audio)
I’ve heard many stories from my favorite DJs and artists that Chinese records are among the rarest beasts in all the land. So how French/Vietnamese producer Onra continues to keep finding enough of them to keep his ongoing Chinoiseries going is beyond me but here we are again.
For those unaware, the Chinoiseries are essentially beat tapes composed of strictly Chinese records as the sample source and they have been a consistent highlight in the man’s career. If this track is anything to go by, Pt. 3 won’t disappoint either. Those of you more familiar with Onra’s glossier, more futuristic productions won’t find anything like that here, The dusty, crackling sample is the main focus while the tastefully used and chosen drums back everything up. The song is over in a heart beat and will leave wanting more but it serves a fantastic appetizer for what’s to come.
Considering that this album series is almost as rare as the records he samples, you should be happy to note that this release will be coming out on All City on March 10th. For now though, you’ll have to settle with the pre-order from the man’s Bandcamp, which you can check out here! Definitely check it out, as there’s a Chinoiseries set that looks all too tempting…
