Onra "The One (Feat. T3 from Slum Village)"

Last week, we offered up a streaming preview of Long Distance, the latest effort from boogie-minded French producer Onra. The 21-track opus has plenty of memorable moments, but few rhymes, as it's a mostly instrumental effort. But when MCs do pop up on the record, the results are incredibly natural. On "The One," T3 of much-missed Detroit outfit Slum Village—who incidentally have a new album on the way—builds on the upbeat vibe of Onra's funky grooves, lending the track an old-school summertime feel. Now that temperatures are heating up, feel free put this tune on at your local backyard BBQ—we promise, no one is going to be upset.
