Onra "A New Dynasty"
With his latest album, Chinoiseries Pt 2, all set for release next month on All City, French hip-hop and boogie maestro Onra (a.k.a. Arnaud Bernard), has been kind enough to provide us with a free sample from the new record. "A New Dynasty" is a deceptively dense piece of instrumental hip-hop, one that begins with scratchy vinyl ambiance and a woman speaking Chinese before dropping into some classic, synth-laden boom-bap, complete with funk drums and interwoven flourishes of Asian melody.
