Onra - Chinoiseries Pt.2
Onra returns with Chinoiseries Part Two (pout Nov 15). I'm guessing you're familiar with the first installment of this incredibly funky trawl thru Asia. If not, I urge you to check it out (sample below).
ADDED: Just saw via Conch that Onra is playing live in Auckland at Khuja Lounge, 11 November, with locals Julien Dyne, and Funkommunity in support.
From Stink Inc: "The Vietnamese-French producer and DJ caught my eye with his 'Chinoiseries' album, earlier this year . For starters it looked the part, and the briefest of spins on the decks confirmed it was something a little special. Comprised of 32 beat vignettes, most barely troubling the two minute mark, it's a response to a visit back to the land of his grandparents where he picked up a bundle of comfortingly scratchy Vietnamese/Oriental vinyl... There's a whole other fandangle with Coke and the Olympics to do with [The Anthem], which you can read about at the excellent Pinglewood blog..."
