Onra’s Long Distance

Parisian beat maestro, Arnaud Bernard aka Onra returns with his new full-length, Long Distance. Abandoning the old world samples he used in Chinoiseries, and 1.0.8, Long Distance adopts a smooth 80’s vibe throughout. I imagine it being the sound of the 1980’s New York underground, and Onra lays it on thick and chilled. Dirty funk bass, hand clap beats, soul breaks, old skoool scratching, Lionel Ritchie guitars, moments reminiscent of J.J. Fad and bad 90’s muzak, plus some great guests makes this definitely one to check out.

Listen to “Send Me Your Love” below. I’ve been playing this track on repeat.

Love it!
