Onra : L.O.V.E.

Onra is a French beatmaker signed to Fool’s Gold (the A-Trak-run label that brought you Danny Brown’s XXX and Action Bronson & Party Supplies’ Blue Chips), who applies hip hop’s cut & paste production techniques to ’80s-inspired synth-funk and electro-boogie. Definitely one to watch, he has a new five-track EP – Deep In The Night – out June 12; “L.O.V.E.” (below) is taken from that disc, which also includes guest vocals from Slum Village’s T3 on the track “After Hours”.

About foamhands

My name is Michael Dix. I'm a thirtysomething dad who has written in the past for The Quietus, Resident Advisor and Onethirtybpm. Music has been a huge part of my life for over twenty years, and I still passionately love everything from classic rock and indie pop to hip hop and techno, from Afrobeat and jazz to Krautrock and metal, so I decided to try and spread the word about some of the stuff I hear and like. Hopefully you'll like some of it too, and if you do please bookmark the site (I try to post something most days, even if having a baby girl to look after sometimes makes that impossible) and follow me on Twitter @FoamHandsBlog to receive notifications of new posts, and the occasional random brain-fart. Lastly, please share links wherever you can: word of mouth is everything!
