Onra “Soundcheck” (via The Operatives, Australia)


The Operatives are proud to present a new video series, which takes an intimate look at some of the world’s finest electronic producers as they tour Australia. Combining in-depth interviews and footage of the gigs, the exclusive clips offer a backstage pass into a musician’s world, full of sound, worldwide tours and that quality that drives them to make music in the first place.

“I never really planned this music career, I thought it was impossible…” says Parisian producer, Arnaud Bernard, at his Soundcheck. With his unique take on hip-hop, which first ignited his interest in music as a record-collecting ten-year-old, and his ear for unusual samples, Onra has become one of the world’s most sought-after producers. Now signed to Fools Gold Records and after six studio albums, including the game-changing ‘Chinoiseries’ which was crafted from samples of Chinese and Vietnamese records he had discovered whilst travelling, Onra says how despite the label of ‘electronic’, the music he makes is his idea of hip-hop, from sampling Marvin Gaye to Justin Beiber and that each gig is a different experience, all combined with footage from his sell-out show in Melbourne, Australia and his latest music.
