Future Classic: Onra “Long Distance”

Soul & Funk

Brilliant future space soul boogie right here… Boompty Bump!!

I’ve been on to ONRA for a little while now, he’s been putting top quality stuff since 2006. The former Red Bull Music Academy grad caught my attention with his project called “Chinoiseries”, a collage of traditional Vietnamese songs he dug while exploring his roots (his grand parents were born in Saigon). Onra has been confirming ever since that the buzz is well deserved. His new record is once again a giant step forward.
