Product Details

Summary

We are very proud to present, all the way from Paris, a proper full length from Onra on All City Records called Long Distance. A producer with an incredible work rate, most will know him through his most critically acclaimed album Chinoiseries from 2007, a great album created from Vietnamese found-sounds. After some extensive rifling through dusty crates when he went to Vietnam for the first time, the land of his grandparents, he managed to bring back some 30 incredible Chinese and Vietnamese old vinyls. The album became the trademark sound of Onra, once the song "The Anthem" was chosen to illustrate a Coca-Cola TV commercial for Beijing Olympics. While Chinoiseries may be made via similar means - sampling old dusty vinyl - the sounds are distinctively Western and rooted in the 80s!

Long since established as one of the beat scenes go to guys, he flips the style on Long Distance to bring a distinctively French feel. The French, who have been championing the modern soul and boogie sound for time, influenced Onra on what can be considered a personal homage to the R&B and Soul sounds of mid 80s Paris. 21 tracks in all - a mix of instrumentals and vocals - this album is hard to pigeon hole. It's not straight up beat based Hip Hop, nor is it needlessly wonky. Finely crafted songs with high production values, Long Distance features vocal contributions from T3 of Slum Village on "The One", Olivier Daysoul, fresh from Hudson Mohawke's Butter LP, is on two tracks - the title track "Long Distance" and "My Mind is Gone". In addition, Reggie B guests on "High Hopes" along with appearences from French soul-jazz keys player Buddy Sativa (Favorite Records) and Walter Mecca.
