French hip-hop beatmaker Onra will be playing at Clockenflap 2017.
Globetrotting producer Onra has staked his claim as one of the most exciting beat-makers of the past few years, thanks to releases like the 80's Funk beat album Long Distance, various Boogie edits and his Chinoiseries collections (made with Chinese music samples found while traveling Asia). His talent for delivering emotive, soulful hip-hop that really hits the spot is demonstrated through his multitude of releases since 2006. Hailing from Paris, Arnaud has produced six albums and even more EPs. Through his various releases, Onra takes influences from a hugely eclectic range of sounds, from Jazz through to Funk and RnB; carefully and respectfully using these styles to craft a unique and refreshing take on traditional Hip-Hop.
Onra has two albums planned for 2017, Chinoiseries pt. 3, the last episode of the cult Trilogy, as well as a few other projects more in his beloved retro Funk-R'n'B vibe. “Well on his way to a legendary status.” – Beat Mag “The Parisian has carved a niche by skillfully blending classic touches with modern flair.” – FACT
