[MP3] Onra – Long Distance

Following from the All City records mini-feature we did in last month’s show (catch that here if you haven’t yet), we got some more free MP3-ness from the excellent Dublin-based label in the shape of a teaser for the forthcoming Onra album, ‘Long Distance’.

Ahead of the album, which drops in May, All City are releasing the lead single of the same name in April featuring 2 tracks from the album and 2 additional instrumentals. The 12″ tracks feature Olivier Daysoul on the title cut and Reggie B on ‘High Hopes’. You can stream and download a low-res of the title cut below. Also there is a pretty funny teaser vid for the album and single which you can view below – this video includes the tracks from the 12, including the rather tasty Oper8tor which is my joint on this single. As you can no doubt tell by the video the whole thing has a distinct 80s vibe to it though Onra manages to steer well clear of pastiche and cliches by bringing his own twist to the beats. I’m no big fan of 80s influenced stuff but this is definitely ticking all the right boxes and only serves to raise the anticipation for the album, his first one since the self-released 1.0.8 dropped in late ’08/early ’09.

For more on the Parisian producer be sure to hit his myspace and while you’re at why not check this exclusive ‘Soulful Joints’ mix he did for us last year featuring 40 minutes of music that has inspired him.

Big thanks as always to All City and keep a eye out for part 3 of their L.A 10×10 series also dropping this month with one side looked after by Ras G and the other by Samiyam. Nuff said!
