Onra – “Chinoiseries Pt. 3” [Album]

French producer Onra brings his critically acclaimed “Chinoiseries” to a close.

Using the style of analogue MPC production combined with the somewhat restrictive record sampling of strictly Chinese records, he’s been able to be creative over three volumes, an amount of 100 instrumentals, despite the challenge of finding more obviously standout samples in Chinese music.

Onra finishes this epic trilogy with class as a result of extended record digging across the Far East and the producer’s own development over the last 10 years.

Promnite – “Snake Charmer” [EP]

Athletixx DJ collective co-founder Promnite is bringing the love back to club music, mixing hip-hop, R&B and house elements on his new “Snake Charmer” project.

In his own words, the producer describes the EP as

“a narrative of emotion. To me, it marks of a specific time and place in my life and how I felt about certain situations. All four tracks are a bit less of what I’ve been known for which is either club music or beats, but more it flows more like a conscious canvas put together by the features on the record [Denzel Curry, LaDonnis, among others]. Songs like “Gunsmoke” may hit close to home while others like “Cruise’n USA” may make you want to jump up and have fun.”
