Released:
Label: All City Dublin
In 2007, the French beatsmith Onra (Arnaud Bernard) turned a visit to Vietnam into Chinoiseries, an instrumental hip-hop suite that extensively sampled the vintage records he brought back from his grandparents' homeland. Five years later, he replenished his stash of Asian wax and returned with a second volume. The result, again, is a set of classic boom-bap grooves that nods to Shadow and RZA, balancing scraps of funk, soul and psychedelic rock with gongs, bells, strings and exotic scales.
