Almost 10 years have passed since Onra arrived with the charmingly eccentric Chinoiseries LP. Thirty two hip-hop beats formed the sample-based project – dusty Chinese vinyl hissing and crackling throughout – resulting in an intriguing and spontaneous mix of the producers interest in exploring a newly-discovered style of music with his love for classic hip-hop production. Using the style of analog MPC production combined with the somewhat restrictive record sampling of strictly Chinese music records, he has 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. The Chinoiseries projects are the type of albums that invites the listener to play it from beginning to end, in order to really enjoy the trip and appreciate the variety of rhythms and textures spread over those 32 short instrumentals. In that way, Pt.3 is no different to it’s predecessors, but the originality of the samples, the curious harmonies and the odd-drum patterns still makes the album sounds as fresh as the first one. 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 preceding 10 years. As a producer who has released records inspired by ’80s Funk, ’90s hip-hop and R&B, electronic and even a spiritual Jazz project, Pt. 3 brings this stylized set to a close.
