ONRA

Arnaud Bernard’s Chinoiseries album ensured his stage name, ONRA, was etched into the history books forever. Receiving many an accolade, the French beatmaker, naturally alongside his trusty MPC, is soon to return with Chinoiseries Pt. 3, the anticipated finale to the trilogy that has garnered such positive reviews. Looking deeper though, I was keen to discuss ONRA’s story, what Chinoiseries means for him and discover what he thinks of the current state of music.

Frank Carter

I went down to Leefest (you know that festival from that Android advert?) the other week, not really knowing many of the bands playing, but still hyped as it had pretty complimentary reviews from previous years. Then, days before heading down I saw Frank Carter and The Rattlesnakes were announced as

Logan Sama

In every important cultural moment, there are always a number of different players. At the centre, you have the actors, the people creating and pushing the movement. Close by, you have the facilitators, who create the platforms, channels and pathways through which those actors can hone their craft.

Going Full Circle with Melé

Melé is my favorite DJ. In all my years I’ve never seen anyone as dexterous as him behind the decks, not since Mark Ronson, who can play across such a wide genre base, pull out forgotten classics and keep it as tight and inclusive as Melé does. He’s always been this way too; we first met in

Blonde: The YouTube Generation

A recent criticism of the internet is that it gives everyone a voice, for better or for worse. For music producers, this means that it’s not only much more accessible to find and hear music, it’s also much easier to get your music out there to willing listeners, with many artists on the
