Arnaud Bernard AKA Onra is a talented Parisian beat maker in the same field as contemporaries like J Dilla. Now we’re talking.
This song is an edit of that famous one by 80s disco band The Whispers and the way he handles the edit – by retaining enough of the songs original charm yet changing it enough that it becomes an entirely different genre -shows us just why Onra is referred to as a ‘beatmaker’. He takes the memorable chorus and rides with it along a roll of layered snares and a deep kick drum, creating a chilled out masterpiece.
