Biography

Paris, France

Onra is a French beatmaker currently residing in Paris.

He released his first album with other french producer and friend Quetzal (Al Quetz) in 2006. A tribute to music which was played several times by Gilles Peterson, Benji B, and covered on Okayplayer.com.

At the same time, he started collaborating with American keyboard player called Byron The Aquarius and released an album under the name of The Big Payback in 2007 on Japanese label Circulations. A project full of different influences such as futuristic hip-hop, spaced out and jazzy broken beats. They also appeared on highly praised compilations such as Beat Dimensions and New Worlds.

In 2006, he went to Vietnam for the first time, the land of his grand-parents, and managed to bring back some 30 old records of Chinese and Vietnamese origin. He then made a full album with this material called Chinoiseries. Currently his most critically acclaimed album, “Chinoiseries” became the trademark sound of Onra since the song The Anthem has been chosen to illustrate a Coca-Cola TV commercial for Beijing Olympics.

In 2008, he has been selected to attend the prestigious Red Bull Music Academy in Barcelona.

He is also part of the 7x7 series by Irish label All City.

His latest project called 1.0.8 was inspired by music and had been elected as album of the week by many different shops across Europe.
