With an eclectic arsenal of samples and an ear for international sounds, Onra (born Arnaud Bernard) is a beatmaker based out of Paris, France. Reminiscent of crate-diggers like Madlib and DJ Shadow, Onra peppers his beats with exotic sounds from Vietnam and India, giving his sound an international flair. The French producer released his debut album, Tribute, in 2006 on Bo Bun Records which was played several times by notable trendsetters like Gilles Peterson and Benji B. He then followed up the next year with the critically acclaimed Chinoiseries, which was released on both Favorite Recordings and Bo Bun.
Continuing to stay productive, Onra released 1.0.8 in 2009 on Bo Bun before switching to All City Records in 2010 for the release of Long Distance. Long Distance featured tracks with Olivier DaySoul, fellow French beatmaker Walter Mecca, and T3 from Slum Village, soul singer Reggie B and keyboard player Buddy Sativa. It received press coverage from respected medias such as Pitchfork, which gave the album an outstanding 8.0/10, as well as Jay-Z's blog, LifeAndTimes. In 2011, the beatmaker released Chinoiseries, Vol. 2 to much fanfare and buzz.
He was also selected to attend the prestigious Red Bull Music Academy in 2008, and played at the Sonar Festival the next summer.
On May 15, 2015, Onra released his third album called "Fundamentals".
