I always had a soft spot for hip hop instrumentals, with that said, this album from Onra combines Madlib esque beats with samples from Asian pop music. The dudes from France, so eat a baguette with cheese, bump this. Then take some lessons, he’s done the beat tape genre right, with no song over 3 mins. It stays repetitive and yet never boring. Just head knocking.
