ONRA (France/Allcity) graces Brisbane bass bins on November 10th

October 25th, 2011

Onra has a lot of bases covered. Emerging from a hip-hop background, his inspirations have also encompassed soul, funk, jazz, reggae, boogie, modern soul, R’n’B, dub and prog rock.


Travelling to Vietnam, the home of his grandparents, Onra went on a serious digging mission which resulted in an album called Chinoiseries, crafted entirely from samples from Vietnamese and Chinese vinyl gather on the journey.

Turning direction again, Onra dropped his opus Long Distance in 2010, tapping into the sounds of 80s boogie, modern soul and funk with a full length composed entirely on the MPC1000.

Parisian beatmaker Onra (Arnaud Bernard) hits Brisbane on Thursday November 10 with a live show at Barsoma.

Listen to a full live set from RBMA – http://redbullmusicacademyradio.com/shows/2947/

The support line-up includes Brisbane’s mysterious purveyor of boogie-funk Wolfwolf, White Rhino’s Arku and newcomer Dispatj dispensing local takes on beats, modern soul and disco.

$15+bf from Rocking Horse Records & all OzTix outlets

scuba tank ft dj ripley @ 320, 07.10.09

October 1st, 2009

Once again, it’s the time of month for submersion, with the October installment of SCUBA TANK. As usual, presented by Dank Morass and White Rhino crews, it will entail only the finest in progressive and soothing sounds. The Tank’s new home at 320 in Spring Hill allows us to be liberal with sonics and free party vibes for all the people who appreciate it!

FREE as always this Wednesday October 7, SCUBA TANK will be boasting international steez from the one known as DJ Ripley. All the way from San Fransico, she digs deep to bring forth the unheard sounds and mixing skills to the Brisbane shores.

Dj Ripley has been tearing up dancefloors across North America and Europe for 12 years, in town squares, warehouses, ships, clubs, squats, community centers and activist spaces. Her genre-smashing sets build audiences into heaving monuments unified by dopeness. She has released mixes on the Death$ucker [http://www.deathsucker.org/] label, on Modyfier-modifying, on Spannered.org, Mashit.com, and on her own blog http://djripley.blogspot.com. She recently wrapped up 6 months living and working in Jamaica, where she was djing and researching copyright law and creative practice.

Along with this very special guest, the usual high quality selectors from Brisbane’s own bowels will never fail to sort the masses out with healing music.

White Rhino’s Arku and Dank Morass’ Danck and Walrii will lovingly choose a forward thinking, internationally cutting edge selection of global bass music, roots and soul progressions.

Live visuals and ambience provided by good friends and fine artists Cornish and Micro Matic. They will be manipulating pixels like oreo cookie dough, sporadically seen in Brisbane.
