|Fundamentals is Parisian producer Onra's first full-length album in four years. A paean to 90s hip-hop and R&B long players, Fundamentals is an album that wears its Golden Era inspirations proudly on its sleeve.|
Far more than the sum of its influences, it's a retrofuturistic sound, looking back but thinking forward. A collaborative project with a busy line up, which has taken a while to cook up, the features run the gamut from back-in-the-day heads to fresh up-and-comers. Taking the production levels up a notch with a more crafted, polished sound across the whole LP, the album was produced entirely on an MPC with no computer software used. Fundamentals is a very personal project for the French producer, built on hip-hop and R&B foundations and flipped in his own signature style.
