ONRA is known for his heavy, oriental-sampling hip-hop productions. But with his latest remix of Year & Years‘ “Take Shelter,” the Parisian producer has taken a new path, exploring an entirely different sound. Although he’s found himself in unfamiliar territory, he appears to be right at home.
In the first half of the song, he swaps out the original’s bubbly, dancehall beats with his very own piano arrangement, the warm keys accentuating Olly Alexander’s smooth vocals. In the last half, we are exposed to some striking beats and swerving electronics—tools that are more commonly found in ONRA‘s repertoire. It’s clear from listening to this remix that ONRA is determined to make his mark on everything he touches.
