Before I pretty much copy and paste my review from Part 1, let me say, this is the stronger one in my opinion, though both offer very good listening. This one is stronger from a "track after track" perspective, to me anyway. It feels more cohesive and flows better.
This release is exactly what it says it is- Part 2. So, my review from Part 1 applies the same:
This is an enjoyable, well-crafted assortment of Eastern sounds (dug up from 60's and 70's Chinese and Vietnamese vinyls collected during a trip to the region- which is of Onra's family lineage) and hip-hop beats. The result of the combination of the two is a listen very similar to Madlib's Beat Konducta India volume for anyone into that or who has heard it (though the India part obviously gets replaced by the aforementioned Chinese and Vietnamese sounds).
This is definitely a recommended listen for fans of hip-hop (especially instrumental), fans of uniquely combined musical styles and anyone simply looking for something new and fun. I'm actually surprised there hasn't been more reviews/attention given here.
If anyone's curious, according to Wiki, Chinoiseries is a French (which is also in Onra's blood) term, signifying "Chinese-esque", and refers to a recurring theme in European artistic styles since the seventeenth century, which reflect Chinese artistic influences. It is characterized by the use of fanciful imagery of an imaginary China, by asymmetry in format and whimsical contrasts of scale. Chinoiserie in a broader scope refers to a mixture of Eastern and Western stylistic elements.
And that's just what you get here- East meets West, and gets shaped into hip-hop, Part 2.
