O.N.O – Don’t You Know Feat. Praa
Meet our fresh exclusive signing O.N.O: the new Parisian electronic duo.
Comprised of French DJ, Nathalie Duchene, and her friend Rudy Kobain, O.N.O is a project formed through their connection on the Paris electronic scene.
O.N.O have previously worked with Yuksek and Jabberwocky – their music is mixed down by Julien Delfaut from Super Discount. Their previous single THE AMERICAN which included a remix by Panthera Krause was picked up by Lauren Laverne on BBC6, Radio Nova & Tsugi in France. They have been getting love from Chloe, Jennifer Cardini, Terr and many more. Their music has been featured on Delicieuse Musique, Les Yeux Orange, Liquid Youth.
Quirky French duo O.N.O have been hard at work last year, making the most of the forced confinement by cooking up some of their most sophisticated work yet.‘Don’t You Know Feat. Praa’ is a powerful, triumphant track that will lift the spirits. Bordering the lines between slinky nu disco and pumping house, it features sublime, breathy vocals from fellow Parisian newcomer, Praa. Her warm tones glide over a beautiful melange of off-beat disco bass, funked-up synth touches and moody atmospheric touches, all set to a snappy, tight beat. A heady breakdown and massive snare roll build-up kick the track into overdrive, and the mixture of ‘80s mood and driving modern day energy is a truly sumptuous mix.‘In Spekzion’ rocks an Italo disco vibe in some style, convincingly recreating the muscular vibe of the era. A stuttering, whooping chopped-up vocal loop draws us in, a slowly phasing synth ‘n’ bass arpeggio cutting in sharply as the light beat and gated ‘80s snares explode into life. A swirling, muted synth snarls; another taps out an optimistic melody. Huge snare hits launch us out of the short breakdown, propelling us back towards that deliciously camp and retro vocal hook that recalls the days of primitive samplers with short sample times. The duo say that “the track was inspired by a host of anxiety-inducing information delivered in recent months, a total letting go of reality, a seizure of power over what surrounds us, a positive rebellion, a burst of oxygen.”
