Time for The Drop! Been waiting weeks for this, Norway debut for Onra playing live with French jazz musician Buddy Sativa and a return to Oslo for one of the stand out acts from Sonar 2011 - Offshore. Not only that but, the anticipated live show from local act Torkelsen, live visual set up from VJ Pop Com and some expert selections from myself (Uraki Riddim) and Sellout! music’s Andre Jazzmal… phewwww. For those not in the know, Onra is one of the hottest music acts around right now - selling out shows from NYC to Dublin to Copenhagen and picking up reps from the likes of Jay-Z along the way. IN SHORT: DO NOT MISS THIS OSLO!
