Paris production duo, The Funk League, will be releasing their debut Funky As Usual on January 24th. Consisting of Hugo and Soulbrother Suspect, The Funk League focuses its work on paying homage to the boom-bap era of hip hop.

Above, you can find their absolutely charming video for “On & On” featuring Sadat X. Take a journey with 3D cardboard cutouts in an adorable diorama world. What an awesome concept – loving the animations. Great jazz vibe and horns on the track as well.

After the jump, check out another video, which features an interview on The Funk League’s history, inspirations, and upcoming album.

Video: Onra – ‘Chinoiseries Pt. 2′ Trailer

Parisian beatsmith Onra has been on our radar for at least a couple years now (with heavy raving from our friends). But as it sometimes goes, we never quite stopped to take the listen we should have. The above trailer for his most recent project, Chinoiseries Pt. 2, was just the reminder we needed. Dude is gully. Plainly and simply.

For the Chinoiseries project, he’s gone digging for Chinese records to create tickling, dark, almost menacing beats that just go. Hard. We’re going to need a hip hop martial arts flick to go with this, stat. Where’s Jackie Chan at?

Look out for Chinoiseries Pt. 2 to drop on November 15th.
