Sydney-based artist Arona Mane just announced his latest project that shows off the producer’s captivating take on future funk, while also displaying his musical aptitude in mixing all types of genres to create his own personal sound. This new development comes in the form of a 10-track mixtape that is filled to the brim with Arona Mane’s best work. Drawing inspiration from a number of influences, his new mixtape 2096:Retro/Future is a flawless mixture of funk, soul and hip-hop elements, ranging from his own forward-thinking productions to his personal renditions of tracks from Major Lazer, Tate Kobang, Hermitude.
“2096 refers to bringing the golden age of hip-hop into the future. ‘96 is widely regarded as the best year in hip-hop, which saw the release of some of the now classic albums from Jay Z, The Fugees, Snoop, 2Pac, Nas, Outkast and The Roots. Musing these greats, I wanted to present an actual body of work very early on, in an effort to introduce my sound in a bigger way. The electronic music scene is generally dominated by artists who release single after single, which is cool, but since I was a kid, I’ve always fallen in love with artists because of their albums as a whole – I want to deliver that feeling with my music.” – Arona Mane
