Man I’m dying to see this guy live in concert. French Kiwi Juice, better known under the moniker of FKJ, has been busy honing his unique brand of glitchy electronic R & B as proved by his latest single Skyline. The French producer is one of those artists that kind of annoys you with how talented he is. Having seen him single handedly play and loop, bass, keys and electric guitar on an improvised session on Youtube back in 2014, it was pretty clear that FKJ would continue to push boundaries by experimenting with different sounds and styles.
If you’re like me and you’re over all this Valentine’s Day bullshit, Skyline is the perfect escape from the roses and chocolates. It’s a real soulful number laced with sharp muffled keyboard melodies that rest beneath the soothing vocals and those knocking sound effects that quiver throughout the track (not going to pretend I know what’s making that sound but it’s dope). I would recommend you close your eyes to enjoy this one but then you’d miss FKJ and his crew riding down a misty road on some pimped out bicycles in the wee hours of the morning.
FKJ is set to release his self-titled debut album ‘French Kiwi Juice’ March 3rd.
