I could really go for some actual kiwi juice right about now, but I’m even happier drifting away to French Kiwi Juice as he delivers a new video for soft simmering Why Are There Boundaries, a slow burner off of the Parisian producer and multi-instrumentalists debut full length. FKJ bathes us in chiffon luxuriance with his slow waltz of a languid soother. He also imbues the heavenly song’s gorgeous video with some topical visuals. He takes us to the US / Mexico border to examine the effects of a simple wall. It’s obvious from Why Are There Boundaries and its jazzy rock that FKJ’s versatile talent is limitless. You can purchase his debut album French Kiwi Juice from iTunes, here.

Parisian producer and multi-instrumentalist FKJ dropped his highly anticipated debut full length, fittingly named, what else, but French Kiwi Juice, last Friday. The record has been a long time coming. After all, FKJ has been an esteemed name in the electronic music scene for many a year now. Let’s celebrate the release of that album with the music video for stand out album single Skyline. FKJ demonstrates pure class on this smooth sophisticated, glossy lustrous, and swanky chic groover. A dreamy languorous form of chill funk and jazzy twinkling electronica leaves us cruising in bliss, much like the carefree ride that people take in Skyline’s video on their neon lit bicycles. French Kiwi Juice is out now on Roche Musique. Purchase and stream the album, here.

French Kiwi Juice, or FKJ, slays on the Parisian producer’s remix of Belgium songbird Selah Sue’s Alone. Even if you’re not a funk and groove type of person, there’s no resisting the lush opulence and booty shaking goodness on this one. FKJ’s remix slides smoothly with sexy future soulfulness even as it struts briskly with a sassy swagger. FKJ’s Selah Sue remix should tide us over for some time as the producer continues working on an album.

I happen to love fresh kiwi juice a lot, but that’s not why I’ve fallen under the spell of French Kiwi Juice, or FKJ’s glistening music time and time again. The French producer brings his opulent and chic sound to British soul sensation Lianne La Havas’ new single Unstoppable for his latest sublime remix. The mellow re-imagining is full of smooth jazz and snappy funk, as well as an abundant dash of future soul. FKJ’s remix is a glimmering ocean of resplendent strings, keys, and bass, perfectly topped off with Lianne’s immaculate, melting voice.

I’m listening and sharing a lot more indie hip hop these days than I have in a long time, which really says something about the scene. It also says a lot about how much I dig it when electronic and hip hop meet at the middle. New Birmingham based talent Thai Mason teams up with French producer FKJ on new track Drunk. The resplendent, snazzy atmosphere and Thai Mason’s soulful, earnest delivery are a fine pairing. Drunk is part of a collection of songs that Thai Mason has been writing and recording between Birmingham, Nottingham, and London, while working with some incredible producers.

Earlier this week, I came to the conclusion that Galantis’ Runaway (U & I) might be the most remixed track of the moment, based on the sheer amount of remixes rolling in for the tune. Upon closer examination, enigmatic producer ZHU’s Paradise Awaits might be a close second. There have been some dope remixes, some of them very heavy hitting. This Song Is Sick premiered this slick, seductive one by French producer FKJ (French Kiwi Juice). It’s suitable for some late night grooving with its effervescent, funky elements and provocative, smooth appeal.

French Kiwi Juice! Man, I still love that name, since I love kiwi juice. So, yes, Parisian producer FKJ is back at it again, with this opulent, sugary sweet jam Learn To Fly, which features Australian act Jordan Rakei. As with all of FKJ’s tunes, it’s a chic, smooth R&B treat. Learn To Fly is on FKJ’s new Take Off EP, which just came out on Roche Musique.

It’s a chic, jazzy electronic soul number off FKJ’s newly released EP Take Off.
