Parisian producer French Kiwi Juice –also known as FKJ — has grown to be one of the leading innovators and advocates of the chiller side of bass which runs neatly with R&B and hip-hop genres. We've seen his genius at hand via phenomenal remixes of Alina Baraz & Galimatias "Pretty Thoughts" and Zhu's "Paradise Awaits" along with his the recent single "Better Give You Up" from a forthcoming studio album.
To temporarily settle our anticipation for the release, FKJ gifts us with an absolutely gem of a remix! Taking Belgian songstress Selah Sue's pop-soaked single "Off Alone"into his production mastery, the artist passes a cool breeze of good vibes and and summertime aesthetics throughout. A soft set of drum kicks, nü-house, and future soul chic are cast in all the right measures and arrangements.
Stream this hip creation below and check back for more info on FKJ's album soon. Enjoy

Australian live act Atlas Bound has come onto the scene this past year with their unique indie electronic vibes and smooth vocals. Their most recent release, "Landed On Mars", has reached a wide audience in only 3 months of being released.
Today, the track has received a fresh infusion from fellow Australian artist Feki. He turned the original into a laid-back, mellow track that packs some hypnotizing vibes. He combines layers of manipulated vocals, lush synths, and textured percussion to give us an infectious take on the Sydney duo's original track. Stream the song, which was released on Next Wave Records, and grab a free download while also keeping an eye out for what these talented artists have in store. Enjoy!

LA based R&B singer Gallant is having a breakout year with his streak of releases on the Mind Of A Genius label alongside ZHU. One of the recent tracks, "Weight In Gold," looks to be Gallant's strongest song to date and has already started seeing remixes pop up, like Ta-Ku's official take on the song, which we featured a couple weeks ago.
Well, remixer extraordinaire, Louis Futon, who we've featured extensively through remixes of G-Eazy, ODESZA, Mos Def, Wiz Khalifa and much more, has stepped up to the plate and given this R&B ballad a whole new life. While keeping things soulful and leaving the vocals intact, this remix adds drums leading to a quavering bass line, and minimal glitchy vocals & synths. The remix does the incredible original justice, as he adds a uniquely seductive twists to perfectly compliment the belted-out vocals. Following up multiple festival stops including Coachella, Counterpoint, and Paradiso, Louis is prepping for his first headline tour with the first stop in Denver this month. Gallant is also set to support Sufjan Stevens on his tour later this year. See dates below. Enjoy!
