FKJ Releases 3 Recordings From First Session With Full Band "The Nightbirds" & Curates BBC "Mini Mixtape"

FKJ Band + BBC

Parisian multi-instrumentalist FKJ is undoubtedly one of the most talented musicians in the game. He’s had quite the busy summer, recently sharing two live videos – one of him performing his track “Die With A Smile” with the backdrop of an aquarium and the other, his more recent live collaboration with Masego, “Tadow." Tie these in with his debut album “French Kiwi Juice,” and FKJ has already taken the world by storm in the first half of 2017.

Now FKJ has joined forces with fellow musicians Wayne Snow, Darius, and Crayon to form a full band called The Nightbirds, which he says performs “improvised music.” Their first session is out today via Roche Musique, consisting of three songs: “Midnight Run,” “Gonna Be Alright,” and “Goodbye.” The first track transitions seamlessly into the next, with all three maintaining a chill and trippy downtempo vibe. Stream below:

Moreover, FKJ recently curated a “Mini Mixtape” for BBC Radio, in which he discusses his musical background and influences. He shows us some of his favorites, including music from Mild High Club and Aretha Franklin, and he makes sure to throw in a couple of his own tracks too. It’s evident that FKJ is a Jack-of-all-trades, and his talents shine in his latest material. We can be sure that he won’t be slowing down anytime soon. For now, check out his mini-mix below and enjoy!

Pete Tong's influential BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix is regarded by many dance music producers as a massive career achievement due to the growing legacy of acts who've curated the 2-hour program. Coming a long way from his initial breakout hit "Harlem Shake", NYC beat maker Baauer was called into action to curate for the radio series delivering one of the strongest mixes to date.

Following the recent release of his debut studio album Aa, which features the charting singles "Go", "Day Ones", and "Kung Fu", Baauer continues to send it hard in the trap and bass space by placing a stacked set of heaters into the Essential Mix. Tunes from Mr. Carmack, Rustie, Oshi, Hudson Mohawk, and many others are nestled with singles from Baauers past and present for a solid collection of unreleased music, fan favorites, and little known gems. Stream the new Essential Mix below and check out his new album "Aa" available now. Enjoy
