Stream FKJ’s Must Hear, Funky & Soulful Debut Album ‘French Kiwi Juice’

FKJ Press Shot Album

It’s no secret French multi-instrumentalist, producer and vocalist extraordinaire FKJ is one of our favorites. After years of incredible remixes and original tracks, the talented artist has shared his much-anticipated debut album French Kiwi Juice

FKJ’s sound is incredibly unique. The way he loops instruments to create a depth of layers is just amazing. His live sets and videos of his studio recordings display his insane versatile skill set that is the definition of the term "one man band". 

FKJ’s song captures endless amounts of funk and soul as he effortlessly loops sax, guitar, bass, keys and more as he even offers his own vocals to a handful of tracks. The 12-track project includes his previously releases singles "Skyline", “Better Give U Up”, "Go Back Home" and “Lying Together” and is a great LP from start to finish. The full project brings only one listed feature from a female vocalist listed as (((O))) on “Vibin’ Out” as the 12-track album is just what we wanted to hear from FKJ on his debut. For those who enjoy this album we highly recommend seeing him live if you have the chance. Enjoy!

The Knocks Share Must Hear Chill House Single "Trouble" Feat. Absofacto

the knocks b/w

What first started out as a ballad turned into a groovy 3+ minute jam for New York duo The Knocks. The group's latest release, "Trouble" feat. Absofacto, is driven by a funky house bassline, helium-pitched vocals and summery piano chords that brighten up the piece. 

"We originally wrote the song with Abso in NYC at our studio as a slow, piano ballad, at 90 bpm. The idea was to write something that felt melancholy and classic. After we laid down the original idea, he left and we started experimenting with it -- treating it like a sample -- totally chopping it up and flipping it." -- The Knocks

"Trouble" is out now on Big Beat/Neon Gold and will also be part of the duo's upcoming EP due Feb. 3. Until then, stream their new tune below and enjoy!

Stream Childish Gambino's Soulful Second Single “Redbone” Off Upcoming Album

Childish Gambino Press shot Curtain

Childish Gambino is back with another single “Redbone” off his forthcoming album Awaken, My Love! due Dec. 2. This follows up the project’s addicting lead single “Me and Your Mom” that heard Childish explore a new, rock-influenced sound we haven’t heard from him previously.  

We knew Childish was experimenting with new sounds following fan’s reactions of his PHAROS shows earlier this year, but we didn’t really know what to fully expect. “Redbone” finds Childish channeling his inner soul as he sings buttery-smooth falsetto vocals over a funky, rolling live instrumental production. His voice on this sounds so different from his previous releases it had us asking if it was really him singing at first. We’re loving his exploration of new sounds on these new singles and cannot wait for the full album. Enjoy!
