EDITORS’ NOTES

Paris-based producer Vincent Fenton trained as a movie sound engineer, which might explain the evocative layering and detail of his genre-splicing jams. Chopped, accelerated vocal samples build mesmerizing hip-hop patterns on “Go Back Home” and “Lying Together,” while the jazz/R&B of “Skyline” transports you into the sunshine with warm, rippling synths and beats that purr in the background like tropical wildlife. Meanwhile, “Why Are There Boundaries” is a moment of aching soul amid all the intricate electronica.

About FKJ

Paris-based producer Vincent Fenton creates mellow, sample-based electronic sounds under the name French Kiwi Juice, or FKJ for short. He started out working as a theater sound engineer while teaching himself the basics of music production at the same time. Finding a style within electronic music that melded the pulse of house with smoother organic elements, he and other artists on the Roche Musique label worked toward the development of an electronic subgenre of new French house near the start of the 2010s. A series of EPs arrived on the label, with The Twins showing up in 2012 and Time for a Change dropping the next year. A strong online profile served as the basis for much of FKJ's fame, and he developed a strong live set to match his studio output on-stage. The Take Off EP followed in 2014, and FKJ spent much of the next two years working toward the recording of a proper full-length, which arrived in March of 2017 as a self-titled long-player on the Believe Direct Limited label. ~ Fred Thomas
