Fans can never get enough of that fresh squeezed French Kiwi Juice. The visionary producer, singer/songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist otherwise known under his acronym, FKJ, has just unleashed a carpentry of a tune with “Risk.” The brand new single, which came rather out of left field today, features vocals from frequent J. Cole collaborator, Bas.
FKJ did previously announce a new tune coming via his Twitter, but fans had little idea about the exact release date and even smaller clues over the featured collaborator. Bas’ stripped-back vocals and unique hip-hop flavor set the tone on the ultra-chill 4-minute track. As FKJ builds the track layer by layer, instrument by instrument,”Risk” showcases the French producer’s musical prowess in new and unseen ways. From the subtle pluck of an electric guitar string, to subtle percussive kicks and soft keyboard strokes, to bright synths, fans can count on the fact that “Risk” is built from the ground up. No build ups, no drops, just FKJ doing his thing in the studio.
Half experimental, half indie-blues, and wholly authentic, the track begs to be played on repeat in any occasion no matter the time of day. Whether it’s soft, ambient background music soundtracking your morning routine, or winding down from a long day that you want, FKJ has just the stuff to fill one’s cup. Not to mention, the new track arrives as the lead single to FKJ’s incoming EP, which he’s revealed as Ylang Ylang. The project is set to land November 12.
