The summer of 2022 is shaping up to be very hot for Roche Musique. After Darius’ album, Oasis (which draws inspiration from Marvin Gaye) back in April, the French label is releasing FKJ’s emotive second album, just five years after his first album French Kiwi Juice. After settling in the Philippines after the pandemic, the Franco-New Zealand musician explains that he has returned to instrumental sobriety, “with a rather slow BPM and the same mood from A to Z.” The first thing that strikes you about this album is its smooth consistency and coherence. It completely submerges you into a groove atmosphere from start to finish. It’s as if the 14 tracks have been cut from the same cloth.


Whichever vibe it goes for, be it jazzy (Way Out), Hollywood-esque (Us), laid back (New Life) or explicitly erotic (IHM), V I N C EN T is a classy album that’s always sincere. Also the guest artists slot in perfectly, whether that be on the contemplative Can’t Stop (Little Dragon), the intoxicating A Moment of Mystery (Toro y Moi), the incredible single Greener featuring Santana, or the earthy track Brass Necklace featuring June Marieezy (alias ((( O ))) ). FKJ explains: “My music here is much more contemplative. There are only deserted beaches and virgin forests. I compose the soundtrack based on what surrounds me. I’ve found pure euphoria, the joy of exploration.” A great listen from beginning to end. © Smaël Bouaici/Qobuz
