Synth notes float steadily over a slow-moving cinematic soundscapes interspersed with jubilant piano chords—collaborators Chazwick Bundick and keyboardist Anthony Ferraro of chillwave progenitor Toro y Moi, and Frenchman FKJ, or French Kiwi Juice, present: “A Moment of Mystery.” The self-titled track, released on May 19 via Mom+Pop, is one of three piano-laden works. The Paris-based producer’s project is a refreshing, summery listen which also guests Grammy Award-winning artist Carlos Santana, who lends his dextrous guitar mastery to the sultry Latin-infused composition, “Greener.”
Only days away from releasing new album Vincent on June 10, the artist continues to share snippets of music and photography ahead of the upcoming LP on his socials—footage of the producer sitting at his piano at dusk, surrounded by flora, offer a speckling of insight into what is expected to be FKJ’s most luscious, carefully produced album to date. Listen to the three-tiered offering below.
