Whenever one of your favourite artists release new music, the initial reaction is always nervous excitement. Having set the bar at dizzying heights with so many of their previous releases there's always a tiny shred of fear that your ears could be underwhelmed.
We went through this familiar cycle of emotions with FKJ's latest release 'Is Magic Gone' and within seconds we felt like fools for ever doubting the Parisian funk connoisseur. We can gladly confirm that no, magic is not gone.
Opening up with soft vocals and charming jazz keys, the build up is both patient and mesmerising, gradually teasing in his signature synth soundscapes before you're dropped most satisfyingly into a crisp beat, purring bass line and bright guitar chords.
Trust us, this is as smooth as they come.
