Craving a mental vacation? Just hit play on FKJ‘s latest single, sit back in your chair and let his mellow production stylings carry you far away from your worries and cares. Waiting, the French beatsmith’s debut feature on our pages, is about as as smooth as it gets. Leisurely, handclap-laced percussion, fluid guitar riffs, luminous keys and tweaked samples intermingle to form the record’s headphone-ready backdrop, which Michigan-based singer Madelyn Grant proceeds to bless with some mellow, yet passionate vocals. If this laid-back jam’s whet your appetite for more, be sure to cop FKJ’s Take Off EP when it drops July 21, via Rochette Musique. In fact, why not pre-order the set now on iTunes?
