An accomplished artist and rising star of the Parisian electronic scene, FKJ, also known as French Kiwi Juice, is one of the flag bearers of the New French House musical genre. A native of Tours, but now based in Paris, FKJ is a leading talent and one of the most emblematic artists of the Roche Musique team that he joined in 2012 via his long-time friend Jean Janin, a.k.a. Cézaire, artist and founder of the successful Parisian record label.

Trained as a sound engineer for the cinema, while at the same time being a self-taught musician, French Kiwi Juice started with a first EP, 'The Twins', released by Roche Musique at the end of 2012. Then followed the single 'Lying Together', acclaimed by the blogosphere, and a second EP 'Time For A Change' (Roche Musique, July 2013), which was unanimously praised by music critics (Ofive, Trax Mag, The Sound You Need, Earmilk, Indie Shuffle...). Thanks to millions of plays and views on different media, songs such as 'So Much To Me' or 'Instant Need' have already become classics of the French house genre.

With incredibly groovy loops, classy hip-hop rhythms, gloriously funky basslines and richly colorful synth sounds, FKJ's music stands up to comparison with the masters of the genre. Now established as one of the major artists of the French musical scene, French Kiwi Juice's stage reputation has soared thanks to his inspiring and original DJ Sets, but above all thanks to the driving rhythms and and dazzling improvisation that characterise his Live Sets. Apart from the quality of his musical selection when DJing, FKJ, known as Vincent Fenton to his friends, is also an eternal source of pure creativity. This young man, just 24 years old, is a multi-instrumentalist who is permanently in search of the perfect chord.

Child of the GFunk, raised in rhythmic powerful and groovy of the years 80’et and 90‘, Cézaire is for the electronic music, that was the movement French Touch at the dawn of the new millennium, the permanent musical renewal doubled of imperceptible one note of freshness.

Influenced by the tones of the New disco, in the confunts of the Funk, the House, but also and especially the Hiphop, a fan of which he is from the very beginning, Cézaire, AkA Jean Janin, quickly felt the obligation to put on the clothes of manager of label, motivated by the irresistible urge to share the musical creations of the young talented and promising artists with which he surrounded himself, to establish today, one of the most fashionable Parisian labels of moment. Roche Musique is then born course of the year 2012, carried by a multitude of artists in the colored tones the most brilliant of their generation, and door of which Cézaire wants banner.

Motorcycle. Cocktail. Glasses. Flowery shirt and mustache. Everything is ready for the arrival of the last miracle of the Parisian stable Roche Musique, which celebrates this month the signature of his new artist DABEULL, of whom last EP Fonk Delight is available on the catalog of the label since last October 20th.

Musician, accomplished artist, but also and especially, child of the funk and the disco, DABEULL very fast turned to the musical and artistic production in which he evolves now for several years. At first official producer for a renowned Chief warrant officer, then half of the duet Donovans within which he made his weapons, David Saïd returns to us this time in his solo project, and delivers us surprising, fresh (cool) EP, to the colored tones and resolutely Funk. Dry Beat, «pitched» singing exercises, Bass funk highly groovy, and real professional of the analog synthesizers, this whiz kid of the musical production was engaged (surrendered) here in a creative exercise of high flight (theft): Fonk Delight is a return to basics of the sound engineering of the 80s, in the inspired and heady melodies, which will not miss to delight the most purist of us.
