Live Review + Gallery: FKJ (Danforth Music Hall / Toronto, ON)

Currently on his sold-out North American tour, French multi-instrumentalist and producer Vincent Fenton, better known as French Kiwi Juice or “FKJ”, is truly a talent that needs to be seen to believe. The one-man army certainly knows how to give a dynamic and enriching performance, making it sound like an entire orchestra is on stage with him. Still riding high on his 2017 self-titled debut album, FKJ has gained quite the large following both commercially and critically.

FKJ played an interesting mix of songs, including “Lying Together”, “Skyline”, and “Die With A Smile”, all with improvised and extended instrumentation. The infectious nature of FKJ’s sampling, shredding guitar tones, and buttery vocals swept the hall. One of the more impressive features of his set, as mentioned before, was the fact FKJ was a lone man creating such big sounds. The French wizard seemed to move with ease as he looped both guitar and bass with synthesized keys. It is not a mystery as to why FKJ has seemed to be such a major influence on many in the House music scene. The way he is able to blend both Jazz and House into such an easily accessible form while also maintaining the technicality of both is truly something.
