Lying Together by FKJ


He goes by French Kiwi Juice but it’s just easier to call him FKJ. Little else is known about this French producer other than his music is a synthed out mix of neo-soul, R&B, and hip-hop.  This is late night, top down, cruising down a city street kind of music.  His single, “Lying Together,” off a multi-artist club album Electro Labs 01 is a loop of heightened vocals, funky melodies, and a hint of the mystery and intoxication the city emits when the sun goes down.  FKJ already has one EP under his belt and his sophomore EP, Take Off, will hit virtual stores on July 21st.  Enjoy.

Hold On We’re Going Home (Drake Cover) by ASTR


It’s rare when a cover is so unique that it creates its own identity.  Leave it to ASTR to be one of those rarities with its cover of the Drake track, “Hold On We’re Going Home.”  This may be the most top 40-ish track to creep its way onto EWH (and it does sting a little), but if any band could do it, it would be the sultry, synth pop duo, ASTR.  Focusing on sharpening the beat and flooding the track with waves of lush synths and lead singer Zoe’s foggy, understated intonation, ASTR turns “Hold On We’re Going Home” from standard pop fare into R&B perfection.  Enjoy.
