Listen to FKJ’s sensual “Higher In Love” ft. Damon Trueitt

FKJ, or French Kiwi Juice, has one of the most distinct sounds out there.

Listen to Penguin Prison cover Lionel Richie’s “All Night Long”

Lionel Richie‘s “All Night Long” is a straight summer time classic that still sounds awesome over 30 years since its release.  Penguin Prison‘s cover doesn’t really change much to the original apart from a faster, harder hitting beat.  This cover the first non-remix song I’ve heard from Penguin Prison, and caught me off guard because...
