Hailing from the cold wonderland of Norway, Jerry Folk is a tender 19 years old, but don’t let his age fool you as this young artist has a prowess in the studio well beyond his years. He first surfaced with a deep-driven house revamp of disco powerhouses, the Fugees’ smash hit “Ready Or Not.” Stripping away the joyous nature of the original to lead way for haunting synth melodies and eerie chord progressions, the Norwegian house maestro made this disco classic his own by injecting his own style into the original while maintaining its funky foundation.
-Lucas Sachs, “Jerry Folk: A Modern Day Disco Ambassador”
Recently, I’ve felt incredibly nostalgic and while looking for remixes of hits from the early 2000’s (is 15 years long enough ago for me to say I’m nostalgic?) and stumbled across Jerry Folk’s remix of Baby Bash’s “Suga Suga” and lord was I over the moon. If you tell me you dislike that song then you’re lying…everybody gets down to that chorus of “Sugar how you get so high.” Sach’s commentary of Folk’s particular style is dead on as he seems to be able to harness untameable dance energy in each track.
It’s also impressive how he seems to transverse every genre from the Fugee’s to ZZ Ward and back again. His most recent remix of Oh Wonder’s “Lose It” has been trending on Soundcloud and for a good reason. It is:
“a funky nu-disco / deep house dance hit incorporating a funk-centric bassline and upbeat guitar chords.”
