Truly standing out in a crowd isn’t always the easiest task to accomplish. Even more so a challenge when the crowd itself is full of successful individuals. Herein lies the challenge for a Norwegian producer. Talent the likes of Kygo, Cashmere Cat, & Lido among a host of other producers call Norway their home. If you take a moment to think on how to compete with these powerhouse producers, you will begin to understand the daunting task other Norwegian producers face. Enter Jerry Folk, a man who has taken the challenge head on.
Young and Talented
At the tender age of 22, Jerry Folk has become more successful than most others achieve in their lifetime. Within the past three years, Folk has managed to successfully remix huge names such as Chromeo and ZZ Ward. A stand out among his remix collection came two years ago with Oh Wonder’s “Lose It” . The track has pulled over 28 million streams on Soundcloud alone.
After continued success on his remix work, Folk began to focus on his original work. Quickly his signature style became recognizable. A blend of funky, deep, and nu-house beats began to fill the artist’s page with life. With each track his fan base continued to grow larger and more dedicated.
In addition to an impressive list of remixes and originals, Jerry Folk began to take on some of the most iconic stages during his first headlining North America tour back in 2016. Starting off with an impressive set at Coachella’s Do LaB stage, the young producer made his way across the country. After three months on the road, he successfully ended the tour at none other than Camp Bisco.
Purple Evenings Mixtape
Things have only continued to pick up for the burgeoning artist. His most recent release, the Purple Evenings Mixtape, solidifies his reputation as an original producer. I personally have had “Money” and “What U Know About Yourself” on repeat for the past couple days. The whole mixtape itself is a very laid back and beautifully produced collection of tracks. Perfect for a slow ride during the evening or laying by the poolside, the 9 tracks will take you on a smooth glide through a bright sonic landscape.
Jerry Folk will be joining us for a soulful set this Sunday at the MĀYĀ Dayclub, July 9th. Spots for this show are selling out quickly so be sure to grab your FREE with RSVP spot here before the price raise. For more information on the event as well as giveaways, check out the event’s page here.
