Jerry Folk has become a favorite of ours over the past couple of years, with 2017 no doubt being his most explosive year yet. The Norway-born producer and vocalist has maintained a spree of unique releases over the past few months, from his eclectic Purple Evenings mixtape we premiered in June to his recent remix of Lemaitre’s “Higher” just last month. Today Jerry Folk keeps the remix streak going with an incredible take on Post Malone’s “Rockstar” feat. 21 Savage.
Besides the familiar vocals (which Folk chops up and edits impeccably), this rework is in a smooth, funky realm entirely unique from the original. The producer recruited Los Angeles-based artist Heavy Mellow for some infectious guitar chords that pair perfectly with the simple percussion and subdued production. Folk takes the entire mood of the release deeper with an unexpected hip-hop switch mid-track, only to brighten things up once again with a light synth melody at the end. Check it out below and enjoy!
