Leave it to Jerry Folk to take a pop single and funk it up. The Norwegian native is making big moves this winter with his North American “Foreign Affair Tour” alongside fellow producer SAINT WKND. These shows come off the heels of what was an undoubtedly great year for Folk in which he rocked SoundCloud with a string of refreshing remixes of his favorite tracks like Post Malone’s “Rockstar” and dropped his innovative Purple Feelings mixtape that landed him an honorable mention on the TSIS Top 20 Electronic Albums Of 2017 list (if only it were a full album!).
Now Jerry Folk has taken on Charlie Puth’s hit single “How Long”, chopping, distorting, and bending Puth’s vocals to make a versatile instrument that dominates the track with irresistible hooks and clever percussive sections. One of the most satisfying moments in the track comes near the end when Folk caps off an emotional vocal solo and slow build up with a layered breakdown of vocal chops that flawlessly breaks into an addictive beat accented by a high-pitched ding – like he’s celebrating he nailed the drop.
Catch Jerry Folk on tour in North America with SAINT WKND and be on the lookout for more amazing beats from the young producer. Enjoy!
