There’s something to be said about an artist who is capable of churning out a consistent succession of high-quality remixes of popular hits, remixes which allow fans to enjoy their favorite tunes in a completely different, yet equally satisfying fashion. One producer who’s at the top of that category is the young Jerry Folk, who first graced us with his catchy beats nearly one year ago with captivating edits of ZZ Ward’s 365 Days, Jill Scott’s Daydreamin, and The Fugees’ Ready Or Not.
After attracting disco lovers everywhere with these groovy releases, Folk has kept up the trend with more recent takes on Mario Winans’ I Don’t Wanna Know and Lemaitre’s Wait–both of which were featured in recent Disco Diaries playlists. Even better, all of his remixes are available as free downloads here.
After grooving with Jerry Folk over the past year, we are extremely honored to have the Norwegian remix extraordinaire curate his own edition of Disco Diaries. Below you will find his favorite jams at the moment, along with personal commentary. Needless to say, his music taste is right on par with his production skills.
Hot Natured feat. The Egyptian Lover – Isis (Magic Carpet Ride) [Warner UK]
One of my favorites at the moment. The song is so catchy, yet you can hear it still remains true to Hot Natured’s underground roots.
Kasso – Walkman
This song is actually from the ’80s, but it’s still so relevant. Definitely worth a listen. The longer you listen, the more impressive it gets.
Fehrplay – Everywhere You Go [Ultra]
If I was to choose a set of chords that would define my mood the rest of my life, it would be these. Fehrplay is a fellow Norwegian, and this song is beyond good.
Lindstrøm – Vōs-sākō-rv [Feedelity]
Lindstrøm is one of the pioneers of electronic music in norway along with Todd Terje. If you are not familiar with him already, this song will without doubt get you hooked.
Marcus Marr – The Music (Vinyl Mix) [DFA]
This is a sick piece of art. It’s a nine-minute adventure through so many different atmospheres. I don’t know why this guy isn’t famous.
