Herein lies the challenge for a Norwegian producer. However, Jerry Folk has built up a reputation for producing melodic and soulful deep house grooves that are as nostalgic as they are fresh.

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.
Fusing disco, hip-hop and funk
Drawing inspiration from the world around him he fuses disco, hip-hop and funk to create his own unique flavor of dance music. Two years back his ‘Suga Suga (Jerry Folk Remix)’ made its way to #1 on Hypemachine, receiving over 1 million plays and he is only scratching the surface of his production ability.
Folk has developed and continues to experiment with his style and has already made significant strides in his professional career for several years. A stand out among his remix collection came two years ago with Oh Wonder’s “Lose It”. The track pulled over 28 million streams on Soundcloud alone.
An artist on the rise
Proving to be an artist on the rise, we know there is much more to come from this buzzing young producer. Though his close attention to funk and R&B, often off the beaten path for most EDM producers, the synthesis of these genres has become an essential element to Folk’s dynamic sound.
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.
