Jerry Folk unveils a scintillating single, ‘Heart’

Norwegian electronic producer Jerry Folk, known for his debut album Dotted Red with side project FENGSEL, dropped his latest single ‘Heart’ on April 5th, 2024, via Folkestad Recordings. Notable for remixing artists like Billie Eilish and producing for names like Alina Baraz, he’s earned praise from various publications and BBC Radio 6’s Tom Ravenscroft. With over 350 million streams, he’s toured the US, opened for Odesza, and played at Coachella. Influenced by James Blake and others, his new release appeals to fans of PinkPantheress, James Blake, and Sam Gellaitry.

Inspired by early 2000s UK club music with a mix of hard-hitting drums and soft, sultry R&B vocals courtesy of Australian artist Chloe Kae, ‘Heart’ is a track that is both wistful and danceable – a potent combination. Expertly-spliced vocal samples are peppered throughout the track alongside Chloe Kae’s plaintively-sung lyrics, and a sweet synth winds its way around the song as the contrastingly gritty breakbeat drives the entire sonic experience into hypnosis. 

Jerry Folk shared: “I made ‘Heart’ last year in a period where I was making a lot of melancolic dance music. It’s the second single of my upcoming EP which is Inspired by early 2000s electronic music from the uk that mixes club music and r&b vocals. I sent the track to Chloe Kae from the australian duo “Kllo” and she sent me back some really beautiful vocals to go with it. The goal was to make something melancholic but hopeful.”
