Representing the Next Wave family, Oslo-based Jerry Folk has popped off as a intriguing artist who embraces the historical range and flexibility of electronic music. Adding hints of vaporwave, house and funk in his tunes, Jerry Folk's signature is consistently groovy, yet polished, best known for his smooth remix of Oh Wonder's "Lose It". Additionally, his collaboration with ELOQ in "You Know" was what brought me to his attention initially. In that discovery, Jerry Folk shows his ability to develop a generally appealing future bass sound but with a deepened twist in his tactful make-ups.

In his latest, Jerry Folk has collaborated with Tommelie and WoodzSTHLM on "Stanley". The track is a whimsical tune that sets up an almost hypnotic listening to audiences. With the marrying of fluttering synths and pitched vocals, audiences can be expected to be drawn into another dimension. Listen to this especially if you have a solid pair of over ear headphones. A reminder of how a mosaic of sounds can induce particular feelings, the colourful nature of the track stands out as mesmerizing. The complexities and peculiar details found in the track are not to be missed and will certainly be a sweet treat to self-proclaimed audiophiles.
