Norwegian beats-master and producer Jerry Folk drops his first original single of 2017, the alluring Purple Feelings featuring the soulful vocals of Rainsford. The tune arrives via Folkestad Recordings and precedes the release of the Purple Evenings mixtape, which will come out in early June.
The innovative, but accessible artist has made a name for himself by performing at A-list music fests like Coachella and CRSSD and releasing his debut EP, The Kids Tape. He’s also supported Jai Wolf on a nationwide tour and remixed other prominent artists like Billie Eilish and Oh Wonder.
Folk makes beautiful use of singer-songwriter Rainsford’s captivating vocals on Purple Feelings, adding cool drops, slo-mo grooves, shiny percussion, and electronic scintillation. Folk explains, “I wanted to make something pretty that also bangs… I met Rainsford and we did a couple very good sessions, and one of the ideas we did fit perfectly for the beat.”
