Twice the music, twice the trouble, twice the fun. Jerry Folk has released two hard-hitting singles on the same day, both of which have been released under the Folkestad Recordings label. First impressions are everything, and this blew ours away. My, oh, my, do we have a lot to discuss. Let’s delve deep and figure out what makes these records tick.
Let us begin with ‘sadsongwtf’. The single conveys a moody atmosphere reminiscent of an era of darker-sounding hip-hop. Minor keys evoke a melancholy that we find ourselves pleasantly lost in. It’s easy to think that XXXTentacion or juice WRLD would have heard the melodic 808 kick in and memorable snare pattern snap and immediately felt inspired to drop a hot 16.
‘All The Things’ is the complete opposite. Degenerating 8bit plucks carry that blissful videogame quality. We fixate on the stuttered synths, which pan across our field of hearing as if to notify us that Jerry Folk has levelled up. What a fun experience we had listening to these twin tracks.
Jerry Folk changes and switches up his genrescape with latest single ‘U Got it’. This track proves to us why Jerry Folk is a master in his craft, as he has the ability to shift his sound whenever he feels led to with charisma and undeniable talent. ‘90s RnB vocal stylings merge together with intoxicating trap beats that are hard to resist from the start.
Previously featured on our blog (read full feature) with the single ‘On My Way (ft. Bearson)’, we previously shared: “We love it when an artist reinvents themselves and we like to eagerly sit on the sidelines, watching which new way the producer may turn. Jerry Folk, with the launch of his side project, FENGSEL, has just done this. While his previous single, ‘Everything’, was in a closer style to his older work, ‘On My Way ft. Bearson’ (released today via Folkestad Recordings) takes a turn towards the indie-pop.”
This Folkestad Recordings release sets the atmosphere for rainy weather with its pensive yet sultry beat that make the perfect background for a creative mood. ‘U Got it’ takes a more serious tone compared to the light and playful predecessor ‘On My Way (ft. Bears
on)’ , making Jerry Folk an artist to watch as his sound is always shifting with panache.
Pagan music producer Das Mörtal has given us a taste of his new offering, album Miami Beach Witches with new single ‘It Comes’ via Libson Lux Records. This anticipated album release will be unleashed on Halloween day this year. For fans of all things mystical with a huge dose of goth, ‘It Comes’ will be a stellar addition to your Halloween playlist.
Das Mörtal speaks about the new single: “’It Comes’ is a Wiccan lullaby for the lost souls. A slow heartbeat driven song with a deep buzzing bass that welcomes the elder gods into your dreams”
The music producer’s claim to fame is his album Hotline Miami II, which has over 8 million streams. Inspired by sci-fi and horror films alike, Das Mörtal has worked on two noteworthy horror film scores being Naissance d’un Zombie and the feature film Deadcon.
