Billie Eilish – Six Feet Under (Jerry Folk Remix)
After taking a remixing hiatus for almost a year to focus on original material, Norwegian producer Jerry Folk is back with a spellbinding rework of singer Billie Eilish’s “Six Feet Under.”
The talented young producer gives a masterclass in atmosphere and restraint, and the track builds up a breathless, haunting presence beneath Eilish’s delicate vocals. Creeping along at a tantalizingly slow pace, Folk fills the space of the song with spectral chords and minimalistic fills that move with a confounding texture and tactility. Tension builds constantly in a gradual crescendo as more layers are added into the mix, but the song offers no release, opting instead to drift into somber organ chords while Eilish’s forlorn vocals echo away. With songs as good as this, Jerry Folk is definitely a name to watch.
