Jeremih’s ‘Birthday Sex’ gets the remix it deserves by way of Jerry Folk
Norwegian beat maker Jerry Folk has been steadily building his catalog and stacking his chips since his arrival on the scene a few short years ago, most recently coming off of his Purple Evenings mixtape earlier this year. The multifaceted producer calls Next Wave Records home, a fitting imprint for his unique creations that proudly wear their Los Angeles influence on their sleeve. Folk has carved out a reputation as a skilled remixer, and his latest continues his hot streak with a slick remix of Jeremih’s 2009 hit “Birthday Sex.” Delivering a soulful spin on Jeremih’s chart-topping bedroom ignitor, Jerry Folk flips the track into a dreamy electronic R&B hybrid that complements the original mix perfectly.
The remix comes with a handful of other recent rework efforts that include takes on Post Malone, Justin Bieber, and others, as Jerry Folk rides a considerable wave into 2018. Offering up a sleek, contemporary edit of “Birthday Sex” that has all the sensuality of the original with some impressive modifications, Jerry Folk drops off another one for the highlight reel just as the year comes to a close.
