Jerry Folk funks up Lemaitre’s electronic-centric track, “Wait” in the best possible way. Both artists originate from Oslo, Norway, which has produced such acts as Lido and Cashmere Cat. There’s a lot of talent up there! In this mix, Jerry has completely reworked the song by adding groove-able bass and synth, while at the same time keeping just enough of the lyrics intact. He emphasizes a nu-disco style that is easy to vibe to.
Just groove with me. Don’t forget I don’t want to see you fade away.
Waiting seems impossible in today’s society. Instant gratification doesn’t come quickly enough! Have a question? Google has the answer right now. Want a package tomorrow? Pay a little extra and you’ll have it. And what’s this drone business? We will be receiving packages in minutes in the not-so-distant-future! With answers and fulfillments to our needs so accessible, it’s difficult to be content with the things out of our control- the things that require patience. Anticipation is good though. I tend to enjoy things more if anticipation leads me to the final result. The excitement of the build oftentimes adds pleasure to my experience. Think about it: instant gratification is easy, but is it the most fulfilling option? Sometimes, yes. Cravings are best fulfilled on the spot; but what about long-term gratification? Relationships, holidays, getting into college, getting a response to a letter? It’s in these situations where we have to exercise patience. If you ask yourself what the rush is, you’ll often come to find there isn’t one! So sit back and chill, and try not to worry about things out of your control. Try to let go of that 21st-century psyche that’s telling you to you need to know. Now.
