Since joining forces under their SuckaSide guise just over a year ago, UK producers Sucka Timmy and B-Side have been on a music-making mission and their quest to fill folders with top-notch funk, soul and hip hop edits has been a most worthy one indeed. Their journey, to this point, sees them arrive at the fertile lands of Breakbeat Paradise Recordings and with them they have a brand new single Giving Up featuring the noblest wordsmith Kurnel MC, who portrays a message of resilience and staying focused in the face of adversity over an ultra-smooth bassline, a heavily sampled soul classic and a funky beat that has plenty of head-nodding potential. Much like what has gone before, this is another essential SuckaSide joint to add to the ever-growing collection!
On remix duties for this one is BBP founder BadboE and with a slight increase in tempo and a little more heat and intensity, you’ve got one for the party and one for the afters, win and indeed win!
While our focus is on SuckaSide, we must point you in the direction of their Unlicensed To Ill album of Beastie Boy’s edits and mashups that they released with LROY at the beginning of the year. The collab came about because of a deep love for the hip hop legends which, as you’re about to hear, plays out through all of the music on the album. If you’ve been looking to refresh your Beastie Boys edits collection, you can now do it in one fell swoop on the link below.
