Via Bandcamp – Big Daddy Suff .. back at it again!
Berlin-based producer, beatmaker, and all-around big papa Suff Daddy returns with an irresistibly-bouncy instrumental long player to herald in the new year, aptly titled “Basically Sober.”
Although it will be almost two years to the day since his last solo endeavor, 2020’s “Pompette,” Suff Daddy has kept busy. The prolific, Berlin-based, globally renown producer presents “Basically Sober,” the perfect album to encapsulate the feelings of the last couple years and an aptly named follow up to “Pompette” (‘tipsy’ in French). The instrumental album combines an ingenious, R&B / Hip-Hop laid-back vibe within a pulsing, electronic aesthetic that is full of bubbly beats, syncopated drums and synthesized grooves to keep your body grooving. The album’s stunning artwork is provided by the inimitable Andreas Samualsson from Gothenburg (www.andreassamuelsson.com), perfectly matching the albums sound, and brought to life via label-mate Robert Winter & his Die Ottos crew.
The 1st single, “Trouble in Wackyland Pt. II” is a doozy! Super bouncy, featuring arpeggiated, pulsing synths, polyrhythmic percussion and an almost woozy, bubbly vibe, this synth-forward tune brings together lo-fi beats and uplifting R&B within an electronic framework, perfectly encapsulating the infectious grooves and beats to be found in “Basically Sober”.
As Suff says of the album, “These beats basically made themselves. They all just got out, I don’t even remember the process. It sounds cheesy, but they really are a reflection of my state of mind at that moment. It’s been a fucking great time.” With the way the world has been turning, it’s best to be Basically Sober. Releasing February 25th, 2022.
