Wild Belle is a Chicago based ska funk band that consists of sibling duo Elliot and Natalie Bergman. They released “Giving Up On You” a few months ago which is their latest single to be featured on their upcoming album Dreamland due later this year. This track was inspired by Natalie’s recent break up with her boyfriend which has very catchy relatable lyrics and an addictive ska beat. They turned to Brooklyn native producer Ticklah (aka Victor Axelrod) for the remix treatment. Ticklah is a founding member of Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings, Antibalas Afrobeat Orchestra, and the Easy Star All-Stars and has contributed to the success of Dub Side of the Moon which is one of the most successful reggae albums of the 21st century. Ticklah’s take on “Giving Up On You” is a laidback reggae groove that fuses so well with Natalie’s soul chilling vocals. Check it out below.
