Single Review | SO | Speed

SO, or {Standing Ovation} are a duo making distinct and varied music that crosses many borders. Comprised of Virginia based producer ‘Bronze Baby Shoes’ and Los Angeles vocalist/lyricist ‘The Character’, the pair were formerly known as Nine:Fifteen, before taking on their new moniker to further expand their  horizons with a complete experience that’s hard to match.

On new single ‘SPEED’, SO showcase their talent and ability when it comes to creating funky, atmospheric hip-hop. It’s rare to see two individuals respective skills mesh together so well, but SO work very well to create an intricate sound that balances melodies and vocals with a glossy production.

This song is packed full of passion and challenges any preconceptions of what hip-hop can be, with striking visuals to match. It’s the kind of track that will have you hitting repeat, to go and find that little rhythm that hasn’t been able to escape your head all day!

If SO keep creating music in the same vein as SPEED, with challenging and versatile elements then we think hip-hop is all the better for it.
