• 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.

  • Get to know: SO {Standing Ovation}

    Tonight we bring you a duo that goes by the name of SO (Standing Ovation). These artists are a lot different than a lot of the artists we post on our site. They are styled as “Andre 3000 flying on a killer ecstasy peyote cocktail”. The project takes you far into a different world of wickedness. The dark vibes this duo gives us is just unreal.

    In a review article on All Hip Hop, the duo’s style is described as, “Aside from the genre-bending sounds, there is something distinctly appealing about the SO experience that is sure to capture even the most hardened imagination.”

    The project will definitely leave you wanting more.

    – Stay Tuned

  • Speed [music video] – Standing Ovation – @_SO_SO_SO_SO (@BronzeBabyShoes + @iamTheCharacter)

    Standing Ovation is a hiphop duo comprised of Bronze Baby Shoes who’s the producer of all the music and The Character who’s the lyricist flowing over all the beats. Think of them like a more modern day Eric B / Rakim, Will Smith / Jazzy Jeff or like a Macklamore and Ryan Lewis type group. Their music style sounds more like hardcore, backpack rap, infused with wicked funk, edm elements mixed perfectly over pungent, dueling lyrics. The Standing Ovation sound is quite extraordinary and unique.
