DJ Soko is set to release Domino Effect, an album he curated in the same way DJ Khaled curates his, only Soko adds more than high-volume ad-libs — he brings quality cuts and scratches and talent you don’t need to turn the FM on to find. Today, we get a new sound from the August 21 release with “Stand Up” featuring Guilty Simpson and Hassaan Mackey and production from Apollo Brown.
The emcees bravados are prevalent on the booming, boasting track, making sure the world knows the talent from Detroit doesn’t go unnoticed. This isn’t a song to be listened to when blue. Once you win the lottery, “Stand Up” is what plays when you look at the government worker and choose the “all at once option.” It’s what plays when you finally get the confidence to tell your girl you don’t really like The Bachelor. “Live n*ggas, stand up.”
Listen to and download “Stand Up” below for free, and pre-order Soko’s Domino Effect on Bandcamp.
