If you’ve been thinking, “I need some new Barrel Brothers music in my life” lately, then today is like winning the musical lottery. Skyzoo and Torae are back with a trunk-rattling new joint called The Get Up, and it may or may not leave you needing a neck brace when you’re done listening. Send your medical bills to producers M31RK & Peter Haslanger, as they are responsible for the hard-hitting, bass-heavy composition that drives the song, and as long as you’re at it, you might as well also charge Sky and Tor for their hard-hitting rhymes. The Get Up is the first single from the soundtrack for the upcoming documentary DEMOS, which will also feature new music from Rapper Big Pooh, Planet Asia, Tanya Morgan and many more. In the meantime, be sure to check out Torae’s latest mixtape, Admission of Guilt, right here on DJBooth, and keep an eye our for the DEMOS documentary; it looks like it’s shaping up to be a game changer.
