Diplo Releases Alternate Version of ‘Stand For’ with Ty Dolla Sign
Ty Dolla $ign's "Stand For," co-produced by Diplo and DJ Dahi, is to be featured on the hip-hop artist's forthcoming album Free TC. Following its release on November 17, 2014, the track peaked at No. 10 on Billboard's r&b/hip-hop chart, and earned its own music video directed by creative collective The Sacred Egg and received a remix from famed hip-hop producer DJ Mustard.
Now, Diplo has released an alternate version of the track on his Soundcloud. Diplo writes on the track's page, "love this song i did with ty so much .. i thought id share this alternate version i had." This alternate demo applies a darker, more chilled-out rhythm. While this version is missing some of the 8-bit-sounding key progressions and effects added to the top of the track that you can hear in the original, the alternate version makes up for it and deep rumbling bass and its ambient touch, giving us an enjoyable new way to enjoy the hip-hop single.
You can purchase the original track on iTunes via Atlantic Recordings. Also, watch the music video for the original version of "Stand For" below.
