Hip-hoppers Stanley Odd and the Electric String Orchestra bring force and grandeur to panoramic soundscapes
Currently riding high after rave reviews for their second album Reject, Edinburgh alternative hip-hop sextet Stanley Odd are winning fans well beyond their core genre audience – not least for their inspirational live shows, matching frontman Solareye’s thrilling verbal pyrotechnics with masterly ensemble musicianship. Here they unveil a brand-new collaboration with renegade classical 12-piece the Electric String Orchestra, lending yet more force and grandeur to the band’s panoramic soundscapes. “Conscious hip-hop with a tartan lick and a modern Scottish sensibility…comes close to genius.” (Sunday Herald)
Mystery Juice’s fanatical cult following might struggle to define the all-conquering essence of their heroes’ sound, but once experienced live, the Edinburgh foursome’s filthy psychedelic funk/blues, ablaze with squalls of electric fiddle and spliced with street-verse vocals, needs no further explanation.
