Stanley Odd

“The collective’s impeccable, beat-heavy hip hop is more spacious, experimental and fired-up than ever – and you’ll be hard pushed to hear a better use of ‘glaikit’ anywhere in the rap canon.” The List

Rarely, if ever, has a Scottish hip-hop act won such a wide fan-base in such a short time as Edinburgh’s Stanley Odd. Formed just three years ago amid the Scottish capital’s close-knit, genre-blurring music scene, the six-piece have spread their inspirational brand of musical good news – matching Solareye’s brilliantly eloquent yet impish MCing with masterly musicianship and powerhouse beats – to a uniquely diverse swathe of converts, via their debut album Oddio and a hardworking schedule of incendiary live shows. They’ve opened for the likes of Arrested Development, Asian Dub Foundation, Sage Francis and Easy Star All-Stars, in amongst headline appearances including T in the Park, Edinburgh’s Hogmanay, the Insider festival, Wickerman and Celtic Connections.
