Solareye on Saturday 26th May 2018
Solareye (MC with East Coast collective Stanley Odd, here going solo) confirms his place as one of the most talented and creative rap forces in Scotland today. His stream of consciousness rhymes are inventive, thoughtful, angry and always give up arresting images, both lyrical and musical.
Former frontman of the much-missed live band D.O.P.E. (Disciples Of Panic Earth); veteran performer with a whole host of live improv bands and at open mics all over Edinburgh and Glasgow, Solareye has a confident, natural flow, combined with an innate gift for storytelling.
This debut offering is straight-up rap music that will appeal to jazz junkies, funk fans and hip-hop headz alike. Relying heavily on live instrumentation, ‘Somniloquy’ is a direct shot to the heart: not just for hip-hop fans, but music lovers in general.
This is hip-hop more in tune with the proletariat poems of Burns, and bred with the gritty prose of contemporary laureates such as Welsh and Kelman. Hip-hop is merely the bed for this socially conscious somniloquist.
