Download the iLLPHONiCS EP Before Tonight's Release Show


  • From the cover of the iLLPHONiCS' Reality: Check EP.

Since its early days back in 2006, when the iLLPHONiCS was working out of the recording studio at Webster University, the group has shaped and molded its style into the well-polished hybrid genre that its members now call "hip-hop fusion." While the iLLPHONiCS may lean on a variety of different musical influences from track to track, it does so without compromising a distinctive sound; the group's funkadelic basslines and soaring guitars are anchored unremittingly by lead-man Larry "Fallout" Morris' melodic, staccato rhyme-spitting.

The group will release its new EP tonight at Broadway Oyster Bar (736 South Broadway, 314-621-8811) at 9 p.m -- cover is $6.

Go Because: The band is giving out free copies of its new EP Reality: Check to the first 100 entrants. Plus, it'll help cover expenses for a pilgrimage to Austin for SXSW this year.
