"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."
-Calvin Cox, Riverfront Times
Named St. Louis's 'Best Hip-Hop Group of 2011' in the Riverfront Times, Illphonics has gained respect and admiration throughout the Midwest region and beyond due to their dynamic live show and progressive recordings. They have shared the stage with artists such as the Roots, Lupe Fiasco, Everclear, and RJD2, and they broke into the national festival scene in 2011, with performances at Wakarusa and South By Southwest. Their debut album, Illphonics Presents Sound, placed #36 on Vintage Vinyl’s (well-known record store in St. Louis) Top Selling CDs of 2009, making it the highest-grossing CD by an unsigned band that year.
