Optimus Sonus Optime Sonat
Genre bending hip-hop band.
With smart rhymes and soulful production, you can’t help but move and groove to the collective’s sound. We’re premiering the group’s “96to99,” which looks back on those pivotal years in rap.
iLLPHONiCS offer music that carries itself with a strut and swagger, but with the social awareness of hip-hop when it achieves its best intention. The St. Louis outfit has been grafting hard for the past few years, blending genres, avoiding cliches, and defining themselves beyond a typical scene.
With a fresh take on Hip Hop and Soul over conscious lyrics, St. Louis natives iLLPHONiCS celebrate 10 years strong with the premiere of their 5th studio album “Gone With The Trends“.
Their material is always crisp and their live shows are always on point. Consistency is key.
They’ve provided us with an uplifting first single entitled “What D’ Ya Like,” which blends everything we love about hip-hop, soul, R&B, and even alternative together. Fans of Anderson Paak and Gym Class Heroes will likely salivate over this one, and for good reason.
The group blends elements of hip-hop with R&B, soul, and alternative, and have created a sonically uplifting piece of art in their new album. Their soulful yet energetic sounds are just what the world needs in such a time of chaos and peril.
Their highly infectious music incorporates elements of hip hop, R&B, soul, pop, jazz and funk, with lush, stylish instrumentals and harmonic choruses that call to mind Earth, Wind & Fire and Kool & the Gang.
