:-: Illvis Freshly :-:
Illvis Freshly is a funky, bass heavy, hip-hop monster. They’ve blended the classic sample heavy hip hop sound of the 90s with live rock n roll, guitar, rapping, and turntablisim. The two MCs, Danimal House and Doc Zoo, bring high energy, raw, and unforgiving lyrics with crazy flows and a wide variety of content and themes. DJ Mt Doyle is always on point, scratching, mixing, and keeping the party live. Phil Lyons absolutely shreds the guitar, captivating the crowd with face melting riffs and his ridiculously entertaining antics. Illvis Freshly’s debut LP entitled “What Chu Know About Illvis?” received huge support from the world-wide hip hop, funk and electronic scenes. A diverse collection of remixes from artists stretching from Vancouver Island all the way to the UK and New Zealand helped establish Illvis Freshly as one of the most progressive, accessible and fun acts in Canadian hip hop. This momentum was recognized in 2015, as Illvis Freshly won Best Urban/Electronic Recording for their song “On The Breaks” and Group of the Year from the Vancouver Island Music Awards. In November 2016 they released their sophomore album, “Illennials,” a take on our current state of affairs regarding everything from politics to the disenfranchised millennial generation. The album charted on numerous campus radio stations across Canada and also received commercial plays, with “Upside Down ft. Caleb Hart” being selected as the January single for Victoria radio station The Zone 91.3’s Band of the Month program. Illvis Freshly continued their streak of success at the 2016 VIMAs, again winning Group of the Year and again winning Best Urban/Electronic Recording, this time for “Upside Down ft. Caleb Hart”. 2017 was another groundbreaking year for Illvis Freshly, completing their first extended tour, playing their first shows in both Alberta and California, and perhaps most importantly, cooking up a whole new batch of funky tunes for their upcoming project in 2018.
