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. 2015 was a big year for Illvis Freshly, winning Best Urban/Electronic Recording for their song “On The Breaks” and Group of The Year from the Vancouver Island Music Awards.
