Felonious: onelovehiphop is dedicated to playing Hip Hop with a live band. The live instrumentation allows for an intricate musical texture featuring the pounding beats of Soulati (Tommy Shepherd), the reggae, latin, funk, and jazz bass lines of Illin Ills (Dylan Mills), KP's (Keith Pinto) melodic vocals and keys, MC's D.Wolf (Dan Wolf) and Infinite's (Carlos Aguirre) poetic and rapid-fire lyrics, and Jon Monahan's virtuoso guitar playing. KP steps out from behind his keys to rock the mic, while Soulati is able to play the drums and rap at the same time. Spontaneous freestyles and two of the freshest beat boxers on the West Coast (Soulati and Infinite) make Felonious: onelovehiphop's live show untouchable. Felonious also created the critically acclaimed theater piece Beatbox: A Raparetta at Theater Artaud in 2001. Beatbox: A Raparetta, written by Dan Wolf (D Wolf) and Tommy Shepherd (Soulati), is a theater piece in rhythm and rhyme, accompanied by beat box (vocal drum beats) and DJ Raw B. In development since 1995, Beatbox: A Raparetta has been produced in San Francisco, Oakland, New York Hip Hop Theater Festival and Hamburg, Germany. Felonious has shared the stage with The Roots, De La Soul, Big Daddy Kane, DJ Premier, Black Eyed Peas, Zion I, Living Legends, Radioactive, Crown City Rockers, Psychokinetics, Shotgun Wedding Quintet, Raw Deluxe, and Dynamic. Recorded in Hamburg Germany, "Up To Something" (2007) is the third album from San Francisco underground hip hop band Felonious. German producers DJ exel. Pauly's jazz and soul samples, ABCity's banging hip hop beats, and Capudelup's live instruments create 13 deep soulful tracks layered with the rhymes and harmonies of the Felonious MC's. Highlights include "The Music", "Lately", "Bulletproof", "Free", and "Cost of Living". This album is the result of a musical friendship between Hamburg and San Francisco, six years in the making. Felonious is currently in the studio working on their next album. Look for it in Fall 2007.
