Hip-Hop, Be-Bop Soup at the Monkey

Treologic will be returning to Champaign Thursday, July 10th at Cowboy Monkey after a long absence from the CU music scene. Featuring a strong hip-hop medium as the foundation of their sound, Treologic also touches genres like gospel and jazz, combining old music with new.
Lyrically, Billa Camp takes cues from Black Thought of the Roots, NWA, Common and Talib Kweli, conveying a positive, uplifting feeling that is lost on much more main stream hip-hop. Instrumentalists Boyd, Spata and Loiselle are the ones who create the unique flavor that is Treologic, pushing their gospel-like choruses and world beats to get the crowd peacefully grooving to the entire sound that makes this Chicago group organic and raw.
Treologic has won many awards throughout their career being a Red Eye Best Band Finalist and a MOBfest showcase artist. Along the way they have supported some amazing acts like Talib Kweli and Mr. Liff, and they have made appearances at Wakarusa Music festival, as well as Summercamp. Treologic has been riding the cusp of stardom for a while, and hopefully their trips to both the East and West Coast will get their name known across this great corn-fielded land.
The group used to be touring through CU frequently to support their second release, Thank You, Lenny, but their visits have been less frequent, spending six months with family and in the studio recording their third disc, Colabo. Slated for store release mid September, the new album will be showcasing the many collaborations the band is known for, featuring the likes of Beviso, Hakeem Huunter, and CU’s own Connor Grant. The band will be selling the album at the show before its release date, so make sure to stop by and find out what the band has been up to the past six months.
