Souls of Mischief were one of the top talents to emerge in Hip Hop in the '90s, blazing through the strong Oakland scene and emerging in 1993 with their debut, 'Til Infinity. That album and its follow-up did OK commercially but more importantly established them as one of the more creative bands in Hip Hop's underground. The Souls have returned as an independent act with their own label and have released the powerful and energetic Trilogy: Conflict, Climax, Resolution, which once again spotlights the group's innovative lyrical and vocal approach, not to mention their unique musical and beat vision. The group use some of the aesthetics of old school Hip Hop, but they are more concerned with looking at new ways to approach the music to take it one step beyond the expected.
