Last summer, the SuperSmashBroz blessed the world with a magnificent, Massachusetts-bred compilation mixtape, Family Cookout. This summer, further ensuring that Boston has its vibes right, the SmashBroz are back once again to bring new talent to the spotlight in the form of Codename: Girls Next Door — a highly-anticipated collabroative effort from none other than Gin Mason and CHI. After receiving the first single from the project, “Girls Night“, just a few weeks back, I had a hunch that this project would be something special, but quite honestly, it exceeded any expectations I could have set for such a highly-talented duo.
Not only do Mason and CHI show us their most refined artistic selves on the final product for this one, but they also bring an entirely new wave of addictive energy to the table — just what we needed to end this summer on a bright note. Alongside only one feature from Michael Christmas and production credits from LDG, Maka, Tee-WaTT, the SuperSmashBroz, and KorHef, the cohesive sound and endless supply of infectious rhythms provide for 6 tracks of transportive music at the core of the project. That being said, Gin Mason and CHI are two of Massachusetts’ most talented rising talents, and it’s both a pleasure and privilege to watch them continue on their rises to the top.
Listen to Codename: Girls Next Door at the link below and thank the SuperSmashBroz for the alley-oop on this one!
