Gio Shyne – “Nonono” (Prod. Christian Yoon)

By: Shamus Hill

The intergalactic combination of Gio Shyne and Christian Yoon grasps airwaves once again — this time with an alluring single titled “Nonono”.

Towards the beginning of 2019, Gio made it known that he was going to be releasing a large quantity of music over the course of the year. He’s held true to this — dropping singles like “Gully”, “Bliss”, and more that have really strengthened the Dorchester native’s discography.

Christian Yoon has been responsible for the production featured on the majority of Gio Shyne’s releases, and following a listen through “Nonono” — you’ll understand exactly why this is so. Each instrumental he crafts unleashes a new side of Gio’s artistry that was previously untapped. Whether it’s fearless raps or downbeat melodies, each Gio Shyne track unpacks something new, so be on the lookout for what’s next to come.

Gio $hyne – “Angelz” [Prod. A0rta]

By: Seamus Fay

If you’ve been following Graduation Music for some time now, it goes without saying that at one point or another, you’ve probably stumbled upon the name Gio $hyne. Hailing from Dorchester, this rising act has always been on my radar as a noteworthy young talent and a true testament to the promise of the city’s music scene. Today, he hits our pages yet again with a slow-burning new single entitled “Angelz”. Produced by A0rta, this might just be one of $hyne’s finest offerings to date. His artistry is becoming increasingly refined with each release, and we’ve noticed immense growth from the Dorchester native in recent months.

That said, “Angelz” seems to work so well mainly due to the melancholy, tripped-out sound and feel. $hyne slows his deliveries and is sure to ride the dimly-lit mood with hypnotic cadences, offering a lyrical performance that perfectly fits the bill in this very way. With songs like this one to act as support, it goes without saying that Gio $hyne’s sound has the ability to make waves far beyond the borders of Dorchester, and to see that success, I can’t wait. Also notable, this track arrives as the follow-up to the anthemic “Buzzin'”, marking two hits that have arrived from $hyne just in the past few weeks.

This rising talent is definitely on a hot streak right now, so keep your eyes peeled for future releases and check out “Angelz” at the link provided below:

Gio $hyne – “Buzzin” (Prod. christian yoon)

WHY MY LINE KEEP BUZZIN???

Ladies and Gentlemen, 2020’s Gio $hyne and Christian Yoon recently joined forces to drop off one of this year’s best tracks, “Buzzin”. Anyone who’s been around me throughout the last couple of weeks has most definitely heard this record and understands how truly addictive the hook on this track is to listen to. Debuting via Soundcloud just days before last month’s 2020 Night, “Buzzin” serves as Gio $hyne’s moment to release some of the energy that he’s been building up.

I’ve said it an absurd amount of times, but Christian Yoon’s production talent is at a very high level. The 2020-affiliated producer has combined with Gio $hyne in the past to concoct some quality records, but “Buzzin” may honestly be my favorite release from this duo. Gio has the awesome ability to flow buoyantly, yet purposefully on his songs, and he really showcases that talent on this offering. Combine that with the stellar talent of Christian Yoon, and you’ve got a well-put-together track that’ll have fans from Boston and beyond rallying around the 2020 name.

Witnessing the performance of this track at 2020 Night was nothing short of thrilling. Despite it only being a handful of days after the release of “Buzzin”, nothing was able to stop Gio $hyne fans from learning every single word to the record. The energy you can feel purely through listening to the Dorchester-native’s tracks is part of the reason I fell in love with the young artist’s music. Having the privilege of witnessing the effect of this sonic-energy on other fans of the music was stunning.

2020 is one of the Boston music scene’s most gifted collectives, with each member grinding their ass off to make a name for themselves. Gio $hyne and Christian Yoon are only two of the puzzle pieces that help make this group of young talents so great, and I’m excited to watch how they make an even greater impact in music throughout their future.

Gio $hyne – “Insane” [Prod. Christian Yoon]

By: Shamus Hill 

Following a nine-month-long hiatus from releasing music, Gio $hyne returns to the Graduation Music pages today with his latest track “Insane”, which features production at the hands of Christian Yoon. 2020 is one of my favorite collectives of artists in the area, so naturally, I was thrilled when I saw that both Gio and Christian had combined efforts here. The mysterious, ominous sound emitted from the underlying instrumental perfectly suites Gio’s style, making “Insane” a new favorite of mine from the Dorchester-native.

Compact full of bars referencing Boston nights, fashion, and even other members of 2020, “Insane” ultimately becomes a moment for Gio to speak on his life as of late. Despite, at times, feeling like he’s going “insane” and losing control of what’s around him, Gio takes some time to realign his thoughts, and enjoy the spare moments when his homies are around. We all reach periods of time where we feel helpless and unsure of the future, but it’s important not to get lost in that, and find moments of solace however possible. Being surrounded by close friends and the city of Boston, Gio $hyne is here to speak on that solace.

Listening through Gio’s discography, it’s easy to note the amount of growth his music has undergone since beginning to release music over a year ago. He possesses this nonchalant, alluring sound that fits seamlessly over numerous styles of production. One thing, in particular, I really love about Gio’s artistry is his ability to adapt to different sounds, which, at least over the last year, has become customary for him. I’m really looking forward to what his next release will be sounding like. If you haven’t yet, definitely check out our interview with Boston’s 2020 here.
