When you think of the name "The Surf Club" images of big waves, surf boards, sandy shores, scantily clad women and tropical drinks may come to mind. Those images have nothing to do with this brand of, The Surf Club. The Surf Club is a collective of creative minds who have come together from different parts of the country over the past 4 years to bring some of the most innovative and unique sounds to hip-hop and music in general. Why the name Surf Club? The Surf Club is more than just a "crew" of artists. Surf Club is a part of a generation that fearlessly takes risks and does not shy away from being different. They have taken full advantage of the benefits of social interactions online and understand the value of working together in order to rise to the top. In their evolution as a group, they have added Chili Chil, B. Carr aka Sharkey, Ry, StaCy Barthe and Kent M$NEY to the Surf Club family. Hit-Boy and Chase N. Cashe are the masterminds behind the production side of The Surf Club. Sonically, the duo has worked together to create music that incorporates an array of genres in an attempt to revolutionize the way we currently view Hip Hop music. They challenge themselves to create new sounds and concepts that will continually keep them a few steps ahead of the game. Surf Club's talent and unique sound has helped garner the respect of many people in the music industry. Their consistency and dedication to their craft led them to make beats that eventually caught the attention of super producer Polow Da Don who believed in the Surf Club vision and sound. Meanwhile, Hit-Boy and Chase made a connection on Myspace as well and Chase soon found a home at Zone 4 Inc. with his new partner Hit-Boy. Together, they have produced music for a number of artists in the industry such as the Lil Wayne, Young Money, Eminem, Pussycat Dolls, G-Unit, Keri Hilson, Mary J. Blige, Flo Rida, Brandy and P.Diddy. Chili Chil was also featured on Snoop Dogg's 'Ego Trippin' album on the song " Why Did You Leave Me". In the midst of working with other artists, Surf Club has taken the time to develop music for themselves as well. Their sound can be described as an abstract fusion of Hip Hop and world culture. Like the beach, their music is laid back, chill, and creates a space where listeners can be themselves and free their minds. Earlier this year the group set out, to officially "brand" Surf Club as more than a production house by releasing their first artist base project, Chili Chil's 'Cold World'. The mixtape, hosted by DJ Don Cannon, was the first to fully feature a Surf Club artist. Production was handled by Surf Club with Chase N Cashe and Chili Chil himself providing most of the sonic backdrops. More recently, they debuted their second artist, Kent Money, with his 'Becoming' mixtape. Chili Chil offer's a raw blend of creativity, street and melody. Chase N Cashe call's Chil "a mix between Busta Rhymes, Missy Elliot and Max B." Kent offer's listeners a throwback feeling of early 90's lyricism and when added to Hit-Boy's production its a real blend of old school meets new. What started out as a production team has grown into a multifaceted group of musical talent that collectively can sing, write, rap and produce. After years of making music they are beginning to receive the recognition they deserve. You will be singing along to a Surf Club hit before you know it. Welcome to the club.
