Hailing from South Africa, Chee has proven to be a force to be reckoned with inside of the bass music scene. After several years of lateral experimentation in sound design, South African producer CHEE erupted into the international bass scene following a handful of successful self-releases and releases through Dutch label, UNDERSLUG. Once music began circulating, his sonic innovation and advanced production skills quickly gained the attention of many prime figures in the industry, gaining him support from Noisia, Amon Tobin, DJ Craze, Mat Zo, Culprate, G Jones, and more.
Since then, doorways opened across labels from a variety of genres. Drum & Bass focused labels TYPE91, CLOSE2DEATH and ALGORITHM releasing his fierce take on the sound, whilst rising bass labels UPSCALE and RENRAKU delivered his raw trap and halfstep influenced material in its full, devastating glory.
He can’t be confined to a genre, and now he’s back with a blistering new single, signed to Zeds Dead’s Deadbeats imprint, titled “Spangled“. It’s a spooky low-end fueled track, packed with bass rattling wubs and melodies as eerie vocal samples weave in and out of this sonic wonderland.
