Continuing his prolific march through the American bass, South Africa's Chee. is setting himself up as a major force to contend with from the other side of the planet. The smoldering impact crater of February's Fear Monger from Saturaterecords is still burning brightly, and releases on Nest HQ and Buygore coupled with last week's collab with Culprate (not to mention videos streaming in of G Jones' unreleased “Get Hot” remix ravaging crowds) are putting the young Pretorian in position to absolutely demolish the game once he sets foot on U.S. soil.
Enter “Grotesque,” a gritty new halftime hellraiser with a fist full of nails and a mouthful of crushed glass. It's rough, raw, and rugged, with swagger to spare. Chee is demonstrating a patient production style, allowing the beast to gestate to full maturity before it explodes into a sweltering strut. There's powerful, grace, and charisma in this one, if you can call a mutant cyborg death machine “charismatic.” Is it any wonder the Noisia lads have pegged Chee as one to watch?
Plans are being kept tightly under wraps, but head up, eyes open—big things are on the way.
