After only a few years of honing in his craft, South African producer CHEE erupted into the international bass and experimental music scene. Once his music began circulating, his sonic innovation and advanced production skills quickly earned him the attention of many top tier acts, gaining him support from names like Noisia, Culprate, Amon Tobin, Mat Zo, and G Jones.
Picking up exactly where he last left off, Chee is back with his new single “Turn Up” that is out now via Deadbeats. The enigmatic beatmaker’s sound and style has simply sparked a movement within the bass music realm. As he continues to champion his sound design prowess, the prodigious talents of Chee has caught the attention of the masses and he is just getting started.
“I was elated to have my good friend African Ginger work on the art for Turn Up and later have the opportunity to work with him on the final EP art. I wanted the recurring theme to be a feeling of restraint & the need to escape, but partially being paralyzed by one’s own mind. The process of overanalyzing, causing one to freeze and be a prisoner of their own thoughts. I think a lot of people can relate to that feeling, especially after this last year, and I feel the art does the perfect job portraying that internal conflict a lot of us face daily.” – Chee
