Chee unveils ‘Aggressive Generosity’ EP on Bassrush Records
Hailing all the way from South Africa, rising bass producer Chee describes “the scene” in his city of Pretoria as unique because it accompanies a vast spectrum of genres. And it’s pretty clear that genre fusion has informed his latest amorphous EP, Aggressive Generosity. The 4-track project has been picked up by Insomniac’s Bassrush Records, whose long been known to have their finger on the pulse of cutting-edge bass music.
From the trip-hop sequences of the EP’s title track, “Aggressive Generosity,” all the way up to the glitched-out basslines of his closing track, “Poker Dot,” Chee is covering new terrain never before seen in the left-field bass scene. It’s darker, deeper, and more robust than most of what we’ve been experiencing. A standout track on the project is “Midnight,” with its incorporation of organic sounds over a gritty, robotic landscape, thereby transporting listeners onto a mellow, yet complex sonic terrain. If nothing else, Chee has laid down a short body of truly progressive work.
