Cheb Terro VS DJ Die Soon
Mad piece of sonic sludge on a cross-continental implosive rap & drill tip, with Japan-via-Berlin nutter Dj Die Soon providing the bassline grit for Sousse / Tunisia's very own Cheb Terro to mash it on the mic, perhaps pre-empting his departure from earth, leaving behind a raucous, wild musical message that will keep him in our memories for years to come.
"Cheb Terro vs DJ Die Soon features Cheb Terro’s posthumous vocals on Die Soon’s beats; a work that was finished one day before Terro’s tragic passing. Starting somewhere in the last quarter of 2020, having approached Daisuke Imamura aka DJ Die Soon for a release, and just heard about Cheb Terro’s work with his Toxic Club, Drowned By Locals made the hook up that would result in a match made in the Underplanet, as Terro would describe it.
Hailing from the city of Sousse in Tunisia, the site of the worst of several Jihadist attacks in recent years, Cheb Terro’s writings and delivery embody the violence stemming from the frustration shared by Tunisia’s new generation; and reflect sadness, rebellion and an obsession with death."
Seriously, this one is cantankerous in all the best ways - a devastatingly fierce, and hella loose album that builds up like a storm, before disintegrating into vapour.
PLAY IT LOUD, and feel the power of music as a language that transcends borders, life, and death.

Served up, in usual Drowned By Locals style, in a very eye-watering way, with care and attention to detail.
