LISTEN: FEVER TRAILS SÓNAR MIX
Nicolaas van Reenen is a Cape Town based multi- instrumentalist and producer, known for his work with a number of acclaimed and emerging acts. He's filled in guest roles for Spoek Mathambo, creates sonic textures with Bateleur, and most recently produces avant electro acoustic sounds as Fever Trails.
Eclectic and ethereal, Fever Trails combines Ableton Live, synthesisers, guitars, drums, piano and bass with Nicolaas' signature complex, layered sound. Part solo project, part collaborative project (especially in the live setting), Fever Trails incorporates the talents and contributions of Sebastiano Zanasi (Yes In French/Christian Tiger School) and Dylan Jefferys (Bateleur), who add a virtuosic element of live spontaneity and dynamics to a largely electronic set.
