Listen To The Debut Single From Cape Town Producer Fever Trails

Cape Town electronic producer Fever Trails aka Nicolaas Van Reenan makes his self-titled single debut via Bad Life.


Fever Trails (aka the production moniker of Bateleur's Nicolaas Van Reenan) has been a fixture of Cape Town's hazy music landscape for a minute now. Today we received a proper taste of his experiments in sub-bass on a leak of his self-titled debut single. Like a spectrum of ethereal/space sounds on earth, "Fever Trails" opens with a drippy warmup before heading down a similar cave as James Blake on Wilhelm Scream at the one minute mark. On the flipside, "Pattern Language," wanders into a state of rhythmic soundscapes. Listen to the first offering from Fever Trails below and stay tuned for more on Van Reenan coming up. "Fever Trails" is due out May 26th via Bad Life.
