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.

"Fever Trails" is due out May 26th via Bad Life.
