Fever Trails

Nicolaas van Reenen is a Cape Town-based multi-instrumentalist and producer, known for his wide ranging and often stylistically flamboyant output. He’s filled in guest roles for Spoek Mathambo, contributed to the recently extinct post-whatever-mammoths, Bateleur, and currently performs multi-genre electronic music as Fever Trails.

Fever Trails compresses van Reenen’s scattered influences into a chunky wad of weird and wonderful beat driven music that aims to skirt the boundaries between fun and foreboding.

Having released music on labels such as Bad Life (UK), Ryan Hemsworth’s Secret Songs (CAN) and Slugabed’s Activia Benz (UK), and most recently on Cape Town’s own Quit Safari, Fever Trails’s music has achieved local and international acclaim in recent years, culminating eventually in being invited to play his first Boiler Room set in 2016.
