LISTEN / Nicolaas van Reenen / Vacuum


South African musician and producer Nicolaas van Reenen appears to be a constant flow of musical energy. When he isn’t busy touring as live guitarist with Spoek Mathambo, he’s writing and performing with his own band Bateleur, and in between all that he releases his solo works.

The latest from van Reenen further showcases his talent – the 7 minute track starts off as a piano driven slow-burner before morphing in a pulsating minimal techno beat only to break half way and re-build itself into a flourishing orchestral arrangement.

Let’s hope there is a another albumin the pipeline. If you haven’t yet, catch Nico’s Wrestlemania release from 2012.
