Ex Olympic (Live) at the Gorgeous George Hotel

April 26 @ 7:30 pm - 10:30 pm SAST

R120
We’re proud to present multi-instrumentalist Ex Olympic, live in our newly renovated 1st floor!
Ex Who? Ex Olympic is the bright-eyed, eternally curious self-trained composer, producer, vocalist and multi-instrumentalist, Nicolaas Van Reenen.
Nic has been integral to some seminal ensembles in the South African alternative music scene such as Bateleur (the six-piece band which deeply stirred the Cape Town Scene with its blend of progressive and psychedelic rock), and as part of Spoek Mathambo’s band, “Mshini Wam” – a unique afro-futurist outfit pushing both sonic and aesthetic boundaries to international acclaim. Van Reenen was also the bleep-bloop-fiddler behind Fever Trails – a solo electronic endeavor releasing under UK labels Activia Benz and Ryan Hemsworth’s Secret Songs.
After a year’s hiatus writing professional compositions for film and television, van Reenen gave in to the creative itch calling for his return to free creative writing.
Through Ex Olympic, Nic lets his creativity shine. The multi-instrumentalist writes, sings, performs, records and produces his music alone but will be performing with a group of fellow musicians for this show.
“It felt like a lot of what I expected of myself in music (i.e. to be the most remarkable, genre-bending, mind-melting snowflake) became less important, and making sincere music, which I just honestly enjoyed writing, took precedent. And so Ex Olympic came to be, and here we are 🙂 I write songs that mean something to me viscerally, and that’s really all that guides the process” – Ex Olympic
