Leeds-based producer and one third of Hanover, Trevelyan, steps into fresh territory with the first release from his new experimental project.
Accompanied by a beautifully saturated music video that glides through broken landscapes, ‘Shei Zhi Dao’ is an experimental hip-hop track that’s soaked in sentimental energy. Grainy drums hang loose, taking full swing and providing backbone to the delicate chord progressions, whilst guest vocalist Mo Yan provides graceful textures that bounce off the low-end and add healing forces.
Having gained radio play from the likes of Rinse FM and BBC 1Xtra, and support from Compa and Doc Scott as part of the Hanover collective, ‘Shei Zhi Dao’ sees Trevelyan step away from the D&B and dubstep styles that Hanover have become known for and confidently tread into experimental waters, drawing influence from artists such as Flying Lotus and Shigeto and embracing what feels emotionally right.
