‘Fifty-seven Degrees North’ is the debut album from Scottish producer Nostalgiac and his second serving of UK and US rap following on from the esteemed ‘Pilot’ EP.
The project, a nod to his hometown of Aberdeen, boasts 13 features across its ten tracks of dark, trap-infused rap production, which invoke emotions level with the lyrics spoken across them. As for the word providers, London’s KISH! stands out alongside Atlanta’s Tommy Ice and fellow Scot 2T as Nostalgiac continues to showcase new emcees.
Previous collaborators SBK and TrippyThaKid share the album’s closing track to remind listeners of Nostalgiacs’ pull.
It’s a bouncy affair of heavy drums which deserve to be played through speakers that can facilitate every bass rumble and snare snap; ‘Cup Full of Gin’ being a shining example.
“…by 2013, through listening to people like Yung Lean, I was amazed scenes could exist in somewhere like Sweden, far away from where I thought rap music was from. That’s when I started making songs as I realised that you didn’t need to be from the US or London to make sick music.”
