If you’re already missing the warm Summer days like we are, we’ve got the song for you. Brooklyn-based producer M!NT has released his melodic and introspective new single “90 Degrees”. The collaboration with Bronx-raised artist Nas Leber is an emotive track brought to life with heavy 808s, piano, and smooth vocal production. According to the press release, the nostalgic lyricism (via Leber) illustrates themes of overcoming challenges and and gratitude for the man he’s become as a result. Those feels are doubled down thanks to the songs relatable “end of Summer” retrospect.

Directed by Sasha Nitze, the highly cinematic video is one of the best we’ve seen in 2020. In the visual, we find Leber rapping against the backdrop of a typical Bronx streetscape (filmed in City Island, to be precise). With it’s stunning creative direction and melancholy tone, the visual takes viewers on a nostalgic trip into memories of a Summer gone by, with a totally New York feel.

The visual premiered on producer and YouTuber Ryan Celsius’ platform and is already making a buzz. Celsius oversees M!NT’s A&R on Stockholm-based record label Amuse, who M!NT recently inked a deal with. Prior to signing his label deal, M!NT had an extensive career as an independent artist, producer, and sound engineer having worked with the likes of Cautious Clay, Ooah from Glitch Mob and NAO, as well as touring around the electric festival circuit, performing at Electric Forest, Mysteryland, and Lightning in a Bottle. If “90 Degrees” is anything to go by, we’re expecting great things from this rising producer.
