Slættaratindur – Marius DC
Faroese rap prospect Marius DC is back with an anticipated release in his native language of Faroese. The track serves as a bookend to what is undeniably the most fruitful year of
the young MC’s career, and boy does it show.
The 18 year old sounds cocky as ever with lines like “I’m at the top of the Faroes, like Slættaratindur”(a reference to the highest mountain on the islands) and “Came to Sement, and I totally won”(a reference to his big win in the music competition in May). It strikes a balance between conventional brag-raps and quintessentially local references, creating a lyrical landscape that’s hard to find anywhere else.
Eagle-eyed fans of nordic music may recognize Marius from his star-making appearance at Reykjavík’s Iceland Airwaves festival in November, or his co-sign from Danish superstar Tobias Rahim earlier this year. DC’s star is rising, and Slættaratindur is the highest peak so far.
