You heard about the Nudie Jeans pop up shop in Seattle that opened up this month in conjunction with DELI Seattle (if not click here), but now to add to the buzz, the pop-up is rocking out with a live performance by Blue Sky Black Death, a west coast production duo who are kicking off a US spring tour and album ‘NOIR’ release. Art will be exhibited by Justin Kane Elder, and the whole shabang kicks off at 7PM March 25th (that’s tomorrow). Check it out at Deli (1307 First Ave, Seattle WA).

Blue Sky Black Death, an accomplished West Coast production duo has mastered the art of collaboration. Their sound transforms the raw into the refined through technically building layers that exceed the boundaries of any one particular musical genre. Young God and Kingston make up the duo, and acquire additional people to help construct the synthesis of instrumental variety.
Often a single track will involve a violin, cello, keyboard, and guitar mixed with live vocals and abstract samplings, so each song compiles and manipulates to make the music engage on several levels. Most of their reputation comes from their accomplishments with various hip hop collaborators (Jean Grae, Crooked-I, Hell Razah, the late Guru, Ill Bill, to name but a few).
Each album surpasses the next in expectation thus creating surprise. BSBD has been recieved praise from such publications as Spin, URB, Rock Sound, XLR8R , Itunes, Imeem, ReUp magazine, Filter Magazine, Vapors Magazine, Remix Magazine, Pop Matters, amongst others, and their music has led them to receive world wide recognition. BSBD has redefined hip hop through their kaleidoscopic perception of music as a landscape; music as a dimension to construct and build upwards and out. Their name borrowed from the skydiving term, beauty before death, mirrors their longevity and ability to bring back to life, dead and forgotten dimensions.
