The phrase “Blue Sky Black Death” comes from skydiving culture and, more or less, it means “enjoy the blue sky, but don’t forget the black earth you are hurling towards.” So, it feels appropriate to have the duo take a leap with us. It’s rare to get music that really embodies the sentiment of a name like that, but the Seattle/Oakland duo makes me feel like I am hurling to ends unknown. Their achievement and influence over the past ten years has been significant, both in their instrumental work and their collaborations with rappers (Gucci! Cam’ron! NORE!). Most recently, their new album “Glaciers” has opened up a whole new world of sound it seems like they have only begun to explore. That’s what excites me so much about pairing them with MC Tree G right now. Like BSBD, Tree is an original. He is from Chicago, but his sound is unique compared to his peers there. As the inventor and promoter of “Soul Trap,” he has made it pretty clear he too is doing his own thing -- hurling toward ends unknown. I still remember the first time I saw the video for “ALL” because I immediately started scouring the internet for anything else I could find by the guy. Also, it goes without saying “Probably Nu It” is an instant classic. I don’t know what these two might produce together, but to get that on wax would be something really special.
