Blue Sky Black Death step on the scene with their double CD debut, A Heap Of Broken Images. Comprised of producers Kingston and Young God, this San Francisco tandem explores the nether regions of hip-hop, meshing dark samples, vocal snippets and live intrumentation into an album that holds its mood from start to finish. The first CD consists entirely of dense instrumental music, while the second is structured around guest MCs. Jus Allah, Wise Intelligent (Poor Righteous Teachers), Sabac Red (Non-Phixion), Guru (Gang Starr), Chief Kamachi, A-Plus and Pep Love (Hieroglyphics), Rob Sonic, Virtuoso, Mikah-9 (Freestyle Fellowship), Awol One, and Holocaust (Wu-Tang) all appear. This deep line up of collaborations spans the spectrum of hip-hop sound with stirring cohesion.
