Label: Too Many Records

Blue Sky Black Death and Nacho Picasso combine forces again for ‘Exalted‘.
“From the moment I first heard Nacho spit, I was instantly entranced. Something about his syrupy laid back drawl was intoxicating, and I couldn’t get enough of it. A lot of his lines are also hilarious, which adds to the listening experience considerably. Underneath his confident flow lies the masterful production of Blue Sky Black Death. This unlikely duo managed to bring out the best of one another, as the beats are always next-level tasty and often times spooky and unnerving, which goes with a lot of the themes and feelings of the album. The album manages to feel both grimy and ethereal which is a beautiful blend of sounds. Nacho aka the Tat in the Hat pulls you into his nihilistic world with killer hooks and repetitive motifs throughout the album, building something extremely cohesive by the end of the journey. This is one of many projects that Nacho and BSBD did together, but this one is my favorite due to some of my favorite Nacho tracks being on it.“
– Matt, Too Many Records
