Fake Four & SlyVinyl have teamed up to celebrate the ten year anniversary of the release of one of the best ambient instrumental records of all time!

Noir is Blue Sky Black Death in full form; bringing cinematic, epic, shoegaze influenced instrumental hip hop, filled with epic soundscapes, cracking drums and soulful samples.

This reissue has it all:
• Brand New Mastering
• Brand New Album Art
• Gatefold Jacket w/ Spot Gloss Finish
• Side D is All Exclusive Tracks

Blue Sky Black Death’s breakout album Noir was originally released on Fake Four Inc. on April 26, 2011, and now Fake Four Inc. has partnered with SlyVinyl to release a special 10-year deluxe reissue double LP version. The Seattle based production duo showcases on Noir what they do best: cinematic, epic, shoegaze influenced instrumental hip hop. Although Kingston and Young God have always strayed from the expected by doing everything from indie synth pop to hardcore boom bap (with the likes of Guru, Jean Grae, Hieroglyphics, Jedi Mind Tricks, etc.) they have always maintained an unrivaled level of quality and consistency with all of their work.

In 2013, a limited-run two-disc vinyl pressing was done, featuring the original track listing, two alternates, as well as a previously-unreleased track, "Thirteen", which does not appear on the deluxe digital release, and it was followed by a later re-pressing in 2014. Fans of Blue Sky Black Death through the years are sure to be thrilled at this beautifully packaged release featuring new alternate versions and new art by Andy McAlpine.

"Noir…succeeds in communicating incomprehensible hugeness through sonically detailed tracks with an almost narrative-like structure.” – Pitchfork
