Dust is the second release from Oblique Brown; long time collaborators Zeeb from The Soulful MP's and Chee Malabar of Himalayan Project. Having previously worked together on Himalayan Project's 2003 album Wince At The Sun, Zeeb and Chee started work as Oblique Brown in 2004. The resulting album was a mix of hip hop swagger, heartbreak, celebration, and ultimately, is a snapshot into the life of a young man in America grappling with being a "brown man in a white world, living through black music". Zeeb's beats on Oblique Brown are lush urban soundscapes that provide a raw, thumping backdrop for Chee's lyrics, which range from humorous to introspective, and whose subject matter reflects a number of complicated issues such as politics, multiculturalism, love, ambition and emotional growth. Dust, recorded after the release of their self titled album, consists of songs that mark what hip hop music has evolved into- a tool for self-expression and evaluation of all aspects of life. Chee and Zeeb reflect a maturing Hip Hop community which seeks to find itself through the music it grew up on and stretch it beyond its current boundaries.
