Deltron 3030 Event II is Here!
The notoriously long-anticipated sequel to Deltron 3030 is finally here!! Deltron 3030 Event II dropped October 1st and people have had a lot to say about it.
Deltron 3030— aka Del the Funky Homosapien, DJ Kid Koala, and producer Dan the Automator— have detailed Deltron 3030: Event II, their first album since their self-titled debut in 2000. It contains a truly weird list of contributors: In addition to Damon Albarn, Mike Patton, the Lonely Island, Rage Against the Machine’s Zack De La Rocha, Emily Wells, and Jamie Cullum, there’s also appearances from actors David Cross, Amber Tamblyn, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, and Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and chef David Chang.
During a press release, Del detailed the concept behind the album:
“This time, the album has a specific story. The Deltron world has gone too far with technology. Everything’s destroyed, and you just see the remnants of our technology. The streets are run by criminals, the police are outnumbered and outgunned, and we’re like pirates, running rogue, doing what we do to survive. That’s the scene of it. We’re trying to be as literary as possible while dealing with a musical format. I don’t know if you could even categorize this as a hip hop album – it’s more like a rock opera, but using rap.”
Here are a few tracks from Event II for you to check out and determine your opinion. Enjoy!
