It’s been 13 years since we’ve seen an album from hip-hop supergroup Deltron 3030. The group is made up of Del Tha Funkee Homosapien (Hieroglyphics, Gorillaz) Dan The Automator, and (DJ) Kid Koala.
The group’s eponymously named debut album was a landmark recording and is compared with other rap operas such as R. Kelly‘s Trapped In The Closet or Prince Paul’s A Prince Among Thieves. The new album, Event II is a continuation of the first Deltron 3030 album.
The album includes features from Rage Against The Machine frontman Zack de la Rocha, The Lonely Island, Gorillaz mastermind Damon Albarn, Casual, Black Rob and many others. The album is a musical space odyssey and is quite enjoyable to listen to. Not only for the silly but highly insightful and conscious lyrics, but also for Dan The Automator’s futuristic production. Pick up Event II at your local record store, or feel free to geek out to the album using the spotify player below. ↓
