Deltron 3030


Fresh off the release of Event 2, the long-awaited sequel to their classic self-titled debut, Del the Funky Homosapien, Dan the Automator, and Kid Koala have returned from the ethers of a dystopian year 3040 to remind us that the future is now on this third stone from the sun. That is to say, everything that Del warned us about on Deltron 3030—the widespread governmental surveillance, socio-economic ruin, cultural vapidity, and wack MCing—is now the norm in our overly corporatized, socially-mediated 2013 reality. This has confirmed the Oakland rapper a something of a prophet, which means that we should pay close attention to him on Event 2, especially as he spits his 3RDEye flows over tracks so stellar they sound like Spaghetti Western soundtracks spliced with classic video game music.
