The return of Deltron 3030— the alt-rap trio composed of Del the Funky Homosapien, DJ Kid Koala, and producer Dan the Automator— will include a fall tour. The trio will hit the road in North America starting next month, with accompaniment on many dates by a 16-piece orchestra dubbed the “3030 Orchestra”.
Deltron’s new album, Event II, will be out on October 1, and includes a long list of unlikely contributors: Damon Albarn, Mike Patton, the Lonely Island, Rage Against the Machine’s Zack De La Rocha, Emily Wells, and Jamie Cullum, plus actors David Cross, Amber Tamblyn, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, and Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and chef David Chang. Watch the trailer for the album after the dates.
The Instupicuous lyrical stylings of Deltron 3030.
Yo, it’s three thousand thirty
I want y’all to meet Deltron Zero, hero, not no small feat
It’s all heat in this day and age
I’ll raid your grave, anything it takes to save the day
Neuromancer, perfect blend of technology and magic
Use my rappin so you all could see the hazards
Plus entertainment where many are brainless
We cultivated a lost art of study and I brought a buddy
Automator harder slayer fascinating combinations
Cyber warlords are aggravating abominations
Arm a nation with hatred we ain’t with that
We high-tech archeologists searching for knicknacks
Composing musical stimpacks that impacts the soul
Crack the mold of what you think you rappin for?
I used to be a mech soldier but I didn’t respect orders
I had to step forward, tell them this ain’t for us
Living in a post-apocalyptic world morbid and horrid
The secrets of the past they hoarded
Now we just boarded on a futuristic spacecraft
No mistakes black it’s our music we must take back
