Stream the Long-Awaited Second Album from Deltron 3030
- Words: Leo Maymind
Veteran hip-hop supergroup Deltron 3030—the trio of Del the Funky Homosapien, Kid Koala, and Dan the Automator—came out of hibernation a few months ago with the announcement of the long-awaited follow up to its self-titled debut, an album which, when it came out 13 years ago, influenced an entire generation of beatmakers looking for an alternate hip-hop universe. Now, Deltron 3030: Event II can be heard in its entirety. As previously reported, the self-described "rock opera" of an LP features a wide range of collaborators—including David Cross, SNL pranksters The Lonely Island, multi-instrumentalist Mike Patton, Rage Against the Machine's Zach De La Rocha, and, oddly, actor Joseph Gordon-Levitt, among others—and is set to arrive on October 1 via Dan the Automator's own Bulk Recordings. Before then, the album is available to stream in full here, courtesy of Pitchfork Advance.
