Deltron 3030 Vinyl Bundle (4xLP Bundle)Deltron 3030
The super group Deltron 3030 is composed of producer Dan the Automator, rapper Del tha Funkee Homosapien and DJ Kid Koala and sometimes features guest artists who also take on varying futuristic pseudonyms. Originally released in 2000 on the now-defunct 75ARK record label, this Hip Hop concept album was released the same year as Gorillaz' first 12" and is on a similar plane. Following the release of Deltron 3030, all three members participated in Gorillaz' self-titled debut album.
With Del aka Deltron Zero on vocals, Dan the Automator aka The Cantankerous Captain Aptos on production, and Kid Koala aka Skiznoid the Boy Wonder on turntables, this album takes the listener on a paranoid journey set in a dystopian year 3030 dealing with viruses, the apocalypse, an oppressive government, and a war waged against a huge company called the Corporate Bank of Time that rules the universe, all to the well-crafted and consistent musical backing of the Automator.
Appearances by Damon Albarn (Gorillaz, Blur), Prince Paul, Peanut Butter Wolf, DJ Money Mark, Paul Barman, Mark Bell (Bjork, production), Sean Lennon, and Mr. Lif compliment Del's vocal style and add the right amount of flavor to this classic period piece.
DELTRON 3030 INSTRUMENTALS
Deltron 3030 The Instrumentals is the sibling of Deltron 3030's legendary self-titled debut and an experience all its own. Since the record’s release in 2000, Deltron 3030 has moved into the pantheon of greatest recordings of all time, of any genre. Del’s Deltron Zero persona certainly has much to do with the release’s setting in a dystopian future. But beyond that, and beyond the great guest appearances the foundation of that setting is the sonic landscape presented by Dan The Automator. The Instrumentals puts the focus on the mood forged by The Automator’s soundscapes which create a listening experience often referred to as cinematic.
Long out of print since its initial release in 2001, The Instrumentals return housed in a unique die-cut jacket with a full color obi rounding out the package. The result is a set that’s visual appeal compliments the rich soundscape created by Dan The Automator.
