Better late than never right? Thirteen years since their 2000 debut; DELTRON 3030 – Kid Koala, Del the Funky Homosapien, and Dan “The Automator” Nakamura, have released their highly anticipated second album â€˜EVENT II.’ The long awaited sequel to their self-titled debut includes contributions from Damon Albarn, Mike Patton, Rage Against the Machineâ€™s Zack de la Rocha (â€œMelding of the Mindsâ€), The Lonely Island, and Emily Wells.
The album portrays the travels of DELTRON ZERO; (the privateer voiced by Emcee Del the Funky Homosapien) and his unique observations and experiences in a hazy dystopian society. Del has described the finished product as â€œmore like a rock opera, but using rap,â€ explaining, â€This time, the album has a specific storyâ€¦. the DELTRON world has gone too far with technology. Everythingâ€™s destroyed, and you just see the remnants of our technology. The streets are run by criminals, the police are outnumbered and outgunned, and weâ€™re like pirates, running rogue, doing what we do to survive.â€
