5.0 out of 5 stars 3030 to infinity., 20 April 2014
This review is from: Event II (Audio CD)
Dan the Automator returns with Del tha funkee homosapien and Kid Koala as Deltron 3030 to take us once again to the distopian future. Opening with a Joseph Gorden Levitt monologue spelling out the scene of tough times that have befallen the future mankind, which sound very much like the tough times that have befallen our current society, Del sweeps in on a rush of cosmic orchestration to reintroduce the hero of our piece. Pay the Price sets the tone, round bass tones and quick cuts from Koala perfectly complimenting Del's laxidaisical yet purposeful lyrical delivery. On it's own merits,if you are a fan, this track alone is worth the price of admission.
What follows is some gorgeous retro futurism, interspersed with some genuinely funny skits concerning life in the future. For an album concerned narratively with the future,it made me think much more of the past than it's predecessor had, bringing to mind No Cause For Alarm era Del, Handsome Boy Modelling School's debut and on more than one occasion 93 'til infinity from Souls of Mischief. Fitting then that Del's fellow Heiroglyphic crew member Casual guests alongside Damon Albarn on one of the album's swooning highlights What is this Loneliness.
In turns this album is melancholic, soulful and funkee(sic), 3030 as an album seemed to be very much forward looking in the soundscape it dealt in, Event 2 is futuristic in narrative content only. But honestly, when Automator's production, Del's delivery and Koala's cuts are timeless what more could a fan ask for?
