DELTRON 3030 Deltron 3030 (2000 US 21-track CD album which saw Dan The Automator teaming up with the similarly minded MC Del Tha Funkee Homosapien and turntablist Kid Koala for an imaginative collaboration that really shouldnt be missing from any hip hop backpackers collection. Includes the singles Virus Positive Contact and Time Keeps On Slipping)
Hip-hop confabulations don't come much more forward-thinking than this. Working from solid atomic principles, Deltron 3030 takes one producer, one MC and one DJ and throws them beyond Futurama. Dan The Automator (one of the founders of the Handsome Boy Modelling School and administrator of Dr Octagon's porno hospital) reinvents himself as The Cantankerous Captain Aptos and teams up with Deltron Zero (aka Hieroglyphics crew member Del Tha Funky Homosapien) and Skiznod The Boy Wonder (bucky turntablist Kid Koala). Between the radio ads for future-funked, rap jams and camouflaged cameos (by the likes of Prince Paul, a castrato Damon Albarn, MC Paul Barman and his Upper West Side doppelganger Sean Lennon), the Deltron crew advise you to upgrade your brain to avoid getting sucked into the time virus. ("Ugrade your gray matter", they chant, "'cause one day it may matter".) The thematic opener, "3030", sounds like a beat-driven David Lean movie that slipped into the DJs fingers with 31st-century rhythm stutters and scratches. Automator ping-pongs loops as rousing choral parts swells with space pride. "Things You Can Do" riffs off mod rock while a harpsichord hack and Sean Lennon drops feature on the sickly-sweet mental apocalypse of "Memory Loss". Over its 21 tracks, Deltron 3030 erases the errors of this rap era in favour of hip hop's future-fathers. --Chris Campion

Hence why deltron event II has been the most highly anticipated rumour for as long as I've been listening to hip hop. I would put this album on par with Jaylib - Champion Sound and Dj Shadow - Endtroducing.
This will not disapoint.
