Deltron 3030
Event II
Street: 10.01
Deltron 3030 = Handsome Boy Modeling School + DJ Shadow + GZA
The return of Deltron Zero and Automator is finally here to continue the fight against the New World Order in Event II. Packed with an eclectic group of guests, the album opens with Joseph Gordon-Levitt setting the backdrop to what feels like a play as the album progresses. “Nobody Can” features Aaron Bruno, and despite its cheesy hook, serves as the duo’s superhero anthem, whereas “Melding of the Minds” is a battle cry, featuring Zach De La Rocha’s unmistakable rebel yell. “The Agony” depicts the shattered landscape of the post-apocalyptic Earth through Automator’s futuristic beat, featuring Mary Elizabeth Winstead’s eerie vocals. Damon Albarn returns to the front in “What is this Loneliness,” sending you on a journey through atoms on your way to the album’s heartache closer, “Do You Remember,” featuring Jamie Cullum. Put down your GMO freak food and join the resistance against the NWO—start with this album! –Darcy Russell
