Listening Post: Deltron 3030

Deltron 3030 is the great producer / programmer / DJ Dan the Automator teamed up with the equally great alternative hip-hop MC Del tha Funkeé Homosapien. It’s been 13 years since their debut album was released, but now, at long last, they’re back — and with the same kind of rotating cast of guest musicians and voices they featured last time around.

Among them, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, The Lonely Island, Damon Albarn, Jamie Cullum — and Faith No More’s Mike Patton, who guests on this song, the first single from the new album, Event II.

These guys are sincerely all kinds of awesome.

Here’s City Rising from the Ashes, performed live.

Chez Pazienza was the beating heart of The Daily Banter, sadly passing away on February 25, 2017. His voice remains ever present at the Banter, and his influence as powerful as ever.
