Clip of the Week Mar 16: Deltron 3030
Virus - Deltron 3030 (Deltron 3030 2000)
Deltron 3030 is comprised of turntablist Kid Koala, producer Dan "the Automator," Nakamura, and rapper Del the Funkee Homosapien, an underground hip hop supergroup. The concept album is set in the year 3030, a post-apocalyptic world ruled by large corporations, and Deltron Zero's fight against them.
I recently bought a reissue of the album on vinyl, and it inspired me to post this cool music video from the group. The Automator production is brilliant, Koala's work on the turn tables are top notch, and Del's lyrical imagery and flow are out of this world, demonstrated on "Virus."
The three would go on to work on the Gorillaz's first album in 2001.
