About Deltron 3030

At the turn of the 2000s, renowned underground hip-hop producer Dan The Automator joined forces with DJ Kid Koala and legendary MC Del Tha Funkee Homosapien for the conceptual outfit Deltron 3030. Inspired as much by Parliament’s spacey themes and funky beats as early hip-hop’s energy and grit, the trio combined their influences on DELTRON 3030, which spun a futurist narrative about a corporate-run planet. The album was accompanied by an instrumentals set, and soon led the way for the multi-platinum animated alt-rap juggernaut the Gorillaz, which featured all of Deltron’s participants. As of 2008, a long-rumored Deltron sequel was still in the works.
