Deltron 3030 - City From the Rising Ashes EP

Long before Gorillaz stole their thunder, Deltron 3030 were the premier (and possibly only) experimental future hip hop collective. Comprised of Del the Funky Homosapien, Dan the Automator, and Kid Koala, 2000's Deltron 3030 was a concept album that took place in the year 3030. Damned if I knew what the hell was going on, but City From the Rising Ashes EP takes place in 4010. In advance of their follow up album, Event II, City From the Rising Ashes EP is here to remind us when Deltron 3030 blew the shit out of our minds. It consists of 3 songs which feature guest spots by Mike Patton and Mary Elizabeth Winstead (Scott Pilgrim vs The World, Smashed). Existing pretty much solely to get us psyched for Event II, the EP does it's job. It's exactly what we want, and you know the best is still yet to come. 

City From the Rising Ashes EP is out now. You can stream the entire EP for free. Event II is set for release on October 1. Head on over to Deltron 3030's website for more info and to preorder the album. Also, check out tour dates below to see if they're coming to your city.
