If you miss an important event in life, you cannot fill the void by attempting to simply recreate the experience. You must recreate and heighten the experience, producing something exponentially greater than that missed opportunity. If you missed out on a chance to ride a horse, ride an elephant while it swims across a river to a barbeque. If you missed a big used vinyl sale at a great record shop, find the vinyl warehouse that supplies the record shop and have sex with both Loggins and Messina in the warehouse. If you missed seeing Deltron 3030 (a.k.a. Dan the Automator, Kid Koala, and Del the Funky Homosapien) in concert, see them in concert with a 16-piece orchestra or at a festival with Slick Rick, the Wu-Tang Clan, and a hologram of ODB.

Deltron 3030’s fall tour will allegedly support the October 1 release of their perpetually delayed album and/or nine-year performance art piece, Deltron: Event II (on Bulk Recordings). The overdue album is a follow-up to 2000’s futuristic dystopian now-classic Deltron 3030. It somehow includes appearances from Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Amber Tamblyn, David Cross, The Lonely Island, Black Rob, Zach De La Rocha, and someone named Jamie Cullum. If Deltron’s recently-released EP City Rising from the Ashes is any indication, the album will consist of dope beats, complicated sci-fi plots, spacey scratching, and seemingly patternless rhyme structures. On May 15, 2012, Kid Koala described an early cut of the album to this reporter (TMT Exclusive) as “ill.”

Note for readers under the age of 20: Deltron 3030 was a hip-hop group that was beloved by many for their nontraditional subject matter, catchy production, and having two Asian men in their lineup. All three members have been busy with other projects and slowly working on this album since before cell phones could access the internet.
