Deltron 3030’s beat-master Dan “The Automator” Nakamura has been listening to his fans, and those fans he’s been listening to have been asking for a beer.
Mr. Nakamura has teamed with Dogfish Head (who also made this fantastic beer) to create a Deltron 3030 “house party in a box.” Inside that box, you’ll find not only a 10-inch record featuring remixes of Deltron 3030 tracks done by The Automator himself, but also six 750-ml champagne bottles filled with “Positive Contact” beer. Positive Contact beer is a special 9% ABV mixture of cider and beer made with “wood-pressed Fuji apples, roasted farro, a handful of cayenne peppers and a late dose of fresh cilantro.” In addition to the hip-hop and hops, you’ll find the record sleeve inscribed with a bunch of recipes cooked up by chefs like Mario “Bolognese” Batali so that you can feed your party guests more than just frozen pizza or charred hot dogs.
In related news, Deltron 3030 have yet to announce an official release date for Deltron Event II, the group’s 12-year-in-the-making follow-up to their third album. We’ve gotten tweets, Facebook updates, and vague details, but I’ll believe it when I get cover art, a tracklist, and a release date. Until then, hand me one of those beers so I can try and forget that it’s taken 12 years.
