Deltron 3030 ft. Mike Patton - "City Rising from the Ashes"
For those of you familiar with the work of the Gorillaz, the name Deltron 3030 might ring a bell, and rightfully so. The hip hop group, comprised of producer Dan the Automator, Kid Koala and Del the Funky Homosapien came into prominence in 2000 with their titular debut album and have been working on the followup for 13 years now. This latest track, taken from the upcoming 'Deltron Event II' takes on a highly narrative form like the predecessor album, portraying the various journeys that Deltron sets out on.
Deltron portrays himself in a similar way to Osiris, the Egyptian god and Ruler of the Underworld. Unlike other pagan religions, Osiris was widely respected as a benevolent Pharaoh god and the personification of 'Life After Death,' and was even known as 'He Who is Permanently Benign and Youthful.'
