As previously reported, hip-hop super group Deltron 3030 will soon release a new EP, City Rising From The Ashes, comprised of material from their first album in 13 years, Event II. We’ve already heard “Pay the Price”, and now the trio of Dan The Automator, Del The Funky Homosapien, and Kid Koala have unveiled the EP’s title track.
Collaborating behind the boards, Dan and Kid Koala keep it simple with a vintage-inspired blend of turntable scratches, jazzy drums, and some vaguely Baltic string work. Meanwhile, Del’s quirky rhymes (“Full scale chaos, reckless abandon/Cats will sell they hand for a handgun/Follow your commander, though you can’t stand him”) add further layers to the musical casserole, proving the outfit hasn’t lost a step after all this time. Listen in below.
The City Rising From the Ashes EP will be available July 30th, followed by Event II on September 17th.
City Rising From the Ashes EP Tracklist:
01. City Rising From the Ashes
