Deltron 3030 is not your average hip-hop outfit. They’re an electro-funk supergroup from the future with an epic sci-fi quest told across two albums. At Mountain Oasis, they really stepped up their game, bringing along a 16-piece orchestra complete with strings, horns, and a chorus. The tuxedo-clad Dan the Automator served well as conductor, also overseeing a three-piece band, Kid Koala on the tables, and Del the Funky Homosapien — a.k.a. Deltron Zero — at the mic. Together, everyone hit each note to precision, from “Positive Contact” to recent single “City Rising From the Ashes” to the closer that brought it all home: a cover of Gorillaz’s “Clint Eastwood”. Energetic is the keyword here. –Carson O’Shoney
