Producer Dan "The Automator" Nakamura thrives on collaborations -- he's worked with Kool Keith on his Dr. Octagon project and with Prince Paul on the Handsome Boy Modeling School's album. The Automator's newest project, Deltron 3030, is the perfect extension of the sci-fi lexicon that he started with Octagon in 1995. On this project, the Automator makes another perfect MC selection with Oakland's acclaimed Del the Funky Homosapien, who proves he can flow flawlessly even while creating fictional worlds and characters. The fictional character Deltron lives in the year 3030, and both producer and rapper work around that theme. Automator's beats are sparsely looped and futuristic-sounding, and Del engages listeners every time he touches the mike. On the title track, he sets the scene for 3030's post-apocalyptic, anti-musical society with lyrics such as "We just boarded on a futuristic space craft/No mistakes Black/It's our music we must take back," and on "Things You Can Do," he spits scientific-sounding rhymes such as "hydrogen turns to helium when I shine" over the Automator's harpsichord- and drum-fueled beats. By inviting DJ Kid Koala on the wheels-of-steel and guest artists MC Paul Barman, Prince Paul, Sean Lennon, and Blur's Damon Albarn along for the wild ride, the visionary tag team of Dan and Del don't have to brave their strange new world alone.
