Deltron 3030 Announces Fall Tour Dates

Image Credit: Robin Ha

Deltron 3030 is excited to announce a fall tour in support of their upcoming album Deltron 3030: Event II, out October 1st via Bulk Recordings. The tour will feature a sixteen-piece orchestra — dubbed the 3030 Orchestra — on select dates, noted below, in addition to the three-piece touring band. Following performances at both the Los Angeles and San Francisco Rock The Bells, the tour will begin on October 8th in Boston at Paradise and end on October 25th at Mountain Oasis Festival in Asheville, with more dates to be announced soon. Full tour dates are below.

Deltron 3030: Event II, due October 1st, 2013, is Deltron 3030’s long-awaited successor to their self-titled cult-classic debut. Deltron 3030 — composed of a trinity of alt-rap all-stars: rapper Del The Funky Homosapien, producer Dan “The Automator” Nakamura and DJ Kid Koala — are celebrating the announcement with the debut of the album trailer, set to the first track on the record “Stardate.” The clip, which features Joseph Gordon-Levitt, is available for posting HERE.

Recently, the group released their City Rising From the Ashes EP, which is available for posting in its entirety HERE, features three tracks off the upcoming full-length Deltron 3030: Event II. The EP is available on limited edition CD, including a $2 coupon off the full-length, and via digital retailers, which counts towards iTunes Complete My Album.

Individually, the collaborators of Deltron 3030 stand at the top of their respective musical disciplines; together as Deltron 3030, they warped space, bent time, transcended genre and blew minds with Deltron 3030, an album that still stands today as one of the most important records in the annals of underground hip-hop.

Del The Funky Homosapien, founder of Oakland’s seminal Hieroglyphics crew, launched his career as part of his cousin Ice Cube’s posse, da Lench Mob, and gained recognition as a top-tier hiphop verbalist with his 1991 debut, I Wish My Brother George Was Here, featuring the memorable tracks “Mistadobalina” and “Dr. Bombay.” He would release three more albums -1993’s No Need for Alarm, 1998’s Future Development and 2000’s Both Sides of the Brain – before joining with Nakamura and Koala for Deltron 3030.

Dan “The Automator” Nakamura, the architect of the sonic landscape within which Del and Koala work their magic, first captivated the hiphop underground with Dr. Octagonacologyst, his collaboration with Ultramagnetic MC’s Kool Keith. He went on to produce Cornershop’s breakout album, When I Was Born for the 7th Time, and to team up with fellow superproducer Prince Paul under the name Handsome Boy Modeling School, before forming Deltron 3030 with Del and Koala.

Kid Koala, a native of Vancouver whose turntablism mixtape Scratchcratchratchatch, recorded on cassette while a university student, brought him to the attention of superstar British DJs Matt Black and Jonathan More, better known as Coldcut; the duo signed him as the first North American artist on their new label Ninja Tune, launched as a haven for the world’s most exceptional DJ and EDM talent. A year into his signing, Koala met Nakamura at the New York show of his first U.S. tour; the two hit it off immediately, and – beginning with Deltron – Koala became one of The Automator’s most frequent collaborators.

Dessa announces Parts Of Speech tour

On June 22nd, Minneapolis lyricist Dessa—“one of the most diverse and talented artists in indie rap” (URB)—will kick off her 20-city ‘Parts of Speech Tour’ in support of her new album of the same name with two sold out shows in her hometown. The tour will take her out to the West Coast including a stop at LA’s Troubadour and wraps up with a play at the Frank Gehry designed Pritzker Pavilion in Chicago’s Millenium Park for the City of Chicago’s “Downtown Sounds” series. A “beautiful writer” whose lyrics are “moving and provocative”, Dessa’s Parts of Speech (out 6/25) is her “most personal, introspective work to date” (Bullet).

As Doomtree collective’s only female emcee, Dessa has established herself as a highly literate and imaginative lyricist, earning praise from NPR, Rolling Stone, Billboard, MTV, and many more with her previous LP. Now, on ‘Parts of Speech,’ the Twin Cities native strikes a compelling balance between the electronic and organic, combining innovative hip-hop beats with multi-layered instrumentation and laying the groundwork for her uniquely expressive rap-sing and whip-smart songwriting. As for Dessa’s live shows, New York’s Village Voice says “Dessa’s fluid, dynamic presence beautifully blends rap and poetry, and does the difficult job of humanizing the explosive beats.”

Watch the lyric video for “dark, hard-stomping” (Billboard) single “Warsaw” from Parts of Speech

A-Trak announces spring world tour dates

Following the chart-topping success of last Fall’s Tuna Melt EP and last week’s Tuna Melt Remixes, A-Trak keeps it moving this week by unveiling tour dates across the globe.

In the US, the April Fools club tour keeps Trizzy close to his loyal base as he embarks to demolish sweaty venues across the continent. Forever bridging scenes and genres, our boy then heads to Europe for the A-Trak Vs The World tour: a series of eclectic back-to-back DJ sets with peers as varied as Mark Ronson, Just Blaze and Tiga.

An A-Trak live set is as exciting as watching a star athlete: he is one of the only DJs still incorporating elements of turntablism into his performances, but the showmanship is not at the sake of energy and brazen style. He’s been demonstrating this with the “Short Cuts” DJ routine video series, in which he deconstructs and rebuilds a track on his turntables; this time none other than his anthemic collaboration with Tommy Trash “Tuna Melt”. The spot debuts on POTATO, the electronic music network he curates alongside Skrillex and Diplo.

Listen to new song “#HottestMC,” produced by Harry Fraud

Danny Brown is on fire: after announcing the “Worst Of Both Worlds” Tour with chart-topping DJ phenomenon Baauer (culminating with sure-to-be triumphant Coachella performances), the Detroit superstar leaked “#HottestMC,” a controversial response to MTV’s list of the same name that instantly garnered praise everywhere from Pitchfork (hailing it as “a devastating slice of messiah-rap meant for an age of false prophets”) to lyrical peers like Kendrick Lamar (who instantly tweeted, “Danny Brown killin this new track. Hard. Uncut tho.”)

Danny’s hot streak will continue to blaze all this spring on the “Old & Reckless” Tour, his first ever solo headlining trek following back-to-back sold-out US tours supporting A$AP Rocky and Childish Gambino.
