Ep. #43: Del the Funky Homosapien + Kid Koala + Dan the Automator of Deltron 3030

Dan the Automator Nakamura, Kid Koala, and Del the Funky Homsapien make up the legendary hip-hop supergroup Deltron 3030 who just released their long-awaited second album, Deltron 3030: Event II. After making landmark records with Kool Keith and forming Handsome Boy Modelling School with Prince Paul, the Automator furthered his rep by spearheading Deltron 3030 with Del the Funky Homosapien and Kid Koala and releasing their classic, self-titled debut in 2000. Kid Koala is a brilliant man who calls Montreal home. A highly respected turntablist and gifted musician, Koala brings sweet spice to Deltron. Del The Funky Homosapien was already a gifted hip-hop artist before the release of the Deltron 3030 album 13 years ago. The Oakland-bred MC goes all out on every record but the Deltron concept has really sparked his imagination, inspiring a bleak vision of the future. In individual conversations, all three discuss their new album, their fascination with time and the future, how the present isn’t all that great, Deltron’s connection to the film Looper, why Joseph Gordon-Levitt wanted to be on the new record, their current and upcoming projects (including Got a Girl and Beat Intellectual Project), why Deltron might be done after this record, sci-fi, and why even 40 year-old rappers need to land an ollie every once in a while.

Ep. #6: Mark Andersen on the Clash + Kid Koala on Space Cadet

On this episode, I take a closer look at the final years of one of the best rock band of all time, the Clash. While some fans and critics dismiss them, a new book called We Are the Clash: The Last Stand of The Only Band That Mattered is in progress that aims the right some wrongs. Co-author and Washington D.C. social activist Mark Andersen, who by the way, introduced Fugazi at their first ever show at the Wilson Center in 1987, joins me to discuss the Clash and the kickstarter campaign to get the book going. Also, Montreal turntablist Kid Koala is at the Luminato Festival in Toronto this week with a special version of his Space Cadet show, bringing his graphic novel to live in a really unique way.
