Deltron 3030: Event II received much praise upon its release. The New York Times noted, "Del the Funky Homosapien hasn't lost his verbose velocity, and his partners retain their gift for brooding airs and funk grandeur." Positing the new album alongside its predecessor, FILTER praisedDeltron 3030: Event II as "a gem in its own merit." XXL lauded Del's MC skills, saying he "effervescently glides on and off beat and into double time while nonchalantly flipping sci-fi slang." HipHopDX called the record "a worthy follow-up, well-thought-out standalone project, and a very necessary commentary on society, government, and machinations by which the two interact." Gizmodo noted "The best news in all of this is that after more than a decade of building anticipation, the new album holds up. Actually, it really holds up. The beats are no less incredible, and the lyrics are no less weird and compelling. In fact, there are a lot of parallels between this alien dreamscape and our own, which make the album feel especially relevant."
Deltron 3030: Event II, which is available at iTunes, Amazon and local retailers, 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. 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.
