What can I say? 2013 was big for boom-bap hip-hop and retro funk and soul.

1. Deltron 3030 – Deltron Event 2
Despite the odd dodgy skit, the second coming of Deltron 3030 was still epic
(NEW) 1. Deltron 3030 – Pay The Price
As previously reported on monkeyboxing, the sequel to Del The Funky Homosapien, Dan The Automator and Kid Koala’s massive underground LP, 2000’s Deltron 3030 was (in time-honoured hip-hop fashion), due out ‘some time ago’…and there still isn’t a release date. But the monkey tirelessly searches the web so you don’t have to which is why we can reliably inform you things are afoot.
According to a recent myspace bulletin there are three forthcoming releases from Oakland-based hip-hop collective Hieroglyphics and a new Deltron 3030 LP. Before you get all excited though, the details weren’t that specific. Actually they weren’t specific at all – for example, the second Deltron 3030 LP looks like it might get a late 2009 or early 2010 release. Then, hot on the heels of Eleventh Hour is Del’s new solo LP Funkman which looks like being jointly released with fellow Hiero rapper, A-Plus’s Pleewater LP in Spring 2009. Apparently the intention is for both of these to be free for fans somehow. Finally, look out for a free Del EP L.E.D. also coming sometime ‘soon’.
