Undoubtedly my most eagerly awaited album of 2012, now that I half believe it actually will come out in 2012, and follow up to one of the best Alt-Hip Hop albums of all time ‘Deltron Event II’ has finally been confirmed for a July 21st release. Or May, according to another rumour but as the July date came straight from Kid Koala that’s probably the one to go with. Although given this album’s status as Hip Hop’s Duke Nukem Forever/Chinese Democracy (only in development terms that is, I’m assuming it won’t be shit and/or have Axl Rose on it) I won’t take anything as a certainty until I’ve got it blasting out of some speakers.
A couple of rough demos were released about a year back, in amongst hints that it’d be a 2011 release, unpolished as they are I took them as a positive contact (seewhatididthere!?!) from the Deltron team. If nothing else they at least dispelled some inherent paranoia about what would emerge after 12 years (!) with Del, The Automator and Kid Koala away from their collective Deltron persona.
