Deltron 3030 - Deltron 3030 [The Samples]



A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away, three homies named Del tha Funkee Homosapien, Dan the Automator and Kid Koala merged into the form of Deltron 3030, protectors of the free world. Okay, okay, enough with my fan-fiction steez. But Deltron 3030, released in the dawn of the new millenium, may have been the most influential hip hop album of the 21st century if you think about it. The project paved the way for the formation of the Gorillaz, propelling the image of a world comprised of iTunes and iPods. The album is also infamous for it's subject matter and thematic style. But when it comes down to it, Deltron 3030 was just a funky, eerie, trippy, psychedelic trip into the reaches of the unknown; and it became an underground/trip hop/indie classic. The samples on this joint are all over the place, strictly off the wall. Sh*t, it's even got a skit/song from ol' school Sesame Street episodes (I kid you not)! Make sure you cop this sample set. And if you haven't heard the original album, you have absolutely no excuse not to anymore because it's just been re-issued courtesy of Traffic Entertainment/Hieroglyphics Imperium. The instrumental album is also out there too (if you'd like me to upload it for you, just give me a holla). Now enjoy the show!

  1. Holy God! Thank you, this is awesome. I can't wait for the next album, Kid Koala has said that all his parts have been finished for over a year now, but their still waiting for Del to write the lyrics.

  3. What about the chorus for Madness? I always assumed that was a sample. Or, did Automator record some chick in the studio?

  11. Actually Sean Lennon didn't do the chorus for Madness (he did do some vocals on Memory Loss though). Madness' chorus, as well as the strings, are sampled from a song called "Of Cities and Escapes" by the Poppy Family.

  12. Hey,
    I know it's a pretty old post, but maybe you guys should update it, there are lots more samples exposed (for instance on the whosampled site), could have a more complete package this way. ps. I love this site, been digging on samples myself for a few years now, also hosting a show on sampling in a hungarian radio station. If you feel liek checking it out, go to facebook.com/sampletemple (hope i didn't break any rules with the info's) peace!
