Robert Lamb writes about the “cosmic hip-hop” of the album
Deltron 3030, by the trio of Del the Funky Homosapien, Kid Koala and Dan the Automator: Space Music: The Futurist Hip-Hop of Deltron 3030 – The Blogs at HowStuffWorks
The album takes us on a socially-conscious, sci-fi journey to 30th century Earth, a dystopian age defined by super science, environmental disaster, intergalactic turmoil and tyrannical rule. The robotic Deltron Zero serves as our guide on this odyssey as he abandons his military programing to rise up against the tyrants of New Earth in a cosmic rap battle.
All the tracks can be heard at Deltron 3030.

And Hadfield is also a musician who will soon premier a new song in space with collaborator Ed Robertson: ‘Is Somebody Singing’: Ed Robertson on why he wanted to work with Chris Hadfield – CBC Music
On Feb. 8, astronaut Chris Hadfield and Barenaked Ladies singer Ed Robertson will premiere “I.S.S. (Is Somebody Singing).” It’s a unique collaboration for a number of reasons, but first and foremost because Hadfield will be floating somewhere in outer space aboard the International Space Station, while Robertson will be joined by a youth choir in the CBC Toronto studios. It’s an out-of-this-world collaboration, to say the least.
For the weeks leading up to the premiere, Robertson will be updating us with interesting aspects about the project, something he says has been in the works for a long time.
