Del The Funky Homosapien has been one of my favorite recording artists (notice I didn’t qualify that with a genre) since “Virus” on that Deltron 3030 album. If you sleepted on that, you must proceed here for processing. So freakin’ brilliant. But I digress. Here’s Del again in top form, continuing further edification in “Heavy 101.”
Del The Funky Homosapien – “Heavy 101” (mp3 link expired)
DL from delthefunkyhomosapien.bandcamp.com in any format known to man.
Buy the whole digital album from delthefunkyhomosapien.bandcamp.com/album for $3 or more. Yep, pick your price, is the deal, which is as forward thinking as the material. Sleep not lest ye be slept.
This record completely blew my mind when it came out. I wore it out for a year. Rediscovering it now, as it is has been digitally released. Del is a head and shoulders above most of his peers, lyrically. His flows are ambitious, hilarious, unconventional, intelligent, and just basically devastating. Here he pays tribute to the “Mastermind” – as in the producer who cooked up the music for these tracks, none other than Dan the Automator. Also check out the video for Virus, another gem from this essential album, which you can pick up in digi or CD form. Has my highest recommendation.
