Day 2 of Axon Punk CyberJamz
Deltron 3030 – City Rising From The Ashes (Video 2) ft. Mike Patton
Here is a more recent song from one of the OGs of mixing cyberpunk and hip hop – Delton 3030.
Deltron 3030 is a combination of Del The Funky Homosapien, Dan the Automator, and Kid Koala. Their self-titled album is a phenomenal, operatic concept album that I still absolutely love and is one of the core pillars of inspiration and touchstones for Axon Punk. Also, the album was released in 2000 and is a perfect album for the transition into the new millennium.
This song and video do a great job of demonstrating what it could be like if a corporate employee in Axon Punk had their cyberbrain hacked by an AI. Once inside his brain, the AI could manipulate the employee’s senses to create the augmented-reality visions of the animated graffiti. Using the visions, the AI manipulates and guides the man into a secret elevator that takes him out of the Corporate Sector and into the Civilian Zone. In Axon Punk, the megacities are divided between Corporate Sectors and the self-regulated Civilian Zones. All playable characters in Axon Punk live in a Civilian Zone, but it is possible to have a “Corporate” background. This video is also an example of how a person with a Corporate background can end up in the CZ.
