Positive Contact

Sci-fi hip-hop. It sounds dorky, but it's not. Well, maybe it is, frankly I don't trust myself 100% to be able to tell whether it is nerdy or not, but I do know that it's good: Deltron 3030 is part of the Dr. Octagon / Handsome Boy Modeling School / Gorillaz series of high-concept albums by Dan the Automator (and Del Tha Funkee Homosapien).

It's about some kind of mech warrior in the year 3030 A.D. who becomes disillusioned and turns into a rebellious MC, burning The Man's systems with high powered viruses and empowering the downtrodden with rhyme. Anyway, it's good, and this song in particular I find catchy in an interesting way: positive contact.

My sister and her husband saw Gorillaz a couple months ago, and she said she was able to peek around a curtain and see Dan the Automator just kind of hanging around. "I was disappointed, he just looked a normal, boring Asian guy."
