NEW RELEASE. Del The Funky Homosapien + Amp Live. Wheel Of Fortune
Artist: Del The Funky Homosapien + Amp Live
Title: Wheel Of Fortune
Label: IOT Records
Impact Date: 6th April 2018

‘Gate 13’ is a full-length collaborative album pairing Hieroglyphics veteran and Grammy nominee Del the Funky Homosapien (Gorillaz, Deltron 3030 etc) with Zion I and Unified Highway co-founder Amp Live. After working together during Amp’s Radiohead remix project, these back-when friends from Oakland embark on fifteen tracks filling an electronic melting pot, with guests including Goapele and Eligh. Their chemistry bids to elevate hip-hop through a portal to the progressive, futuristic and fun.

The first single from ‘Gate 13’ spins the ‘Wheel of Fortune’Amp Live’s accessible slice of alien-guided trap, split by a vintage dub skank midway through, is steered by Del’s signature melodious flow, picking off those who “offer little…like trading a yacht for a box of Skittles”. As the wheel starts to spin at a dangerous level of RPMs, the accompanying video plays as a glitchy rogue transmission that keeps the headliners front and centre.  

Amp and Del have previous, the emcee guesting on Zion I’s 2005 ‘What U Hear’ from the duo’s ‘True & Livin’’ album. Several years later, when Amp remixed Radiohead’s ‘In Rainbows’, the producer recruited Del for his rewind of ‘Video Tapes’. Both have long bonded over equipment, technique and advancing the sound and style of the tight-knit Bay Area music community. ‘Gate 13’ brings boom-and-pound to scare the mumblers away, easily commuting to a nearby parallel universe with star-dusted synths and logical, club and radio-friendly equations.
