When we first heard that Dan the Automator had tapped David Chang for a track on the long-anticipated Deltron 3030: Event II, we reached out to the Momofuku boss to find out what the hell it was all about. Amusingly, he barely remembered—like so many before him who have spit hot fire in the booth, he just sort of blacked out and started “riffing on the future of food.”
Well, this rare chef-producer collabo is no longer shrouded in mystery—the album dropped on September 30, and you can cop it on iTunes right now. Over a thumping drum beat, Chang talks about food in the year 3040, when we’ll apparently be able to just press a button to get whatever we want: beluga caviar, T-bone steaks, otoro, and “anti-inflammatory fish,” whatever that means. We will be able stick a piece of gum in our mouths, put something up our noses, and taste a “strawberry from a specific time and era.”
The punch line? “With all this crazy technology, I can cook anything. But customers only want to eat beet salads and pork buns.”
You crazy for this one, D-Chang.
