In April and May 2004, Delta reconnected with old friend Mark B for an unprecedented national tour that paired an Australian MC with a producer and DJ form the UK. These shows led to their recording of “Mayday”, which would become the lead single for the forthcoming LP.

To complete the album, Delta reached out to friends from the global hip hop fraternity: MURS, of the famed LA independent crew Living Legends, New York’s Mojo and Melbourne elder statesmen Prowla and Trem. Most significantly, he returned to London, where Mark B provided the majority of production for what would become one of Australia’s most highly regarded hip hop albums. The Lostralian was released in early 2006 on Prowla and Menace’s Nuffsaid Records imprint. Rapturous reviews followed, with high praise from international media in particular.

Since The Lostralian, Delta has maintained his non-stop schedule of travelling and touring. The completion of his album only intensified his passion for the art of MCing and seeking out rare gems in the dusty record crates of the world. His stage show, always with three-time Australian DMC champion Staen1, is now the stuff of legend, thanks to seamless MC/DJ interaction, crowd-pleasing freestyles and his ever-expanding repertoire of recorded material.

Between long haul flights and performances, Delta has crafted his sequel, aptly titled The Second Story. It’s a story he tells with help old friends and new: Mark B, Mojo, The Dap-Kings, Psycho Les, Milano, Prowla and M-Phazes and more. The art apparent on The Lostralian is elevated and polished to perfection. The record excels: darker and more insightful, but at the same time more playful, with verses that have the listener reaching for rewind. In addition, it boasts a production aesthetic that evokes, but never attempts to emulate, the records that originally made hip hop such a powerful force in popular culture. It’s a sound unheard from the southern hemisphere. Welcome to Lostralia.
