Dessa - Reinventing The Real
Tuesday, October 04, 2011

When Dessa released A Badly Broken Code last year it broke at least one thing in a very good way - the mold. From the emceeing, to the singing, to the poetic aspects of the album, A Badly Broken Code pushed boundaries and showed everything hip-hop can be when it’s done right (which is why this writer made it his number one album of the year). This week Doomtree’s leading lady is back with Castor, The Twin. Castor, The Twin is a new album that isn’t new. Confused? That’s OK. What Dessa has done with Castor, The Twin is re-imagine her work with a trio of talented musicians - bassist Sean McPherson (of Heiruspecs), drummer/vibraphonist Joui Van Phillips, and guitarist/pianist Dustin Kiel. The result is an entirely new sound and feel to Dessa’s work.

I caught up with Dessa to find out what inspired her to put Castor, The Twin together, how her original producers felt about it when she brought up the idea, and why she may not be as thrilled as one might expect if a review says the album is better than sliced bread.
