Non-Prog CD Reviews


Daep (single)

Review by Gary Hill

The genre label of "hip hop" tends to create a lot of pre-conceived notions. Get rid of those. I suppose this is hip hop, but overall it lands closer to an electronic music artsy style. Whatever you call it, this is cool. It does earn a parental advisory, though. All in all, I'd like to hear more from this artist. She has an intriguing style.

Track by Track Review
Starting basically with just vocals, the cut grows out from there into a dramatic rhythmically driven movement. The multiple layers of vocals (some rapped and some sung) are cool. There is a world music element to this. I can make out some jazz, as well. Of course, we also get the hip hop edge. This is very much artsy music.
