Personally Speaking: Deca’s Leaving A Trail of Breadcrumbs, Baby

Deca's "Breadcrumbs" video thumbnail

I’ve seen him perform live, and he’s a great performer. I feel sorry his competition.

Originally from Denver, and now making life in New York City, this new Hip-Hop artist named Deca delivers a new stop-motion video for his first single “Breadcrumbs”. It is the first video release from his upcoming LP, The Ocean. The highly-stylized stop-motion video begins as Deca and his sidekick, Tibo, answer a distress call from a space station under siege by the forces of evil. After the duo save the space station, the video pan’s out to deep space where two light beings are playing a game of cosmic chess, conveying the message that there are higher forces at work beyond the world that we know.

The song is about societal ills,” explains Deca. “It’s like a man huddled in a corner with drones overhead and used hypodermics lying around him. He’s letting his mind wander and making light of the situation. For the video, the director and animator Steven Mertens and I came up with a sort of dreamlike space odyssey to tie in with the theme of the album.”

In a few weeks, there’s a sequel coming. Be on the lookout. The Ocean will be available on September 17.

*Deca, if you’re reading this, I just wanted to tell you that I love you and I am so proud of you. Some months ago, you called on me for my help and my advice. I appreciated it then and I appreciate it now. It takes great courage to do what you’ve done, and to openly accept criticism from someone as honest as me. It’s happening, kid. Thank you.
