Hi, Her Name Is, DOCTOR IMPOSTER – Doctor Imposter LP
by Walter Price
The fresh self-titled LP, ‘Doctor Imposter’, from Brooklyn-based producer Brooke C. Vettese’s alt-self is a powder-keg of empowerment. A set that has the same explorative powers that seminal albums such as Parliament’s Funkentelechy Vs. the Placebo Syndrome, Deee-Lite’s World Clique, Beastie Boys’ Paul’s Boutique, and Rapsodys’s Crown, have had on us all.
Full of hi-fi-on-11 beats, funk, old school R&B (replete with the 70s-style spoken word), soul, electronica, and hip hop, this LP is a calling card for this brilliant producer-on-the-rise. And in a world in which she thrives being a near all-boys club, these twelve tracks have a direct and much-needed narrative. As DOCTOR IMPOSTER explains, “When I came up with the concept of DOCTOR IMPOSTER I had come to a point in my life where I knew I should feel more confidence as a music professional. I was fed up with noticing I was being treated differently in every aspect of the industry, and day-to-day work…The album arc here is this seemingly fearless woman who is trying to play the ‘game’ of the music industry as it is laid out for women.”
And CONFIDENCE is written all over this release and it’s absolutely stunning, to say the least. With guest spots by Cool Yan, Joie, and Gi Major, this LP is about to change the indie game…and its about time.
If you want to get yourself acclimated to this indelible good time of an album and its anonymous alter-ego that is DOCTOR IMPOSTER, then check out the interlude, “Schlonger After Dark”, and stream the full album as well at the GTC.

“I’m proud of the depth that still comes through lyrically, despite this being a pop record. I’m a passionate feminist and still have fun with the music I make; I never take myself or my music too seriously,” – Brooke Vettese
