Soulful and lyrically enticing, CE delivers avant soul that's easy on the ears. Single "Soulstiss," based on looped, evocative vocal samples and minimal electronic drums, fluctuates between Hip Hop and R&B, but builds on an atmoshpere and production a lot moodier than those genre got us used to, transporting the listener into a spiritual realm where CE's smooth vocals act as a comforting agent. The emerging Brooklyn artist self-produced this track, which will be included in his forthcoming LP, "Songs in the Key of Solitude," with the help of Will Fraker and Matt FX. If this song is any indication of how it will sound, we can certainly look forward to feeding our souls. Catch him playing this Wednesday the 8th at Rockwood Music Hall with Space Captain & Bells Atlas. - Lea Phillips
