Per transcendence and stylistic indefintion, multifaceted St. Louis artist, As.e returns for his first track in more than a year, a THEMpeople produced, Daniel Caesar inspired, bold new take on his sonic approach. Wine & Rice is as soothingly mellow and impassionedly performed as anything in his canon that provides his listeners a new texture – one that we all hope he continues to pursue. 

 

His 2017 EP, A.se 4oreverly was reeling in emotion and subtle softness in its own way, but the feeling born from Wine & Rice is something altogether more acoustic, wholesome, and genuinely relatable. A comfortable maturation of his naturally gifted sound that, through a series of shifts in cadence and the always clever editing of the Chicago collaborative, shines a light on his ability to write, croon, rap, adapt, and bring together the soft edges of his R&B futurist / neo-soul bounds within the modern reaches of stylistic transcendence and creative push.
