“Phone” is the latest single to be released by up and coming R&B Soul artist Ze-LuJ who has laid out an ambient downtempo offering of softly experimental contemporary urban soul for listeners to soak up in their summer playlists.
As much as we appreciated the rhythmic soul which was put behind Ze-LuJ’s latest single, the single lacked a discernible structure, and it was quite easy to feel lost in the mix. While there’s nothing wrong with a little structural experimentalism, with Phone it was hard to make a connection with the soundscape. Which may have also had a little to do with the amount of lyrical repetition and low sound quality. But that’s not to say that Ze-LuJ isn’t an artist with plenty of artistic and creative potential and we’ll be keeping our ear to the ground for new releases from Ze-LuJ.
