This post I’ve decided to put you on to some new musica. There’s this duo Denitia and Sene, that I’ve been listening to for the past couple of years now. I was originally familiar with Sene, the male member of the group, who had been in the hip-hop scene for a few years at that point. One day I was searching for something, anything I could find with him in it. It wasn’t long before I was introduced to Denitia’s smoky vocals. Her sound was classically r&b, yet oddly current at the same time.
Last year they released their first album, entitled His and Hers. The first single, Casanova, heavily featured Sene’s vocals over a stripped, synth-y beat. Reminiscent of the 1980’s, it was another work that belonged in the surge of alternative r&b that has found it’s audience within the past two years. Songs like again .(new ride) and trip.fall feature ethereal melodies over infectious down beats and topped with relaxed vocals. Listening to their music is the equivalent of eating a gourmet burger out of a food truck and washing it down with a Pabst Blue Ribbon. Ironic and generally enjoyable. What else would you expect when a hip-hop artist from the Brooklyn teams up with a soulful folk singer from Texas? Ch-Ch-Check them out here
