Denitia and Sene
Like cooly smoking a Cuban cigar—or a loosie, rather, in the case of Denitia and Sene—a smooth sound requires a smooth operator, and the Brooklyn duo seamlessly combine fire and ice, style and finesse, and a little Badu with a little Badon't to forge their own special blend of electro-soul. Formerly two individual musicians on their own separate paths, Denitia Odigie and Brian "Sene" Marc released their first collaboration together less than two years ago, (an EP called Blah Blah Blah), and eventually their album debut his and hers in 2013 via Input. Electronic production with R&B leanings form the cloud their sound floats on, but with every new single, the twosome uses their sweet panache to dream up new limits to push past each time.
