“denitia and sene […] have no problem channeling Sade and Lauryn Hill on their new track “Divided.”” – FILTER Magazine
“…an effortless, snuggly gem primed for late Saturday mornings tangled in rumpled covers.” – The FADER
Brooklyn-based denitia and sene have mastered the fine art of soulful sensuality with their luscious, smooth-as-silk sound. The duo effortlessly melds elements of electronic, hip hop, R&B & soul in equal doses- a reflection of Denitia Odigie & Sene’s respectively diverse musical backgrounds.
denitia and sene are featured as part of four emerging Red Bull Sound Select artists (also including Tapioca and the Flea, Bagheera & Thurz) who will be digitally releasing brand new tracks via iTunes. These four tracks are off the forthcoming Red Bull Sound Select Record Store Day split 7” which is free with purchase on April 19th exclusively at all official Record Store Day retailers. Furthermore, each incredible song was produced by an established music luminary as part of an RBSS mentor collaboration. These four diverse artists recently performed at Red Bull Sound Select Presents: 4 Days in Austin, often opening for the musicians who produced their respective songs.
denitia & sene stepped away from their usual production magic on “Divided.” Sene, who is normally at the production helm, handed the reigns over to twin brother producers Christian Rich (Pharrell Williams/N.E.R.D., Pusha T, Lupe Fiasco). “Divided” opens into a stark sonic landscape, with Denitia’s rich, flawless vocals effortlessly filling any vacant space. Her vocals act as an interpretation of the storyline that songwriter, Sene, has laid out. “Divided” is available on iTunes beginning today.
