Limited physical edition of this Brooklyn duo's debut album, with a bonus track not available digitally. Snow Dog Records presents the limited physical edition of the debut album by Brooklyn R&B duo denitia and sene. Brooklyn duo denitia and sene (spelled in lower case) are part of the emerging vibrant movement of underground American soul musicians that embrace electronics, analog synths and MPCs. The Weeknd, The Internet and THEEsatisfaction all share the heady, soulful and innovative feel that permeates the debut album his and hers. Sultry vocals delivered by denitia with back-ups from the previously-unheard (on the microphone) sene combine for a result that will rank with debuts for years to come. The other, perhaps inadvertent element of his and hers is the downtempo/beat/programming backdrop provided by sene. A veteran of collaborations with Blu and Chief, both important figures in underground hip-hop, with past releases on Plug Research (who debuted Flying Lotus), sene is of the producer generation that includes Exile, Oddisee and Sa-Ra, yet his compositions on his and hers hark back to the lazy beats of Massive Attack and Portishead. denitia's warm tones compliment the heady mix, channeling Sade and even Usher. The effortless-sounding result falls outside all the easy categories. Elements of electronica recur, but the soul, electro and hip-hop references creep in and make you rewind.
