Denitia and Sene are back with another beautiful cut today, "The Fan" featuring some strong vocals from the two backed by an eclectic blend of synths and bouncy drums that further expand on the duo's electronically charged sound. These two have been pulling at our heartstrings with their latest releases, "Runnin" and "Divided", and their latest haven't alluded to any full length project/follow-up to his and hers but regardless, "The Fan" will have to hold us all over until then. Stream + download the track below via i-D.

Action Bronson just dropped off one of the most ridiculous videos of the year thus far in "Actin Crazy", and the highly entertaining rapper returns with another win in "Baby Blue", produced by Mark Ronson. Taking a page out of Chance's book, Bronson takes care of the hook duties on this track, which will appear on Bronson's debut album Mr. Wonderful dropping off on March 24th. Despite this track's imminent spitefulness, it retains an uptempo and feelgood vibe in it's production, stream it below while you head over to iTunes for the album pre-order.
Scouring the internet for new music has become a part of our day, and sometimes a name pops up quite frequently, yet for one reason or another you never end up actually following through with that listen.
