Tensei (meaning 'Heaven Star' in Japanese) is the Chicago based producer tandem of Midas Wells and Chris Kramer. Spearheading a soulful, electronic and hip hop infused perspective to Chicago's growing spiritual jazz movement, the tandem has enlisted the likes of Makaya McCraven, Greg Spero and Junius Paul among others for these compositions.
Fela Kuti-mentored Najite Agindotan joins in with Yaw from "Where Will You Be" acclaim on the grooves, followed by Liv Warfield from Prince's New Power Generation, A. Billi Free, Sam Trump, Sulaiman, Jimetta Rose and long-time collaborator ADaD.
Highlights include the harp-infused 'Liquid Tongues', the soul pop of 'Never Alone', the Fela meets Curtis vibes on 'Ask Them', the classic R&B of 'What If' and more to discover.
