IN THE MIX

TENSEI | CONSTELLATE

"In a time where there is so much division among people due to politics, deep rooted hate, and social injustice, Tensei choose to 'Constellate', drawing on the power of positive vibrations to provide an uplifting collection of modern soul fusion.

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."

CHICAGO HUSTLE

Oido Selectivo | Selective Listening

We shared the decks with Catherine Perez (aka La Gata) to mix up tropical vibes on vinyl at Punch House in Pilsen on 18 January, 2019. Currently based in Chicago, we celebrated her last set in the city as she prepares to move to Sao Paulo, Brazil. We also partied it up with our dear friend Gina Martinez to welcome another spin around the sun. "Selective Listening" is a beautiful moniker loosely translated to "Oido Selectivo" in Spanish.
