"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."
