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 postive 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.
