In a time where there is so much division among people due to politics, deep rooted hate, and social injustice, Chicago based production duo, Tensei chooses to spread positive vibrations as they provide an uplifting collection of modern soul fusion with Constellate; their upcoming body of work due on the 21st of January.
Midas Wells and Chris Kramer spearhead a soulful, electronic and hip hop infused perspective to Chicago’s growing spiritual jazz movement and for Constellate, the tandem enlists the likes of Fela Kuti-mentored Najite Agindotan, Makaya McCraven, Greg Spero and Junius Paul among others for these stellar, introspective and thought-provoking compositions.
On Where Will You Be, Najite Agindotan and Yaw stake a claim on the grooves. Followed by Liv Warfield from Prince’s New Power Generation and other highlights which include the harp-infused Liquid Tongues, the soul pop of Never Alone, the Fela meets Curtis vibes on Ask Them and more to discover come January 21st, the official release date of Tensei’s Constellate.
The album can be pre-ordered here. In the meantime, familiarize yourself with the avant-garde video for Liquid Tongues.
