Tensei - Retrospective Mix

Hear it NOW.

Hear more from Tensei HERE.


Hailing from the musical hotbed of Chicago, Tensei (Midas Wells & Chris Kramer) fuse a range of genres such as hip-hop, soul, jazz, library, electronic music, and house, while being steeped in the tradition of classic hip-hop production. However, they do not rely on records for samples: they play and compose most music themselves with real and digital instruments.

They've created a retrospective mix for The Find featuring highlights spanning seven years (dating back to the early Plug Research days), as well as unreleased and new music. The tracks include works with the likes of Black Thought, Bilal, Makaya McCraven, Denmark Vessey, ADaD, Yaw, The Black Opera, among others.

There are also a few teasers in the mix of Tensei's upcoming new releases on Tokyo Dawn Records, kicking off in early 2019.

"Special thanks to Tall Black Guy, J Ivy, Jimetta Rose, Vic Spencer, Finale, A. Billi Free, & Jamall Bufford of The Black Opera for the drops." - Tensei
