Tensei are a Chicago-based production crew consisting of Simple X and Midas Wells, and together they have come up with an EP that is an example of their work and what they’re trying to accomplish with their music. It’s called One, and the EP features contributions from The Ones, Scud One, Phenom, Khari Lemuel, Scarlet Monk.
What kind of music this is? They create some smoothed out jazz-influenced soul and funk, but balance things with some head nod-worthy hip-hop, done primarily with real instrumentation and a collective of musicians helping them on their mission.
Don’t miss them on their mission.
(NOTE: The player below highlights 7 of the 10 tracks. The 7 tracks create the “EP”, but the three with vocals turn One into a full length album. If you like what you hear, show support by making a purchase.)
