New Release: Tensei – ‘One’ EP + MP3


You may be familiar with Tensei as our winners of the November 2011 Next Step Contest. Of late, this Chicago-based production duo is gearing up for their upcoming full length album with an EP that’s setting quite the standard.

One showcases the producers’ deft technique in using live instrumentation and ‘self-sampling’ to craft their music. The result is a set of some acutely groove-worthy jams. Jam after jam, folks. Get down!

Stream the full EP below and also download the bonus track “For The Love” for free!
