There is an inescapable groove to the music of Channel Tres. The Los Angeles-based producer, artist, and singer finds himself moving through the enduring dance floors of Detroit House with the provocative attitude of West Coast rap to arrive at a take on dance music that feels like it could have not been reached by anyone else but him. The inherent distinctiveness of a Channel Tres record is Channel Tres himself. The sentiment itself seems simple and obvious enough, but the true weight of all it becomes apparent the second you hit play.
First officially stepping into the spotlight with a remix of Aaron Childs’ “Tangerine” that bridged the worlds of funk, soul, and dance under one glorious just-shy-of-five-minute production, Channel Tres’ debut remix was one that received widespread critical acclaim. However, it would be the release of his debut and breakout single “Controller” that would put the Compton artist on the map. Tres continued to see success with the release of his self-titled EP in 2018 and further singles, including his latest in "Black Moses" featuring JPEGMAFIA.
2019 has already been one hell of a year for Channel Tres. In addition to supporting Childish Gambino on his Australian tour dates, the rapper made appearances at some of the world’s most esteemed festivals, including Splendour in the Grass, Movement, and Primavera Sound. If that wasn’t enough, he’s also been hard at work in the studio, working on remixes for Mark Ronson, Toro y Moi, Smino, and August 08 in addition to recording his own sophomore EP.Black Moses is now available worldwide and you deserve to listen now.
