monokhrome An electrifying EP that feels smoother, subtler, and more richly shaded than his debut, without losing any of the potency. Channel's voice is as stunning as ever. Favorite track: Raw Power.

    about the release:

    Today Compton-born artist Channel Tres releases Black Moses via the LA-based label Godmode. The project arrives with three major singles out already, including Beats 1 World Record “Black Moses” featuring JPEGMAFIA, “Sexy Black Timberlake” and “Brilliant N*gga”. Channel introduces fans to two new tracks, “Orpheus”, a lyrical nod to the Greek myth, and “Raw Power”, a trippy ode to The Stooges’ Iggy Pop.

    “Orpheus” opens with silky vocal harmonies set under Channel’s deep baritone, echoing ‘can’t look back’ – a personal mantra to stay focused on the future and an introduction to the rest of the EP. “Brilliant N*gga” bounces in with an irresistible bassline and lyrics that cut through the misconceptions that exist around black culture. “Black Moses” follows as an homage to the iconic American soul artist Isaac Hayes, who repurposed the nickname as a sign of power, strength, and black pride. The track also evokes the complicated sense of responsibility that Channel feels for his family and community. “Sexy Black Timberlake” favors his funk-forward West Coast sound, tackling societal issues that young black men face, either being vilified or objectified for their skin color. “Raw Power” rounds out the EP with psychedelic production elements, dedicated to Iggy Pop and The Stooges’ 1973 song of the same name.

    Includes unlimited streaming of Black Moses via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.

about

Channel Tres Los Angeles, California

Channel Tres grew up in the Compton neighborhood of Los Angeles. His voice is effortlessly deep, as if Barry White didn't realize he was Barry White. 'Controller' is Channel's debut single, out 4/17 on Godmode (Yaeji, Shamir). It's classic Detroit House, reimagined with the surly attitude of West Coast rap. ... more
