Channel Tres

Genre: Electronic · Rap/Hip-hop

Origin: United States

Channel Tres emerged from Compton’s musical scene as a purveyor of innovation, pushing the traditional spirit of West Coast rap into unexplored territories. He’s toured globally, from major festivals to sold-out arenas. For Channel, music is about reconnecting with his own history, whether it’s in his lyrics, or through the influences and musical history that he uncovers in his production. His last EP i can’t go outside debuted in Spotify’s Top 10 US Album Debuts with features from Tyler, The Creator and Tinashe. With his forthcoming debut album Head Rush, he opens his most exciting musical chapter to date.

For Channel Tres, the decision to finally drop an LP is a deeply personal one. “There were things about my story that I didn’t know how to express, musically or lyrically,” he says. But after a, sometimes trying, period of growth, he’s finally ready to articulate this chapter of his life: “I would say my artistry has grown to a place where I’m comfortable sharing this much at one time.”

Head Rush is a richly layered record, but one that feels totally intuitive, without a trace of doubt or self-consciousness. Throughout his career, Tres has blended recognizable genres, textures, and points of view into a truly singular form all his own. Longtime listeners will recognize in Head Rush the hallmarks of a Channel Tres record: a mastery of rhythm, the rare ability to make songs sinister and fluorescent at once.
