I’m a big fan of Channel Tres‘ house music with spoken word vocals and funk in its DNA.
On his latest track, The dancefloor is open til ‘6am’. Channel Tres has clearly heard about Ireland’s upcoming licensing law changes.
Which is just as well, as we spied that the Compton musician is coming to play Dublin next year, Sunday March 26th 2023 in the Button Factory.
Tickets on sale now priced at €22.90 plus fees.
New song ‘6am’ is from the forthcoming debut full-length album Real Cultural Sh*t, which is forthcoming from GODMODE/RCA RECORDS.
The music video for the song features Channel Tres and crew dancing in LA on the streets and is directed by Tajana Williams.
“6am is a happy song, and I never really let myself make happy songs. For me right now, this song represents the grind, and sometimes when things get hard you just gotta dance your way through it. I wanted to create a song for people to come together and dance. Some people get off work at 6 am, some people leave the club at 6 am and this can be the soundtrack to it all.”
“Some people say this ain’t black music. Well it ain’t. It’s black precision. And I’m as precise as they can be.”– Channel Tres
About Channel Tres:
‘6am’ follows a series of crowd-moving singles from Channel Tres including “Acid In My Blood/Ganzfeld Experiment,” “Just Can’t Get Enough,” and “No Limit,” a laid-back track about cherished memories and the refusal to accept life’s limitations. Real Cultural Sh*t will be Channel’s most authentic work yet and a proper introduction to Compton house.
House music has experienced a mainstream resurgence in 2022, but Channel Tres has continually proven to be a pioneer in the space—he’s ahead of the curve. “Compton house” is his invention, a blend of the rhythms of Chicago house and Detroit techno with the snarl of West Coast rap. It’s an irresistible formula. His deep, Barry White-like baritone has found fans in everyone from Tyler, The Creator to Elton John to Barack Obama. He’s toured the world with artists like Robyn, Vince Staples, Disclosure, and Toro y Moi. His music has soundtracked Apple commercials, HBO series, Paris runway shows, and major motion pictures.
Channel Tres blends the drive of Detroit techno and the silky-smooth grooves of Chicago house with the snarl of West Coast rap. His music is no longer the little secret that dance DJs maybe had wished it would stay. He’s toured globally from major festivals to sold-out arenas and found fans in everyone from Elton John to Tyler, the Creator. For Channel, music is about reconnecting with his own history, whether it’s in his lyrics, or through the influences and musical history, he uncovers in his productions. 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.
Channel continues to expand his growing list of unique collaborators with a feature on Mura Masa’s “Hollaback Bitch,” featuring Shy Girl. He recently collaborated with Honey Dijon on her alluring new single “Show Me Some Love (feat. Sadie Walker),” and was featured on the seductive focus track “Attention Whore,” from Tove Lo’s new album Dirt Femme.
