Channel Tres Announces Headline Show In Auckland This July

06 June 2019 - 0 Comments

Today, Compton-born artist Channel Tres announces his first ever New Zealand show, presented by Frontier Touring and I Oh You.

Channel Tres also announces the Black Moses EP, his follow-up to last year’s acclaimed self-titled debut. Black Moses will be released 2 August worldwide on Godmode, the LA label and production team who introduced us to Yaeji and Shamir.

First single Sexy Black Timberlake is a fusion of low-slung deep house, West Coast rap, and Channel Tres’ effortlessly deep baritone. Lyrically it’s a taste of some of the larger issues Channel Tres has been grappling with as a young black man on the rise. Society still tends to stereotype black men as one of two extremes: violent threats or mythical sex objects. This song is about being made to feel like the latter.

Sexy Black Timberlake is released alongside another trippy South Central visual served up by director Ian Goodwin, who helmed Channel’s debut Controller video as well as films for Drake, Young Thug, and Cousin Stizz. Check it out here.

In less than a year, Channel Tres has found fans in everyone from Elton John to Anderson .Paak to Disclosure, with Pitchfork, NPR, Gorilla vs. Bear, Triple J, BBC Radio 1, Beats1 and KCRW lining up as early champions. In the first half of this year he toured North America, first with Robyn, then with Vince Staples. In the past month, Channel Tres has taken his mesmerising mix of music and movement to some of the world's most elite festivals, including Primavera Sound (Barcelona), Distortion Festival (Copenhagen), and Field Day (London) – a nice warm-up run for our own Splendour in the Grass (Australia).
