Highly Melanated: Channel Tres Tells Us What He’s Been Doing In Isolation

Channel Tres was meant to be heading back to Australia for the third time at the end of this month. Now that that tour has been indefinitely postponed, the Los Angeleno finds himself stuck in his room with no choice but to make more music. “This has been a different time of recording because I’m in my room and I don’t have a lot of distractions,” Channel tells Eva on Highly Melanated. “I can't just go to my friend’s house or go to a party. I’ve got to actually stay with this stuff. It kind of reminds me of when I was in college and away from home, so I just had to study.”

The 28-year-old is yet to release a full-length album, but has been drip-feeding his fans with singles and remixes since his 2019 EP Black Moses, insisting that he is careful that his creative output is not limited by his attention to detail. “I am a perfectionist, but I try to not be unhealthy about it.”
