channel tres will release his new ep black moses this friday 16 august via godmode.  

black moses is of course a nod to isaac hayes, the american soul artist who at first bristled at the sacrilege of his nickname, but then came to see it as a symbol of black pride: "chains that once represented bondage and slavery now can be a sign of power and strength and sexuality and virility.”  the ep features new single and title track feat. jpegmafia, alongside recent singles brilliant n*gga and sexy black timberlake. click here to read his interview with alice.d

his recent australian juggernaut included a rapturous welcome at splendour in the grass, sold-out side shows and performances with childish gambino.  in the past few months, channel has performed at the world's most regarded festivals including primavera sound, movement and field day, released remixes for mark ronson, toro y moi, smino and august 08. next, channel will join toro y moi for an 11-city tour across north america.

following a rapturous welcome at splendour in the grass, sold-out sideshows in melbourne and sydney, and performances as special guest for childish gambino, channel tres today unveils black moses ft jpegmafia.  the title track from the  compton-born artist’s forthcoming second ep premiered today on zane lowe’s beats 1 radio show and received the coveted ‘world record’ title from the globally renowned host.  the black moses ep drops august 16 worldwide via godmode, the la label and production team behind breakout acts like yaeji and shamir.

black moses is of course a nod to isaac hayes, the american soul artist who at first bristled at the sacrilege of his nickname, but then came to see it as a symbol of black pride: "chains that once represented bondage and slavery now can be a sign of power and strength and sexuality and virility." for channel, black moses is also about a complicated sense of responsibility he's begun to feel for his family and community. the track comes reinforced with a gritty verse from rapper and former tourmate jpegmafia, and psilocybe production from godmode's nick sylvester. 

in addition to his recent australian juggernaut, in the past few months, channel has performed at the world's most regarded festivals including primavera sound, movement and field day, released remixes for mark ronson, toro y moi, smino and august 08. he performs later this month as part of the storied moma ps1 warm up series, then joins toro y moi for an 11-city tour across north america. his previous singles brilliant n*gga and sexy black timberlake have received support from the disparate likes of elton john and anderson paak, along with praise from tastemakers pitchfork, npr, billboard, i-d, the fader, bbc radio 1, kcrw, and fact mag, among others.
