true IMS Industry Insider | Welcome
Pete Tong's Essential New Tune
Channel Tres
This is the debut single from LA-based producer, hipster, rapper, singer, writer and all-round talent with a very fresh sound. Co-produced by Godmode mainman Nick Sylvester, who used to be one of the James Murphy camp and also worked on Yaeji’s Raingurl, so it comes with pedigree. This comes from Channel Tres and it’s definitely got something original going on.
This week's featured Essential New Tune was featured in last week’s Friday show on BBC Radio 1. Listen here.
Label: Godmode
Management: Godmode
