Channel Tres Drops Laidback Bop “Skate Depot”
Released under his own label, Art For Their Good, “Skate Depot” is an ode to roller rinks, with a nostalgic vibe that takes you back to a Saturday night at Rollerama. The track was released alongside a music video directed by Mancy Gant, which features Channel Tres roller skating around sun-soaked Los Angeles with all the time in the world. “We shook and jiving let them problems pass you by,” he sings on the track over a chill yet whimsical house beat. The video and track together evoke a deep longing for a return to simpler times.
Channel Tres’ upcoming mixtape, affectionately titled I Can’t Go Outside, is expected to be his most personal project to date. Though it does not yet have a released date, the mixtape will most definitely be a must listen when it drops.
