Starting with 2018’s “Controller,” Channel Tres has blended the drive of Detroit techno and the silky smooth grooves of Chicago house with the snarl of West Coast rap. For Channel, music is about reconnecting with his own history, whether it’s in his lyrics, or through the influences and musical history he uncovers in his productions. For this project, Channel created a spoken word poem. “I wrote this poem during a time I started realizing and understanding my worth, after I had started making music a few years ago. I was at a point where I realized I was manifesting some of my dreams and I had to tell myself “I’m doing it”.
