Hailing from Compton, L.A., producer Channel Tres points to a plethora of distinct formative influences in the formation of his musical character.

Tres' technique of merging hip-hop styles with Detroit and Chicago house, and topping it all off with his signature West Coast vocal chillness. This unique style is evident on his self-titled Channel Tres EP.

Tres, who has for years been sought out by pop stars for his production and songwriting skills, has recently bloomed into his own as a solo artist ready to bring his musical craft to the masses.
