Channel Tres cultivates a groove on ‘I Can’t Go Outside’ EP
A titular emblem of the 2020 zeitgeist, Channel Tres‘ I Can’t Go Outside EP has landed after a cursory October tease (“Skate Depot“). The expectedly kinetic collection of hip-house cuts centers around the Californian’s spoken vocals, which can be found sitting in velvety suspension atop textured instrumentals for the duration of I Can’t Go Outside.
Seventy-one percent of the seven-song parcel finds Tres in solo command of the individual tracklistings; Tyler, The Creator and Tinashe pick up the sole two guest slots on the exclusive affair. Armed with a groove all its own, I Can’t Go Outside is poised to invigorate contemporary sonic circles, as Tres has done all year long through cameos (see SG Lewis‘ “Impact“), and of course, his own re-imaginative (“Gimme Love [Channel Tres Remix]”) and original endeavors. I Can’t Go Outside makes an EP trio for the tastemaker, following 2019’s penultimate Black Moses and 2018’s Channel Tres.
