Channel Tres today unveils ‘Black Moses’ featuring JPEGMAFIA. The Black Moses EP drops August 16th worldwide via Godmode, the LA label and production team behind breakout acts like Yaeji and Shamir.

’Black Moses’ is of course a nod to Isaac Hayes, the American soul artist who at first bristled at the sacrilege of his nickname, but then came to see it as a symbol of black pride:

"Chains that once represented bondage and slavery now can be a sign of power and strength and sexuality and virility."

For Channel, Black Moses is also about a complicated sense of responsibility he's begun to feel for his family and community. The track comes reinforced with a gritty verse from rapper and former tourmate JPEGMAFIA, and psilocybe production from Godmode's Nick Sylvester.
