Polo & Pan stand firmly in club territory with Channel Tres on ‘Tunnel’
Written by Rhythm 86 on June 8, 2021
Polo & Pan have turned in their third single “Tunnel,” ahead of the pair’s forthcoming June 25 album, Cyclorama. Following “Feel Good” and more recently, “Ani Kuni,” this time, the maestros merge together for a “night drive between Paris and LA,” tapping Compton’s Channel Tres for an unlikely yet ever-welcomed summertime house heater.
The tune trickles in classic synthwork from the Parisian pair, pouring down into a 120-BPM pulse before flooding listener’s ears with the sleek and sultry vocals that can only belong to crossover hip-hop sensation Channel Tres. The five-minute excursion picks up, imbuing now-distorted vocals backed by scintillating production that remains one of Polo & Pan’s signature characteristics. Speaking on working with Tres, the acclaimed duo gushed with gratitude in an Instagram post stating,
“He guided us wisely on our first incursion into urban musical territory and ensured we delivered a razor-sharp sensual club track together.”
As their debut 2017 studio album Caravelle focused on the voyage though space, Cyclorama sees fans on a journey through time. Described by the two as “a musical odyssey through the steps of human existence from birth to adulthood to death…and transcendence,” the upcoming album will surely be a trip within itself. Head down the rabbit hole with “Tunnel” below and stay tuned for the full June 25 release of Cyclorama.
