Speaking with BET.com, Martin discusses appreciating Channel Tres’ daring musicality, building his musical family and the love he’s receiving from his Drones album.

I got turned onto Channel Tres through a mutual friend of ours and I got turned onto him before I realized what he looked like, where he was from or what he was about. I just loved the music. So I was a fan of the music for a few months and everything. Then when I found out he was Compton and the West Coast, I was like that’s crazy. When I met him, his vibe was so up-tempo and bright. He came into the studio at midnight like ‘let’s do 10 songs, let’s do this, let’s do that.’ So I felt like he had a lot of energy.”

Terrace Martin’s album, DRONES, is nominated for Best Progressive R&B Album at Sunday’s 65th Annual Grammy Awards.  He is also scheduled to perform at Coachella and later, a Terminal 5 show alongside Robert Glasper and Kamasi Washington.
