Menert worked as the co-producer with Derek Vincent Smith on the chart topping Pretty Lights album Taking Up Your Precious Time, and was a natural choice to be the first artist to join Pretty Lights Music in 2010 with the release of his solo album, Dreaming of a Bigger Life. Michal’s second album with PLM, the critically acclaimed mega-LP Even If It Isn’t Right, dropped in the spring of 2012. Within just a few short months, Menert was landing headlining slots at some of the most prestigious venues in the country.
His musical collaborations have brought him a wealth of inspiration, and led to the formation of a number of ongoing side projects including Half Color (with Paul Basic), Manic Menert (with Manic Focus), and a slew of others. 2014 saw the culmination of a musical dream with the debut of the Michal Menert Big Band – an 18-piece ensemble led by Michal that performed his catalog in front of thousands, including headlining performances at Denver’s Fillmore Auditorium and direct support at Colorado’s famed Red Rocks Amphitheatre.
A dynamic and ideological producer, Menert has always taken a community driven approach. He works hand in hand with producers he chooses for his own record label, Super Best Records. By collaborating and working closely with a new generation of hip-hop & EDM producers, he’s bringing a new musical vision to life without any imposed limitations.
The Spring of 2015 saw the release of Michal’s third LP, Space Jazz on Super Best Records, to an extraordinary response from fans and press. That fall, Menert released the first LP, “1” with his live indie-soul band Michal Menert & the Pretty Fantastics. His sound combines vintage vinyl samples with rich analog synthesis and organic, hard-hitting beats. It’s a fusion of yesterday’s elements and tomorrow’s ideas. Catch him on tour throughout 2015 and beyond.
