Michal Menert

Paul Basic

Willdabeast

ARTIST BIO

Colorado-based Michal Menert comes from a complex musical background of guitar, keyboards, and a variety of other instruments, giving him a unique approach to composition. Menert co-produced the debut Pretty Lights album, Taking Up Your Precious Time, with Derek Vincent Smith. He has since released his first solo album, Dreaming of a Bigger Life in spring of 2010, and dropped the much-lauded 27 track mega-LP, Even If It Isn’t Right, in April 2012. His sound combines obscure vintage samples from both Eastern European and Western vinyl with rich analog synthesis and organic hard hitting beats; a fusion of yesterday’s elements and tomorrow’s ideas.
