Michal Menert is an electronic music artist and producer based in Denver, Colorado. Throughout his youth, his father exposed him to a wide variety of Eastern and Western music, giving Menert fertile soil in which to plant his musical visions. His passion for original analog sounds coupled with a vast knowledge of music history has given him an even larger platform from which to produce. A multi-instrumentalist, he incorporates live guitar and keys into his final production for a full sound and rich feel. By tapping into the world of music that surrounds him, Menert twists and turns day-to-day inspirations into music that is all his own.

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 Even If It Isn’t Right, dropped in the spring of 2012. His musical collaborations have brought him a wealth of inspiration, and led to the formation of a number of ongoing side projects, some of which led to headlining performances at Denver’s Fillmore Auditorium and direct support at Colorado’s Red Rocks Amphitheatre.

The spring of 2015 saw the release of Michal’s third LP, Space Jazz on his own record label 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.

A dynamic and ideological producer, Menert has always taken a community driven approach. He works hand in hand with producers he chooses for his 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.
