This October, Michal Menert takes his new project, Michal Menert & the Pretty Fantastics, on the road. Previewing his new ventures into a indie electro-pop world, Michal Menert is taking a break from his typical sound to spend some time exploring. His newest single, “Shanghai,” proves this: reminiscent of early-2000s indie rock, it gathers soft, monotonous vocals (recorded by Menert himself), a bouncy keyboard line, and a head-bobbing rhythm in a lighthearted twist on his soul-derived sound.

 

Menert fans won’t be disappointed though — he has promised to return to his old style and keep it as a feature on his Pretty Fantastics tour. Traditionally, Michal Menert combines electronic elements with soul roots and a straightforward hip-hop feel. His music is melodic and uplifting — an equal balance of danceable tracks and songs you can simply vibe to. His LP “Space Jazz” hits the description right on the head. The music doesn’t belong to one world, but its inspirations are evident: soaring horns and funky guitars collide with synthetic vocal samples and breakbeats for a hypnotic groove only Menert could deliver. With an upcoming rap project with JuBee in the works, audiences can expect a preview of his next project, too. The show is bound to be filled with surprises and exciting experimentation.


 

Menert is joined on the tour by a ragtag gang of instrumentalists and electro soul mavens, including Willdabeast, Russ Liquid, Star Ro, and Marcelo Moxy.
