Denver-based electro funk aficionado, Michal Menert, just released his third, highly anticipated, full-length album entitled Space Jazz. Although Menert has already staked his musical claim in the soul and hip-hop arena, his new LP is a standing testament to his musical versatility and ability to seamlessly incorporate a variety of musical influences under one original sound. With no regard to customs or trends, Michal Menert’s Space Jazz opens up a realm of new possibilities for electronic fans as it cannot be classified under a concrete genre or style.
As a key player in the world of soulful electro, Menert diverges from, yet simultaneously plays off of his roots for this newest release, mostly due to the fact that he has recently been performing with over a dozen collaborators and musicians, collectively called the “Big Band.” This “Big Band” is a new creative musical outlet for Menert and its influence is strongly heard throughout Space Jazz. With a total of twelve different collaborators, ranging from Dominic Lalli of Big Gigantic, Borham Lee of Break Science, and Manic Focus, Space Jazz boasts live drums, fusion jazz with synthesizers, hip-hop, soul, blues, and electronic influences.
From its spacey and washed-out tracks, to its wide range of styles, Space Jazz utilizes a span of musical perspectives and musical creativity to convey a style that is gentle, deep and soulful. A truly innovative, fresh, funky, and forward-thinking release from one of electronic music’s best!
