Menik is a producer with a preference for music that is colourful, ambient, melodic and driving, and drawing inspiration from everything from blues, rock and hip hop, jazz, house and techno, and everything in between.
Menik introduced himself with the seductive, dreamy and wide-eyed ‘Brothers’ and having released debut album Story Time this month, he’s lifted another single from it ‘Long Distance’ unfurls with poise, shuffling along a soft and seductive hip hop inspired beat. Dripping with melody, it slinks on its merry mellow way through a sea of soothing sounds and dreamy undulations only to be shaken from its slumber by intermittent bouts of frazzled electronics. It is warm and washed-out, chilled and soothing but the beatwork entrusts it is not only transfixing but also infectious.
