Menik is a UK producer based in-between Brighton & London who draws inspiration from a wide variety of genres from blues, rock, acoustic fingerstyle guitar, hip hop, jazz, soul, to latin, house, techno, drum and bass, dubstep and garage. His inspirations take form from his knowledge and deeper understanding of theoretical composition and tireless mixing. Menik is a music insomniac – a fruit bat of a producer – up all night tapping the creative juices the world inspires around him. His music strives to bring something new, always creating something different with a distinctive sound: warm chords, atmospheric noise, glowing piano and driving drums with signature analogue sounds and pop arpeggios. His first releases, 'Close To You' and 'Hold Me EP' (on Rebirth) are testament to the way in which Menik, as a producer, operates inside his sound conducting the use rests, staccatos and crescendo like an engineer with a million different levers, Menik pulls the right ones. Both releases have been well received getting support from the likes of djs such as diverse as Mary Anne Hobbs, Dusky, Ashley Beedle, Simbad and X-Press 2. Menik has been offered the opportunity to develop a close relationship as a collaborator and remix artist with Deep Heads, of particular mention is his take on Saffire D’Souls’ ‘Soul Type’, already a classic. His latest venture see's him team up Taiwanese guzheng player Emma Lin and vocalist Zelda Marshall on a deep electronic track named contact, forthcoming on a Deeper Vibrations charity album to raise money for the children of Syria. With another secret weapon track forthcoming on Rebirth….The future is looking bright!
