Fresh off the the release of their new collaboration, the Twilight Frequency EP, Break Science and Michal Menert will play at New York City’s Irving Plaza on December 6th for a co-headlined show. Fellow Pretty Lights Music Label artist Paul Basic is coming along for the ride as well. New Yorkers have a special place in the heart for Pretty Lights Music, so expect the crowds to come in droves and the artists to respond with the same level of enthusiasm.
Break Science is no stranger to New York, as the Brooklyn based duo has been ingrained in the New York City music scene for years. Individually, Adam Deitch is praised as one of the best young drummers in the world, making a name for himself as a member of funk band Lettuce, drumming faith everyone from Pretty Lights to John Scofield, and producing for the likes of 50 Cent and Talib Kweli. Keyboardist Borahm Lee is highly respected as a touring member of several high profile hip hop acts ranging from Kanye West to Matisyahu. Together they are one of the most excited new livetronica acts, ripping up dance floors with their blend of hip hop, electro, and bass. The duo drops heavy, wobble-filled beats with catchy synths and hard hitting drumming, creating awesome beats live while hip hop lyrics are sampled in.
Half way across the country, Michal Menert has been a staple of the Colorado music scene since he grew up playing in local bands with Derek Smith, better known as Pretty Lights. He even co-produced Pretty Light’s debut album, Taking Up Your Precious Time. His Facebook page describes his music as “hairtronica / sex-jazz”, which may be reason enough to go check him out, but more precisely Menert blends a wide variety of influences, including Eastern European and Western vinyl samples and analog synthesizers to create deep, smooth beats while still maintaining a party vibe. His first full length solo album, Dreaming Of A Bigger Life, was released in 2010 and the follow up Even If It Isn’t Right dropped earlier this year. Menert also performs as a duo with Paul Basic under the name Half Color, which was see an EP release soon as well.
One of the best parts of Pretty Lights Music Label is that they release their music for free via their website, so you can get a taste of each artist before the show here. Break Science’s Monolith Code, Michal Menert’s Even If It Isn’t Right, and Paul Basic’s The Mirror are among the many albums available right now, free of charge.
