For a debut album (out June 7th), it’s a winner from the get go. Menik drops another single from his upcoming body of work that impressed us the minute we started playing “Authentic” featuring Vainsmith on the vocals.
“Authentic” surprised us with the intricate collage approach of field recordings, snippets and quotes from various milestone moments from Menik’s life so far. Some of them even over 28 years old. It’s relentless in the format and something to applaud here. With a clever rap laid upon the beat that drives and adds texture to the final product. It’s essentially an audio biography of Menik’s life experiences.
Menik‘s music isn’t defined by a specific genre. Instead, flowing effortlessly between them, sprinkling immersive pads, retro synths, tasty guitar licks and addictive beats that will cater to a growing fanbase and avid new music aficionados.
