Tou Tou Rendezvous
Musical Style: 60's Boogaloo Soul, Acid jazz, Pop soul, Blues funk
Musical Influences: David Holmes, G.U.R.U., Kutiman, The Bamboos, Grant Green, Wes Montgomery, Chris Joss, Jazzmatazz
Musical Inspiration: It was based on the piano riff we can hear in the song numerous times. It's the main musical element. The song came upon from some blues, hiphop and '60s French popular culture feelings. The music tried to capture similar feelings to the lyrics. Everyday life, flirting, something quite ordinary.
Artist Statement: It's based on a real story, how the singer of the band got to know his wife and how they got together gradually, in many months.
Lyrical Inspiration: Love does not always happen at first sight. It can easily be an gradual thing. Maybe you've been friends with someone for a while and you've never seriously thought there can be a relationship upgrade. Then there comes a turning point and it could be something very unfancy but very intimate at the same time. Something that shows a person vulnerable when your help is needed.
Track Description: “Tou Tou Rendezvous” by Mo’ Gigs tells the tale of love budding over a gradual period of time in a 60s-inspired boogaloo with traces of R&B and acid jazz. The song was built upon the piano motif as the band collaborated and added elements of hip-hop and 60s French pop culture aesthetics to capture the story of a feeling that is unfancy, but intimate at the same time. It is based on a true story of how vocalist Csaba Gál met his wife and features call-and-response sections with fellow vocalist Sarolta Szécsi.
