Jazz and electronica together? No way, you might say. But the new band Rendezvous has tastefully brought together these two different genres of music, now being dubbed the cross-over of the millennium!
Itai Simon and Hagai Izenberg, the duo comprising Rendezvous, first met in the music school they both went to. Shortly after they became friends, they worked on different concepts and ideas and finally came up with an original vision: the fusion of acid jazz and electronica.
Rendezvous released their EP in 2004, after which their site received an onslaught of downloads and fan reviews. Because of this successful launch, Rendezvous decided to launch an album to whet the appetite of music fans worldwide. In just a few months, Rendezvous' YouTube video snippets received more than 15,000 views – and still counting (www.youtube.com/user/OfficialRendezvous).
After receiving much acclaim from musicians and fans alike, Rendezvous began working on their first album. Their debut album features eight original tracks, all of which have a unique feel. Rendezvous made use of different music formulas for each track to ensure that there is a little bit of everything, producing an audio experience for everyone to enjoy.
Aside from joining electronica and acid jazz, Rendezvous is also merging audio and film for their first album launch. Their music has then become a visual experience, as evidenced by Uzi Adam’s video coverage of Rendezvous’ journey in music.
No strangers to music icons, Rendezvous has joined David Bascombe for the mixing of their tracks. Bascombe is a veteran producer and mix engineer for noteworthy artists like Verve, Kylie Minogue, Moby, and Korn, to name a few. Soon, Rendezvous will be joining the ranks of these music greats once their very first album hits mainstream.
Their music can be downloaded for free at www.rendezvousmusic.co.uk. Also, the debut album of Rendezvous will soon be in your mp3s this year. Video sneak peeks are also available at www.youtube.com/user/OfficialRendezvous. Listen to Rendezvous once, and you’ll want to listen a thousand times more.
