"Gian Fiero Review of "Chocolate""

CD SINGLE REVIEW: Mimi & Teft - "Chocolate"
By Gian Fiero - 03/25/2007 - 02:11 PM MDT
Artist: Band: Mimi & Teft
Genre: Dance/Electronica

CD Review: This hypnotic groove from the 5-song EP, "Look Into The Mirror," from the San Francisco Bay Area duo, Mimi & Teft, is sure to capture your attention and imagination with its clean production from Teft (the producer) and sticky melody. Mimi (the vocalist) turns in an atmospheric and surprisingly soulful vocal performance that drives the song. This club track is written and produced well enough to succeed on commercial radio and in the licensing arena.

Advice: Crank up the marketing and promotions machine and push this. - The Muse's Muse

In their first 30 days, Mimi and Teft landed four chart placements with two first-place positions on PureVolume.

Their debut EP, Look Into the Mirror, took the Club and Electronica charts by storm, holding number one spot this week on purevolume. They broke out with the number 10 spot on Pop, and 41 overall, combined genres.

Mimi and Teft also received awards from Garageband this week, including dance track of the day for January 4, 07.

The duo is hitting the Internet streets fast, being one of seven artists chosen to be represented by MusicDish Network at the international music conference MIDEM in January at Cannes, France.

The songwriting team changed their focus last summer from writing for other artists to delivering their own upbeat version of electronic pop. With their first EP, they've definitely delivered.

"Music Review: Mimi and Teft"

Mimi and Teft are a dance/house duo who know how to pump out some sexy pop melodic tunes. Tracks like Fairy Tale (What I’m Saying) sound like they were born for a club dance floor with perfectly delivered vocal hooks and a nice combination of ‘naked’ synths. Have a listen and see if it doesn’t stick in your head. There are also tracks like Chocolate off their debut EP ‘Look Into The Mirror‘ which are more laid back and contemplative but retain the upbeat synth melodies whilst bringing out the soulful quality of Mimi’s vocals which are perhaps best displayed in North Star.

On their website, M&T write about their technique of writing and mixing a song in one hour. To my ears this results in great clean mix that isn’t over-produced. You can see a video of how they pull it off here. Not every track is a hit however, Wachu Wanna falls a little flat for me but that may well be because it sits on the more mainstream pop section of the music spectrum. But then you have songs like You Addicted Me which manages to bring a trance sensibility to a house track, a great combination.

Teft (Christopher Teft Hughes) also has some killer photography you should check out on his site or on flickr. I wonder how many music producers are also into photography? Haha, it’s down to the hard wiring of the ‘artistic’ brain I’m sure.

After reading how Teft puts it all together I’m impressed at the sounds he’s gotten out of Vanguard, I’ll have to try my own hand at it. I don’t think I could pull off a song in an hour, but with a vocalist like Mimi, the hooks write themselves.

Look out for these two, you are going to be hearing more from them in the future I’m sure.
