Wax Tailor

Wax Tailor established his reputation in just a few years as one of the leading voices of the post hip-hop and downtempo scenes. Returning with the concept album, Dusty Rainbow From The Dark, the French producer gives us a musical tale inspired in large part by the enchanted world of childhood. His fourth long player is also a charming allegory on the escapist power of music, featuring the likes of Aloe Blacc, Shana Halligan (from Bitter:Sweet), Jennifer Charles (from Dan The Automator’s Lovage project), Charlotte Savary, Mattic and many more.

To celebrate this new album, the French producer completely revamped his live show. Working with a team of twenty directors, he crafted a visual world to match the album’s storyline, and will take to the stage alongside four musicians (cello, violin, flute & guitar), a female vocalist and an MC. This multicolored fable with an international cast takes us on a wandering path through psychedelic downtempo and baroque hip-hop, to create an piece of work that is at once modern and timeless.
