A multifaceted and fiercely independent artist, Wax Tailor (Jean-Christophe Le Saoût) established himself in just a few years as one of the leading voices of the Post hip-hop and downtempo scenes. With 3 albums under his belt, as well as over 400 concerts in over 50 countries, he erupted from France to become an international phenomenon.
Returning with a concept album, Dusty Rainbow From The Dark, Wax Tailor gives us a musical tale inspired in large part by the enchanted world of children. This fourth long player release is also a charming allegory on the escapist power of music. This multicolored fable with an international cast takes us on a wandering path through psychedelic trip-hop and baroque hip-hop. Wax Tailor has redefined his craft, giving us a work that is at once modern and timeless.
