Über Wax Tailor
Jean-Christophe Le Saoût, better known as Wax Tailor has earned reputation for his playful mix of hip hop, trip hop and downtempo with the likes of jazz, soul or film samples, often drawing comparisons to DJ Shadow, RJD2 or Portishead – this music would fit seamlessly into Ninja Tune catalogue. He is one of the leading voices of the international electro hip-hop scene.
Last years, to celebrate the 10th anniversary of his career, Wax Tailor launched the Phonovisions Symphonic Orchestra. Alongside an epic 35-piece orchestra and a 17-person choir, the artist embarked on an ambitious re-orchestration of 27 highlights from his 4 albums, to present them in a completely different setting.
