About 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. In this new opus, Wax Tailor explores with his sampler a world of vinyls and cinematographic references, brandishing as a flag a stamped musical culture and multiplying references to the 7th art in a music written in 33 rpm and 24 images seconds. After the dark The Shadow Of Their Suns released in 2021, Wax Tailor takes the listeners with Fishing For Accidents, on “a brighter and more colorful side without ever betraying his universe and his convictions”.
A multi-recidivist talent scout, he gathers around him a cast ranging from hip hop (Mick Jenkins, Mr. Lif, Kuf Knotz, Lojii, Napoleon Da Legend, Ill Conscious, Voice Monet, David Bars, Mattic) to the indie rock scene (Jennifer Charles, singer of the band Elysian Fields and Victoria Bigelow). With 7 studio albums, more than 800 concerts worldwide, international awards and collaborations: Ghostface Killah (Wu Tang Clan), Del The Funky Homosapien (Gorillaz), Mark Lanegan, Mick Jenkins, Aloe Blacc, D-Smoke, Tricky, Sharon Jones, Lee Fields etc.
