Show Info

A multifaceted artist with three Victoires de la Musique nominations, France’s Grammy equivalent, Wax Tailor is one of the leading voices of the international post hip-hop and downtempo scenes. With 4 albums under his belt, as well as nearly 500 concerts in more than 50 countries, he entices fans worldwide with a unique musical blend of Hip-Hop, Soul and Funk enhanced by a sense of storytelling akin to a film director’s. Developed over the course of two years, “The Dusty Rainbow Experience” is a musical tale about the evocative power of music. Narrated by Don McCorkindale, who voiced the BBC’s serialized version of the classic TV show “The Avengers”, the show weaves together narrated episodes and songs, and takes us on a wandering path through psychedelic trip-hop and baroque hip-hop. To create a unique live expericence around the album’s universe, Wax Tailor worked with a team of 20 directors to craft a multi-media experience that has sold out shows everywhere and will appear at over 50 music festivals over the summer. Wax Tailor has collaborated with numerous artists, such as Sharon Jones, Aloe Blacc, Ursula Rucker, Keziah Jones, Charlie Winston, Alice Russell, Charlotte Savary, A.S.M, Mattic, Archive, RJD2, DJ Format, DJ Vadim, General Elektriks, Daedelus and many more… He has played live at the London Olympics and curated the Cannes Film Festival’s 60th Anniversary ceremony. www.waxtailor.com
