Wax Tailor - Tales of The Forgotten Melodies (CD)

$9.99

Pluralist and independent artist, Wax Tailor is considered as a defining figure of the trip-hop and orchestral hip-hop scenes. Being now an ambassador of the French scene worldwide, he has gained recognition through the years with five studio albums, two double live albums and about seven hundred concerts in over fifty countries. Wax Tailor has collaborated with numerous artists (Ghostface Killah, Tricky, Sharon Jones, Lee Fields, Ursula Rucker, Keziah Jones, Aloe Blacc, Charlie Winston, Alice Russell, Charlotte Savary, A.SM, Mattic, Archive, RJD2, DJ Format, Dj Vadim, General Elektriks, Daedelus…). After his first two EPs Lost the Way and Que Sera / Where my Heart’s At, Wax Tailor‘s debut album Tales Of The Forgotten Melodies confirmed Wax Tailor‘s status as one of the most compelling artists coming out of France. This album takes you on a 52 minutes long journey into the depth of his “cinematic hip hop” – 18 tracks which will awaken the music lover in you. Wax Tailor uses samples in his music as Film directors use actors. His record is conceived as an orchestral movie between hip-hop and downtempo where Wax Tailor hijacks “The forgotten melodies” and tells a story of his own where each track is a sequence. In this large patchwork of numerous influences and multiple references to the seventh art, major names of the twentieth century music (Doris Day, Nina Simone…) meet Stanly Kubrick, Woody Allen or Alfred Hitchcock and engage in a virtuoso dialogue. An instant classic !
