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…). In The Mood For Life was recorded over the last six months of 2008 between New York City and Paris and features vocal contributions from UK artists Charlie Winston & Dionne Charles, Americans Ali Harter & Sara Genn as well as the returning participation of past collaborators Charlotte Savary, Voice, A.S.M. & Mattic. The writing has continued to evolve from where Hope & Sorrow left off, emphasizing string instruments and more mature arrangements. In the Mood for Life is an organic landscape with orchestral accents where Soul, Funk, Hip-Hop or 60’s Pop Music intertwine, to create one eagerly awaited 52 minute journey.
