Product Details

Summary

Wax Tailor established his reputation in just a few years as one of the leading voices of the post hip-hop and downtempo scenes. Returning with the concept album, Dusty Rainbow From The Dark, the French producer gives us a musical tale inspired in large part by the enchanted world of childhood. His fourth long player is also a charming allegory on the escapist power of music.

To compose this album, Wax Tailor went back to his first love of sampling, but added a unique twist to the process. Instead of trying to replicate loops, the producer gathered textures from the grooves of countless phonograms and reworked them to create entirely new instruments, note by note. This approach enabled him to get a very vintage feel to the sound of the album.

The fall of 2011 was spent in New York alongside singer-songwriter Sara Genn, to pen the plot of the album, and at the start of 2012, the casting for the album began. The first order was to find a narrator, a role which was tailor made for the legendary voice of Don McCorkindale, best known for his work on the serialized radio version of The Avengers, on the BBC. Simultaneously, Wax Tailor cast guest vocalists that would appear on the album, drawing from familiar collaborato (Charlotte Savary, Sara Genn, Mattic, A.S.M, Ali Harter) as well as new voices (Aloe Blacc, Elzhi, Jennifer Charles, Shana Halligan, Akua). Finally, reknowned children book illustator Rebecca Dautremer came on board to create the art that would accompany the story and offer her vision of the main protagonist.

This multicolored fable with an international cast takes us on a wandering path through psychedelic downtempo and baroque hip-hop, to create an album that is at once modern and timeless.

Comment: Too linear and not enough hiphop for my taste. I really enjoyed the first parts of the album but it didnt hold my attention. Overuse of tones production devices make this a very static album. Probably intended that way, but I dont agree with the linear unmoving direction. Overall it was OK
