Editorial Reviews

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. Narrated by the legendary voice of Don McCorkindale (Radio BBC's The Avengers), featuring the likes of Aloe Blacc, Shana Halligan (Bitter:Sweet), Jennifer Charles (Dan The Automator's Lovage), as well as past collaborators Charlotte Savary, Sara Genn, Mattic, A.S.M, 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.

5.0 out of 5 stars More than just a concept album January 20, 2013
Format:Audio CD
Evidenced by his heavily collaborative trip-hop sobriquet Wax Tailor, Jean-Christophe Le Saoût knows how to spin a spectacular story. Dusty Rainbow`s supernatural diversions call to mind Le Saoût's mother culture of French Cinema so convincingly that I'd bat nary a lash if I encountered a short film adaptation by Jean-Pierre Jeunet, starring Audrey Tatou as the sly mother. Of course it comes as no surprise that nearly half of the tracks on Dusty Rainbow feature guest artists. These include a number of old friends such as the quivering Charlotte Savary, hip-hop troupe A.S.M, and French MC Mattic (who's Facebook page made me laugh: "The multi-talented MC describes his `Past Futuristic Rhyme Animal' style as a futuristic voyage through the past [uhh???]...he crafts many worlds within his music that is replete with samples and magical rhymes"). Well, his "magical" rhymes are certainly right at home in Dusty Rainbow. Making their Waxy debut are Elysian Fields' knee-weakening Jennifer Charles, and Detroit's Elzhi alongside the holy moly luscious Akua Naru.

Let's forget about the narrative for a moment. Featuring solid pop jams like the sensuous, quasi-Flamenco "Only Once," the funky mambo-groove "Heart Stop," and the soul-meltingly retro "My Window," Dusty Rainbow excels in terms of pure musical aesthetics. Wielding his preferred compositional tools--frequent sampling, cascading orchestral textures, and intricate, cross-genre rhythmic underpinnings--Wax Tailor crafts an album whose 56-odd minutes pack a parsimonious punch.

In many ways, it's a synesthetic trip, with masterfully coordinated music and lyrics.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the funnest listens August 13, 2013
By Brian
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
First off, apologies for I am not a music snob. I just aspire to be. I don't have a 1,000 word review for you hear dissecting each song's nuances.

I listen to a lot of different genres but prefer those inspired by EDM. I don't know how to pin this album down, which may be the beauty of it. It is a combination of a vocal narrative, vocals, instruments, electronic elements and a fair amount of samples (many of them vintage sounding).

It sounds like a remix of a 70's fusion concept album to me. It's refreshing to hear something different, so I say - worth the download. Plus if you are a hipster, I really doubt many people have heard of Wax Tailor, so you can reply when asked what this is "some obscure group you have probably never heard of"

5.0 out of 5 stars Play it again, mon December 3, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I am a late-comer to Wax Tailor. First time through the CD, I thought "good" but not spectacular. Second play, augmented by a listen to the instrumental CD that accompanies it, my appreciation increased markedly. So much so that I order another of his albums.

5.0 out of 5 stars Instant Classic October 29, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Wax Tailor is a few producers along side J-Dilla, Nujabes, and Dr. Dre that can make people enjoy hip-hop the very moment they take a break from Swizz Beats and the SUPER ANNOYING DJ Khaled. This album here must rank as an INSTANT Classic, the mixes and storyline is just perfect. If you just buy one album per year, this SHOULD be your one album this year! To me, no one who does not like this album appreciates GOOD hip-hop.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another clasic Wax Tailor album September 20, 2012
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
Not to be missed by Wax Tailor fans and fans of DJ music in general. The concept album, based around a bedtime story hauntingly narrated by Don McCorkindale, flows naturally across themes of childhood wonder, sadness, discovery, and imagination.
Among Wax Tailor's albums it seems closer in style to Forgotten Melodies than In the Mood, which to me is a good thing. I love the atmospheric aura of the album, and the more frequent use of samples. The vocals are reasonable, bringing back many singers from previous Tailor albums. But the vocals not as interesting as the music itself, which I find to be the case in all Wax Tailor albums.
Once again, this is another great Wax Tailor production.

3.0 out of 5 stars Always interesting
Wax Tailor is never dull, but I'd recommend his other recordings such as Forgotten Melodies or Hope and Sorrow over this. And the instrumental disc works well.
