Five years after his road trip into the Great American West on By Any Beats Necessary, we now see the return Wax Tailor, France's richest tailor when it comes to cinematic references. Because as always, this fifth studio album is an audio movie, a "sonic feature film", as the artist puts it. And Jean-Christophe Le Saût remains within his musical spectrum, running from trip hop to abstract hip-hop, with samples from all eras. The cast isn't bad either, with the raucous timbre of the most famous freelance vocalist in America Mark Lanegan (Screaming Trees, Mad Season, Queens of the Stone Age...) on Just a Candle, for a rather folky trip that would sound good in a Nevada desert, or the Californian rapper Del The Funky Homosapien, who makes light work of a very 60s American rhythm. It is clear that Wax Tailor is not done with the United States, as evidenced by the Trumpian dystopia of the music video for the single Misery, with a contribution from Rosemary Standley of French band Moriarty, or this nod to Gil Scott-Heron on the interlude Paint It Black. Also worth noting on this album, which should be played all the way through in a single sitting, the remarkable appearance of the South African rapper Yugen Blakrok, who was previously spotted in 2019 on the soundtrack of Black Panther led by Kendrick Lamar. © Smaël Bouaici/Qobuz

It's been four years since Jean Dasso alias Yeahman entered the scene, first with his bass music/tropical "Ghetto Sonido" nights in Toulouse, then with the track Miniyamba (featuring the sweet vocals of singers Mina Shankha and Hajna) in 2017, which allowed him to catch the eye of Wonderwheel Recordings. Led from Brooklyn by DJ Nickodemus, the label hosts big names of the "global bass" circuit such as Quantic, Chancha Via Circuito, DJ Khalab or El Buho, and offered its first long format to Yeahman, who, honouring the image of the adventurer, went to record in Dakar, Naples, Marseille and Toulouse.The Frenchman proves right from the opening that he's got something, on the catchy dreamy samba Deelahli, with the almost erased voice of Mina Shankha, then the ultra-smooth Baixi Baixi, accompanied by the two Portuguese sisters of Aluna Project on a charango and a dembow rhythm. But Yeahman also likes square rhythms, like on Soupe au Feu and its chopped string samples, Sakoneta (and its kora made in Dakar) or GLI-F4, all supported by a silky and hypnotic house beat. We find Mina Shankha and Hajna on a cover of the Peruvian cumba standard Cariñito, then Omar Zidia. Singer and guitarist of the Tuareg group Ezza on Ouloullou, before closing this Qobuzissime journey in the Ostriconi (a paradisaical Corsican region) with the folktronica of the British producer Robin Perkins, alias El Búho, Yeahman's new label mate and undoubtedly future travel companion. © Smaël Bouaici/Qobuz

Though it's a close race, Kruder & Dorfmeister make for better DJs than producers, as witnessed by their volume in the DJ-Kicks series. Beginning with downbeat trip-hop including Herbaliser, Statik Sound System, and Thievery Corporation, Kruder & Dorfmeister flow through jazzy drum'n'bass (with Aquasky and JMJ & Flytronix) and techno (with Hardfloor and Showroom Recordings). K&D sound much more relaxed and involved than on their own G-Stoned EP. © John Bush /TiVo
