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

Trip Hop in 10 Albums

At the dawn of the ’90s, the trip hop wave overtook the UK with an electronica sound influenced by Jamaican music and hip hop beats. With their chloroformed rhythms and heavy ambience, Massive Attack, Portishead, Tricky, Morcheeba and several other outfits invented a kind of dark, futuristic and often cinematic soul music. Here’s a spotlight on 10 albums from a genre with blurred sonic borders but a definitive musical influence.
