Wax Tailor

If you have been alive for the last 8 years and you are a fan of Electronica, then there is a good chance that you have already heard of the french producer that goes under the moniker "Wax Tailor". His music is largely sample based, sampling audio from antiquated films and records and fusing it with modern sounding Trip-Hop/ Hip-Hop backings. Add some completely unexpected infusions from any musical genre you can think of, and there you have Wax Tailor. For me, RJD2 is the artist most closely reminiscent of Wax Tailor. If RJD2's music had ADHD, the result would probably be something very similar to Wax Tailor's music. This song leaves me very confused, slightly scared, but mostly it leaves me with that funky bassline stuck in my head all day! If you want to have nightmares tonight go ahead and watch the music video that goes along with this track. Seriously.
