With his fifth studio album “By Any Beats Necessary” (out October 14th), Wax Tailor
gives us a new take on the western frontier, leading us on a fabled road where Blues, Psychedelic Rock, Soul, Funk and Hip-Hop collide.

Wax Tailor answers the “call of the wild” with a personal take on a fabled road where blues, psychedelic rock, soul funk and hip-hop collide. The first excerpt from his 2016 album takes us in the deep confines of the Mississippi.

Built around a sample of the blues classic “Once I Had A Woman“, the track showcases an evolution in writing, with a more beat-driven approach. Buckle your seat belts, and let the French beat maker take you on this new journey.

Wax Tailor Debuts New Track with Ghostface Killah on Stereogum

The lead single for Wax Tailor’s upcoming fall album, ‘By Any Beats Necessary’, featuring rap legend Ghostface Killah, has just dropped on Stereogum. Here’s what he has to say about the track and album:

Without going too deep into politics, the album’s title reflects my determination to use all kinds of sounds and textures to get to something musical. The word “beat” also draws a line towards the Beat Gen- eration, Kerouac’s famous novel On The Road, and the quest for an better place. And so, in this time when each of us needs a little escape, I conceptualized this album as the soundtrack to a better elsewhere that I imagined to be the south western part of the USA.

Wax Tailor’s “Sometimes”, as recorded live in 2014 with full symphonic orchestra will grace the sportscast of ESPN’s “First Take“. Nicely done Wax!
