French musician/producer Jean-Christophe Le Saoût first emerged as Wax Tailor in 2005 with his breakout album, Tales of the Forgotten Melodies, showcasing a confident and refreshing fusion of cinematic trip-hop, hip-hop, and soul styles. Since then he's continued to master an eclectic fusion of diverse genres, with his latest album, By Any Beats Necessary, just released on October 14th. Wax Tailor's exclusive guest DJ mix for Midnight in a Perfect World spotlights his deep record collection and astute knowledge with a cerebral selection of dusty downtempo beats, moody trip-hop, underground hip-hop, obscure soul, timeless funk, and even some thematically-fitting "Midnight" songs for a heady atmospheric journey.
