Wax Tailor

The NBA season is almost upon us and I ain’t gonna lie, I’m a bit nervous about my Detroit Pistons. I guess that’s better than being cocky like I was last year only to rip my hair out as they lose steam in the playoffs. What do hoops have to do with a French DJ/producer? Well, those of you with NBA 2K7 on pre-order will soon find out. This year’s game gives you more than just the chance to watch digital sweat run off Shaq’s face as he shoots free throws; you get a Dan the Automator-produced soundtrack featuring Wax Tailor’s collabo with North Carolina rap duo The Others, “Walk the Line.” A nice cap to a fine year for Wax Tailor (born JC Le Saoût), whose throwback 12-inch “Que Sera”/”Where My Hearts At” — available for free download at Better Propaganda — was followed by a monster debut album, Tales of the Forgotten Melodies. However, in this post, I’m showcasing Wax Tailor’s skills on the remix because that’s what is available for download at his site. I’m particularly fond of the loping “Guns of Brixton” bassline on the Clash Tribute Remix of “Eye Drink.”
