Jean-Christophe Le Saoût is the man behind Wax Tailor, but he is rarely alone. Armed with a hand-picked roster of collaborative artists from Europe and beyond, the French DJ-producer blends imaginative compositions with ethereal melodies, poetically rapped verse and versatile live instrumentation. His fourth studio album, "Dusty Rainbow From the Dark," released in 2012, added a narrative element to bring an extra level of cohesion to the release.

In support of the album, Wax Tailor has been touring much of Europe and the US to bring The Dusty Rainbow Experience to the widest audience yet. Featured in this performance, are charismatic lyricist Daryl Parks, better known as Mattic, and enchanting vocalist Charlotte Savary, who have both been common features throughout the Wax Tailor discography. Their Live at KDHX session presented here gives a three-song taste of the concert experience.
