While he continues to work on a new album titled The Shadow Of Their Suns, French trip-hop producer Wax Tailor has unveiled a new single called “Keep It Movin.” The soulful track is a collaboration with U.S. rapper D Smoke and seamlessly blends electro, funk, soul and hip-hop into an irresistible tune.

“Keep It Movin” is a quarantine-recorded song of which Tailor says “I composed this track months ago, I immediately thought that it would be great to work with someone who could inject some great funky energy but still be a lyricist. Someone somewhere between Kendrick & Anderson Paak. When I discovered D Smoke on Netflix I contacted him directly. I usually hate those kind of fake shows but he really used it to shine ‘outside the matrix.’ I knew he was the one I needed to bring the track to the next level & I’m happy we’ve made it. It’s the only positive thing about the quarantine, it gave us time. I really had a great collab with Smoke, he’s brilliant, intelligent & we both got the independent DNA.”
