It wasn’t until a few moments before writing this post, that I feel I came across one of soundcloud’s best kept secrets. It comes in the form of a compilation of what are to me some of the best chilled out tunes I’ve heard in awhile. It comes as no shock I hadn’t heard of the whispers surroundingthis project as Pilerats Records was unknown to me, but you bet your ass they are no more and will no longer be. This compilation contains 12 tracks from some of my favorite artists. From Odesza to Vaski to Ryan Hemsworth to Chiefs and so many more, this “Rat Pack,” is all that and a bag of potato chips. It opens up with an incredibly beautiful and melodic tune from Odezsa into an unexpected jaw dropping collab between Chiefs and Vaski. Trippy Turtle also enters the scene with a bouncy, hypnotic remix of Bell Biv DeVoe’s “Poison,” bringing the tempo up a notch. On top of these show stopping openers the rest of the compilation contains some beautifully chill and stunning tunes that will be sure to leave you speechless and your ears more than pleased.Be sure to check out Pilerats as this Austrailian label is to take over 2014.
