Phantom Shilla, Sid Pattni and Draft Keepin The Wax Nice and Chilled

This, the third installment (1st and 2nd installments) of the Waxhole Chilled Wax brings Phantoms, Drafts and a great big Sid.  That’s right, we have tracks from the compilation showcased here from Phantom Shilla, Draft and Sid Pattni.  These three tracks represent some varied vibes, but they all maintain that common thread; pure and unadulterated goodness.

In case you’ve just come out from under your rock, or what others might call a decorative stone element, you might have missed the Chilled Wax compilation that dropped on Tuesday (HERE). 

If you have been following along then you know how high esteem we hold all of the artists featured, both musically and personally.  These three artists are no different.

Sid Pattni – About You (Waxhole Chilled Wax Vol. 1 Compilation) by Waxhole

The first track is from our favorite Sid from Perth, Sid Pattni (Soundcloud, Facebook). We first featured Sid back in September when he remixed a great Common track, John the Revelator (HERE). Then he dropped his EP a month later (HERE) and we were hooked. Sid has gotten some great press in his home country of Australia and his greatness is reaching abroad as well. This track shows that he isn’t a one-trick pony. He’s got the goods to be successful for awhile.

Draft – Vanish (Waxhole Chilled Wax Vol. 1 Compilation) by Waxhole

Then we have Draft (Soundcloud, Facebook), a great producer out of London who I happened upon back in September through a fantastic Four Tet remix (HERE), and then a few days later was excited to feature his album (HERE), which is so very good. Draft, or Liam as he’s known in other circles, was very accommodating in putting together a mix of the album just for us so that we could post for our readers. He helped us out and you all helped him out with a fantastic response. This track is one that he had been holding onto for a bit, but knew that this format was perfect for finally releasing it into the wild for the fans of his that had been requesting it for a bit. And whether he had tremendous foresight or we lucked out, I’m not quite sure, but this track does indeed fit the vibe so well and is a great inclusion.

Phantom Shilla – Celsius (Waxhole Chilled Wax Vol. 1 Compilation) by Waxhole

Finally we have Phantom Shilla (Soundcloud, Facebook), or Danny Corker, out of England with his track Celsius. This guy I stumbled upon somehow, some way back in June and I’ve been a big fan ever since. He’s released two EP’s in that span (EP 1, and EP 2) and he gives us single tracks in between and they’re all so good. This one is one of my favorites and he made it on a lark to signify turning a quarter of a century. Whatever the motivation, this producer who hopes to tutor and make a living doing what he loves is really doing good things in my eyes. This track is no different. It’s quintessential Phantom Shilla and reinforces why he was one of the first producers I approached to be a part.
