44 Ardent is an Australian producer who makes chilled lo-fi / atmospheric house music which can be likened to a mix between Bonobo, Caribou and Tourist.
Just last month 44 Ardent returned after a 12-month hiatus with the daydreaming sounds of ‘pieces’ which was met with much praise and attention from fans and music industry curators around the world. He did also give us promise of more new music coming our way throughout the year and he’s already making good on that promise this week with the invigorating sounds of new single ‘95overflow’.
“This song has been remade about four times and started with just the vocal and piano that comes in at around one-minute. The lyrics are sort of a reflection on the bleakness of our changing climate and how it feels like we aren’t really doing that much about it.
I particularly like the transition between the house inspired beat and then the breaks section in the middle of the song. I thought it was a bit odd to have those two styles clashing in one song at first, but it has grown on me. The biggest challenge for this song to work was getting the two concurrent basslines in the chorus to work together without clashing too much. I tried just going with one bassline but two is way more fun.” – 44 Ardent
‘pieces’ is available everywhere now via Mammal Sounds Records.
