44 Ardent Provides Your Lazy Afternoon Soundtrack With ‘pieces’

Australian producer, 44 Ardent is back with another chilled out gem of a single, Pieces. After a small break over the last 12 months, he is now back working on a collection of new tunes that he plans to rollout throughout 2022.

Pieces is a chilled out stripped back number that is perfect for your study or chill beat playlists. It has quite a strong nostalgic vibe to it. The track can go either way in the energy if gives off, both ideal listening to the those rainy afternoons or even bright sunny ones.

“pieces is supposed to sound sort of happy and sad at the same time. The piano and vocal samples combined are a little bit bleak, but then the drums and bassline are quite upbeat. There are also some cool things going on in the stereo imaging of the track. The bass is super wide and sort of engulfs the whole song as it comes in. My favourite part of the song is the subtle snare which does its own thing on the right-hand side of the song and works with the hi-hats to drive everything along. I recommend listening on headphones or playing it on a drive on a rainy day.” –44 Ardent

Pieces is a lovely soft body of work and we’re excited to hear more from 44 Ardent over the coming year. It’s available now, everywhere via our pals at Mammal Sounds.
