Over the last few months 44 Ardent has given us a few invigorating singles – "95overflow", "nomoreheat", "intothedeep" –while also making promise of his debut EP coming our way soon. He is making good on that promise this week with a very generous seven-track collection of chilled/atmospheric lo-fi house music titled intothedeep.
As he reveals below the EP was inspired by his own overwhelming feelings on climate change and habitat loss, with an overall objective of creating music that makes people feel something. “I initially wrote this EP in response to my feelings about climate change and habitat loss. I was feeling a little bit overwhelmed and channeled my energy into writing. As I kept writing, as usually tends to happen, the songs end up taking on lives of their own." 44 Ardent shares.
Across the breadth of the 7 tracks, the burgeoning artist explores a bouyant variety of soundscapes exploring dynamic elements of loft-house and ambient electronica. Out now on Mammal Sounds Records, the EP is a fine example of the production proficiencies of 44 Ardent.
Blending a potpourri of genres, the EP is emotive and atmospheric. With plenty of styles deployed across electronic elements, intothedeep is a thematic journey through sound.
