59 Perlen has continued his time-tested and successful ways of producing ambient House music with the latest single titled The Worst Thing To Live Without. This is the second single by the Zurich-based artist that will appear on his upcoming album titled Forget About The Music. The Worst Thing To Live Without follows 59 Perlen’s single Swim To You which is a vocal-driven ambient track released in 2022. The Worst Thing To Live Without returns to 59 Perlen’s Deep House roots while continuing his tradition of ambient layers with tactile textures.
59 PERLEN – The Worst Thing To Live Without is built upon a foundation of atmospheric ambiance that combines crackling pink noise with calming fluttering mid-ranged synth drones simulating the sound of life around you. A deep four-on-the-floor kick drum combined with a syncopated monotone bass line and an offbeat hi-hat provide a bouncing feel to the groove underneath the moving ambiance. A lead synth with a texture like a saxophone joins in playing a simple and effective hypnotizing long-toned melody. A brief breakdown section occurs midway through The Worst Thing To Live Without introducing two more layers that will soon join the main groove, ambiance, and melody. These layers include an accented and plucked-sounding synth vamp and synthetic claps on beats two and four. Following the breakdown and the introduction of two new components comes a grand conclusion intertwining all the layers heard throughout the song as the beat returns. All the layers combined allow for a pleasurable listening experience of hearing everything interact despite the melancholic vibe of the track.
Forget About The Music will be the third album released by 59 Perlen upon its release following When Left Alone from 2021 and Moods from 2022. With its abrupt ending, The Worst Thing To Live Without signals that it will be transitioning into another track for a nonstop listening experience. We eagerly await what other gems Forget About The Music will provide as The Worst Thing To Live Without sets the stage for something very special.
