Denver’s HOMEtown hero, option4 (a.k.a. Brennen Bryarly) returns with a massive EP on world-renowned imprint, Nurvous Records. Arguably his best work yet, Bryarly weaves effortlessly through so many different styles, which draw out completely different emotions from the listener.
“Love Like No Other” starts out as a soulful deep house track with melodic synths and rolling drums, which are complimented by FLASH/LIGHTS‘ soulful male vocals. After a trippy and melodic synth break, the song releases into an awesome deep house groove full of funky basslines that’s perfect for peak-set hours. The B-side, “Black Cats,” is my favorite of the EP, as option4 sticks more to his Chicago roots with this one. Chopped vocal samples, droning bass, and Chicago stabs give this track a more downtempo vibe initially. Then, just as the listener thinks they know where Bryarly is going with the song, a soulful female vocal sample and a disco guitar riff emerges, taking “Black Cats” in a completely different direction before adding a layer of club-ready Chicago bass stabs. option4 really displays his ability to instill emotional elements into his tracks with this EP, and it will surely be the breakout release the budding producer has been looking for!
