Brennen Bryarly, performing under the ominous moniker of option4, is more house than tech and more deep than disco. Though he calls Denver his home, option4's music is deeply rooted in his Windy City past and the sounds of the vibrant underground house scene that places Chicago on everyone's radar. Though he only started focusing on original music in 2013, option4 has quickly gained a reputation for creating sonically textured house music that extends far beyond the fleeting trends of the electronic dance world.

While most producers transition into songwriting from DJing or rely heavily on samples to string together a beat, option4 dives head first into creating his own music from scratch. In his first year in the studio, option4 released two singles, ‘Do Work’ - a hard-hitting tech house track with a deep and rhythmic bassline matched with equally impressive synths, and ‘All The Girls’, which cleverly splices vocals from N.E.R.D.'s ‘Everyone Nose’ while adding a pulsating bass groove and old school house synths creating a dance floor-ready atmosphere.

A year on, option4 has accelerated on to playing live shows across the Midwest, Canada and Los Angeles on headline bills and supports for huge acts such as STS9, Moon Boots, Mighty Mouse and Lane 8. Amid turning out eclectic remixes for Elizabeth Rose, Great Good Fine Ok and Indian Summer amongst more, option4 consistently released exceptional original singles like ‘Love like No Other’ and ‘Deep Diamonds’ to collectively garner over 1.1 million streams on Soundcloud in 2014. A master on the decks, option4 also traded mixes for high-profile
taste makers in fashion and music including Thump, Discobelle, Perrier and international outfitters Frank & Oak.

With more original material on the way and support from the likes of Justin Jay, Bit Funk and more, 2015 will see option4 turn his focus on original tunes with short breaks out of the studio for live shows throughout the U.S and beyond to add to his already impressive list of club and festival line-ups. Take notice -- option4 is well on his way to soaring far beyond the Mile High City.
