Bite Me Perfects More Remixes

Completing so much since his debut release, Bite Me has gained quite the following. Maxing out at around 15k followers on soundcloud. It is because his good ear in original production and remixes, impressing many ears with his take on GTA X Skrillex. While his original work stands out with a dramatic and crisp sound and style that is becoming identifiable to the artist. His latest just keeps topping his last as this self-taught artist continues to learn and improve and at the same time gifting the fruit of his labor for free!

Continuing a trend of female vocals in his remixes, it is handled well with synths, piano and heavy bass. Polina‘s vocal house track Little Babylon is transformed into a melodic trap anthem that maintains a fresh energy from start to finish, like an adrenaline rush. Takin it a step further Bite Me takes Fallen by Freefall and Savannah Low in a different direction. Standing out in remix package competition the house track designed for the dance floor was flipped on its head. Doing justice for the vocals you can get caught in a trance amongst the lyrics and synths floating over hats and snares but in an instant bass will takes over. Nothing but gold from this artist so far and he is only starting, so keep your ears open for his next tune.

Option4 Stimulates Minds & Ears with EP Comic Project

Though based in Denver, CO Brennen Bryarly stays close to his Chicago family with roots deeply embedded in deep house and underground. Under the alias Option4 he took the underground Chicago house sound and made his own formula out of it and continues to push his creative limits. His influence has given him opportunities to befriend Chicago artists’ like Autograf and remix a track or collaborate with. He has also been able to take his Chicago influence to his home in Denver and reshape the underground house scene there with his promotional company the Hundred and music festival Cloak & Dagger.

Over the last month Option4 has been releasing a new project little by little through NestHQ releases. Working with Sweat It Out label on this, this project is outside the box than your conventional EP releases. Collaborating with Ashley Jones on art illustrations, Brennen has created a soundtrack for an alternate reality comic book series based upon characters and friends in his music career and home city of Denver, CO. The outcome is quite an entertaining and interactive experience between fans and the artist.

The comic is based upon the legalization of marijuana in Denver, CO and the expectations that came out of it vs the reality. Many believed the legalization of the herb would raise crime rate levels as a consequence. What has happened was quite the opposite, the city thrived economically and everyone was too baked and happy to produce crime. This comic portrays the expectations of the fearful public and as the listener and reader you can listen to and watch as the story unfolds with every release.

Tink may have been silent for a while but she is vocal and making her self known once more. Getting us re-acquainted with her mindset, she breaks her silence with Count It Up. Counting up her blessings and her profits over her ambitions, well deserved after spending long days and long nights workin hard doing what you love. Not long after Winters Diary 4 follows. Not a month old and over a million people played and got something unexpected! A soul embracing 15 track album that is leaving her followers inspired and empowered. It is available to stream right here.

The unexpected is somewhat consistent with an artist like Tink. Releasing music from soul she switches up genres to match vibe and her colors. Tink surprises round the Clock and she does it again. Collaborating with My Digital Enemy they create a genre bending Rap infused Bass House beat that will get your blood pumping. Not an unfamiliar genre for Tink having worked with Tazer on bass beat dubbed Wet Dollars, later to be remixed by Zeds Dead. Needless to say we are glad Tink is back and blowing our minds. Sounds like she has a lot more up her sleeves.

What So Not Jumps Genres With Divide and Conquer

What So Not continues to experiment with different sounds across the electronic music spectrum. We heard his try with a hip hop collaboration with Tkay Maidza and trap and bass sounds in his Gemini EP. Now we see more of a combination of both in recent days; This summer releasing a fair share of genre bending tracks and a music video. Emoh seems to be having fun branching out solo, directing What So Not into newer sounds with creative artists like GANZ, Baauer, Dillon Francis, George Maple, GTA and Tunji Ige to name just a few.

One of the many songs that should be in your playlist this summer, Buried is a beautiful combination of hip hop, female vocals and beat production with George Maple and Rome Fortune. You will sing your soul away among the guitar and synth. A much more ambient song compared to Feel It with GTA and Tunji, yet just as vibrant. Feel It builds with more synths on the high end with vocals quickly leading into an atmospheric drop. Have you jumpin on a cloud.

Now if you want heavy What So Not has heavy. After playing with light synths, WSN hits the studio to work on a new EP project Divide and Conquer. Just as GTA gets ready for an album release this October. Divide and Conquer the single is released following the aforementioned tracks. Not long after releasing the Gemini EP either and this guy is ready to showoff some new sounds. Getting creative on the heavy bassline on this one. A dark trap anthem is born to get a night life crowd pumped. Along with Buried, these songs set the tone for the upcoming EP, this sounds exciting.

Divide & Conquer Out Now
