Option

After his “While I’m With You” EP back in early 2018, Option finally returns to Detached Audio with a four track solo EP, showcasing the breadth and depth of his sound. After major successes in 2019 so far with “Restrained Light” on Riddim Records with frequent studio partner K2T, as well as a gorgeous bootleg of ‘Sober’ by Mahalia; Option’s “Subtleties” EP adds yet another body of work to his string of top quality releases.

Kicking off with ‘In The Clouds’ which showcases Option’s classic sound that we’ve all come to love from the Hawaiian producer. Deep atmospherics, rolling basslines and rugged drumwork make this a beautiful piece of work that is likely to be in heavy rotation.

‘Sonder’ follows this; displaying Option’s knack of fusing delicate piano work with punchy drumwork. A perfect example of yin and yang, this track effortlessly packs weight and beauty.

Option then takes his music in a deeper direction with ‘Wall of Sleep’, featuring a glitchy vocal courtesy of Detached boss K2T. Darker, industrial atmospherics are coupled with an almost techno-influenced roller to exhibit Option’s versatility, while also being a style to keep fans and listeners constantly interested.

Bringing the EP to a close is ‘Time To Go’. Option displays a funkier edge to his sound while also seamlessly blending his classic deep aesthetic. Choppier drumwork add to the groove, constantly switching up the rhythm.

Option’s solo return to the label has been long-awaited, and this EP definitely shows that the wait has been completely worth it, as the producer has managed to build on his sound even further while pushing his style as far as it can go.
