All Of The People (option4 Remix)
Oh option4. Will there ever be a tune released from your arsenal with which we are not thoroughly in love with? Probably not, but that’s more than okay with your trusty TMN staff. After riding an immense wave of hype since we first featured the Denver based beatsmith over a year ago, option4’s diverse brand of “more house than tech, more deep than disco” dance music finds itself in the midst of its most mature and accessible stretch yet. His latest retooling of Panama Wedding’s “All Of The People” is nothing short of breathtaking either. Fusing a kick drum that is somehow as expansive and wide as it is punchy, those signature option4 vocal chops and a beautifully layed synth/piano line; option4’s production prowess seems to evolve with every passing release while maintaining the musical integrity with which we fell in love with in the first place. The real treat on this one though is the way in which Peter Kirk’s melancholy but pop-fueled vocals mesh their way into such bouncy and groove laden instrumentation. We even dare you to try and stifle the natural head-bob and hip-wiggle which seems to come attached to option4’s entire catalog. You won’t be able to. As an even better bonus, you can snag a free digital copy of option4’s remix from Panama Wedding’s Soundcloud here. Hop to it Ninjas.
