Enter the HotBOi: option4 on creating music with a personality
If there is one thing you need to know about the original HotBOi, it’s that he is taking the house music scene by storm. Fresh off of an epic first half of 2018 playing around the country (including a B2B tour with Dirtybird favorite Worthy), the founder of HotBOi Records knows how to throw down. From a jam packed festival stage to the most intimate night clubs, option4 lets loose with a passion and fervor for the music that makes your feet work.
Embracing the mantra “More House than Tech. More Deep than Disco,” the Denver native has plenty of work showcasing his dedication to the cause. The deep groove inherent in the option4 project is obvious in tracks like ‘To Be Your Baby’ featuring Kid Astronaut and ‘Back2Business,’ his banging single released on Treasure Fingers’ Psycho Disco! label. But perhaps the most impressive and in-your-face display of the HotBOi prowess lies in ‘Lifeline.’ Deep and haunting, minimal and progressive, this tune makes it impossible to deny the individuality that option4 brings to his artistic creations.
After a long year touring and playing music out to fans across the U.S. the head BOi is hitting the studio game hard. There are even rumors of a full length option4 studio album in the works. And although he’s committed to locking himself away, we managed to pull him out of hibernation to bring the hottest of the hot to Seismic! If you’re into groove, rhythm and all together badassery in your house music, you won’t want to miss this set. And if this article hasn’t convinced you yet, perhaps a music video and a short interview with the head HotBOi himself can help!
RealMusic Events: HotBOi Records is an incredibly unique name, but that isn’t all. It feels personal, passionate and so real. Where did the idea for HotBOi originate and what makes the brand feel like is owned by my cool ass neighbor who I go out to drink a beer with after work?
