already with their first releases, kim brown`s productions on the imprint just another beat were highly critically acclaimed. ji-hun kim and julian braun from berlin always tried to widen the perspective on contemporary house music in a very personal, subtle and musical way. in the meantime, they remixed tracks for labels such as freerange, rivulet und fauxpas musik and made two edits for rimini run by oskar offermann. finally in 2013, they released their debut album "somewhere else is going to be good" which became an instant underground hit. groove magazine reviewed it as "one of the best albums made in the last decade". kim brown always play back to back. two complementary individuals who always know how to turn a dancefloor into a soulful, deep and harmonic space.
the REPRESS just got out:
just another beat 008 - kim brown - somewhere else its going to be good (2x12" lp)

thank you very much for being part of a great year for OPTION MUSIC. it was intense, busy and full of changes. the music scene is changing a lot: underground goes mainstream and sometimes it's getting difficult to find the right spot for our artists BUT with changes new OPTIONs are created, we look back into great cooperations with loads of great people who share the same intention in sharing what is most important: love what you do, do what you love. music is our language!
we are happy to look forward to the new year, with new artists, new and old cooperations and new pleasures.
all the best, nadine + mark for option music

OPTION MUSIC is an option for you. its about music and the artists who produce their own special feeling of music, friendship and humanity. maybe its more like a family thing somehow, friendship beside the effort to be important, to have the face of an artist on the frontpage of a music magazine.
option music is my idea of how people could work with eachother, friendly, respectful and not focussed on an income at first. it's a tool, it's not everything, it's what it is: an option
