Head over to 20before16.redbull.com/tokimonsta to check out the song and see what I’m talking about…

.:Download/stream the CRL CRRLL “Cheers (Big J. Beats Remix)”:.

Can’t get enough of this newness! Shouts to CRL CRRLL​ & Big J. Beats on this incredible remix of “Cheers”, the first release on The Solution Records!!!

Maybe you already heard it at The Solution​, Goodness w/DJ Low Key & friends​, at a recent live CRL CRRLL show, on Ultra5280​ or its radio premier via Venus Cruz​’s Jazz Odyssey Wednesdays on KUVO Jazz​ last week.

Maybe you got to the WAVE release party early and caught one of the 100 limited 6″ dub plates (b/w Mister Freedom’s super dope “Kevin Ware”) we gave away at last weekend’s Red Bull Sound Select​.

Regardless, the CRL CRRLL “Cheers (Big J. Beats Remix)” is now online for your listening pleasure! Big J. Beats’s take on our official party anthem is FANTASTIC – a triumphantly upbeat, disco funked out version that’s perfect for dance floors, late Summer BBQs and anywhere else celebratory vibes might be needed!!!

Thursday, 6/25 -> Red Bull Sound Select Denver w/DâM-FunK, Fast4ward & Oren L (Killing Kings) at Lost Lake, hosted by DJ Lazy Eyez & curated by DJ Low Key!!! Only $3 with RSVP at RedBullSoundSelect.com!

.:RSVP for $3 admission HERE:.

THURSDAY, 6/25 -> My last Red Bull Sound Select show with headliner Tokimonsta in March was INSANE, filled with a ton of music fans going crazy and ranting more about the lineup that just about any show I’ve ever thrown (no exaggeration, most everyone there was BLOWN AWAY by the 1-2-3 punch of Fast4ward, CRL & Anderson, and they were just the openers). With that said, I’m super excited to be curating my next RBSS show on Thursday, 6/25, featuring Funkmosphere ruler supreme and Stones Throw favorite DâM-FunK, Colorado’s best kept secret Fast4ward, the one of one sounds of Oren L (and his band Killing Kings) and host DJ Lazy Eyez at Lost Lake!!!

If you’re not up on his music, DâM-FunK is one of the most unique acts in today’s musical landscape, bringing the feel good vibes of classic funk and boogie into the 21st century while collaborating with the likes of Snoop Dogg (on the full-length album, 7 Days Of Funk), Toro Y Moi, Steve Arrington, Reggie B, pretty much the entire Stones Throw roster and lots more.

DaM’s live show combines impressive synthwork, DJing, singing and more for a crazy vibe that always sends crowds home smiling. Dam’s just wrapping up a tour with prog-rock legend Todd Rundgren, just dropped a quick 4 song instrumental EP called STFU on StonesThrow.com to rave reviews and is sure to leave Denver in a funk-fueled daze like we’ve never seen before.

Full-fledged musical genius and in my opinion, easily one of the most slept-on artists in the entire country, Fast4ward is also on the bill, bringing his unique, one man band show to Lost Lake for the night. He combines ridiculous skills on everything from turntables to keys to woodwinds to beatboxing in an ever-shifting way that always leaves crowds stunned in amazement. If you’re seen him before, prepare yourself to see him do something different and wildly impressive that the last time and if you’ve never seen him, set your expectations very high and prepare to still be impressed.

Rounding out the bill, Oren L & Killing Kings is back on it and bringing their latest sounds to the show after spending most of the Winter working on music and their new live show. Oren was an integral part of Denver’s renowned collective The Foodchain before releasing his very strong BS|BS|BC solo debut last Summer to a great response. He’ll be rocking with his band Killing Kings, a special guests or two and giving Denver a taste of what him and the band have been working on lately; don’t miss it!!!

YouTube Preview Image

Things get started at 8pm sharp and with a crazy strong lineup, small venue and Dam headlining, the show should fill up early, I’d highly recommend getting there early. If the super dope lineup wasn’t enough, you can RSVP at RedBullSoundSelect.com for $3 entry (that’s right, only $3!!! It’s first come, first serve though, so get to Lost Lake early) and also get access to some top quality music, videos and lots more. Otherwise, the show’s still quite a deal at the $15 door price, just make sure you show up early, because being ready to pay a $15 cover does you no good at a show that’s packed and at capacity before you get there. Last but not least, shouts to Meeg Conroy (IG: @Miss.Meeg) on the INCREDIBLE hand-drawn artwork for the show! 18+/8pm/3602 E Colfax Ave.

.:RSVP for $3 admission HERE:.

P.S. Stay tuned for more great monthly Red Bull Sound Select shows and new music in Denver, curated by myself, Souls In Action & The UMS, all year long (plus more shows all over the country)!!!

Sunday, May 3rd at 2pm -> 2015 Opening Day Goodness w/DJ Low Key & special guests Skillz (Virginia / DJ set & hosting), Dayta (Houston / Kracker Nuttz) & Fast4ward, live art from Jaime Molina & Joseph Martinez, ZenOne, raffles & more!!! Don’t miss season 4′s kickoff on The Meadowlark’s magical patio!

 

SUNDAY, 5/3 at 2pm -> Goodness w/DJ Low Key & friends is back for season 4 and we couldn’t be happier!!! Last Summer was INCREDIBLE and we can’t wait to pick up where we left off last Fall, rocking all sorts of great music, drinking agua frescas and enjoying the best company possible on the Meadowlark’s magical patio (2701 Larimer St)!

To kick off season 4, we’re excited to be bringing out not one, but two ridicululously talented guests to join me on the turntables; legendary rapper/host/DJ (Mad) Skillz from Virginia and one of my favorite DJs in the whole country, Houston’s own Dayta! Skillz has classic rap records with the likes of Q-Tip, The Beatnuts, The Neptunes, Missy & Timbaland, spent the last decade plus on the road as Jazzy Jeff’s official MC and recently just got back from DJing on the Pinkprint tour in Europe. He’s a hip hop legend and the perfect person to help kick off season 4, both as a host and DJ.

Also in from out of town is Dayta, the super dope DJ who just shared the stage with Just Blaze at the SXSW Serato/Okayplayer showcase and keeps Texas up on all the best new music. Dude has some of the best, most unique selection you’re gonna hear all year, come see for yourself!

As if that wasn’t enough, we’re also excited to welcome out Denver’s best kept secret; the man, the myth himself, Fast4ward. If you haven’t seen his one of a kind performances before, you’re gonna have your mind blown and if you have seen him, I’m sure he’ll flip the show, because that’s what he does every time and it’s part of the magic.

We’ve also got two of Denver’s best artists, the infamous Joseph Martinez & Jaime Molina painting live at the party again! Their piece from last Summer’s opener was unbelievably dope and I’m sure whatever they cook up this year will be crazy too!

For food, we’ve proud to announce we’re gonna be working with the fine folks at Cart-Driver (just named best pizza in Denver by Westword’s Best Of Issue) to give y’all COMPLIMENTARY pizza throughout the day to get the season started right. Free pizza that’s the best in town? That’s the plan for the season opener, hopefully you enjoy it!

We’re also happy to be celebrating the birthday of the one and only DJ Discord of the Crunk Brothers, Denver’s favorite Brazilian music expert, so if you see him, wish him the best! To round out the day, ZenOne is also gonna be in the building with some raffles you don’t wanna miss, you already now we’ll have our renowned agua frescas on deck, and as always, official Goodness/Solution photographer Knower Of The Ledge will be in the taking pictures of the party (follow us on Instagram: @GDNSS, if you don’t already). Last but not least, a couple of quick changes to try to make things at the party run smoother:

-We moved the start time up an hour to 2pm, because no matter what, Sundays always seem to fly by too quick.

-We’re gonna start using the front entrance to the bar on the corner of 27th & Larimer St (instead of the side patio entrance).

-Using the front entrance, well be able to open the inside bar, shorten the wait for drinks throughout the day and also relieve the giant clusterfuck of people by the side door/patio bar outside (plus it should be a nice spot to cool off or have a quieter conversation midday too).

-Also, we got stamp. It way cooler than an X on your hand from the door guy.

P.S. On another note, some Latvian rappers (I can’t make this shit up) decided to try to take over the ‪#‎GDNSS‬ hashtag over the Winter and cluttered it up with a strange Eastern block Euro wannabe rap song. PLEASE do me and the party a favor and add #GDNSS to your posts about everything this Summer so we can hopefully reclaim the hashtag we started! I know it’s silly, but thanks in advance Denver!!!

Saturday, 3/21 at 11am -> Austin Goodness w/the legendary Rich Medina, DJ Low Key, DJ Trackstar & 10 ridiculous DJs from all over the country at La Barbecue!!! Free beer, world famous BBQ, giveaways from Greenroom Magazine & Akomplice and more!

Plus don’t miss The Solution Rap Fan Showcase directly after Austin Goodness & featuring Fashawn, Exile & Choosey (of Dirty Science), Statik Selektah, Dee-1, Tef Poe, Tanya Morgan, Black Spade, Iman Omari & a whole lot more at La Barbecue! World renowned BBQ, free beer all day, giveaways from Akomplice & Greenroom Magazine and more during SXSW Music (no wristbands, RSVP of cover)!!!
