.:RSVP for $3 admission HERE:.

SATURDAY, 8/22 at 8PM -> My June RBSS show with Dam-Funk, Fast4ward & Oren L was RIDICULOUS, and now me & Red Bull Sound Select are teaming for one last time in 2015 to close out Summer with another INSANE lineup. On Saturday, 8/22, we’re welcoming SaveMoney favorite and Chicago’s next big artist to blow, Towkio, Houston’s unofficial mayor Fat Tony, elite Denver rapper F.L., rising star CRL CRRLL & host extraordinaire DJ Lazy Eyez at The Moon Room at Summit Music Hall!!!

If you’re not familiar, Chicago’s Towkio dropped on of 2015′s most interesting projects in .WAV Theory, featuring an all-start line up of contributors including his SaveMoney cohorts Chance The Rapper, Vic Mensa and Leather Cords with ridiculously good production by the like of Kaytranada and Donnie Trumptet (producer of Surf w/Chance & The Social Experiment’s Surf album).

Towkio’s .WAV Theory is a mix of straight up modern day party jams, insightful songs and unbridled creativity, making it a must listen if you want to stay on top of all the best that 2015 has to offer.

Houston’s Fat Tony has become a legend in his city over the last few years while simultaneously developing a crazy cult following all across the country. Tony’s music is a mix of the classic Houston sound with some Austin-type X-factors and rock star swagger that has to be seen live to be understood. Tony’s live show blew me away at SXSW and we’re super excited to properly introduce his music to Denver.

From his days as a prominent member of Denver’s renowned Foodchain collective to a very successful solo career, F.L. (aka F.Lawless), has firmly established himself as one of the best MCs in the city. After working with the likes of Donwill of Tanya Morgan, Truck North of MMJB, Zion I & Homeboy Sandman, Neon Brown has established himself as one of the best producers in Denver and beyond, spanning a wide variety of styles with his sound. Mister Freedom is the new group project between the two, drops the day of the show and from my early listens, stands to further establish F.L. as one of the best MCs in the history of Colorado and position Neon Brown as a go to producer for the rest of 2015 and beyond, check out their singles via soundcloud to hear for yourself.

Denver singer/songwriter/producer/etc CRL CRRLL’s musical stock has steadily been rising over the last few years, with his latest EP Ghost and his single “Cheers” making noise all around the city and getting love from DJs all across the county. CRL CRRLL (pronounced Carl Carrell)’s next project, the WAVE EP, is part 2 of his double Ghost/Wave EP and ounds INSANELY good from my advance listens. Like F.L. & Neon Brown’s Mister Freedom project, it also drops the same day as the show and sounds primed to take the Colorado favorite to a whole ‘nother level.

Things get started at 8pm sharp and with a crazy dope lineup in a small venue, the show should fill up early, so 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 The Moon Room 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 Detour aka Thomas Evan on the FANTASTIC artwork for the show! 18+/8pm/1902 Blake Street.

.: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)!!!

NOTE: RSVP confirmation does not guarantee entry. Entry is first come first served up to capacity, regardless of RSVP. RSVP is also only good for each individual guest. No +1s will be included.

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!!!

YouTube Preview Image

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.

YouTube Preview Image

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.

YouTube Preview Image

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!!!

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.

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.

Thursday, 3/5 -> Red Bull Sound Select Denver w/Tokimonsta, Anderson .Paak & The Free Nationals, CRL CRRLL & Fast4ward at Larimer Lounge, curated by DJ Low Key & hosted by Lazy Eyez! RSVP at RedBullSoundSelect.com to get in for only $3!!!

.:RSVP for $3 admission HERE:.

THURSDAY, 3/5 -> Last year, I had the honor of curating three Red Bull Sound Select shows in Denver, bringing out the legendary Bun B for a long overdue Denver debut, prodigious rapper Vic Mensa & Leather Chords for their first CO gigs and musical genius Exile and his Dirty Science crew, as well as featuring some of my all-time favorite Colorado artists & more. Now it’s 2015 and I’m super excited my first RBSS show of the new year; Tokimonsta, Anderson .Paak & The Free NationalsCRL CRRLL, Fast4ward & host Lazy Eyez at Larimer Lounge!!! While I’m a hip hop dude first and foremost, anyone who’s seen me DJ knows that my taste in music goes a lot deeper and this show is a great example, filled with incredible artists that have hip hop roots/elements/etc in their music, but make experimental music that doesn’t really fit into a box, in the best way possible.

YouTube Preview Image

If you’re not familiar, Tokimonsta‘s an INSANE producer/DJ from Los Angeles who debuted on Flying Lotus’s Brainfeeder label after blowing cats away at RBMA years prior. Her “2 On” remix was probably the single best remix I heard in 2014 and her latest EP, Desiderium, stays in heavy rotation. The first single from Desiderium is called “Realla” & features the show’s other out of town guest, the unbelievably talented Anderson .Paak.

YouTube Preview Image

Formerly known as Breezy Lovejoy, Anderson .Paak put out both mine & Lazy Eyez’s favorite album of 2014, his stunning debut Venice. Soulfully drawing from a variety musical styles, Anderson’s music includes elements of R&B, rock, funk, house & more, but comes together for a sound that only he seems to be able to pull off. He’ll be rocking with his band The Free Nationals and based off of everything I’ve heard and the music, their live show is one of the best in music right now. Anderson also just dropped the first single from his upcoming collaboration No Worries project with Knxwledge on Stones Throw, check it below.

YouTube Preview Image

Multi-talented, experimental singer/songwriter/producer CRL CRRLL‘s sound is also hard to box in, covering everything from soulful dance tracks, emotive downtempo joints to sophisticated pop anthems with ease. Fast4ward rounds out the bill with his own, one-of-a-kind skills, combining everything from turntables and beatboxing to piccolos and live guitars to create one of the most entertaining live shows I’ve ever seen. Him and CRL CRRLL will be performing their own music, but they’ve also been collaborating in the studio and have a few surprises in store for us, so make sure to come out early to see what they have in store.

Things get started at 8pm sharp and with a super dope lineup, pretty small venue and Tokimonsta headlining, the show should fill up early, so I’d highly recommend getting there early. As if the stacked bill wasn’t enough, you can RSVP at RedBullSoundSelect.com for $3 entry (that’s right, only $3!!! Less than $1 per musical genius on-stage! It’s first come, first serve though, so get there early) and also get access to some great music, videos and more online. Otherwise, it’s still quite a deal at the $15 walk up price, just make sure you show up early, because being ready to pay a $15 cover does you no good at a sold out show. 18+/8pm/2712 Larimer Street.

SATURDAY, 8/30 from 5-10pm -> Earlier this year, I was lucky enough to throw my first two Red Bull Sound Select Denver shows and help make the official Denver debuts from the legendary Bun B & rap prodigies Vic Mensa and Leather Corduroys a reality. This time around, it’s an honor and a pleasure to bring out LA’s infamous Dirty Science crew, with MPC mastermind Exile anchoring a dope lineup including his group with Johaz, Dag Savage, plus the two newest DS crew members, Choosey & Denmark Vessey! Exile has a fantastic history of putting on ridiculously talented artists like Aloe Blacc, Miguel, Blu & Fashawn, don’t miss a chance to catch the best of the present and future Dirty Science crew as they hit Denver!!!

YouTube Preview Image

As if that wasn’t enough, we’re also bringing out longtime Los Angeles favorite Thurz & future soul singer/producer Tiffany Gouché to join Denver’s own Oren L (of the Foodchain) and live production genius Fast For4ward as we debut The Meadowlark’s extra fresh, newly upgraded patio stage. DJ Lazy Eyez will be joining me on DJing and hosting duties and with the show being free with an RSVP at RedBullSoundSelect.com, there’s not a whole lot more we can do to make things any better (although we do have a few more surprises in store for the show, just wait!).

Since it’s a patio show, things get started at 5pm sharp and with a super packed lineup and small venue, we highly recommend RSVPing and getting to the show early.

Last but definitely not least, HUGE shouts to Delton Demarest for the awesome flyer art! 21+/5-10pm/2701 Larimer St.
