Ahhh, February. You noticed right, that is the sound of fresh, new battle-ready beats you’ve been hearing out of basements and studios around the city as producers, beatmakers and instrumentalists get ready for The 2014 Solution Beat Battle at Beauty Bar Denver (608 E. 13th St)!!! Last year’s battle was a blast, with DJ Spyda T.E.K. edging out Cliff Cage and ten other ridiculously talented producers (recap here via HipHopRollCall.com) to take the 2013 title. This year a dozen producers will be battling for the crown, plus a ridiculous prize package featuring:
-$250 in Akomplice gear
-A $100 Zengo gift card
-$100 in gear from Family Affair
-An interview with internationally acclaimed site, PotholesInMyBlog.com

The competition is always thick and the camaraderie is always off the charts, so head down early and catch Denver beat-making community shining on one of our favorite nights of the year. The main focus is on Denver’s scene and the battle, but we’re also excited to welcome some other ridiculous talent down for the night.
Chicago’s own Brandun Deshay, who’s produced songs for everyone from Danny Brown to Chance The Rapper to Casey Veggies, on top of ripping mics on his own, will be back in Denver after performing at The Solution Showcase last year to rave reviews. He’ll be joined by brilliant one man band and musical genius Fast Forw4rd, 2013 Beat Battle winner DJ Spyda T.E.K. & Denver mainstay Big J. Beats in showcasing music for the crowd, while Solution residents DJ Low Key & Lazy Eyez hold down the turntables and hosting duties for the night.

Unit E is an art gallery space in the Sante Fe Arts District (1201 Sante Fe Dr) and because it’s an art gallery and not a bar/nightclub, we need to make sure everyone coming out RSVPs to either RSVP <at> DenverSolution <dot> com or on the party’s facebook event page by 7pm the night of the event. Per tradition, we’ll have donuts and Sound College tees in the house and as always, an all-star lineup of talent, check it:

Beat tribute by Big J. Beats
7″ Vinyl (45) Donuts sample set by Brik-A-Brak

You can RSVP for your friends as well but we need everyone’s name attending, sending your name +1 is not an option (if your name’s not on the list, you won’t get in, that’s the venue’s policy). Everyone is invited though, you can send as many names as you want as long as you submit them on time, and we’re looking forward to seeing Denver show out for a night of incredible music as we celebrate on of the musical geniuses of our time. 21+/7PM/$5 at the door with RSVP.
