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)!!!

.: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.

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.

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.

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.

Friday, 2/6 at 7pm -> The Solution’s 8 Year Anniversary Party + The Art Of Records IV:4 Decades Of Classics opening! DJ Low Key, Lazy Eyez & guest Sounds Supreme, classic album artwork reimagined by 15 of Denver’s best artists, live screenprinting by Filthe, Armando & Blake’s birthdays, live performances from CRL CRRLL and Yonnas of BLKHRTS, free Solution buttons, ZenOne & more at The Meadowlark!!! #TheSolution8…

FRIDAY, 2/6 at 7pm -> 8 years. Wow. Seems like just yesterday that me & Sounds Supreme started The Solution with no grand plans, just an idea to make the kind of party we wanted to go to and have doing it. At the time, we didn’t know quite what that was, but we knew we were tired of playing the same top 40 records for whatever crowd happened to walk into the club/bar that offered us the most money on a Friday night. The Solution wasn’t the first time either of us tried to start our own party, but somehow we were able to use everything we had learned from previous attempts to promote our own events, combine that with a large amount of youthful determination and somehow get the party of to a good enough start to ride through the initial struggle that starting anything different and unique can be.

Over the last 8 years, we’ve bounced around venues, Sounds Supreme fell back from weekly duties and Lazy Eyez joined the party, we added our official photographer Knower Of The Ledge, we’ve thrown a bunch of offshoot events and done of lot of pretty damn cool stuff, that frankly, I wouldn’t have ever considered a possibility when our little party started. All the changes and particularly the success we’ve had since partnering up with The Meadowlark (who we can’t praise enough) have us hungrier than ever and excited about how far we can take the party. That’s led us to film a video for CRL CRRLL’s “Cheers”, launch a small Solution Records label
