POSTPONED to THURSDAY, 2/28 at 7pm due to the snow storm -> It’s Dilla month and you already we’d be bringing something full Jay Dee beats to Denver for a 7th consecutive year (check out our first ever J Dilla party here).  This year we’re teaming up with renowned Dilla expert DJ Check One/Dameion Hines, Sound College & Unit E Gallery to celebrate the life, music and legacy of the late great James Yancey.  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:

Video tribute by DJ Check One

DJ sets by DJ Low Key, Deejay SD & DJ Chonz

Beat tribute by Big J. Beats

7″ Vinyl (45) Donuts sample set by Brik-A-Brak

Live bass and drums by Casey Sidwell & Dameion Hines

Once again, MAKE SURE YOU RSVP IF YOU’RE PLANNING TO ATTEND. 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.
