REMINDER: The Walnut Room is significantly smaller than previous spots we’ve held the DMC at and we HIGHLY RECOMMEND getting a pre-sale ticket ahead of time, as there’s a very good chance the event will sell out. If it does sell out and we hit capacity, there’s nothing that me, DJ Lazy Eyez or the DJs competing can do to get you in, so please keep that in mind and grab a ticket sooner rather than later if you’re looking to check out the event.

Gonna be RIDICULOUS night, can’t wait to see what the battle, DJ Revolution and Chris Karns have in store for us!!!

The CRL CRRLL “Cheers” Video! Directed, filmed & edited by Black Sock Productions!!! It’s the first single from The Solution Tape #2 & first release on The Solution Records!!!!!!!!!

2014’s been an UNBELIEVABLE year for The Solution and we’re thrilled to be closing it out in grand fashion, teaming up with longtime friend of the party and one of our favorite artists in Denver, CRL CRRLL, to release “Cheers” aka the first official single from The Solution Tape #2 (finally!!!) and first release on The Solution Records (!!!!!!!). CRL’s been coming to the party for almost all of the 7+ years we’ve been rocking and makes great music with a unique sound, so when it came time to finally get everything together for our upcoming mixtape, The Solution Tape #2, it only made sense to reach out to him for an exclusive song to feature on the project.

Over the Summer, DJ Low Key met up with CRL CRRLL for a fateful studio visit that led to “Cheers” getting picked out of a batch of incredible music for the mixtape and next thing you know everyone in Denver was loving this song that only DJ Low Key & DJ Lazy Eyez were spinning, whether they heard it at The Solution on a Friday night, saw CRL perform it live, caught it when we DJed a brunch gig or whatever. At that point, we began to realize that “Cheers” was something extra special and decided it deserved as much of a push as we could give it. That turned into us teaming up with Black Sock Productions and Jonathan Martin to shoot a video at Goodness w/DJ Low Key & friends and The Solution, which turned into us deciding that “Cheers” was so good that it needed to get full-on single push, a physical pressing (coming in early 2015!) and so on. It’s funny how something can organically grow so fast, but it’s great to witness and be a part of. And with that said, for your listening pleasure, we’re super proud to present to you, a new celebratory anthem, right on time for New Year’s Eve and all your best moments of 2015; CRL CRRLL “Cheers”, the first single from The Solution Tape #2 (coming 2/2015) & first release on The Solution Records!!!!!!!

The top 6 will each perform a 6 min. routine. The champion of this battle will advance to the 2014 DMC US Finals (date and location tba)

Saturday, 11/9 -> The legendary DJ Chris Karns, special guests DJ Low Key & Sounds Supreme, 4 turntables, free PBRs from 9-10pm & more at Beauty Bar Denver!!!

SATURDAY, 11/9 -> Honored that one of the best DJs in history (no exaggeration), DJ Chris Karns, has invited me and another of my favorites, DJ Sounds Supreme, to rock with him at his new monthly at Beauty Bar Denver.  If you’re not familiar with DJ Chris Karns (fka DJ Vajra), this party will be an excellent time to see why the unquestionable “DJ’s DJ” has won the DMC World Championship, as well as finished top three in both the Red Bull Thre3 Style US Finals and on VH1′s Master Of The Mix TV show (most DJs I know believe he got robbed in the final round but that’s another story…LOL), all while inspiring hundreds of thousands of DJs around the planet.  All this might sound like hyperbole, but after watching Chris teach DJ legends like DJ Q-Bert & DJ Craze techniques he created and burn down clubs with Michael Jordan-like determination to be the best, I’m convinced he’s truly one of the greatest DJs of all-time.

And fuck it, even if I’m wrong or you don’t agree, you’re still catching, me, Chris and Sounds Supreme, with an hour of free PBRs from 9-10pm to get the night going, for the low low price of only $7.  Rock with us Denver, you’ll be glad you did.  Beauty Bar (608 E. 13th St) / 9pm / 21+.

Friday, 2/15 -> Denver Dre Day 2013 at The Solution w/DJ Low Key, Lazy Eyez & special guest DJ Dozen at the Meadowlark…A night full of everything Dr. Dre & more…

 

FRIDAY, 2/15 -> Before we even talk about Dre Day, I gotta shout out everyone who came out to our weekly relaunch/6 year anniversary party/#TheSolution6 kickoff last Friday at the Meadowlark.  I knew it was going to be a good night, but calling it a good party would be an understatement; after a wall to wall packed turnout, complete with a super cool crowd going wild to great music from the likes of Kendrick Lamar, Donald Byrd & Dilla, I think it’s safe to say The Solution’s new weekly home is a hit.  Special guest DJ Izer, Sounds Supreme, Lazy Eyez, and surprise guest DJ Chris Karns aka the DJ formerly known as Vajra aka 2011 DMC world champion, DJ legend and Yelawolf’s touring DJ all tore things down while the crowd went on one wild musical ride (my set went over pretty well too, check out what I played here).  Whether you made it out or not, there are a ton of beautiful pictures of the party on Westword.com and via the Meadowlark’s photobooth on The Solution’s facebook page that you should take a look at.

So let’s talk Dre Day.  Dre Day is a national phenomenon that’s popped up over last few years, as parties all over the country are taking it upon themselves to honor to music and career of Andre Young aka Dr. Dre.  I’m not sure if there’s been one in Denver before, but we’re excited to make one happen.  Me, Lazy Eyez and special guest DJ Dozen (Welcome To The D.O.P.E. Game) will be holding down the turntables and spinning everything Dre related, from the World Class Cru days through the N.W.A-era into the Death Row dynasty and onward to the Aftermath and “Detox” eras, complete with guest spots, original samples, features, other production and everything else Dre’s been affiliated with, all the way up to his Kendrick verses.  21+/Free until 11/$5 after/2701 Larimer St. – DJ Low Key
