SUNDAY, 5/15 at 2pm -> Ahhhhhh yes. It’s that time of year again. Spring, Summer and every other kind of weather are in the air in Denver and it’s time to kick off Goodness w/DJ Low Key & Friends Season 5 on The Meadowlark’s magical patio!!!
For the season opener, we’ll be welcoming out San Francisco favorite and renowned party rocker Deejay Theory, known for rocking all sorts of tropical flavors, ridiculous edits and other dopeness, and co-founder of The Solution and all around great DJ, Sounds Supreme, to kick off the fun. On top of that, we’ll be debuting complimentary new Goodness patches for the first 25 people to show up every week (while supplies last) and super fresh, all matte white Goodness buttons for everybody, all day long. And speaking of Goodness buttons, you’ll definitely want to get yourself one, a patch or dust off last year’s yellow button because in our ever-challenging mission to maintain the party’s integrity, vibe and make the most of our limited space, we’re going to be instituting a $10 cover for the party.
The point of the cover isn’t to tax the regulars who’ve made the last 4 Summers INCREDIBLE, it’s to try to keep the vibe that made the last 4 Summers so special intact as the neighborhood and Denver both change at a rapid pace. With that said, if you wear a Goodness button or patch to the party or join the e-mail list (top right corner at djlowkey.com) and show our weekly e-mail, you’ll be able to get in to the party for FREE. Things are gonna work on a per person basis, so if there’s two people, both need to wear a button and/or sign up for the e-mail list and show the weekly e-mail. Sorry to complicate things, but hopefully this helps us keep the vibe intact and with the funds from randoms, we’ll be able to continue to bring out ridiculously talented DJs from all around the country, create more cool stuff like the lighters, cups, buttons, patches and such and even more interesting randomness throughout the Summer.
As usual, we’ll be featuring the one and only Knower Of The Ledge capturing all the fun in photo form for our Instagram and Facebook pages (don’t forget to tag your own photos/videos with our hastag, #GDNSS). To keep everyone refreshed, we’re excited to have birthday boy Antoine Sullivan take over agua fresca duty and you can expect to have delicious strawberry, pineapple and rotating other flavors to keep you feeling right all Summer long. Last but not least, we’re also super excited to be welcoming Highland Tap & Burger into the fold of food vendors we’ve worked with, they’re one of my favorite spots in Denver and they’ll be offering different tasty treats every week, starting with delicious carnitas tacos and homemade chips and salsa to kick things off (while not a taco spot, they’ve won awards at Top Taco and other local competitions, on top of their renowned burgers and other offerings).
P.S. Early arrival recommended. Based on every other season opener, it’s probably gonna be probably be a crazy day *crosses fingers*.
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 to release music we believe in and constantly strive to upgrade everything we can about the party. Hopefully you’ll dig some of the new projects we work on as we try to figure out what exactly the next level is and take the party there.
If you follow us or come out regularly, I’m sure you’ve noticed that we praise and shout out our crowd constantly. We know that there are DJs trying to throw cool niche parties like The Solution all over the world that don’t pan out, often times because there’s not a musically inclined, open-minded crowd coming out to help get the party off the ground, and we know that we could very easily be in the same boat without your love and support, so on that note, let me thank you on behalf of the whole crew for an INCREDIBLE 8 years and cheers to many, many more Denver!!! – DJ Low Key
So anyway, let’s talk 2015 and all the great stuff we have lined up to celebrate our 8 year anniversary! On an all month long note, we’re excited to bring together an all-star lineup of Denver favorites for The Art Of Records IV:4 Decades Of Classics, the latest in our ongoing art show series based around reimaginations of classic album art and the vinyl records the sound and art are immortalized on. 2/6/15 is the show’s opening party and to make sure there’s ample time for everyone to take in the artwork before things get too crazy, we’re going to be starting the party early, at 7pm, for First Friday fun. Check out the fantastic lineup of artists we have contributing to the show:
Dunn The Signtologist
On top of the beautiful surroundings, we’ll be welcoming party co-founder Sounds Supreme out to join weekly residents DJ Low Key & Lazy Eyez on the turntables for what’s sure to be some inspired music. We’re excited to start getting Sounds Supreme back involved in the party with monthly guest spots, so stay tuned for more from him. We’ll also be celebrating the birthdays of our two favorite photographers, official Solution photographer Knower Of The Ledge aka Armando Geneyro and his #TheyShootn associate Blake Jackson. Both of these guys have taken a ton of great photos of the party & probably you if you’re a party regular, so make sure to wish them the best and grab them a birthday drink or two.
As if that wasn’t enough, Filthe is going to bless us with live ‘bring your own shirt’ screenprinting once again!!! Bring a tee, sweatshirt, hoodie, sweatpants, etc and he’ll customize it into fresh new Solution gear, on us!!! Don’t have a shirt to bring in? Don’t worry, we’ll have some available for sale too! Check out the picture above from last time around (when he helped us retire our previous logo) for a taste. We also had to bring in two longtime friends of the party to do some quick, mid-party performances of their party anthems. CRL CRRLL will be performing “Cheers”, party favorite and the first single from the upcoming Solution Tape #2 and Yonnas from BLKHRTS will be performing “Porties”, their super dope club anthem from last year. We’ll also have some nice new Solution buttons, hot off the press, as well as party photos by Knower Of The Ledge & ZenOne. Whew. That was a lot. Gonna be a classic night, don’t miss it!!! Things kick off at 7pm, no cover until 11pm & just $5 after. 2701 Larimer Street.
Friday, 10/10 -> CRL CRRLL “Cheers” video shoot at The Solution w/DJ Low Key, Lazy Eyez & special guest Sounds Supreme at The Meadowlark! Introducing ZenOne, photos by Knower Of The Ledge & more, shouts to Black Sock Productions too!!!
FRIDAY, 10/10 -> We’re super excited to welcome a few friends down for an extra special Friday night of The Solution. First off, we’ll be teaming up with Black Sock Productions to shoot some footage for CRL CRRLL’s upcoming video for the INCREDIBLE song “Cheers”, which you’ve probably heard us play by now as it happens to be one of our favorite songs out and the first single from the upcoming Solution Tape #2.
On top of that, we’ll also be welcoming Solution co-founder and party rocker extraordinaire DJ Sounds Supreme back to join party residents DJ Low Key & Lazy Eyez on the turntables. It’s always a blast when Sounds comes back for a guest spot and 10/10 should be no different. Last but definitely not least, we’re excited to announce that Goodness favorite ZenOne is coming on board as a new party sponsor. As usual, Knower Of The Ledge will be in the place making you look good with his party photos (check our Instagram and Facebook for proof) and we’ll be rocking all the best in hip hop and lots more at The Meadowlark (2701 Larimer St). 21+ / 9pm / No cover until 11pm, only $5 after.
P.S. The patio heaters are on and ready for Fall, so we shouldn’t miss a beat as the seasons change!!!

We’ve got another three guests in store for this Sunday, with Solution co-founder Sounds Supreme, my favorite female selecta in Denver, DJ Izer, and DJ Pat Allen (aka DJ Boo Bear) joining me on the turntables for some Red, White & Blue Goodness over the Forth Of July weekend.
