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.

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)!!!

NOTE: RSVP confirmation does not guarantee entry. Entry is first come first served up to capacity, regardless of RSVP. RSVP is also only good for each individual guest. No +1s will be included.

Saturday, 8/30 at 5pm -> Red Bull Sound Select Denver w/Dirty Science (Exile on the MPC, Dag Savage, Choosey & Denmark Vessey), Thurz, Tiffany Gouche, Oren L & Fast4ward on the Meadowlark’s new patio stage, curated by DJ Low Key & hosted by Lazy Eyez! RSVP at RedBullSoundSelect.com to get in FREE!!!

.:RSVP for FREE admission HERE:.

SATURDAY, 8/30 from 5-10pm -> Earlier this year, I was lucky enough to throw my first two Red Bull Sound Select Denver shows and help make the official Denver debuts from the legendary Bun B & rap prodigies Vic Mensa and Leather Corduroys a reality. This time around, it’s an honor and a pleasure to bring out LA’s infamous Dirty Science crew, with MPC mastermind Exile anchoring a dope lineup including his group with Johaz, Dag Savage, plus the two newest DS crew members, Choosey & Denmark Vessey! Exile has a fantastic history of putting on ridiculously talented artists like Aloe Blacc, Miguel, Blu & Fashawn, don’t miss a chance to catch the best of the present and future Dirty Science crew as they hit Denver!!!

As if that wasn’t enough, we’re also bringing out longtime Los Angeles favorite Thurz & future soul singer/producer Tiffany Gouché to join Denver’s own Oren L (of the Foodchain) and live production genius Fast For4ward as we debut The Meadowlark’s extra fresh, newly upgraded patio stage. DJ Lazy Eyez will be joining me on DJing and hosting duties and with the show being free with an RSVP at RedBullSoundSelect.com, there’s not a whole lot more we can do to make things any better (although we do have a few more surprises in store for the show, just wait!).

Since it’s a patio show, things get started at 5pm sharp and with a super packed lineup and small venue, we highly recommend RSVPing and getting to the show early. Like I already mentioned, you can RSVP at RedBullSoundSelect.com for FREE entry (that’s right, get in FREE!!! It’s first come, first serve though, so come early) and also get access to some great music, videos and more online. Otherwise, it’s still quite a deal of show at $5 (just make sure you show up early, because being ready to pay a $5 cover does you no good at a sold out show). Last but definitely not least, HUGE shouts to Delton Demarest for the awesome flyer art! 21+/5-10pm/2701 Larimer St.

Sunday, 4/27 at 8pm -> Red Bull Sound Select Denver w/The Legendary Bun B, FL, The Reminders & more at the Marquis Theater, curated by DJ Low Key! RSVP at RedBullSoundSelect.com for $5 cover!!!

In one of the most exciting developments of an already amazing 2014, I’ll be curating a series of Red Bull Sound Select shows here in Denver! What does that mean, exactly? It means that every few months this year, I’ll be throwing shows with top national talent and the best of Denver’s local scene, all around the city! My first RBSS show is features the legendary Bun B, Denver favorite FL and CO all-stars The Reminders, with Lazy Eyez & myself hosting and rocking the turntables at The Marquis Theater!!!

It’s gonna be an honor to bring Houston’s honorary mayor and half of pioneering Texas duo UGK (RIP Pimp C), Bun B, out to Denver for a show. As far as I know, he hasn’t been out in Denver since the DNC in 2008 and hasn’t had a public show out here that I can think of; so make sure you save the date and don’t miss a rare chance to see a living legend live and in the flesh. Bun will be joined by The Foodchain’s FL, who’s probably my all-time favorite rapper to come out of Denver, based on his work on the three stellar Foodchain albums and his ridiculously good solo debut, Limbo. FL & Bun will be joined by The Reminders (aka Big Samir & Aja Black), a rare husband and wife rap duo who’s been traveling the country, garnering tons of attention and props from Hiero Day in the Bay to London, England to the Kennedy Center in Washington with their thoughtful brand of hip hop. Me & Lazy Eyez will be rounding out the bill, doubling up between the turntables and hosting duties for what should be a classic night hip hop in The Mile High City.

Things get started at 8pm and with the lineup we’ve got, things should be packed. To make things better, you can RSVP at RedBullSoundSelect.com for $5 entry to the show (that’s right, only $5!!! It’s still first come, first serve til we hit capacity) and access to to some great music, videos and more online. Otherwise, it’s still quite a deal of show at $15 (just make sure you show up early, because being ready to pay a heftier cover does you no good at a sold out show). Last but not least, huge shouts to artist Michael Coriano on the incredible flyer design! 18+/8pm/2009 Larimer St.
