WEDNESDAY, 6/26 -> The Solution Showcase is back at Beauty Bar Denver with another ridiculous lineup of talent from Denver all the way to Brooklynati. For June’s Solution Showcase #15 we’re featuring Solution favorites and friends of the party, Donwill & Von Pea aka Tanya Morgan (Brooklyn / Lessondary), singer/musician CRL CRRLL, producer DJ Matt Cassidy and Solution co-founders DJ Low Key & Sounds Supreme. Tanya Morgan will be rocking some brand new joints off their highly anticipated Rubber Souls album with producer 6th Sense and based on everything we’ve hear dso far, Denver is in for a treat.

Things kick off at 9 and we’ve got complimentary Red Bull Editions (their 3 new flavors) for the first 50 people who come out. This one has all the makings of a classic, get your $8 pre-sale tickets at Family Affair downtown, at The Solution or Goodness or online next week. 608 East 13th Ave / $10 at the door / 21+ / 9pm.
Wednesday, 4/24 -> The Solution Showcase #14 w/DJ Rhettmatic (Beat Junkies), Fly4Wird, Spyda T.E.K., DJ Low Key, Sounds Supreme & DJ Dozen at Beauty Bar Denver…The Solution Showcase has a new monthly home, but you can still catch The Solution every Friday night at the Meadowlark!
WEDNESDAY, 4/24 -> With The Solution w/DJ Low Key & Lazy Eyez back to weekly status every Friday night and winning awards for it, we realized that Fridays should stay focused on the straight up party vibe at the Meadowlark and decided to move The Solution Showcase and it’s concert/party/beat showcase/etc mixed vibe over to Beauty Bar Denver (608 E. 13th St) so we could have more flexibility and a bigger stage to play with.
UPDATE: Blu, TiRon & Ayomari are canceling /postponing their tour and we’re disappointed to say that because of that they will not be performing at The Solution Showcase #14. With that said, we’re excited to announce THE LEGENDARY DJ RHETTMATIC of the WORLD FAMOUS BEAT JUNKIES will be taking their place as our out of town special guest instead. Rhettmatic is a legend in the LA scene, having been a fixture of their nightlife circuit, working with artists like Cypress Hill, The Visionaries & Buff1 while winning quite a few DJ battle titles as well. Expect him to smash the turntables like only a legend can.
This month’s featured Denver act is recently formed CO supergroup Fly4Wird (aka Babah Fly, DJ Fast 4Ward & Mike Wird) and our featured producer is 2013 Solution Beat Battle winner Spyda T.E.K., who blew a lot of Denver heads away en route to winning the 2013 title. Solution co-founders DJ Low Key & Sounds Supreme as well as Welcome to the D.O.P.E. Game’s DJ Dozen will be holding down the turntables as well and our friends at Red Bull are hooking up the first 50 people through the door with complimentary new Red Bull Editions. $8 pre-sales at the weekly Solution via DJ Low Key or Lazy Eyez or at any Family Affair / $10 at the door / 21+.
Friday, 2/22 -> The Solution Showcase #13 w/Von Pea (of Tanya Morgan), Diamond Boiz, Paul Junior, DJ Low Key & DJ Lazy Eyez at the Meadowlark…
FRIDAY, 2/22 -> It’s that time again, The Solution Showcase is back for another month with more of the best in national and Colorado-bred talent. Things have been great with the monthly showcase, but we’re about to make them even better. Instead of $8 at the door and $5 pre-sales, once a month we’ll be incorporating the monthly Solution Showcase into the new weekly Solution at the Meadowlark and keeping the price the same whenever possible. That means NO COVER until 11pm and only $5 afterwards most of the time, even with stacked lineups of national and CO talent. We figured the consistency would be good and if you tell a few friends about the lower price and showcases, then everybody wins.
With that said, let’s talk lineup. For this month’s Solution Showcase #13, we’ve got an all-time Solution favorite and good friend of the party, Brooklynati’s own Von Pea (of Tanya Morgan), making his solo Denver debut, complete with fresh new material and classics in tow. Von’s been out to The Solution as much as anyone over the years, but always performing with Donwill (and sometimes Ilyas) as Tanya Morgan. This time he’s gonna be out here performing tracks from Pea’s Gotta Have It, premiering new joints from his upcoming Duly Noted EP with Aeon (set to drop next month, but if you e-mail DulyNoted@DenverSolution.com we’ll send you the exclusive Solution preview) and more. He’ll be joined by Denver favorites Diamond Boiz (aka Dyalekt, Zome & Zé), Fresh Breath Committee’s Paul Junior and The Solution’s own DJ Low Key & Lazy Eyez on the turntables in another top notch bill. 21+/Free until 11/$5 after/2701 Larimer St.
Starting Friday, 2/8 -> The Solution w/DJ Low Key, Lazy Eyez & more is back weekly!!! Every Friday night at the award-winning Meadowlark!!!
EVERY FRIDAY, STARTING 2/8 -> The Solution is back. Every Friday night. Say it with me one time, The Solution is back, every Friday night. Ahhhh, it sounds so nice. Not that we haven’t been doing parties all around town over the last year or two, but it’s nice to have a good home base for the party that people can count on every weekend. Now that you’ve hopefully committed the basics to memory, let’s talk details.
After a dozen Solution Showcases and a fantastic Summer of daytime parties at Goodness (which will be back in May, btw), the Meadowlark seemed like the perfect fit to make our weekly home; most y’all have already been through before and really like it, they have the flexibility to support performances, the drinks aren’t too pricey, the vibe is good and most importantly, they trust and appreciate us as DJs, promoters & cultivators of a music community (the owner constantly tells me how much loves the diverse crowd we bring in, try finding that attitude at most venues near downtown). Plus, their patio will be the cherry on top for warm Summer nights (although after 10PM, the DJs have to be inside).
So check it out, here’s the new plan for Fridays at the Meadowlark, The Solution, The Solution Showcase & Introducing (the happy hour party I recently started, based around new music). Things will kick off with Introducing w/DJ Low Key from 5-9pm, complete with complimentary green chile tamales and lots of brand new music. Then at 9pm, things will switch over to The Solution w/DJ Low Key, Lazy Eyez, (sometimes) Sounds Supreme, special guests and everything hip hop and great in life. Then, once a month, we’ll feature The Solution Showcase on a Friday night to give Denver its monthly fix of the best in up and coming national and local talent.
On 2/8, we’ll be kicking off our six year anniversary aka #TheSolution6 with me, DJ Lazy Eyez, Special guest DJ Izer and a surprise or two on the turntables, plus we’ll be celebrating the birthdays of #COhiphop favs and our friends Xencs L Wing, Joe Blizzy & Bravo One. Should be another one for the books, see y’all there! 21+/Free until 11/$5 after/2701 Larimer St.
Saturday, 1/26 -> The Solution Showcase #12 w/Yonas Michael (aka Y-O, formerly of U-N-I), Team Latchkey, Yorrissey, DJ Low Key & B-Money at the Meadowlark…
SATURDAY, 1/26 -> For our twelfth edition, The Solution Showcase kicks off 2013 by importing one of our good friends from Los Angeles, Yonas Michael aka Y-O (formerly of U-N-I), as our out of town featured act. Y-O’s gonna be joined by super hype Denver up and comers Team Latchkey, BLK HRTS/Pirate Signal producer/mastermind Yorrissey, Solution co-founder DJ Low Key & Solution Boulder alum B-Money for what promises to be another dose of the best in hip hop at the Meadowlark (2701 Larimer St).
Even if you’re not familiar with the name Yonas Michael or The Mixtape Before Blvck Swan Theory, his recent project with mixtape monster Mick Boogie, you should know Y-O his work in critically acclaimed (and former XXL Freshmen feature) group, U-N-I, including being one of the hosts of our mixtape, The Solution Tape #1, a few years back. Featured Denver act Team Latchkey has two producers who’s names should ring a bell, as both DealzMakesBeats & J Gunna aka Black Jordan were featured at the party last year. They’ll be joined by the rest of the crew (Morning After, Big Keim, B Smith & DJ Hobo) in the six man group’s official Solution Showcase debut. Yorrissey, producer for recently signed Denver heavyweights BLK HRTS and award-winning Pirate Signal, will be rocking beats as our featured producer for this month. DJ Low Key and Denver favorite B-Money will be holding down things on the turntables and making sure things are just as much a party as a rap show and that should round out another top notch lineup for your listening, dancing and drink pleasure. 9pm/21+/$5 pre-sales at all 3 Family Affair locations or only $8 at the door.
