Saturday, 8/25 at 9PM -> The Solution Showcase #8 w/Chicago’s BrandUn DeShay, Bianca Mikahn, Black Jordan, DJ Low Key & Lazy Eyez at the Meadowlark…
SATURDAY, 8/25 at 9PM -> “It’s been a long time, we shouldn’t have left you…”. After a scheduling issue in July and breaking from our formula to honor some of Denver’s best DJs in June, The Solution Showcase is back on track with another ridiculously dope lineup. For The Solution Showcase #8, we’re importing infamous Chicago MC and producer BrandUn DeShay, the first lady of Denver hip hop Bianca Mikahn, criminally underrated producer Black Jordan (from Team Latchkey, fka Jay Gunna), myself and #COhiphop saint, Lazy Eyez (I’m sure he’s gonna hate that title, but it fits…LOL).
BrandUn DeShay is a classic double threat, having released numerous critically acclaimed mixtapes as an MC/producer while also doing beats for the likes of Dom Kennedy, Curren$y, Danny Brown, Von Pea, Mac Miller, Sir Michael Rocks (of the Cool Kids) & others. Having come up in the group Paradox, Bianca Mikahn has been rocking mics on the Denver circuit with the Mercury Sauce collective for years, making quite a name for herself in the usually male driven hip hop scene. Black Jordan , who’ll be celebrating the release of his Basement Instinct beat tape at the party, blew us away with his music at The Solution Beat Battle earlier this year and we’ve been waiting for the right opportunity to feature his production at the showcase ever since. You probably already know about me and Lazy Eyez if you’re reading this, but if not, we’ve both been pushing quality hip hop for years in Denver, trying to make the kind of events we’d like to go to happen, while winning an award or two in the process.
Don’t worry if you’re not familiar with someone on the bill, a big part of The Solution Showcase is about discovering dope new music and we’ll be linking up music, videos and more info on all the artists as we get closer to the party. So stay tuned to DenverSolution.com to learn more about the performers and hopefully we’ll see you on 8/25! 21+ /// $5 Pre-sales now available at all three Family Affair locations & get you 15% off your entire purchase /// $8 at the door /// Doors at 9.
UPDATE: Meet BrandUn DeShay, our featured out of town artist for The Solution Showcase #8 on Saturday, 8/25 at The Meadowlark. BrandUn is an MC/producer from Chicago who’s worked with the likes of Danny Brown, Curren$y, Dom Kennedy, Casey Veggies, Mac Miller, Von Pea, Sir Mikey Rocks & more.
Saturday, 8/25 from 6-8pm -> BrandUn DeShay meet & greet + in-store w/DJ Low Key & DJ Dozen at Family Affair downtown…
SATURDAY, 8/25 from 6-8PM -> Before we head over to The Solution Showcase #8, me, DJ Dozen and Chicago MC/producer BrandUn DeShay will be heading over to Family Affair downtown for an all ages in-store appearance and meet & greet. BrandUn wanted to make sure he got to somehow perform a few songs for his under 21 fans, so we linked up with our good friends over at Family Affair to make it happen. I’ll be spinning, BrandUn will rock a few songs and you’re more than welcome to bring your little brother/sister and put them on to some quality hip hop. Last but not least, even if you’re not familiar with BrandUn, you might be familiar with his work on projects by Danny Brown, Von Pea, Curren$y, Dom Kennedy, Mac Miller, Sir Mikey Rocks & others, so hit his wikipedia page to get up on his impressive discography. All Ages/No Cover/2049 Larimer St. Then after the meet & greet, we’re off to the Meadowlark for the main event, The Solution Showcase #8 w/BrandUn DeShay, the first lady of Denver hip hop Bianca Mikahn, criminally underrated producer Black Jordan (from Team Latchkey, fka Jay Gunna), myself and #COhiphop saint, Lazy Eyez.
Also, Family Affair is releasing the highly anticipated Nike Air Max Hyperposite – “Crimson” at 6pm too. Here’s what Family Affair has to say about the infamous new shoe from Nike:
What do you get when you mix the iconic Foamposite with the newly innovative Hyperfuse? You create the Frankenstein-like Nike Air Max Hyperposite. Releasing this weekend in the “Bright Crimson” makeup, the hybrid sneaker is set to go on sale for $225.

Shouts to the Meadowlark, home of the The Solution Showcase & Goodness…They were featured in 5280 Magazine’s “best bars in Denver” issue…
A few months back, 5280 Magazine published the list of the best bars in Denver and included The Meadowlark in their top spots for music. That wasn’t enough though, they published a picture of DJ Dozen from The Solution Showcase #1 along with the article to make it that much sweeter. I agree with them, the Meadowlark has been one of the best venues I’ve worked with! Catch The Solution Showcase once a month and Goodness
on the 1st & 3rd Saturdays every Sunday afternoon, all Summer long at this fine, award-winning establishment. See you there!
