Flashback: 2014 SX Solution Showcase & Austin Goodness at La Barbecue recap, complete with video, pics & quotes from the featured artists!!!

Exile_DJ_Low_Key_and_Choosey_at_The_2014_SX_Solution_Showcase

Time flies. Last year’s SX704 Solution Showcase at La Barbecue seems like just yesterday and that still seems awesomely surreal (from DJing for the Pharcyce to the crazy dope lineup to the unbelievably great food), so when the opportunity to throw a whole day’s worth of events came up this year, it was no-brainer. And so me and some friends (primarily France, DJ Trackstar & Dayta), set out to program twelve hours worth of Saturday fun at the biggest music festival in the country, bringing a mix of both Goodness & The Solution type flavor to the acclaimed BBQ spot. When everything was said and done on the morning of 3/15, the lineup was stacked with ridiculously talented MCs, DJs, singers and producers from all over the country and looked like this:

Extra stacked lineup, busiest day of SXSW and we were greeted by rain and fog on the morning of the event; not ideal at all. Regardless, we trudged through, set up tents over the turntables and stage and not too long after things got going, with the spot packing out quickly as Austin Goodness started with sounds from some of the best DJs in the country. From there, the weather cleared up, things somehow ran (mostly) according to schedule, despite a short break for a blown mixing board (which somehow got replaced in an under an hour, I credit good musical karma) and when the event wrapped up shortly after midnight, well over 30 top notch acts from NY to LA to Saint Louis to Denver and more had performed for hundreds of people.

CRL CRRLL’s awesome recap of his SXSW & the party

Over the course of the day, I met a ton of ton of new people and the main thing they said was that the event had one of the purest, best vibes they saw all week and that the day carried on the classic SXSW tradition of independent artists and musical discovery (I was even put on to some new favorites at my own event…LOL). To me and everybody involved that’s what it’s all about and we couldn’t be happier with how things turned out, especially when the overwhelming sentiment of SXSW 2014 is that it’s become too commercialized for its own good. With that said, see what the artists involved had to say about the event and check out pics of the day below (as well as even more pics here):

DJ_Sober_at_2014_Austin_Goodness

“The Austin Goodness party had the best vibes all week. Oh, and the best BBQ!” – DJ Sober (Dallas / Black Milk’s DJ)

“Epic…Inspiring…Great feeling to be around so many great DJs Goodness, grooving, and [I] loved the crowd’s reception of us” – DJ Dozen (Denver)

“Goodness, the best way I could spend digesting the best food in Austin.” DJ Expo (Los Angeles)

DJ_Clockwork_and_Von_Pea_at_The_SX_Solution_Showcase

“Amazing group of musicians playing records in the rain is the best way to start off SXSW at the Austin Goodness…Don’t forget the coleslaw!” – DJ Clockwork (Los Angeles / Mac Miller’s DJ)

“Good eats, good beats and vibes” – Dayta (Houston)

DJ_Theory_at_Austin_Goodness

Deejay Theory (San Francisco)

“It was really nice to walk up to a fully relaxed situation with all of the craziness I had been experiencing before that day at SXSW. Turning left instead of turning up is just what I needed after playing intense party set one after another. Vibe at The [Austin] Goodness was on point and very welcoming. 5 stars.” – DJ A-Minor (Charlotte, NC)

“The show was dope. Good food and good performances. I got to see folks I never heard of killing it.” – YC The Cynic (New York)

“The SXSW Solution Showcase with DJ Low Key is good people, good music and good food = a great time” – Exile (Los Angeles)

Twitter_Praise_of_Dirty_Science_at_The_2014_SX_Solution_Showcase

“I had a ball rocking at The SX Solution Showcase with my Dirty Science brethren. The food and the talent on the bill were top notch!! I’m already looking forward to next year’s bill! – Johaz of Dag Savage (Los Angeles)

Donwill_and_DJ_Low_Key_at_The_2014_SX_Solution_Showcase

“Between Goodness & The SX Solution, there was only one place you needed to be on Saturday at SXSW, La Barbecue. Great vibes, fantastic music and amazing food.” – Donwill of Tanya Morgan (New York)

“Goodness & The SX Solution Showcase were like a marathon of hot shit. The original purpose of SXSW, at its best, in one location.” – Von Pea of Tanya Morgan (New York)

Weekend_Money_at_The_SX_Solution_Showcase

“”SXSW is always dope cuz it’s like Mardi Gras in Austin a whole week. Mobbin’ all over the city running into other artists & fans from all over the country, rocking for new fans. The SX Solution Showcase was especially dope cuz everybody who performed not only killed it, but showed love to everybody else who rocked.” – Ness of Weekend Money (New York)

Tef_Poe_and_Black_Spade_at_The_2014_Solution_Showcase

“I was honored to be there. My city was turned. God Bless you [DJ Low Key] for giving me a shot!! We just wanted to show and prove.” – Tef Poe (St. Louis)

Nick_Whiteout_Menn_at_The_2014_SX_Solution_Showcase

“The event was the highlight of the week as far as shows are concerned, we had the opportunity to perform at four shows during SXSW and the La Barbecue show was the best one; most responsive crowd, best sound system, best food lol I thoroughly enjoyed myself, as well as all of the other acts I witnessed while I was out there. Also, much appreciation to DJ Low Key for showing STL love, it was great to see so many of my homies whom I feel are the best representatives of what dope music from STL sounds like, all on one bill, all down in SXSW, it was just a good feeling, and I appreciate that.” – Nick Menn (St. Louis)

Theophilus_Martins_at_The_2014_SX_Solution_Showcase

“The SXSW Solution Showcase was my most important experience this year. It was a grand opportunity to perform new music and connect with fans and friends alike. Thanks for having me Low Key.” – Theophilus Martins (Los Angeles)

Yonas_Michael_at_the_2014_SX_Solution_Showcase

“Good music, good people, good food & beer. Felt like I was rocking in my family’s backyard” – Yonas Michael (Los Angeles)

Slangston_Hughes_at_2014_The_SX_Solution_Showcase

“The SX Solution Showcase was an unbelievable experience! The opportunity to perform in front of hundreds of new faces froma cross the U.S. for the time, in addition to Statik Selektah, Dee Woods (of Danity Kane fame) and Tanya Morgan was beyond awesome and very motivational.” – Slangston Hughes (New Orleans)

Spec_Boogie_at_the_2014_SX_Solution_Showcase

“I got put on to a lot of acts I’d never heard of and a lot of people got put on to me. I heard a lot of people complaining about how SWSX is so corporate now, but the big, overhyped shows were easy to ignore. I spent most of my time at smaller showcases like The Solution jawn. The food at La Barbecue was so good I couldn’t eat any meat for a week after I left Austin and now almost a month later I’ve just begun eating beef again. I knew I wouldn’t find anything comparable in NY.” – Spec Boogie (New York)

CRL_CRRLL_at_The_2014_SX_Solution_Showcase

“Hyped up parties and sold out shows and The SX Solution Showcase was one of the biggest highlights of my SXSW. Not only was there good food at SX Solution Showcase, but it got so hype later that night the almost broke some tables. Low Key put on one of the most unique events I visited in Austin and I got to see some pretty amazing ish! Here’s to The SX Solution Showcase!” – CRL CRRLL (Denver)

The_Bodega_Brovaz_at_The_2014_SX_Solution_Showcase

“The SX Solution Showcase was great opportunity for us to network, everybody was there!” – Travii of Bodega Brovas (Dallas)

Catch_Lungs_at_The_2014_SX_Solution_Showcase

“One of my favorite memories from this year’s SXSW was rocking at The Solution Showcase at La Barbecue. Got to meet a lot of great people and the food was some of the best BBQ I’ve ever had. Huge shout out DJ Low Key for making it happen.” – Catch Lungs (Denver)

Turner_Jackson_and_Rob_Forreal_at_The_2014_SX_Solution_Showcase

“The [SX] Solution Showcase at La Barbecue was amazing. I had the opportunity to party with people that I’ve never met. I knew that they would dig me because they dig Low Key. The pulled pork sand which was off the chain too! ” – Turner Jackson (Denver)

Family_Affair_at_The_2014_SX_Solution_Showcase

“Family Affair’s experience with DJ Low Key at SXSW was everything that you could imagine as a upcoming artist. We were treated with the utmost respect even when our personal DJ was under the weather for show time. DJ Low Key without any hesitation assisted F.A with our show. The beer was unlimited it seemed like and the food was phenomenal! What I noticed different is that after every performance there was somebody ready to give them a hot plate of bbq as they exited the stage. We had our crew with us and we enjoyed ourselves so much we just stayed at the event almost til closing. As a band member we always pride ourselves on how the venues cater to our product and I can say this was one of the most humbling events with so much talent on one roster. Family Affair is looking forward to next years event without a doubt.” – Repp of Family Affair (St. Louis)

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!!!

Curated by The Solution’s own DJ Low Key. Hosted by The Solution own DJ Lazy Eyez. Featuring two of the best acts in the state, FL & The Reminders, and the legendary Bun B!!! Details on the show from djlowkey.com:

.:Make sure you RSVP for $5 admission at RedBullSoundSelect.com:.

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!!!

Bun_B_RB_Pic

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.

804fc5736197037676e9a580a18840a4

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.

The-Reminders

.:RSVP for $5 admission HERE:.

P.S. Stay tuned for more great monthly Red Bull Sound Select shows and new music in Denver, curated by myself, Holy Underground, Souls In Action & The UMS, all year long!!!

The Solution named “Best Club Night Return” in Westword 2013 Best Of Denver…



At this point, the Solution is well on its way to becoming a Denver institution. But it isn't just our town's longest-running and most revered hip-hop night — it's also a testament to quality and resilience. Despite having moved virtually all over town since it was founded half a dozen years ago by DJs Low Key and Sounds Supreme, the Solution continues to draw a faithful crowd wherever — and however — it goes. Even after the Solution took a hiatus from weekly parties, the Solution crew continued to offer showcases featuring a parade of the best local MCs and producers, along with lauded acts from elsewhere. And last month, when the Solution returned to a weekly format at its new home at the Meadowlark, all was right in the cosmos again. - Westword
