Solution news coming soon…In the meantime, here’s what DJ Low Key & Lazy have been up to…

It’s been a minute since the last few Solution events (our annual Dilla tribute & our first CO tour), so we wanted to check in to let you know that me (DJ Low Key) & Lazy Eyez have been far from lazy with the party between venues.  Below is some info on recent and upcoming events that me & Lazy have been involved with, besides working on a proper long term home for the Solution. And oh yeah, now’s probably not a bad time to remind you to check out the DJ Low Key & Lazy Eyez mixtape sections above either, please don’t be sleeping on those.  Last but not least, be on the lookout for some Ahead of the Class tour footage featuring Tanya Morgan to pop up soon, as well as info on our 5th Annual Chicken & Waffles/West Coast Party:

I’ve had a ridiculously busy last month or so, especially with the Solution being between venues.  It went Ahead of the Class Tour, Dilla tribute, RBMA events with the Foreign Exchange, a week in Austin for SXSW, the launch of Connected at Hai Bar, Thre3 Style Boulder & more Red Bull Music Academy work (plus, Thre3 Style Houston next week, it never stops!!!).  Here’s some more info on all that:

EVERY SUNDAY -> I’m excited to announce that you can catch Connected w/DJ Low Key every Sunday night from 8:30-11:30 at the Hai Bar (downstairs at Sushi Hai, 32nd & Lowell in the Highlands).   The feedback so far has been overwhelmingly positive all across the board; a bunch of regulars from my previous Sunday night unanimously said the venue was an upgrade, as was the sound quality, food & happy hour menu size.  Speaking of the happy hour, that was $2 nigiri, $4 rolls & $5 appetizers + $3 small sake, $5 large sake, $3 beers, $6 wines & more the whole time I’m DJing.  And in case you can’t tell from the picture above, I’ll be spinning the best in soul, R&B and other feel good music.  There’s no better way to wrap up your weekend, trust.  Last but not least, I’m working on a nice variety of special events for the night, so stay tuned to this site and twitter.com/djlowkey for more info on that too.  No cover /// 21+ /// SushiHai.com for more on the food/drinks/venue.

Speaking of Connected, that’s Foreign Exchange’s first albums title, and last month I opened for the Grammy-nominated band and helped organize their Denver debut at Summit Music Hall.  The audio from the show is now available on RBMARadio.com and I HIGHLY recommend you check the recording of their performance, it was an instant classic in my humble opinion and one of their best shows in the group’s own words:

.:The Foreign Exchange – On The Floor! – Live at Summit Music Hall, Denver – Pt 1:.

.:The Foreign Exchange – On The Floor! – Live at Summit Music Hall, Denver – Pt 2:.

SXSW was INSANE, I went down to Austin last month to DJ for Tanya Morgan, Che Grand & TiRon; as well as play house DJ for the Vibe.com/Cashmere Agency house. As usual the whole week was nuts, check out my extra thick SXSW recap at djlowkey.com.

I also opened for, judged at and helped organize for the Red Bull Thre3 Style in Boulder, while Lazy Eyez was hosted the event.  The bill featured a distinguished list of DJs from Colorado competing to see who could put together the best 15 minute party rockin set, including last year’s Thre3 Style Denver winner DJ Vajra (fka DJ Magmanimous), Solution family/co-founder Sounds Supreme, Amen, Petey, Bedz, Shake One, Ty Tek & Wushu (the first 5 names on that list have DJed at the Solution before, I hope you’re familiar).  Vajra ended up taking the title once again, moving on to the Thre3 Style Regionals in Dallas.  Boulder’s own DJ Petey took second with DJ Amen rounding out the top three.  With that said, every DJ had a great set and being one of the judges for the battle was tough.  DJ Craze closed out the night with robot like precision and almost 900 people went home ranting about how dope Colorado’s DJs are.

Lazy’s been super busy organizing the Denver DMCs, the legendary turntablist battle.  It’s basically a full time job in itself as he’s coordinating the main event, the DJ battle (set to feature such CO-based international heavyweights as DJ Vajra, Cysko Rokwel & the 4 other 2010 US DMC finalists from CO), as well a b-boy battle, MC battle (which I’ll be DJing, that’s about the extent of where I fit into the DMCs…LOL) and a whole lot more.  Check out Lazy’s post below for more info on the event.

From DJLazyEyez.com:  This year’s Colorado DMC DJ Battle is going to be the best one yet. DJ ROB SWIFT will be here showcasing and judging at the DMC!! In addition, there will also be an MC Battle, 2 on 2 BBoy Battle, performances from Manerok & Deejay Tense, Boombox Saints, and more.

For more info keep checking back on this site. Stay Tuned!! Saturday April 30th at Casselmans.

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
