As The Solution Showcase #8 gets closer, we wanted to introduce you to the bill.  The month’s out of town headliner is Chicago MC & producer BrandUn DeShay, one of the best young talents in hip hop.  BrandUn first caught our attention with his song “Why You Gotta Zodiac Me Like That?” and his production work for Dom Kennedy (“Locals Only”), Casey Veggies (“Ridin Round Town”) & Odd Future (before parting ways with the group, at one point he was a member).

Since then, BrandUn has released a steady stream of quality mixtape releases (including Your Favorite! MixTape 2: Special Edition & Volume 3! To Get Ready) and continued to produce tracks for some of the top new artists in hip hop, including Danny Brown (“Radio Song”, “Pac Blood” & “Party All The Time” from XXX), Curren$y (“Racing Stripes”), Sir Mikey Rocks (formerly of the Cool Kids), Rockie Fresh (Maybach Music Group), Kendrick Lamar, TiRon, OverDoz, Von Pea & recent Billboard cover feature Mac Miller.  All this led up to the release of his highly anticipated All Day DeShay album last Fall, which spawned the popular singles “World Famous”, “1Up” & “Ur Fresh” and cemented BrandUn DeShay as one of the best all around artists in hip hop today.

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
