#TheSolution6…Six events to celebrate six years of The Solution…

February 2013 makes it six years since we launched The Solution on a faithful day in the beginning of February 2007.  First and foremost, me and Sounds Supreme set out to simply create the kind of party we’d like to go.  Over the years maintaining that vision hasn’t always been easy, but it’s been an incredible trip and we’ve gotta shout out everyone in Colorado and beyond who’s come out to the party over the years.  From our first days at the Shelter/Milk Bar to The Funky Buddha to the last year of The Solution Showcase at the Meadowlark before we recently settled into the Meadowlark as a weekly home, the party’s always been defined by great music and great people and we look forward to keeping the tradition alive.  With that said, a lot has changed since we started the party and we want to make sure everyone knows about what we’re up to these days.

As you might have noticed, the party has grown beyond just a club night.  Over to the last few years, we’ve expanded in a lot of different directions, dropping The Solution Tape #1 (follow up coming later this year) to going on statewide tours to collaborating with like-minded parties in other cities to running the former Solution Boulder at ‘Round Midnight to launching The Solution Showcase, The Solution Beat Battle, The Art Of Records & more fun stuff.  So from 2013 and beyond, catch us coming up with new ways to enjoy the music we all love while keeping with the core ideals that make the party so much fun intact.  All this marches on (with a fly soundtrack, of course) with #TheSolution6 (blockbuster sequel to last year’s #TheSolution5, duh!).

Maybe you’ve seen #TheSolution6 floating around on our flyers and posts this month and if you weren’t around last February for #TheSolution5 last year it probably doesn’t make much sense. So what makes up #TheSolution6?

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
