Sunday Night Sound Session w/DJ Hyphen & J Moore premiers CRL CRRLL “Cheers” on 100K watt FM radio!!! We’re honored to have the record featured on SNSS between D’Angelo & Lion Babe!

HUGE shouts to the homies J Moore & DJ Hyphen and Sunday Night Sound Session for premiering our new single with CRL CRRLL “Cheers” on KUBE FM 93 in Seattle earlier this month to rave reviews!!!

In case you’re not familiar, SNSS is a long-running, highly regarded mixshow that’s been broadcasting for close to a decade now and directly helped shaped a Seattle scene healthy enough to spawn the likes of independent hip hop stars like Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Blue Scholars, Shabazz Palaces & such, as well as having a strong national and online impact. With that said, we’re very excited and super honored to have them premier “Cheers” on FM radio on such a heralded institution (between D’Angelo & Lion Babe at that!)!

“He is out of Denver, very dope vocalist, be on the lookout for him” (c) DJ Hyphen on CRL CRRLL. Check out the show above, catch the “Cheers” video below & stay tuned for The Solution Tape #2 next month!!!

The CRL CRRLL “Cheers” Video! Directed, filmed & edited by Black Sock Productions!!! It’s the first single from The Solution Tape #2 & first release on The Solution Records!!!!!!!!!

2014’s been an UNBELIEVABLE year for The Solution and we’re thrilled to be closing it out in grand fashion, teaming up with longtime friend of the party and one of our favorite artists in Denver, CRL CRRLL, to release “Cheers” aka the first official single from The Solution Tape #2 (finally!!!) and first release on The Solution Records (!!!!!!!). CRL’s been coming to the party for almost all of the 7+ years we’ve been rocking and makes great music with a unique sound, so when it came time to finally get everything together for our upcoming mixtape, The Solution Tape #2, it only made sense to reach out to him for an exclusive song to feature on the project.

Over the Summer, DJ Low Key met up with CRL CRRLL for a fateful studio visit that led to “Cheers” getting picked out of a batch of incredible music for the mixtape and next thing you know everyone in Denver was loving this song that only DJ Low Key & DJ Lazy Eyez were spinning, whether they heard it at The Solution on a Friday night, saw CRL perform it live, caught it when we DJed a brunch gig or whatever. At that point, we began to realize that “Cheers” was something extra special and decided it deserved as much of a push as we could give it. That turned into us teaming up with Black Sock Productions and Jonathan Martin to shoot a video at Goodness w/DJ Low Key & friends and The Solution, which turned into us deciding that “Cheers” was so good that it needed to get full-on single push, a physical pressing (coming in early 2015!) and so on. It’s funny how something can organically grow so fast, but it’s great to witness and be a part of. And with that said, for your listening pleasure, we’re super proud to present to you, a new celebratory anthem, right on time for New Year’s Eve and all your best moments of 2015; CRL CRRLL “Cheers”, the first single from The Solution Tape #2 (coming 2/2015) & first release on The Solution Records!!!!!!!

YouTube Preview Image

“Cheers” video directed, shot & edited by Jonathan Martin for Black Sock Productions. “Cheers” produced, written & engineered by CRL CRRLL. Video filmed on location at The Meadowlark during both The Solution w/DJ Low Key & Lazy Eyez and Goodness w/DJ Low Key & friends. Still photos by Armando Geneyro aka Knower Of The Ledge. Outro song: CRL CRRLL featuring Von Pea (of Tanya Morgan) “Cruise”. Stay tuned for The Solution Tape #2 in February 2015 and CRL CRRLL’s Ghostwaves double-EP in early 2015 and don’t miss The Solution w/DJ Low Key & Lazy Eyez, every Friday night at The Meadowlark in Denver, CO!!!

P.S. Don’t forget to close out the year at The Solution’s New Year Eve 2014 Party at Beauty Bar Denver, featuring a special appearance by the legendary DJ Chris Karns (World DMC Winner, US Thre3 Style Finalist & Master Of The Mix Runner Up), The Solution’s own DJ Low Key & Lazy Eyez, a special “Cheers” live performance by CRL CRRLL to break in the new year & more!!!

P.P.S. In case you missed The Solution Tape #1 (chock full of exclusives and live audio from the likes of Von Pea & Donwill of Tanya Morgan, Exile & DJ Day, Kooley High, Moe Green, Mike Baker & 1 O.A.K. of The Honor Roll & a whole lot more!!!), check it out RIGHT HERE! Enjoy!!!

My favorite review of the Solution Tape #1, courtesy of TreesForBreakfast.com…

From taste-maker blog TreesForBreakfast.com:

Do you guys know my homie DJ Low Key?  He just happens to be one of the top DJs in the lovely city of Denver, Colorado and one of the central figures in keeping a budding hip-hop scene alive in his area.  You can Google him to see how many different mixtapes, events and projects he’s been involved with.  The guy hustles his ass off.   However, his pride and joy is a wildly popular party called The Solution — an event that blends a perfect mix of quality hip-hop and soul for a super appreciative crowd.  Not all of us live in Denver though.

Fear not…Low Key and his homie Sounds Supreme have thrown together this mixtape (a REAL mixtape…with actual blending) that celebrates said party and captures the vibe in a whopping 1 hour and 22 minutes.  The best part of this is that it is CHOCK FULL of exclusive joints that you will only find on this mixtape. You can see how much love these guys get from all over the map.

Friday, 2/26 -> DJ Low Key & Sounds Supreme – The Solution Tape #1 Release Party + The Solution’s last night at the Funky Buddha…

FRIDAY, 2/26 ->  We’re finally dropping the Solution Tape #1, hosted by our good friends U-N-I & Ro Blvd, just in time to celebrate our final night at the Funky Buddha.  We’ve held down the Funky Buddha’s rooftop for the last 2+ years and while our time there has been awesome, it’s time for us to move on to a bigger and better spot, where we can take the Solution to the next level.  With that said, we’re looking forward to our new home, a few blocks away at Bar Standard (1037 Broadway). Bar Standard has a stage, great sound system, impressive lighting, a recently renovated interior, two AMAZING rooftop decks for summer and all sorts of other useful features that we plan to make the most of (starting with our 4th annual J Dilla tribute on 3/5).

But anyways, back to the party on 2/26.  You know the music’s gonna be on point, we’ll be giving copies of DJ Low Key & Sounds Supreme – The Solution Tape #1 (hosted by U-N-I & Ro Blvd) to the first 100 people, we’ve got clothing giveaways from Akomplice and two lucky Solution fans are gonna win a dope new Denver Diggers fitted, courtesy of Frank151 (find out how to win in the post below).  Don’t miss your chance to witness the end of this chapter of the Solution!!!  No cover / 21+ / Music at 9.

Kooley High, Median & Halo “What’s The Deal” from DJ Low Key & Sounds Supreme – The Solution Tape #1…

Here’s another exclusive track from DJ Low Key & Sounds Supreme – The Solution Tape #1, this one courtesy of 9th Wonder proteges Kooley High, Solution guest/DJ Low Key collaborator Median* and recently retired NC rapper Halo. “What’s The Deal” was originally recorded 2 years ago for a now shelved DJ Low Key mixtape collaboration with Spitkicker (the tape was for their web site and they have no site since getting hacked in late 2008), but it only made sense to feature it on the Solution Tape #1 since the song is full on Colorado references including shouts to the Solution, Denver and our good but since closed friends the 400 and Bar Luxe.  Since then, Kooley High has been racking up props from all angles (including an upcoming tour with Solution favorites Tanya Morgan, check the dates at KooleyHigh.com) and Median is in the midst of recording a ridiculous follow up to his acclaimed debut Relief, definitely catch up on them if you’re not familiar.  The first Solution mixtape is set to drop on 2/26 as we celebrate our last night at the Funky Buddha before moving to our new home at Bar Standard (1037 Broadway) and there will be physical copies, don’t miss it.

Von Pea “Toss It Over” (produced by Suhburb) from DJ Low Key & Sounds Supreme – The Solution Tape #1…

Here’s an exclusive track that Von Pea recorded for DJ Low Key & Sounds Supreme – The Solution Tape #1, coming in early February.  Lessondary producer extraordinaire Suhburb laced a monster of a beat and Von murdered it on some fun, clubby ish (“I’m so lyrical, blah blah blah”).  If you don’t already know by now, Von Pea is a member/producer of the acclaimed rap group Tanya Morgan.  Check out his site/blog over at VonPea.com to get up to speed and make sure to check him next time he’s at the Solution, it should be soon (dude’s already been by four times…LOL).  If you’ve got a blog or web site, feel free to post up the direct link to the song and mention the upcoming mixtape, if not, please tell a friend or two about it on facebook or twitter or however.  Thanks for listening.
