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!!!

DJ Lazy Eyez talks about The Solution, not being “a fancy jukebox” & more with Cypher Sessions…

“At some point you have to question whether or not you’re really DJing and contributing something, or if you’re just a fancy jukebox.” – DJ Lazy Eyez explains what The Solution w/DJ Low Key & Lazy Eyez is all about in a recent interview with Cypher Sessions. Check out the full question & interview below->

Cypher Sessions: What has your time at The Solution been like since you joined, and what have you learned from that weekly showcase?

DJ Lazy Eyez: “The Solution has always been a very special thing to me. The Solution was originally founded by DJ Low Key and DJ Sounds Supreme. Even at the beginning I would just go as a fan and hang out. Partying at the Solution those first couple of years was a very special time in my life when I had just graduated college and was still living a young carefree life in my 20s. I joined the Solution sometime around 2009. DJ Low Key has always been someone I collaborated with even in college when we used to throw 18 and up club nights in Boulder (I was the co-promoter and Low Key was the DJ). So the fit was very natural. I think we have mutual respect in terms of DJing, work ethic, and quality Hip-Hop; plus, we’re homies. The Solution has helped me grow more as a party rocking DJ, but also as a good Hip-Hop DJ.

It’s very easy to get wrapped up in the club life and being a DJ, and you can easily fall into a very formulaic boring top 40 DJ. In all reality, anyone with some beat matching skills and a laptop can DJ whatever douche club / bar in downtown Denver or college town. I’ve been there, DJ Low Key has been there. At some point you have to question whether or not you’re really DJing and contributing something, or if you’re just a fancy jukebox. The Solution allows us to have our own crowd who appreciates quality music (not just Hip-Hop). I love the fact that we are able to get away with so many genres and off the radar tracks. I think a lot of DJs if they actually saw what we get to do for such a great crowd, would be jealous. We don’t have to play anything we don’t want.

On top of that, things like the Solution and Goodness have been able to create a sense of community and friendships that I especially appreciate. You can come to one of our events and meet a who’s who of Colorado Hip-Hop. It really is a golden age for us, and I keep that in mind every week we DJ.”

The Solution…Every Friday night at The Meadowlark…Here’s what they say about us…

“Every Friday night at the Meadowlark, The Solution lives up to its tagline, “The best in hip-hop and a whole lot more.” DJ Low Key and Lazy Eyez have crafted an event that lives comfortably inside the realm of quality hip-hop, and still manages to always incorporate artists and records that are mere relatives of the genre. The flawless blend of music packs the dance floor with the eclectic mix of attendees, the DJs are consistently the cream of the damn crop, and every once in a while one of your favorite national artists will slide through with the intimate performance of a lifetime. If you’re sleeping on this one, it’s time to wake the hell up.” – HipHopRollCall.com

The best hip hop night in Denver” – DearDenver.net

“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 DJ Low Key and DJ 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

DJ Low Key & Lazy Eyez interviews in Hip Hop Roll Call…It’s their DJ issue, check out the whole thing!!!

.:HipHopRollCall talk to DJ Low Key (click here for interview):.

No DJ does more for the Denver hip-hop community than DJ Low Key. His projects keep good music at our doorstep through every season, constantly ensuring that we don’t suffer a dry spell. He incorporates art, food, turntablism, local emcees and national legends into all his events, [with] The Solution and Goodness being the main bragging rights of the city.  Read the interview at HipHopRollCall.com…

.:HipHopRollCall.com talks to DJ Lazy Eyez (click here for interview):.

DJ Lazy Eyez is to the Colorado community what a DJ is to hip-hop, the foundation. From radio personality, to promoter, to music business guru, Lazy can – and does – do it all.  From his Basementalism days to present day Lazy has held down, supported and represented for hip-hop in every way possible and he is now the resident DJ, along with DJ Low Key at The Solution. Most recently he seamlessly curated and hosted the Denver DMC Regional battle at Casselman’s, reminding everyone how talented and confident he really is. Read the interview at HipHopRollCall.com…
