The Solution w/DJ Low Key & Lazy Eyez…Every Friday night at the award-winning 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

The Solution is on Instagram & we’re adding an official photographer to the team! Introducing Armando aka Knower Of The Ledge!!!

If you’ve been following the party for a decent amount of time, you know that we rarely add anyone to the team.  Over the years, the party’s roster has included resident DJs Low Key, Lazy Eyez & Sounds Supreme, official/infamous bartender Jessica and the young homies DJ Dozen & B-Money during The Solution Boulder’s short run (also, huge shouts to honorary members like the cats at Family Affair, Akomplice & Denver Frank).

On that note, we recently made a HUGE addition to the team that we’re excited to announce and his name is @KnowerOfTheLedge aka Armando aka the first official Solution photographer!  He’ll be documenting all of our fun times at the party, and he’s already off to a great start. Take a quick minute to head to his Instagram page to get familiar with his work and see why he’s one of our favorite photographers in Denver, then head over to our Instagram page at @DenverSolution to see what we’ve been up (make sure to follow both, obviously)!  Also, make sure you check out even more great party pics from Armando in the galleries on our Facebook page!!!

Friday, 11/8 at 7pm -> The Art Of Records III: Enter The Marauders at The Solution w/DJ Low Key & Lazy Eyez! 20 years to the week since Midnight Marauders & Enter The Wu-Tang dropped, we celebrate two of hip hop’s best albums & their legendary artwork at the Meadowlark!!!

FRIDAY, 11/8 at 7pm -> The Art Of Records is like Christmas to us.  We invite a dozen or so of our favorite Denver artists to take classic hip hop album & 12″ single record covers and re-imagine them in their own style and when we finally get to see all their work, it’s like walking down the stairs on Christmas morning to see all sorts of presents under the tree.  The first two shows, co-curated by Dunn the Signtologist & DJ Low Key, blew us away with artists flipping everything from Dilla to Public Enemy to Quasimoto albums into a variety of masterpieces (check the links below for thorough recaps).

For our third Art Of Records, we’re celebrating a landmark occasion; the 20th anniversary of two of hip hop’s all-time best albums, A Tribe Called Quest’s Midnight Marauders & Wu-Tang Clan’s Enter The Wu-Tang (36 Chambers), which both, through the magic of the 90s Golden Era in NY, were released on the same Tuesday, 11/9/1993.  We’re not just having the artists flip the album covers alone though, both albums features impressive artwork on the 12″ singles for the likes of “Electric Relaxation”, “Protect Ya Neck” & such that are ripe inspiration for the show at the Meadowlark.

The Art Of Records III: Enter The Marauders Artist Lineup:

Filthe

Tristan Minton

Michael Coriano

Karma Leigh

Dunn The Signtologist

Delton Demarest

Joseph Martinez

Xencs L. Wing

Thomas Evans

Jaime Molina

Aisha Renee

TiredPirate

We’re starting things early at 7pm to showcase the art in full light, then at 10pm, we’re going into afterparty mode at The Solution w/DJ Low Key & Lazy Eyez to close out the night.  We’ll also have Solution photographer extraordinaire Knower Of The Ledge in the house, so make sure to pose for him and keep an eye out for pictures on the new Solution Instagram page & on our Facebook page.  Last but not least, it’s also our homegirl Adrian’s birthday party, so if you see the brunette in this pic rocking to a Prince or Vanity 6 song like she’s straight from the video later in the evening, wish her a happy birthday & buy her a drink!  21+/No cover until 11/Only $5 after/2701 Larimer St.

More about The Art Of Records: Over the last few decades album art has gone from a 12” canvases to a 2” iPod screens, and that’s usually the best-case scenario for the often incredible art that accompanies music releases.  Landmark albums like Eric B & Rakim’s Paid In Full, Nas’s Illmatic and De La Soul is Dead have instantly recognizable covers that are embedded in music and art lovers’ psyches forever, but the 12” as a canvas has become a rarity in the public eye.  Everyone from music and art lovers to average people on the street still connect to both the album art and 12” format, yet we rarely take the time to honor the truly great ones.  The Art Of Records is an exhibit that aims to do just that; focusing on the legacy of exceptional art accompanying exceptional music and the idea of introducing both to a new generation.

The Art Of Records combines art, music and tradition to celebrate and honor the rich history and mystique of record cover art, 12″ vinyl and the artists that create it (both musically and graphically). Curated by DJ Low Key & Dunn the Signtologist, the exhibit features a series of classic 12″ album and single covers re-imagined and recreated by top artists in Denver.  The 12” covers will also be on display and the concept comes full circle with DJ Low Key playing an all vinyl set of the featured records to get the night started.

Congratulations to The Solution’s own DJ Lazy Eyez, who was voted the 2013 Westword Music Showcase “best hip hop DJ in Denver” and won this awesome award last night.  It’s not Lazy’s first time winning the award (he won in 2006), but it’s great to see that in the seven years since is first award, he’s still constantly impacting people in Denver & beyond as a DJ.  This latest award puts us at four “best hip hop DJ in Denver” awards between your two Solution residents (2 for Lazy & 2 for DJ Low Key), more than you’ll at any other party in town, any night of the week.  That said, come celebrate the win with us in proper fashion at this Friday’s Solution and every week at the Meadowlark, plus make sure you catch Lazy DJing for The Reminders all around the country!!!
