Bianca Mikahn

Meet Bianca Mikahn, our featured Denver artist for The Solution Showcase #8 on Saturday, 8/25 at the Meadowlark…

If you’re in the #COHipHop scene you probably already know Bianca Mikahn, our featured Denver artist for The Solution Showcase #8.  She got her start in the group Paradox and on the spoken word scene before making her solo debut with Left Fist Evolution, but you might also know her as a Mercury Sauce writer, Mercury Cafe Slam Master or Check Your Head mentor.  Those are a few of the titles that got me started calling Bianca the first lady of Denver hip hop, but the props she collects on the scene (as well as a few awards) really cement the claim.

You’d be hard pressed to find anyone to argue, take a quick look and listen the music/videos in the post for proof and make sure you catch Bianca Mikahn at The Solution Showcase #8, alongside Chicago’s BrandUn DeShay, Black Jordan, DJ Low Key & Lazy Eyez, inside the Meadowlark (2701 Larimer St).  Starts at 9pm/21+/$5 pre-sales at all three Family Affair locations or $8 at the door.

Saturday, 8/25 at 9PM -> The Solution Showcase #8 w/Chicago’s BrandUn DeShay, Bianca Mikahn, Black Jordan, DJ Low Key & Lazy Eyez at the Meadowlark…

SATURDAY, 8/25 at 9PM -> “It’s been a long time, we shouldn’t have left you…”.  After a scheduling issue in July and breaking from our formula to honor some of Denver’s best DJs in June, The Solution Showcase is back on track with another ridiculously dope lineup.  For The Solution Showcase #8, we’re importing infamous Chicago MC and producer BrandUn DeShay, the first lady of Denver hip hop Bianca Mikahn, criminally underrated producer Black Jordan (from Team Latchkey, fka Jay Gunna), DJ Low Key & Lazy Eyez.

BrandUn DeShay is a classic double threat, having released numerous critically acclaimed mixtapes as an MC/producer while also doing beats for the likes of Dom Kennedy, Curren$y, Danny Brown, Von Pea, Mac Miller, Sir Michael Rocks (of the Cool Kids) & others.  Having come up in the group Paradox, Bianca Mikahn has been rocking mics on the Denver circuit with the Mercury Sauce collective for years, making quite a name for herself in the usually male-driven hip hop scene.  Black Jordan, who’ll be celebrating the release of his Basement Instinct beat tape at the party, blew us away with his music at The Solution Beat Battle earlier this year and we’ve been waiting for the right opportunity to feature his production at the showcase ever since.  You probably already know about DJ Low Key and Lazy Eyez if you’re reading this, but if not, we’ve both been pushing quality hip hop for years in Denver, trying to make the kind of events we’d like to go to happen, while winning an award or two in the process.

Don’t worry if you’re not familiar with someone on the bill, a big part of The Solution Showcase is about discovering dope new music and we’ll be linking up music, videos and more info on all the artists as we get closer to the party. So stay tuned to to learn more about the performers and hopefully we’ll see you on 8/25! 21+ /// $5 Pre-sales now available at all three Family Affair locations & get you 15% off your entire purchase /// $8 at the door /// Doors at 9.
