Meet Neon Brown, our featured CO producer for The Solution Showcase #11 on 12/22 at the Meadowlark…

Denver, meet Neon Brown, one eclectic dude and quite the producer/DJ.  I first learned about Neon when he threw a J Dilla tribute at the Beauty Bar last February, but it turns out he’d actually collaborated with both previous Solution Showcase feature Fast Forward and Solution co-founder Sounds Supreme years before we even started The Solution.  Since then he’s spent time in New York, where he linked up with Roots affiliate and Money Making Jam Boy Truck North, made his way back to Denver and since has moved out to the Bay Area.  In the mean time he managed to drop three projects in 2012 alone; Teenagers, It’s Spring Again & Child’s Play.  Check out all three projects on both his bandcamp & soundcloud pages and stay tuned “Riot Act”, the upcoming Neon Brown-produced single from Truck North featuring Homeboy Sandman, and a rumored collab with Donwill (of Tanya Morgan fame). – DJ Low Key

Here’s more on the musical madness that is Neon Brown from his bio:

“Neon Brown is a Musician/ Audio Engineer born and raised in Denver CO. He went to Audio Engineering school in New York and currently resides in Oakland CA. Over the past six years he has been working hard on his career as an Audio Engineer and Producer before then, not so hard working. He has produced for such artists as Mickey Theis and Truck North and plans to keep on with the keepin’ on. Neon has seven children out of wedlock and tends to provide for three of them even though this was not his previous plan. Neon likes sorbet, sunlight, two of his children and pizza. As a child he picked up the guitar and learned to play people. As an adult he has watched his one son to grow up into a funeral and there for will never have children again. As a wise old man he will throw lavish parties full of half naked women and seltzer where talking is optional. Space suits are his past time and when his life is over he hopes to accomplish hoop dreams. That is all. You’re welcome.”

Now that you’re up on his music, don’t miss Neon Brown at The Solution Showcase #11 on Saturday, 12/22, along with Q-Tip/No I.D. protege Spree Wilson, Fresh Breath Committee’s Fo Chief and all three Solution DJs; DJ Low Key, Sounds Supreme & Lazy Eyez at the Meadowlark (2701 Larimer St).

Meet Spree Wilson, our featured out of town act for The Solution Showcase #11 on 12/22 at the Meadowlark…

Denver, meet ATLien Spree Wilson.  We first heard of Spree a few years back when he dropped “Word!” with one of his mentors No I.D. (video below) because well, we’ll check out anything No I.D. produces based on his work with Common, Jay-Z and such, not to mention the mentoring of his most infamous protege, Kanye West.  It took me a minute to get used to Spree’s voice and No I.D.’s strangely electronic beat but it grew on me, just as I was hearing other work of his pop up on albums/mixtapes with Novel and DJ Deckstream and realizing the full on scope of dude’s talent.  From there we heard a few more solo joints, “Pick You Apart” and some leaks from his critically acclaimed The Never Ending Now project which became staples in DJ sets at The Solution and while Low Key DJed at Guess.

Next thing I know I’m seeing Q-Tip shouting out Spree Wilson left and right, mentioning they’re working together some and talk of Spree linking up with the likes of Outkast producers extraordinaires Organized Noise and The Flush, as well as G.O.O.D. music.  Spree did in fact link up with Kanye and crew, with writing credits on the Cruel Summer album plus six more yet to be released songs (!!!!!), as well as getting some work on the upcoming Cee-Lo and Theophilus London projects.  Then just a few weeks back, Spree dropped the ATL-bass inspired super JAM, “Right One, Wrong Time”, that we can’t stop playing, making now a great time to have him out for The Solution Showcase.
