Meet Cysko Rokwel, A.V.I.U.S. & Es Nine aka Prime Element, our featured Denver group for The Solution Showcase #9 on Saturday, 9/22 at the Meadowlark…

Denver, you probably already know them, but in case you don’t, meet producer Es Nine, MC A.V.I.U.S. & DJ Cysko Rokwel aka Prime Element (fka 3 The Hardway), easily one of the top groups in #COhiphop.  After linking up under the name 3 The Hardway in 2007, the group changed their name to Prime Element in 2010 and dropped their official debut album, Set In Stone, a year later on Kamikazi Airlines Records to both local and international acclaim (Prime Element gets mad love overseas).  Since then, Cysko, Es Nine & A.V.I.U.S. have been traveling the country on tour with the likes of Swollen Members, Dilated Peoples, People Under the Stairs, Souls Of Mischief, Sweatshop Union and Saigon while playing on top notch stages like the Warped Tour, as well as a who’s who of top Colorado venues, bringing a finely tuned show built upon the classic MC/DJ/producer combo to tens of thousands of hip hop fans in just a few short years. Check out the rest of the post for a taste of Prime Element’s music and more info on each member.

Es Nine

You might remember Es Nine as our featured producer for The Solution Showcase #2 back in January.  If you came out that night, I don’t even need to explain how Es Nine is bringing boom bap to a new generation of hip hop fans or mention that he’s produced tracks for indie hip hop heavyweights like KRS-One, Dilated Peoples, Encore, Killah Priest, Prince Po, Kam Moye, Fashawn & Apathy or that he’s one of the most requested engineers in the Denver area, but in case you didn’t make it out and don’t already know, check out his instrumental project, Light Of Day, to get more familiar with one of Colorados top producers.  P.S. Es Nine is also a very dope DJ, which you might also already know if you’ve been to the great Denver hip hop parties that he’s involved in, such as The (formerly 90s) House Party and Ya Dig! (with Cysko Rowkel).

4 Time US DMC Finalist.  2 Time US DMC Runner Up.  2010 East Coast DMC Champion.  2 Time Colorado DMC Champion.  Crunk Brother.  CO turntablist legend.  Incredibly dope DJ.  Those are just a few of the titles that Cysko Rokwel has acquired on his way to becoming one of the top DJs in Colorado and the country.  And while Cysko is most known for being one of the fiercest DMC competitors of the last decade, he’s also dropped some great mixtapes (his Best Of The Beatnuts tape is CRAZY!) and been a fixture on the party scene (alongside Es Nine) with events like the The (90s) House Party & Ya Dig!.

A.V.I.U.S.

Prime Element frontman A.V.I.U.S. is best known within the context of the group, but has been busy on the Denver scene since his pre-3 The Hardway/Prime Element solo debut, Patience, dropped in 2007.  Over that 5 year period, A.V.I.U.S. has commanded a wide variety of crowds in true MC fashion along with Es Nine & Cysko as a member of Prime Element while also keeping a few rhymes in the stash for a solo project.  Last year, he dropped that solo project, For Better or Worse, an EP on House Of Waxx Recordings led by the Es Nine-produced single “Same Ol Line”, which includes verses by XXL Freshman cover feature Fashawn & Evidence (of Dilated Peoples).

Friday, 1/20 -> The Solution Showcase #2 w/Inka One, The Foodchain, Es Nine, DJ Low Key, Sounds Supreme & Lazy Eyez at the Meadowlark…

FRIDAY, 1/20 -> First off, thank you Denver. The first Solution Showcase was packed full of great people and great energy.  All the performers left the party raving about how cool the crowd was, saying everything from “that was the best show I’ve ever been a part of” to “you guys have a great thing going on in Denver”; so thank y’all for being so damn cool.  Everybody I talked to in the crowd showed love right back, excited to see some of their favorites rock and learn about other dope new music.  Just about everything went according to plan, better than expected even; and on that note, it’s my pleasure to announce the lineup for The Solution Showcase #2 at the Meadowlark (2701 Larimer St).

He’s one of LA’s favorite DJs, the founder of Boombox, one of the best hip hop parties in the country, was a key part of Basementalism’s national college radio dominance in the mid 2000s and still somehow manages to hate 99% of the music that comes out, your favorite hater Inka One.

In my humble opinion, their new album Brunch is one of the best #COHipHop albums of all time, they’ve rocked with a who’s who of hip hop over the last few years and made fans worldwide, you know them as The Foodchain.

Our featured producer is a member of Prime Element and En Stereo, was named by best producer in Denver by Westword in ‘09, and has produced songs for KRS-One, Dilated Peoples, Fashawn, Killah Priest & a whole lot of other notable artists, the one and only Es Nine.

The Solution DJs aka me, Sounds Supreme and Lazy Eyez will also be rocking throughout the night, bringing you the very best in hip hop & more.  And in keeping with the Brunch theme, we’ll have complimentary silver dollar pancakes from 9-10pm to sweeten the deal, so make sure you come out early.  Just like last time, we’ll be posting music & videos from everybody performing over the next few weeks to get y’all familiar, so don’t worry if you’re not up on the whole lineup, just know that me, Sounds & Lazy aren’t gonna steer you wrong (a big focus of this night is about introducing Denver to great new music, that is what DJs are supposed to do, right?).  Stay tuned to @DenverSolution for more info, a chance to win free tickets & another contest.  21+ /// $5 Pre-sales available at Family Affair downtown (plus get 15% your entire purchase when you buy a Solution Showcase ticket) /// $8 at the door. – DJ Low Key
