Friday, 2/6 at 7pm -> The Solution’s 8 Year Anniversary Party + The Art Of Records IV:4 Decades Of Classics opening! DJ Low Key, Lazy Eyez & guest Sounds Supreme, classic album artwork reimagined by 15 of Denver’s best artists, live screenprinting by Filthe, Armando & Blake’s birthdays, live performances from CRL CRRLL and Yonnas of BLKHRTS, free Solution buttons, ZenOne & more at The Meadowlark!!! #TheSolution8…

FRIDAY, 2/6 at 7pm -> 8 years. Wow. Seems like just yesterday that me & Sounds Supreme started The Solution with no grand plans, just an idea to make the kind of party we wanted to go to and have doing it. At the time, we didn’t know quite what that was, but we knew we were tired of playing the same top 40 records for whatever crowd happened to walk into the club/bar that offered us the most money on a Friday night. The Solution wasn’t the first time either of us tried to start our own party, but somehow we were able to use everything we had learned from previous attempts to promote our own events, combine that with a large amount of youthful determination and somehow get the party of to a good enough start to ride through the initial struggle that starting anything different and unique can be.

Over the last 8 years, we’ve bounced around venues, Sounds Supreme fell back from weekly duties and Lazy Eyez joined the party, we added our official photographer Knower Of The Ledge, we’ve thrown a bunch of offshoot events and done of lot of pretty damn cool stuff, that frankly, I wouldn’t have ever considered a possibility when our little party started. All the changes and particularly the success we’ve had since partnering up with The Meadowlark (who we can’t praise enough) have us hungrier than ever and excited about how far we can take the party. That’s led us to film a video for CRL CRRLL’s “Cheers”, launch a small Solution Records label to release music we believe in and constantly strive to upgrade everything we can about the party. Hopefully you’ll dig some of the new projects we work on as we try to figure out what exactly the next level is and take the party there.

If you follow us or come out regularly, I’m sure you’ve noticed that we praise and shout out our crowd constantly. We know that there are DJs trying to throw cool niche parties like The Solution all over the world that don’t pan out, often times because there’s not a musically inclined, open-minded crowd coming out to help get the party off the ground, and we know that we could very easily be in the same boat without your love and support, so on that note, let me thank you on behalf of the whole crew for an INCREDIBLE 8 years and cheers to many, many more Denver!!! – DJ Low Key

So anyway, let’s talk 2015 and all the great stuff we have lined up to celebrate our 8 year anniversary! On an all month long note, we’re excited to bring together an all-star lineup of Denver favorites for The Art Of Records IV:4 Decades Of Classics, the latest in our ongoing art show series based around reimaginations of classic album art and the vinyl records the sound and art are immortalized on. 2/6/15 is the show’s opening party and to make sure there’s ample time for everyone to take in the artwork before things get too crazy, we’re going to be starting the party early, at 7pm, for First Friday fun. Check out the fantastic lineup of artists we have contributing to the show:

Joseph Martinez
Karma Leigh
Meeg Conroy
Thomas Evans
Jaime Molina
Michael Coriano
Tristan Minton
Patrick Hansen
Delton Demarest
El Marsito
Dunn The Signtologist

On top of the beautiful surroundings, we’ll be welcoming party co-founder Sounds Supreme out to join weekly residents DJ Low Key & Lazy Eyez on the turntables for what’s sure to be some inspired music. We’re excited to start getting Sounds Supreme back involved in the party with monthly guest spots, so stay tuned for more from him. We’ll also be celebrating the birthdays of our two favorite photographers, official Solution photographer Knower Of The Ledge aka Armando Geneyro and his #TheyShootn associate Blake Jackson. Both of these guys have taken a ton of great photos of the party & probably you if you’re a party regular, so make sure to wish them the best and grab them a birthday drink or two.

As if that wasn’t enough, Filthe is going to bless us with live ‘bring your own shirt’ screenprinting once again!!! Bring a tee, sweatshirt, hoodie, sweatpants, etc and he’ll customize it into fresh new Solution gear, on us!!! Don’t have a shirt to bring in? Don’t worry, we’ll have some available for sale too! Check out the picture above from last time around (when he helped us retire our previous logo) for a taste. We also had to bring in two longtime friends of the party to do some quick, mid-party performances of their party anthems. CRL CRRLL will be performing “Cheers”, party favorite and the first single from the upcoming Solution Tape #2 and Yonnas from BLKHRTS will be performing “Porties”, their super dope club anthem from last year. We’ll also have some nice new Solution buttons, hot off the press, as well as party photos by Knower Of The Ledge & ZenOne. Whew. That was a lot. Gonna be a classic night, don’t miss it!!! Things kick off at 7pm, no cover until 11pm & just $5 after. 2701 Larimer Street.

Friday, 10/10 -> CRL CRRLL “Cheers” video shoot at The Solution w/DJ Low Key, Lazy Eyez & special guest Sounds Supreme at The Meadowlark! Introducing ZenOne, photos by Knower Of The Ledge & more, shouts to Black Sock Productions!!!

FRIDAY, 10/10 -> We’re super excited to welcome a few friends down for an extra special Friday night of The Solution. First off, we’ll be teaming up with Black Sock Productions to shoot some footage for CRL CRRLL’s upcoming video for the INCREDIBLE song “Cheers”, which you’ve probably heard us play by now as it happens to be one of our favorite songs out and the first single from the upcoming Solution Tape #2.

On top of that, we’ll also be welcoming Solution co-founder and party rocker extraordinaire DJ Sounds Supreme back to join party residents DJ Low Key & Lazy Eyez on the turntables. It’s always a blast when Sounds comes back for a guest spot and 10/10 should be no different. Last but definitely not least, we’re excited to announce that Goodness favorite ZenOne is coming on board as a new party sponsor. As usual, Knower Of The Ledge will be in the place making you look good with his party photos (check our Instagram and Facebook for proof) and we’ll be rocking all the best in hip hop and lots more at The Meadowlark (2701 Larimer St). 21+ / 9pm / No cover until 11pm, only $5 after.

P.S. The patio heaters are on and ready for Fall, so we shouldn’t miss a beat as the seasons change!!!

The Solution named “Best Club Night Return” in Westword 2013 Best Of Denver…

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 DJs Low Key and 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
