.:Make sure you RSVP for $5 admission at RedBullSoundSelect.com:.

In one of the most exciting developments of an already amazing 2014, I’ll be curating a series of Red Bull Sound Select shows here in Denver! What does that mean, exactly? It means that every few months this year, I’ll be throwing shows with top national talent and the best of Denver’s local scene, all around the city! My first RBSS show is features the legendary Bun B, Denver favorite FL and CO all-stars The Reminders, with Lazy Eyez & myself hosting and rocking the turntables at The Marquis Theater!!!

It’s gonna be an honor to bring Houston’s honorary mayor and half of pioneering Texas duo UGK (RIP Pimp C), Bun B, out to Denver for a show. As far as I know, he hasn’t been out in Denver since the DNC in 2008 and hasn’t had a public show out here that I can think of; so make sure you save the date and don’t miss a rare chance to see a living legend live and in the flesh. Bun will be joined by The Foodchain’s FL, who’s probably my all-time favorite rapper to come out of Denver, based on his work on the three stellar Foodchain albums and his ridiculously good solo debut, Limbo. FL & Bun will be joined by The Reminders (aka Big Samir & Aja Black), a rare husband and wife rap duo who’s been traveling the country, garnering tons of attention and props from Hiero Day in the Bay to London, England to the Kennedy Center in Washington with their thoughtful brand of hip hop. Me & Lazy Eyez will be rounding out the bill, doubling up between the turntables and hosting duties for what should be a classic night hip hop in The Mile High City.

Things get started at 8pm and with the lineup we’ve got, things should be packed. To make things better, you can RSVP at RedBullSoundSelect.com for $5 entry to the show (that’s right, only $5!!! It’s still first come, first serve til we hit capacity) and access to to some great music, videos and more online. Otherwise, it’s still quite a deal of show at $15 (just make sure you show up early, because being ready to pay a heftier cover does you no good at a sold out show). Last but not least, huge shouts to artist Michael Coriano on the incredible flyer design! 18+/8pm/2009 Larimer St.

.:RSVP for $5 admission HERE:.

P.S. Stay tuned for more great monthly Red Bull Sound Select shows and new music in Denver, curated by myself, Holy Underground, Souls In Action & The UMS, all year long!!!

Thursday, January 12th, 2012 Guests, The Solution Showcase, Updates No Comments

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
