We’re excited to be wrapping up a ridiculously fun month of events for #TheSolution7 in grand fashion (no pun intended…LOL) with a the first ever Solution Beat Swap & Fashion Show!!! We’ll be combining music and fashion with styles by Akomplice Clothing, Family Affair, Karma Leigh & Xencs L. Wing, records by ten top Denver diggers and both gear and vinyl from the lovely ladies at Judith & Joe Fashion & Records mobile boutique. We teamed up with the crew at Akomplice for sample sale back in December, which was a hit despite sub-zero temperatures all night, so we decided to bring back the sample sale for round 2; with a great selection of one of a kind items, rarities and more great Akomplice gear on sale at deeply discounted prices (tip: come early at 7pm for the choicest record & gear selections).

Combining music and fashion is just the start though, Moontower Tacos will be back at the Meadowlark too, bringing their uniquely delicious Austin-style tacos to the party. Solution residents DJ Low Key & Lazy Eyez will be on the turntables, Knower Of The Ledge will be catching the fun on film and the night’s gonna be so much that we’re gonna start early at 7pm. Should be a perfect way to cap off a fantastic month of events to celebrate our 7 years of bringing Denver the best in hip hop & lots more, hopefully we’ll see you there!!! 2701 Larimer St / 21+ / No cover until 11, only $5 after.  More info on the party on Facebook/Twitter/Tumblr/Instagram.

Great Winter Goodness/The Solution’s 8th Annual J Dilla Celebration recap by Black Sock Productions…

YouTube Preview Image

Very dope video recap of last Sunday’s Winter Goodness w/DJ Low Key & friends/The Solution w/DJ Low Key & Lazy Eyez’s 8th Annual J Dilla Celebration on The Meadowlark’s patio by Black Sock Productions ltd..

The weather was better than we could have ever hoped for, the crowd was filled with a ton of regulars from the Summer and smiling faces, Moontower Tacos blessed us with great food, Judith & Joe brought the records & gear, and most importantly, me, DJ SpydaTek & DJ Lazy Eyez had an opportunity to play Dilla for 8+ hours; it was about as good as a Sunday gets.

Goodness returns (in grand fashion) on May 4th…Until then, catch The Solution w/DJ Low Key & Lazy Eyez every Friday night at the Meadowlark!!!

Sunday, 2/16 -> Winter Goodness aka The Solution’s 8th Annual J Dilla Celebration w/DJ Low Key, special guests DJ Lazy Eyez & DJ Spyda T.E.K., a special menu by Moontower Tacos, Judith & Joe Records & Fashion Truck, photos by Knower of the Ledge & more on the Meadowlark’s (enclosed & heated) patio!!!

From djlowkey.com: SUNDAY, 2/16 from 2-10pm -> Every time the weather gets over 50 degrees on a Sunday I get text messages from people saying they miss Goodness and I basically respond the same way every time, “you think you miss it, that’s my baby! LOL”.  With that said, on Sunday, 2/16/14, for one day only, we’ll be bringing Goodness w/DJ Low Key & friends back for a Winter, all J Dilla edition on the Meadowlark’s incredible, newly enclosed and of course, heated patio (2701 Larimer St).  With this Winter Goodness doubling as The Solution’s 8th Annual J Dilla Celebration, I’ll be joined by Lazy Eyez & DJ Spyda T.E.K. as we dig deep in the crates to bring you an 8 hour shift of Jay Dee classics, rarities, samples, b-sides and so on.

Official Solution photographer Knower Of The Ledge will be in the building snapping flicks and we’re excited to be welcoming our friends Judith & Joe Fashion & Records mobile boutique back out to join the fun. As if that wasn’t enough, Moontower Tacos will be back in the building, serving their insanely good food. The icing on the cake though, is that me and the cooks at Moontower are creating a special Dilla Taco that’s gonna be incredible (think about how delicious their chicken & waffle taco is for an example of how the magic of sweet, savory and spicy will play out), as well as some other tasty treats. Things are getting going an hour earlier than Goodness 2013, at 2pm, and we’re rocking til 10 at night. Turn it up!!! No Cover / 21+.

P.S. Goodness w/DJ Low Key & friends is scheduled to return for the 2014 season on Sunday, 5/4.  Put it in your calendar now & don’t miss your chance to get an unprecedented Winter fix on 2/16.

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

DJ Low Key & Sounds Supreme – The Solution Tape #1 (hosted by U-N-I & Ro Blvd)
