Wednesday, 2/26 -> The 2014 Solution Beat Battle Contestants! Catch all 12 plus a ridiculous amount of talent showcasing at The 2014 Solution Beat Battle at Beauty Bar Denver!!!

WEDNESDAY, 2/26 -> This year’s Solution Beat Battle had more entries than the previous two and it was tougher than ever for us to narrow it down to a dozen entries (hence the half a day delay in posting the contestants, sorry to keep y’all waiting). We got a ton of top notch beat submissions and appreciate everyone who entered; some were really dope just a little too relaxed for a battle, some showed a lot of potential but needed a little refinement and someone had to be the tough 13th person who was super close to making it, so if you submitted and didn’t get in, definitely don’t think it was because your beats were wack. Big up everyone who entered, everyone who’s competing and best of luck to all of you tomorrow and in the future!!!

AG Flux

Al Kelly

Broken

Cliff Cage

Diles

DJ Matt Cassidy

DJ Paradox

DMD

Infamous Jones

Mikey Fresh

Rhyme Progression

Skizzaz Skullface

P.S. Don’t forget about The Solution Beat Workshop

WEDNESDAY, 2/26 from 5-7pm -> We’re excited to holding our first Solution Beat Workshop, featuring Chicago producer/MC extraordinaire Brandun Deshay (production credits include Chance The Rapper, Danny Brown, Casey Veggies, Curren$y, Dom Kennedy, Tanya Morgan & lots more), Denver favorite Big J. Beats and 2013 Solution Beat Battle winner DJ Spyda T.E.K. talking production techniques, creative processes, equipment and software, the business side of beatmaking, answering questions from the crowd and more before the battle gets going.  The focus will be intermediate and advanced techniques, but all ability levels are welcome.  The workshop is free with a $10 ticket to The Solution Beat Battle.

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.

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)

Featuring exclusives and world premiers from Von Pea, Ilyas and Donwill of Tanya Morgan, Exile, DJ Day, Che Grand, Kooley High, Median, Donnis, Ro Blvd, Mike Baker, 1 O.A.K., Whygee, Kid Hum, 8thW1, Adad, Buff1, Waajeed, Moe Green & more.
