Meet Von Pea, our featured out of town act for The Solution Showcase #13 on Friday, 2/22…

This month’s featured out of town artist is an all-time Solution favorite and good friend of the party, Brooklynati’s own Von Pea (of Tanya Morgan), and he’s making his long overdue solo Denver debut, complete with fresh new material and classics in tow.  Von’s been out to The Solution as much as anyone over the years, but always performing with Donwill (and sometimes Ilyas) as Tanya Morgan.  This time he’s gonna be out here performing tracks from Pea’s Gotta Have It, premiering new joints from his upcoming Duly Noted EP with Aeon (set to drop next month, but if you e-mail DulyNoted@DenverSolution.com we’ll send you the exclusive Solution preview) & lots more.  Here’s a little more about Brooklynati’s own Von Pea, in the words of TM’s publicist:

Born and raised in Brooklyn, New York, Von Pea (of Tanya Morgan) has been emceeing since 1991 and producing since 2000. Initially attracted to hip-hop by the likes of Another Bad Creation and many other young rappers that were near his own age, Von would eventually shift his interest to those who would become his strongest influences – A Tribe Called Quest, De La Soul, Big Daddy Kane, DJ Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince, and Biggie. In 2002 Von Pea began an alliance with the original members of North Carolina rap group Little Brother (Phonte, Rapper Big Pooh, and 9th Wonder) which lead him to being featured on such projects as Phonte and Nicolay’s Foreign Exchange Connected album (“Von Sees”), and Little Brother’s The Minstrel Show (“Cheatin” interlude). In addition to his group’s music, Von has released acclaimed projects such as 2003’s“Custom Fitted, 2007’s Grand Vonye, and his late 2007 remix project American Angster which has been considered one of the best of the Jay Z remix albums. Von Pea is also a member of the rap group Tanya Morgan. Von Pea’s latest solo album, Pea’s Gotta Have it, will be released October 19th.

Most importantly, take a minute to listen to the music, it speaks for itself.  I’m heading to pick Von up at the airport now, but stay tuned for a great interview with the Brooklynati MC/producer, courtesy of the 4th Door, coming tomorrow.  Last but not least, don’t miss Von Pea of Tanya Morgan’s solo Denver debut at The Solution Showcase #13, along with performances by Denver favorites Diamond Boiz (aka Dyalekt, Zome & Zé), Fresh Breath Committee’s Paul Junior and The Solution’s own DJ Low Key & Lazy Eyez. 21+/Free until 11/$5 after/2701 Larimer St.

Friday, 2/22 -> The Solution Showcase #13 w/Von Pea (of Tanya Morgan), Diamond Boiz, Paul Junior, DJ Low Key & DJ Lazy Eyez at the Meadowlark…

FRIDAY, 2/22 -> It’s that time again, The Solution Showcase is back for another month with more of the best in national and Colorado-bred talent.  Things have been great with the monthly showcase, but we’re about to make them even better.  Instead of $8 at the door and $5 pre-sales, once a month we’ll be incorporating the monthly Solution Showcase into the new weekly Solution at the Meadowlark and keeping the price the same whenever possible.  That means NO COVER until 11pm and only $5 afterwards most of the time, even with stacked lineups of national and CO talent.  We figured the consistency would be good and if you tell a few friends about the lower price and showcases, then everybody wins.

With that said, let’s talk lineup.  For this month’s Solution Showcase #13, we’ve got an all-time Solution favorite and good friend of the party, Brooklynati’s own Von Pea (of Tanya Morgan), making his solo Denver debut, complete with fresh new material and classics in tow.  Von’s been out to The Solution as much as anyone over the years, but always performing with Donwill (and sometimes Ilyas) as Tanya Morgan.  This time he’s gonna be out here performing tracks from Pea’s Gotta Have It, premiering new joints from his upcoming Duly Noted EP with Aeon (set to drop next month, but if you e-mail DulyNoted@DenverSolution.com we’ll send you the exclusive Solution preview) and more.  He’ll be joined by Denver favorites Diamond Boiz (aka Dyalekt, Zome & Zé), Fresh Breath Committee’s Paul Junior and The Solution’s own DJ Low Key & Lazy Eyez on the turntables in another top notch bill. 21+/Free until 11/$5 after/2701 Larimer St.

A few pics from the Solution’s 5th Annual Lessondary Birthday Extravaganza…More coming soon…

Here’s a few pics of the madness at the Solution’s 5th Annual Lessondary Birthday Extravaganza…More are on the way…Shouts to Donwill & Von Pea aka Tanya Morgan for hosting/performing, the June birthdays in the house (Charley Cox, MC Big House & Monique), The Hai Bar/Sushi Hai for being such a gracious host (they raved about how cool the vibe was, thanks to the cool crowd) and most importantly, everybody who came out to celebrate. The craziest thing about this annual party is that even though we’re celebrating birthdays, it’s not like there’s some magically delicious cake or party games or even presents that make the party so much fun, it’s all of the great people who come to enjoy great music.  So thanks again for all the love Denver, y’all are cool as hell!!!

I Remember: The top 3 Solution moments from Brittney the Square and DJ Dozen…

To get ready for the 4th Anniversary of the Solution on Friday, Feb. 4th, we’re checking in with some of our favorite regulars and people around Denver to hear what their favorite moments from the party have been.  First up, we have R&B/soul music guru Brittney the Square and the youngest DJ in charge aka DJ Dozen sharing their top 3 Solution moments; stay tuned for more classic memories leading up to the party on 2/4.

Brittney The Square’s Top 3 Solution Moments:
1. The 2010 (4th Annual) Solution J Dilla Tribute w/ Slum Village at Bar Standard:  SV is the first hip hop group that really got me listening to hip hop back in 2002.  So, to meet them and see them perform at The Solution was amazing.  Although I spent most of the night in the back corner away from the party soliciting donations for the J Dilla Foundation, the night still managed to make my top 3 list for a few reasons:  1. meeting SV and seeing them perform some of my favorite tracks 2. eating all the damn donuts (powdered and chocolate were the preference) 3. hearing tracks that I had no idea Dilla produced and buggin’ out about it and of course, 4. supporting a good cause.

2.  Meeting my boyfriend at the Solution at the Funky Buddha:  It was either my first or second night ever at The Solution and I was helping out with usual stuff when Low Key introduced me to, who would later be, my future boyfriend.  When we met, we immediately got on the subject of, of course, music and our music preferences.  We talked about not only hip hop, but soul/r&b, which is my favorite.  I was impressed that he knew all of my favorite artists and I think he was impressed that I was so into and passionate about the same music as he was.  It took me awhile to really come around, but eventually I did.  Hate to admit it, but you can find love at the “club”.

3.  My third favorite Solution moment doesn’t have a name.  It’s just those random nights dancing and vibing to good ass music with your favorite people.  That’s what it’s all about, right?

DJ Dozen’s (yes, that’s him rocking the Thugnificent look for Halloween) Top 3 Solution Moments:
1.  The first annual Solution J Dilla tribute at Milk:  I hit up the party with Dealz, Mike Lee, and Gully Gabby; it was my first time seeing midwest music embraced in CO. At the ripe age of 18, I stepped out to see what this good music was all about. I still remember sittin wit Dealz and every so often yelling “Dilla Made This Too?!?” It was def a good experience.

2.  Exile, DJ Day, Tanya Morgan and Che Grand at the Solution at the Funky Buddha:  After a long day setting up and facilitating there is nothing better that to get an unexpected crazy live show.  Coming in, I knew that DJ Day and Exile were set to perform but at no point was I ready for the Micheal Jackson Tribute or for Donwill, Von Pea and Che Grand to rip freestyles over their beats mid party!!! Crazy night but super fun!

3.  Solution moments come in a blur for some of us who attend on a regular basis, not at all because they are the same, it’s more like having extra fun. Like I go out normally but the atmosphere aint like this; in the club jammin all night, with ya hands in the air, not worrying about any problems.  Of course there’s drinks too, but just an overall good feeling vibe going through everybody in the building.

Here’s an exclusive track that Von Pea recorded for DJ Low Key & Sounds Supreme – The Solution Tape #1, coming in early February.  Lessondary producer extraordinaire Suhburb laced a monster of a beat and Von murdered it on some fun, clubby ish (“I’m so lyrical, blah blah blah”).  If you don’t already know by now, Von Pea is a member/producer of the acclaimed rap group Tanya Morgan.  Check out his site/blog over at VonPea.com to get up to speed and make sure to check him next time he’s at the Solution, it should be soon (dude’s already been by four times…LOL).  If you’ve got a blog or web site, feel free to post up the direct link to the song and mention the upcoming mixtape, if not, please tell a friend or two about it on facebook or twitter or however.  Thanks for listening.

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
