With two events down, including the offical relaunch of the Solution weekly at the Meadowlark a few weeks back and last weekend's Denver Dre Day, #TheSolution6, a celebration marking the sixth anniversary of the Solution's founding at Milk Bar, is well under way. Tonight at Beauty Bar, the Solution crew hosts its second annual Beat Battle with Exile and Johaz of Dag Savage, as well as BK Beats, who took home the crown last year, plus beatmaker extraordinaire Boonie Mayfield (aka Solomon Vaughn) and Fast Foward.
The celebration continues at Unit E tomorrow night, when the Solution crew hosts its annual J Dilla celebration with sets by DJ Low Key, Deejay SD and DJ Chonz, along with a video tribute by DJ Check One, a beat tribute by Big J Beats, a 7-inch vinyl Donuts sample set by Brik-A-Brak, and live rhythm from Casey Sidwell and Dameion Hines. Don't just show up and expect to get in, though: You've gotta RSVP for this joint.
Finally, #TheSolution6 will culminate with the most unique of all these events and definitely one of our favorites from last year, The Art of Records II at the Meadowlark. DJ Low Key and Dunn the Signtologist team up to curate the event, which focuses on taking classic hip-hop album covers and having local artists (participating artists, Michael Coriano, Thomas Evans, Joseph Martinez, Tristan Minton, Ian Rumley, Dunn the Signtologist and more) reimagine them in their style. While you peruse the artwork, DJ Low Key spins a set from the records being featured, all on vinyl. The opening runs from 6 to 10 p.m., after which the party rolls directly into the Solution. Trust us: This will be fresh, and you won't want to miss it. Head over to DenverSolution.com for more on this and the other #TheSolution6 events.
