September 12, 2012 - Denver, CO - Denver-based band Air Dubai will begin streaming the first single from the group’s upcoming sophomore studio album “Be Calm” at noon today. The track is called “All Day,” and it was recorded, produced and mixed at Matchbox Recording Studios in Austin, TX by Dwight Baker (Brandi Carlile, Alpha Rev).
Air Dubai is a dynamic seven-piece hip-hop/pop group based in Denver, CO. With disparate musical backgrounds and indiscriminate influences, the young men of Air Dubai have truly created something new: a sound that’s all their own.
Vocalists Julian Thomas and Jon Shockness founded the band in the summer of 2008 as a duo. In spring of 2009, instrumentalists Nick Spreigl, Lawrence Grivich, Michael Ray, Taylor Tait and Wesley Watkins joined the group,rounding out the current line-up and sound. Since then, Air Dubai has gone on to collect several major accolades, including Denver’s Westword magazine’s 2010 “Best New Hip-Hop Act” award.
The band’s debut studio album, Wonder Age, which spawned the breakout hit “Lasers,” was released in October of 2010, capitalizing on two years of anticipation built solely upon explosive live performances. Critically acclaimed and immensely popular, an Air Dubai show is a unique experience; a place where passion and soul collide with just plain having a good time. The band’s last release was an EP, Day Escape, which came out in October of 2011.
Air Dubai has shared the stage with such diverse artists as OneRepublic, Rise Against, 3Oh!3, Flobots, The Pharcyde,Bone Thugs-n-Harmony, Chiddy Bang, The Game, Mayer Hawthorne & The County, Rakim, Guru, People Under The Stairs, Sweatshop Union and Lyrics Born, among others. [Via Press Release]
