About

from Denver, CO
Hip-Hop Alternative
A heady mix of hip-hop, pop, soul, rock and electronic, Air Dubai exists not to fit into one specific category or sound, but instead to create something new and fresh on each album and even every song. Read Full Bio

Denver band Air Dubai is more than the sum of its parts. It's not about the exciting combination of eclectic genres or even the explosive onstage energy. The group's appeal lies in its member's passion for the music they create, as well as their love for the people who come to see them perform. A heady mix of hip- hop, pop, soul, rock and electronic, Air Dubai exists not to fit into one specific category or sound, but instead to create something new and fresh on each album and even every song.

The band's roots date back to 2008, when high school friends singer Jon Shockness and rapper Julian Thomas decided to create a hip-hop duo using the name Air Dubai. Originally utilizing pre-recorded beats, the pair collaborated for a year until they both felt the need to create music more organically. By spring of 2009, Air Dubai had its first rehearsal as a live band with instruments. By rounding out the lineup with Nick Spreigl (drums), Lawrence Grivich (guitar), Michael Ray (keyboard/synth), and Taylor Tait (bass), Air Dubai was able to transform itself into a shape-shifting powerhouse of talent, seamlessly blending genres and styles.

To date, the seven-piece has two official releases: 2010's "Wonder Age" (produced by Andrew Guerrero of Flobots) and 2011's "Day Escape" (produced by Sylvia Massy, whose credits include Red Hot Chili Peppers, Tool and Prince). The albums showcase impressive musical dexterity and songwriting ability, but the true magic lies in Air Dubai's live shows; energetic, soulful performances fueled mainly by the faithful fans that come to see them play.

In December of 2012 the band announced their signing to Hopeless Records and released a song bundle through iTunes, which included their songs "Warning" & "All Day".
"Signing with Hopeless was like finding the final horcrux; now we have all the proper materials to destroy it..." - drummer Nick Spreigl

Air Dubai has received numerous critical and commercial accolades: voted Westword magazine's "Best Hip Hop Band" of 2010, 2011 & 2012, winner of Channel 93.3 KTCL's 2011 "Hometown For The Holidays" competition, multiple songs featured on MTV's hit series Jersey Shore and in Hollister stores nationwide. The band has also shared the stage with a wide array of local and national artists, including OneRepublic, 3Oh!3 and Rise Against.
In 2013, Air Dubai plans to release a new album, continue touring and increase their fan base worldwide.
