Denver’s smokin’ little hip-hop fusion act, Air Dubai, announced last week that they’d be joining the Journeys Noise Tour with Mariana’s Trench. And yesterday, they announced that they’re going to be on the Charlotte date at The Fillmore on June 5!
I’ve described them before as the musical offspring of Jamiroquai and Bell Biv Devoe – everything you loved about late 90s hip-hop, fused with a horn section and atmospheric synthesizer. Then drop in some straight up rock n’ roll guitar, and crazy, hooky melodies here and there…and there you’ve got Air Dubai. They are totally unique, and I’ve become a big fan of their style over the last two years or so.
Shortly after recording an EP with Dwight Baker in Austin (who also has worked with my beloved Alpha Rev and Saints of Valory boys, and is currently in a project called The Wind and the Wave with Patricia Lynn, formerly of The Soldier Thread), the six-piece signed to Hopeless Records, adding some depth to the label’s roster with their hip-hop flair.
Check out the fellas rockin’ their song “Warning” (featuring the incomparable Patricia Lynn) in the video below…I dare ya to listen to it just once.
Should be a killer show. Pre-sale tickets are already available (Citi Card); general public goes on sale on Friday. $15. Pick ’em up here.
