Paul Basic
Paul Basic
Starting out as a drummer, Colorado producer Paul Brandt aka Paul Basic joined a band with Derek Vincent Smith (Pretty Lights) and Michal Menert in high school before they each moved on to pursue solo production work. In fall 2011 Paul released his debut EP 'The Mirror' on Pretty Lights Music which features a gritty, nostalgic sound blending dusty samples, grainy synths, biting bass and thick drums - a combination that earned him an integral place within the PLM movement.

Paul's follow-up LP 'Transient Horizons' is a more refined delivery of his dark, heavy beats and shows a unique range of mood and musicality. The album features collaborations with Pretty Lights, Michal Menert, and Trophy Beats. Available now for free download from Pretty Lights Music.
Air Dubai
Air Dubai
To describe Air Dubai as one thing, one sound, or one genre would be missing out on the other 100 things this band is. Whether soft and sweet like a love song or hard hitting and brash as a thunderstorm, Air Dubai blends genres, sounds and emotions without blinking an eye. With that said they're not trying to do anything but make heartfelt, believable music for the people who can't help but listen.

Born out of the mostly lacking climate that is Denver Hip Hop, MC Julian Thomas and MC/Singer Jon Shockness created Air Dubai as a way to shake up the norms of not only Colorado Hip Hop but Hip Hop in general. This plan was put into strong action when in October of 2008 the duo released their independent album "The Early October", a jazz tinged Hip Hop album that's topics ranged from love songs, to songs about the conflict between America and the middle east.

Quickly after "The Early October" was released the duo began writing and producing for an electronic Hip Hop EP which they were to title "The Okay Lemonade EP". However, by April of 2008 this EP was scrapped when both Jon and Julian decided they wanted to move into a more organic sound. Directly following the release of their last duo recording "The Party On! EP", a EP featuring the song "Party On!", 3 remixes and a acapella version for producers, both members decided the next step for Air Dubai was to move out of beats and move into a newer sound. Thus, transforming Air Dubai from a duo to a full 7 member band.

This change of instrumentation also changed the overall feel and spirit of Air Dubai. Adding members, Nick Spreigl on Drums, Wesley Watkins on Trumpet, Taylor Tait on Bass, Lawrence Grivich on Guitar and Michael Ray on Keys/Synth- Air Dubai was no longer a Hip Hop group but a group that could branch out and permeate the constrictions of the music they had previously created. With this, not only did their sound grow but their live performance improved as well. Colorado Magazine "Colorado Music Buzz" wrote about the group's live show and debut album saying "Not only did the young wordsmiths create an album that would lead one to believe they are more seasoned than some of their peers, but also do what so many of their predecessors seem to forgo: perform with unmatched tenacity."

The journey for Air Dubai has just begun and with their upcoming full band release on the way, Air Dubai is ready to take music to a whole new altitude

"Sitting at the judges' table, it was clear from the moment Denver hip-hop/rock group Air Dubai finished their first song that they'd be winning the competition." - Dave Burdick, Colorado Daily - Battle of Bands Review (October 26, 2009)

"(As) Air Dubai continues to find success in an ever-turbulent scene, we (can) take comfort knowing that their rise isn't based on some sort of hype created by a machine, but merely a product of their hard work, dedication and natural talent." - 7 Day, Colorado Music Buzz (September 1, 2009)

"Right now, the Front Range is brimming with a staggering number of talented hip-hop purveyors, an impressive class that includes Air Dubai" - Dave Herrera, Westword Magazine (June 9, 2009)

"I love it! Gym Class Heroes with more R&B influence. Really cool" - Chris Gordon, The Summer Circuit (Band) (Jul 09, 2009)

"It's going to be a treat to watch this act develop." - Eryc Eyl, Westword Magazine (April 16, 2009)

"These songs sound like they've been percolating in the imaginations of Julian Thomas and Jon Shockness for years in terms of what would make for killer hip-hop songs." - Tom Murphy, Westword Magazine (February 18, 2009)
The Reminders
The Reminders
The Reminders are a remarkable hip-hop duo that is steadily rising to the top of the independent music scene. The team, consisting of Brussels-born emcee Big Samir, and Queens-born emcee/vocalist Aja Black, are definitely a creative force to be reckoned with. Big Samir, weaves intricate rhythmic patterns with a bilingual French/English flow, displaying his street-smart credibility in both his lyrics and cool demeanor. This is beautifully complimented by Aja Black's confident delivery, diverse cadences, and unique vocal stylings. The two have undeniably magical chemistry, as well they should. Sharing more than lyrical ability and stages, the couple is partners in both music and life, and have been married for almost a decade.

Releasing their debut album 'Recollect' in 2008, The Reminders have been launched into the spotlight. Recognized and applauded for their ability seamlessly blend magnetic rhymes and soaring vocals, the group pulls from a combination of musical genres, creating an array of sounds that resonate in the ears and hearts of many. Oft compared to the Fugees, Blackstar, and Digable Planets, The Reminders can definitely carry their own weight, and are more than able to standout amongst their contemporaries. Their stage presence wows crowds the world over, allowing the the duo to uplift and entertain all at once.
Their unique mashup of razor sharp rhymes, raw, soulful vocals, and reggae-infused hip hop beats form the perfect backdrop for their relevant and inspiring themes, leaving a lasting impression on listeners, with audiences always wanting more.

Having shared the stage with artists such as Snoop Dogg, Fishbone, Barrington Levy, Black Star, Big Boi, KRS-One, Rakim, K'Naan, and others, the Reminders have established a firm place in today's changing scene, garnering international acclaim while paving a path al their own.
More than a shade of the same color that we have seen time and time again, this group transcends the bounds of what is expected. More than a breath of fresh air, The Reminders deepen the roots of hip-hop's Golden Era, raising its soul up high, propelling it forward into the future. With the release of their new album, 'Born Champions' these two are truly headed for something incredibly special.
