Introducing Aziatix: Trio Talk Group’s Formation, Loyal Fans & Obstacles Of Being Asian

By Allen Starbury   /   Published 10/13/11

There's a subgenre of music that's bubbling around the world, especially in the hearts of teenagers and young adults. It's called K-pop. Originating in South Korea, acts (usually Korean), create music that has a mix of electropop, hip-hop, pop, rock, and R&B ... and has gained popularity thanks to social media and Youtube.

One act, in particular, we had a chance to speak to is a trio called Aziatix, comprised of three Asian American artists from different parts of the country -- Flowsik (Queens, NY), Eddie (Boston), and Nicky (Los Angeles).

They began working together just over a year and a half ago, and has since built loyal fanbase that follows them to show around the world. So loyal, they are called "Aziaddicts."

While making their debut performance in Los Angeles a few months ago, Aziatix saw fans fly in from Singapore to catch their Hollywood show. Backstage, we spoke about their roller coaster career over the past 12 months ... and how -- after breaking into the overseas and Asian markets -- they hope to make an impact on the U.S. pop charts, much like their Asian peers, the Far East Movement.

Although they are fairly new, their fanbase has grown quickly, helping their Youtube video garner hundreds of thousands of views, and pushing their EP Nocturnal and singles to top spots on Apple's iTunes charts.

So, we introduce you to the Aziatix. For more, visit Aziatix.com.

    The interview was great!! Is great to hear to them talk about how the feel about their fans and    how they want to break to wall that divide us because of nationalities or races, the only thing that really matters is music, and they are putting their hearts on it!!!  So They are gonna keep grown up!!!  I really wish them the best ^_^.

    I like the fact that Nicky oppa didn't dwell on the "being asian" question.Race has nothing to do with it,as they rightly said,it's all about producing great music & they have been doing a great job so far ^_^ Aziatix all didday!!!!

    U asked what I liked best? Your lack of pretentiousness. You all have experience, success on your own but you are still humble about wanting to do what is passionate to you & share it with others.
