BIO:

With his platform sneakers, multi-colored hair and trademark sunglasses, you won’t confuse Ian Erix with anybody else on the music scene right now. His eclectic style is a talking piece second to his music, which these days is perhaps best described as Pop with EDM and Pop-Punk influences.

De kender de tidligere værker, der først slynget Erix i det internationale søgelys, martret op over 20 million spiller online og landede ham på flere top 10 diagrammer på 3 kontinenter vil helt sikkert genkende signatur elementer af hans lyd, men de vil også helt sikkert sætte pris på den musikalske evolution Erix har gennemgået i færd med at gøre sin længe ventede ny rekord.

Adspurgt om hans musikalske stil og unikke tage på mode, Ian siger "Folk har en tendens til at have alle slags etiketter til mig, men jeg er bare mig. Jeg er en mutt, Jeg er alle blandet op!"Erix sang netop disse ord i" Så Scene, Så See Through ", et anthematic nummer fra hans 2010 EP that became a cult hit and spurred the creation of his fandom, the Mutt Army, a group of dedicated fans and freethinkers who identify with Ian and support him around the world via numerous global street teams. Slate for the summer of 2018, Ian vil frigive sin længe ventede nye album, tentatively titled “Scream For Freedom”, en rekord chokerede fuld af smitsomme melodier og kroge featuring overbevisende, tankevækkende og ofte finurlige tekster. Det nye materiale viser Erix er en formidabel sangskriver i sin egen ret, og markerer en betydelig vækst for ham som kunstner. He pays homage to his pop/punk roots on his most recent musical effort but this time around he marries his signature guitar driven score with solid amounts of modern dance beats and synth elements to create a fantastically catchy electro punk pop hybrid that is sure to resonate loudly with his current fans and open up the floodgates to a legion of new recruits.

Kom sin professionelle start i New York som en DJ / MC på ekstraordinært ung alder 9, Erix er en djævleblændt performer, with a precocious DIY attitude that has served him well throughout a wild journey that has taken him from his humble childhood home in America to nearly every corner of the globe. Mens Erix beskriver sin tur hidtil som en awesome eventyr, sandheden er, han har betalt mere end sin rimelige andel af afgifter, siden hans strejftog i musik. Han vittigheder ofte, at hans historie lyder som manuskriptet til en dårlig sæbeopera. A pre-teen Ian, with stars in his eyes, was abused and bullied by resentful family members and peers who seemed threatened by his individuality and persona. They continually told him he would never amount to anything and did their best to sabotag his early successes at every turn. På trods af de strabadser og naysayers, Erix continued to work full time as a DJ, rost som en af ​​verdens yngste, and built a grassroots reputation. He started writing his own songs and took on the monumental task of making inroads in the music industry from the ground up without any inside connections. Efter alder 14, he snagged his first management deal with the infamous boyband mogul, Louis Pearlman, which was followed up by his first record deal at age 15. Trods opfylde sin drøm om at underskrive sådanne kontrakter, Erix was met with a continuing series of ambivalent time wasters and dishonest executives who took advantage of him. Med tiden, a similar tale played out for Erix, igen og igen, for en eller anden grund. He was faced with record label bankruptcies, den chokerende narkorelateret dødsfald i hans personlige manager, money laundering schemes involving his former representatives and the murder and tragic loss of of two of his closest family members. Erix endured these tribulations plus many others too lengthy to list here and every time the rug was pulled out from underneath him, he adamantly refused to give up and continued to pursue his passion.

"Hvis du bliver slået ned, gøre det igen og igen og igen "Ian gribende synger i" Tomahawk ", a ferociously catchy tune that was released off his 2016 EP titled “;Graffiti On My Heart”;. "Uh-Oh, status quo kan ikke tage alt dette drama. Er jeg ikke den slags snak, du bringe hjem til din mor?"Ian quirps i denne krog lastet hymne for Fritænkeri og uafhængighed. "Blæse det op ligesom en Tomahawk", han fortsætter i den smitsomme kor, "Gør hvad du vil, sige, hvad du ønsker, og være der, du ønsker at være ", Han hyler med en konkret følelse. Songs of empowerment er et populært tema for Erix men han er helt hjemme, uanset om han er at vise en social samvittighed i sange som "hvad der er normalt?", another gripping anthematic track from his sophomore album that questioned current societal norms, eller hvis han afslører en mere satirisk side i melodier som "klinisk ren", hvori han erklærer "Renhed ringe er markedsføring guld" og fortsætter med at levere den kaotiske hook "Disney stjerner er knirkende ren, brusebad med en, og du vil se!!!"In" souvenirs ", Erix tager om emnet skilsmisse fra et barns synspunkt og sarkastisk synger "At have og holde, for rigere, for fattigere, i sygdom og sundhed, till noget er ude af drift, Jeg erklærer jer nu ... .DONE!!!". Ian har ikke noget problem at tackle provokerende spørgsmål som religion, sex and inequality but he also loves to have fun and can certainly live it up as evident in songs like “;Shangri-La "; which was a huge tongue-in-cheek crowd-pleaser at radio and on the live circuit in 2016. I sange som "Grow Down", hans ode til aldrig vokser op, Ians legende personlighed skinner igennem, da han chants "Jeg har ikke brug for at vokse op. Du skal vokse ned "! In “Sex Dance and Rock and Roll” his Top 10 2013 single, we see another side of him altogether when he sings about, godt, hvad der ellers? Køn, dance and rock &; roll!!!

Efter at have skrevet og indspillet en imponerende katalog af sange, Erix is currently working with mulit-platinum producers in the US and Europe to put the final touches on his new full length record. Den seneste materiale opretholder en ungdommelig kant og er udpræget genkendelig som sit eget. Om han udfører sange modne med teen angst, sange, der gør du tror eller sange, der gør du hoppe op og dans, Erix er klart en alsidig og spændende kunstner med et interessant perspektiv og en hel masse at sige. 2018 is expected to see the release of Ian’s long awaited new album via joint ventures with Misfit Mindz Entertainment, and Nordican Music Group under the Sony Music Entertainment banner. Ud over udgivelsen af ​​hans nye plade, the year should also see the launch of “;The Drop ";, en eksklusiv 10 episode series for VEVO TV starring Erix and featuring some of the hottest stars of EDM, popmusik og pop kultur fra de fedeste events rundt om i verden. Segments from the online series will also be seen in micro burst in between programming on MTV networks around the world. Derudover, Ian er også portrættere en animeret figur i en ny video spil skabt af nogle af de samme udviklere, der er involveret i den berømte Guitar Hero franchisen. Musikken baseret spil vil indeholde to nye musikalske spor fra Erix og spillet er forventes at blive frigivet på tværs af platforme til Wii, Xbox og PlayStation spilsystemer.

Efter vender tilbage fra en promo turné i Sydamerika, where he appeared before the largest live crowd of his career in front of 2.5 million mennesker i Rio de Janeiro den nytårsaften, Ian fortalte MTV Brasilien, at han Amped op for en fuldt udbygget global tour og virkelig kløe at få sin nye musik på vej. MTV in several markets has already showcased some of Ian’s upcoming material and early support has also been coming in from some powerful taste-making DJ’s and key influences at radio around the world.

Ian’s music video for “Shangri-La”, a raucous clip filmed in hedonistic Sunny Beach, Bulgaria went live on YouTube and Vevo in limited European markets in 2015 racking up more than two million views to start. The super catchy, venstre for midten melodi er, ifølge Ian, “A crazy-fun party anthem and a reminder not to take life too seriously!” Erix told MTV recently that he wrote the lyrics after living through some terrible personal tragedies. He said, “The song’s a little over the top and maybe even a bit goofy but it helped me a lot to get into a whole other head space when I was writing it. Unfortunately, Jeg lærte på den hårde måde i år, hvor grusom livet kan være, og at det er bare alt for pokkers kort og uforudsigelig, så kommer op med dette koncept om at leve hverdagen ligesom det er en ferie i et vanvittigt utopisk paradis, hvor intet ondt nogensinde sker og noget går, that was a great cathartic escape for me. We could all use a Shangri-La sometimes!” “;Shangri-la has been extremely well received at Top 40 radio in several markets already. An incarnation of the track topped the official charts in Scandinavia peaking at #3 in Finland when it was released on Universal Music in that region.

Following the success of “;Shangri-la”;, Erix skrev, produceret, co-directed and stars in “;Graffiti On My Heart”;, -en 4 del musikvideo film, der er gået forud albummene frigivelse og indeholder flere sange fra LP. The inspirational musical film was quite an ambitious and personal undertaking by Ian. The story-line depicts his life as a youngster as he was persecuted outrageously by abusive family members and townspeople and goes on to feature a reflection on the the tragic homicide of his grandfather and subsequent loss of his father along with Ian’;s battle to overcome these tragedies and fight the small mindedness and hatred he is faced with in order to rise against a repressive society.

Ian toured Europe extensively during the summer of 2015 with stops in 23 cities including a special appearance at Utlra Music Festival in Croatia. He has continued touring since playing 17 dates across UK with famed XFactor boyband Union J in February 2017.

Erix appeared at various events around UAE to promote the single at the end of the year and took part in a pre-show broadcast from the Katy Perry concert in Abu Dhabi on New Year’;s Eve.

Ians nye fuldlængde album, tentatively ttitled “Scream for Freedom”, er fyldt med overbevisende, tankevækkende, gribende og sjove / ofte finurlige melodier. As a proponent for freethinking, selvudfoldelse og have det sjovt, Erix fortsætter med at fremme et budskab om anti-overensstemmelse med sin gruppe af fans kendt som Mutt hær, en blanding af forskellige nationaliteter, religioner, racer, køn, aldre og seksualiteter som forener under deres kærlighed til musik, peace and individuality. Erix’;s upcoming single, ";Tomahawk”; which is featured in the epic finale of “;Graffiti On My Heart”; er en stærk og iørefaldende hymne om at være tro mod dig selv for enhver pris der vil helt sikkert tale til et stort antal unge rundt om i verden.
