Gbadaa:

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.

Ndị ha na ndị na mbụ ọrụ na mbụ catapulted Erix n'ime mba Chakwasa ihie, egbukwa n'elu 20 nde ejije nke na-online na rutere ya na ọtụtụ Top 10 chaatị dị iche iche na 3 kọntinent ga-aghọta ihe mbinye aka, ndị nke ya ụda ma ha ga-n'ezie ịghọta egwú evolushọn Erix agbanweela na usoro nke na-eme ka ya-eji na-atụ anya ọhụrụ ndekọ.

Mgbe a jụrụ banyere ya egwú style na pụrụ iche ahụ na ejiji, Ian na-ekwu "Ndị mmadụ na-enwekarị nile di iche iche nke aha mmado m ma m na-m. M a mutt, Ana m niile weere elu!"Erix bụrụ abụ ahụ nnọọ okwu na" Ya mere Ọnọdụ, Ya mere Lee Site ", ihe anthematic ọtụtụ o 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 ga hapụ ya ịnụ ọkụ n'obi chere ọhụrụ album, tentatively titled “Scream For Freedom”, a ndekọ chocked jupụtara efe efe abụ olu ụtọ na hooks featuring gbara ọkpụrụkpụ, chere akpali iche na mgbe quirky lyrics. Ọhụrụ ihe onwunwe egosi Erix bụ a egwu songwriter na ya ziri ezi na n'egosi a ịrịba ibu maka ya dị ka onye ọkà n'ise. 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.

Na-ya ọkachamara mmalite na New York dị ka a DJ / Mc na nnọọ obere nke 9, Erix bụ a consummate onye ngosi nwoke, 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. Ezie na Erix na-akọwa ya ịnyịnya dị ugbu a dị ka ihe dị egwu njem, eziokwu ahụ na-enye ụgwọ ihe karịrị ya mma òkè nke ụtụ ebe ọ bụ na ya foray n'ime music. He often jokes that his story reads like the script for a bad soap opera. 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. N'agbanyeghị ihe isi ike na naysayers, Erix continued to work full time as a DJ, lauded dị ka otu n'ime ụwa nke kasị nta, 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. Na-erule afọ 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. N'agbanyeghị na-emezu ya nrọ nke na ịbanye ndị a contracts, Erix was met with a continuing series of ambivalent time wasters and dishonest executives who took advantage of him. Oge na-aga, a similar tale played out for Erix, ugboro ugboro, n'ihi otu ihe ma ọ bụ ọzọ. He was faced with record label bankruptcies, the shocking drug related death of his personal 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.

"Ọ bụrụ na ị na-kụrụ aka ala, -eme ya ugboro ugboro ugboro "Ian poignantly bụrụ na" Tomahawk ", a ferociously catchy tune that was released off his 2016 EP titled “;Graffiti On My Heart”;. "Uh-Oh, the status quo can’t take all of this drama. Am I not the kind of talk you bring home to your mama?"Ian quirps na a nko kwajuru uri otito maka freethinking na onwe. "Fụọnụ ya dị ka a Tomahawk", ọ nọgidere na-na-efe efe okwukwe, "Mee ihe ị chọrọ, -ekwu ihe ị chọrọ na-abụ ndị na ị chọrọ ịbụ ", ọ howls na a gbara ọkpụrụkpụ na-mmetụta. Songs nke ike nkwalite ndị a na-ewu ewu isiokwu maka Erix ma ọ bụ n'ụzọ zuru okè n'ụlọ n'agbanyeghị ma ọ na-egosi a na-elekọta mmadụ akọ na uche na songs dị ka "Nkịtị?", another gripping anthematic track from his sophomore album that questioned current societal norms, ma ọ bụ ọ bụrụ na ọ na-ekpughe a ọzọ satirical n'akụkụ na tunes dị otú ahụ dị ka "Squeaky Clean", na nke ọ na-ekwu "Ọcha yiri mgbaaka na-ahịa gold" na-aga n'ihu na-anapụta riotous nko "Disney kpakpando ndị squeaky ọcha, ịsa ahụ na onye ị ga-ahụ!!!"Na" ihe ncheta ", Erix na-ewe banyere alụkwaghịm a childs si ele ihe anya na sarcastically bụrụ "Iji nwee na jide, n'ihi na ano, n'ihi na daa ogbenye, na ọrịa na ahụ ike, ruo ihe si n'usoro, M ugbu a kpọọ gị ... .DONE!!!". Ian enweghị nsogbu tackling-akpali agụụ mmekọahụ nsogbu dị ka okpukpe, 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. Na songs dị ka "Too Down", ya ode ka dịghị mgbe na-eto eto, Ian na nke igwuri egwu mmadụ-awa site dị ka ọ chants "dịghị m mkpa na-eto eto elu. Ị kwesịrị ị na-eto eto ala "! In “Sex Dance and Rock and Roll” his Top 10 2013 single, we see another side of him altogether when he sings about, ọma, Kedu ihe ọzọ? Mmekọahụ, dance and rock &; mpịakọta!!!

Ebe e dere na dere otu nnukwu katalọgụ nke songs, Erix is currently working with mulit-platinum producers in the US and Europe to put the final touches on his new full length record.

Mgbe alọta a promo njem nke South America, where he appeared before the largest live crowd of his career in front of 2.5 nde mmadụ na Rio De Janeiro on New Year Eve, Ian told MTV Brazil that he is amped up for a full fledged global tour and really itching to get his new music on the road. 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, ekpe nke etiti na-akụ bụ, dị ka 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, M mụtara na ike otú a afọ otú obi ọjọọ ndụ nwere ike ịbụ na na ọ bụ naanị onwe m achọ ịma obere na ejighị n'aka ruo n'ókè wee na-abịa na nke a echiche banyere ndụ kwa ụbọchị dị ka ọ bụ ememe na a crazy utopian paradaịs ebe ihe ọjọọ mgbe eme na ihe ọ bụla na-aga, 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 dere, -emepụta, co-directed and stars in “;Graffiti On My Heart”;, a 4 akụkụ music video film na tupu albums hapụ na e dere ọtụtụ songs si 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. He also hosted the Paradise Int’;l Music Festival with Austin Mahone, Whiz Khalifa and Kanye West in the Phillipines that same year. More recently, Erix performed at the MTV pre-show for Justin Bieber’;s Purpose tour in Mumbai. In the summer of 2017, his latest single “;Footprints In The Sand”; hit #5 on the dance radio charts in Japan in and in December 2017, the song was named the official theme for New Year’;s 2018, in Dubai, UAE. 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.
