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 er kjent med de tidligere arbeidene som først catapulted Erix inn i det internasjonale rampelyset, racked opp over 20 million spiller online og landet ham på flere Top 10 diagrammer på 3 kontinenter vil sikkert kjenne igjen signaturen elementer av hans sound, men de vil også helt sikkert sette pris på den musikalske utviklingen Erix har gjennomgått i ferd med å gjøre sitt heftig etterlengtede ny rekord.

På spørsmål om hans musikalske stil og unike ta på mote, Ian sier "Folk har en tendens til å ha alle typer etiketter for meg, men jeg er bare meg. Jeg er en mutt, Jeg er alt blandet opp!"Erix sang de samme ordene i" Så Scene, Så See Through ", en anthematic antall av 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 frigi sin etterlengtede nye album, tentatively titled “Scream For Freedom”, en rekord sikret full av smittsomme melodier og kroker med overbevisende, tankevekkende og ofte sære tekster. Det nye materialet beviser Erix er en formidabel låtskriver i sin egen rett, og markerer en betydelig vekst 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.

Får sin profesjonelle start i New York som en DJ / MC på usedvanlig ung alder 9, Erix er en consummate utøver, 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 hans tur så langt som et fantastisk eventyr, sannheten er at han har betalt mer enn sin rettferdige andel av kontingent siden hans streiftog inn musikk. Han spøker ofte at hans historie kan leses som manuset til en dårlig såpeopera. 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. Til tross for vanskeligheter og naysayers, Erix continued to work full time as a DJ, hyllet som en av 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. Etter 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. Til tross for å oppfylle sin drøm om å signere disse kontraktene, Erix was met with a continuing series of ambivalent time wasters and dishonest executives who took advantage of him. I tid, a similar tale played out for Erix, om og om igjen, for en eller annen grunn. He was faced with record label bankruptcies, den sjokkerende medikament relatert død av 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 blir slått ned, gjøre det igjen og igjen og igjen "Ian poignantly 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 ta alt dette drama. Jeg er ikke slags snakk du bringe hjem til mamma?"Ian quirps i denne kroken laden sangen for frisinn og uavhengighet. "Blås den opp som en Tomahawk", han fortsetter i den smittende refreng, "Gjør hva du vil, si hva du ønsker og være hvem du ønsker å være ", han hyler med en håndgripelig følelser. Sanger av Selvstendighet er et populært tema for Erix men han er helt hjemme uansett om han viser en sosial samvittighet i sanger som "Hva er normalt?", another gripping anthematic track from his sophomore album that questioned current societal norms, eller hvis han er avslørende en mer satirisk side i låter som «Squeaky Clean", der erklærer han "Purity ringer er markedsføring gull" og fortsetter å levere den opprørsk krok "Disney-stjerner er squeaky ren, dusje med en, og du vil se!!!"I" Souvenirs ", Erix tar på temaet skilsmisse fra et barns synspunkt og sarkastisk synger "Å ha og å holde, for rikere, for dårligere, i sykdom og helse, till noe er ute av drift, Jeg nå uttaler deg ... .DONE!!!". Ian har ikke noe problem å takle provoserende spørsmål 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 sanger som "Grow Down", hans ode til aldri å vokse opp, Ian lekende personlighet skinner gjennom som han chants "Jeg trenger ikke å vokse opp. Du bør 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, vel, hva annet? Kjønn, dance and rock &; roll!!!

Etter å ha skrevet og spilt inn en imponerende katalog av sanger, 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 nyeste materialet opprettholder et ungdommelig kant og er tydelig gjenkjennelig som sin egen. Om han utfører sanger moden med ungdoms angst, sanger som gjør at du tror eller sanger som gjør at du hopper opp og dans, Erix er helt klart et allsidig og spennende artist med et interessant perspektiv og en hel masse å si. 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. I tillegg til utgivelsen av hans nye rekord, 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, pop musikk og populærkultur fra de kuleste hendelser 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. Dess, Ian er også portretterer en animert karakter i en ny video spill laget av noen av de samme utviklerne som er involvert i den berømte Guitar Hero-serien. Musikken basert spill vil inneholde to nye musikalske spor fra Erix og spillet er forventet bli utgitt på tvers av plattformer for Wii, Xbox og PlayStation spillsystemer.

Etter hjemkomsten fra et promo tur til Sør-Amerika, where he appeared before the largest live crowd of his career in front of 2.5 million mennesker i Rio De Janeiro på nyttårsaften, Ian fortalte MTV Brasil at han er Amped opp for en full fledged global tur og virkelig spent på å få sin nye musikk på veien. 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. Den super fengende, venstre for midten tune 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. Han sa, “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. Dessverre, Jeg lærte på den harde måten i år hvor grusom livet kan være, og at det er bare så jævla kort og uforutsigbar så å komme opp med dette konseptet om å leve hver dag som om det er en ferie i en gal utopisk paradis der ikke noe dårlig noen gang skjer og noe går, det var en flott rensende flukt for meg. 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, produsert, co-directed and stars in “;Graffiti On My Heart”;, en 4 del musikkvideo film som har gjort dette før albumene slipp og inneholder flere sanger 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. 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.

Ian nye fullengder, tentatively ttitled “Scream for Freedom”, er lastet med overbevisende, tankevekkende, gripende og morsomme / ofte sære låter. As a proponent for freethinking, selv uttrykk og ha det gøy, Erix fortsetter å fremme et budskap om anti-konformitet til sin gruppe fans kjent som Mutt Army, en blanding av forskjellige nasjonaliteter, religioner, raser, kjønn, aldre og seksualiteter som forener under deres kjærlighet til musikk, peace and individuality. Erix’;s upcoming single, ";Tomahawk”; which is featured in the epic finale of “;Graffiti On My Heart”; er en kraftig og fengende sang om å være tro mot deg selv for enhver pris som sikkert vil snakke til et stort antall unge rundt om i verden.

A dynamic and enthralling performer, Erix is sure to win over a legion of new admirers when his music is introduced to wider audiences this year as he embarks on promotional tours across Japan, Sørøst-Asia, South America and Australia in late spring before a return to the USA and Europe in the summer.
