Aziatix Exclusive Interview
1. There are a lot of new fans that are still trying to learn more about you guys. How did the group Aziatix form and how did you come up with the name?
Nicky: We all met thru Jae Chong.Â I had just finished my 5th mandarin album n Flowsik was in Korea doing some tracks w/Jae. Jae asked me to sing the hook and the song came out “Fire”…I met Eddie few months down the line and there was a song that all three of us got on which came out crazy….one song led to two…two led to three…which led to our “Nocturnal” album…
Eddie: I met Jae Chong and Nicky Lee through Flowsik. We actually knew each other from playing basketball. First track we did was “Another Day” and from there I knew I wanted to work with these guys. AZIATIX was a name thought up by our producer Jae Chong and we thought it was perfect because we’re all Asian American.
Flowsik:Â After working on JYJâ€™s â€œThe Beginningâ€ album with big brother Jae Chong, weâ€™ve realized that our chemistry is awesome, so we are always working on music.Â Then weâ€™ve realized that Aziatix as a whole is just an awesome sound with different elements of music combined in one.
2. Who are some of your top favorite artists you respect and look up to?
Nicky: Stevie Wonder, Brian Mcknight, Michael Jackson too many to name all…
Eddie: Babyface, Eric Benet, Marvin Gaye, James Brown…
Flowsik:Â So many, but for starters, Jay-Z, Nas, Tupac, Usher, Neyo, etc.
3. What do you do when you get writerâ€™s block and canâ€™t come up with new lyrics?
Nicky: Music should never be forced out…it should come naturally…maybe ill go watch a movie…hang out w/the guys…just gotta chill and relax
Eddie: Do something totally unrelated to making music.
Flowsik: I concur with big bro Nicky.Â Itâ€™s a natural process.Â Environment and experiences play a huge roll in the inspiration process.
4. When youâ€™re not making music, what are some hobbies or things you like to do for fun?
Eddie: Basketball, jog.
Flowsik:Â Catching up with friends and family, and trying new dishes.
Nicky: Almost all of our promotion has been through the internet and word of mouth…we communicate w/ our fans through Facebook…twitter…blogs…10yrs ago that was just impossible…Now as soon as we make music we can get to the fans w/just the click of the mouse…
Flowsik:Â The internet is one of the best discoveries ever made, haha.Â We are connected worldwide with fans, and they can get a chance to know us better as artists and more on a personal level as well.
6. If you can turn back time to relive one special moment over again, what would it be?
Nicky: The 9 months that I livedÂ in my mama’s womb….because I donâ€™t remember any of it….haha
Eddie: High school senior year second semester! All my friends were busy partying it up and I was busy working on my debut album!
Flowsik:Â When i was 5, just being with family and performing songs in front of family and friends.
Nicky: Be at two places at once…So I can spend more time w/my family
Eddie: Stop time. So i can sleep as much as I can and never be tired.
Flowsik:Â Teleportation, so I can save money on transportation, and touring would be so easy.Â Just like Jumper.
