LOS ANGELES (Dec. 1, 2011) — After wrapping up a bicoastal tour of North America last month, having a self-titled debut EP in the Top 5 on iTunes R&B/Soul charts, a chart-topping follow-up, and averaging thousands of hits a day on their YouTube page, the hard work of trio AZIATIX has finally paid off.
AZIATIX won the Best New Asian Artist – Group award at this year’s Mnet Asian Music Awards held this week in Singapore. The prestigious award is held in reverence through all of Asia and is a true testament to the level of creativity that Flowsik, Eddie Shin, and Nicky Lee have put into their sound.
2011 has been a historical year for AZIATIX. Having just formed as a band a little less than a year ago, the trifecta of talent has been pounding the pavement, winning hearts and growing fans day by day. They won all of Asia, being one of the few bands to break language barriers by rhyming and singing in English. As they make their way back to their homeland, the United States, they come armed with an award that proves their value to music.
Just last month, AZIATIX released an acoustic version of their hit single “Go” (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wcsc6avdFGU) as a special thanks to fans. “Go” marked the moment that would change the group’s lives forever. Now after winning Best New Artist at the MAMAs, who knows what’s in store for 2012. Get ready, America.
