There are currently over 10 official facebook fan pages encompassing Chile, Australia, Singapore Japan and Korea as well as many more.

We sat down for an interview with all of the members of Aziatix:

Rapper "Flowsik" - Born and raised in Queens, NY, Flowsik is no stranger in the local underground hip-hop scene. His talents are recognized by many in the circle including hip-hop pioneer Ice-T whom he recorded the song "Hate" together with. Flowsik started composing when he was 15 and has always looked up to some of the greatest in rap music like Tupac to search for inspiration.

Eddie Shin - Born in Boston, MA, Eddie's family moved to Korea when he was 10 years old. Most of his writing style is based on R&B, mixing it up with his unique experiences performing in Asia. Eddie has been writing songs since the age of 16. He made his debut in Korea with his self produced album, "Just My Way," which became a hit in the local Korean music scene in 2005.

Nicky Lee - Hailing from Los Angeles, CA, Nicky is recognized as an accomplished R&B/Soul Mandarin male vocalist with five solo albums released. After years in the Asian music industry, Nicky earned the title of "Best Male Artist" at the Golden Melody Awards in 2007, in the Mandarin speaking market of billions. His songs have been used in the movie "Forbidden Kingdom" that starred international actors Jackie Chan and Jet Li. Nicky is also developing his acting career and appeared in the movie "Mulan."

Jae Chong - producer of the group, also born and raised in Los Angeles, hit stardom early in his life joining the R&B group, "Solid," selling over three million albums and staking claim to be the first Korean R&B group to ever sell over 1 million albums. Since "Solid," Jae has been producing hit after hit, album after album (with over 20 million sold), TV and film score after another, penning his music and beats all througout Asia. Jae has been nominated for Best Producer of the Year at Asia's Golden Melody Awards, spanning an international market size of over four times the Grammys.

1.   You've each had tremendous success as solo artists and now even more success as a group. How did you develop the chemistry to make that transition?
 

Because each of us has our own music style, we were able to blend all three together to form a unique sound. Nicky's R&B/Soul sound, Flowsik's hip-hop sound along with Eddie's R&B/Pop sound formulated into something great, thus creating Aziatix.
