Ian Erix – ‘Shangri-La’

Ian Erix1Ian Erix was a child prodigy DJ, earning his stripes at the tender age of nine in his hometown of New York. He had a major breakthrough in 2012 when he performed in front of 2.5 million people onstage at a live New Years Eve show in Brazil with David Guetta.

Erix combines modern dance beats and synth elements with tastes of punk guitars, quirky lyrics and a left of centre in-your-face attitude to create catchy and compelling pop. Written by Ian Erix and produced by Erik Nyholm in Finland, Shangri-La is a boppy, fun-loving pop tune, a version of which was recorded in 2014 by Scandinavian boy band TCT where it was a Top 3 hit.

Now signed to US label, Ultra, Ian had a major career breakthrough in 2o12, when he appeared on stage in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil at a live New Years Eve show with David Guetta in front of more than 2.5 million people on Copacabana Beach. In 2014, Erix traveled to Sweden to write and record material for his forthcoming album, which is due for release in late 2015. Ian has either written or co-written every track.

“Shangri-La” will be released on July 10. For more information, visit Ian’s website, Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, and Instagram.
