Musical career

The group formed in 2010, with producer Jae Chong bringing Nicky Lee, Flowsik, and Eddie Shin together (all pursuing their individual careers at the time). [4] Aziatix released their first single "Go" in March 2011 and their self-titled EP "Aziatix" in May 2011.

Following the release of Aziatix's first full-length album Nocturnal in July 2011, the group performed in the U.S. for the first time at the Key Club in Los Angeles.[5] In November 2011, the group returned to the U.S. for their first official tour.[6] During this time, Aziatix also released music videos for their tracks "Go," "Slippin' Away," "A Game," "Be With You (Rock Mix)," and "Cold."

Aziatix released the single and the music video for "Speed of Light" on April 17, 2012.[7] They followed this with the release of a teaser for "Alright" on April 24, 2012.[8]

On May 2, 2012, Aziatix released a new EP album, "Awakening" which debuted on iTunes U.S. R&B/Soul chart at number 1. [9]

In 2013, Aziatix signed a record deal with music label Cash Money Records.

On December 31st, 2014, Aziatix announced their departure from Cash Money Records through their Facebook. The group stated that they made their decision due to the record label's continuous acts of postponing the group's activities and comeback.

On August 25th, 2015, Aziatix announced their disbandment. Their last ever album 'On Top Of The World' was also released, along with a special music video for the title track.
