YAM Loves: Eddie

After 2007, he disappeared off the Korean pop map for awhile — presumably to attend to his studies in the States that had gone a bit by the wayside — only to return unexpectedly with another two digital singles in 2009. This time, he returned showing off his English talents by doing the B side of the single completely in English. It also features Japanese singer Kayoco.

Sadly, this was the last thing Eddie released in Korea. But, as long-time fans are already getting excited about, he’s about to debut in a new three member act: Aziatix.

I’m so happy that there is a lot of buzz in the Asian pop culture community over their release coming up on March 28th. The group consists of course, of Eddie, but also includes Nicky Lee and Flowsik. They have Eddie’s songwriting power, the awesome raps of Flowsik, and the production of Jae Chong (producer for JYJ) behind them. I hope that Far East Movement has opened a few doors here in the US for Asian American acts and that they are given a fighting chance at making it. Here is the teaser for Aziatix’s Go.

What I really like about Eddie’s music is that it’s all really timeless. It’s such a classic R&B style without any pretentiousness or momentarily popular beat-styles in it. It’s relaxing and his voice is pure, clear and powerful.

Now that you’ve all gotten to know Eddie a little better, I hope that you take the time (and money) to support him and his new band. Aziatix’s new single is due out March 28th on iTunes, go and support them when it releases. Much love to  E-to-the-double-D-I-E.
