FiXT is proud to announce the roster signing of Rock Metal Djent artist Andromida.
“Labels have always been something I’ve been skeptical of as an independent musician. I’ve heard the horror stories of all the bad deals floating out there in the industry. I knew that if I was ever going to sign with a label, it needed to be a label that truly put their artists first. FiXT is exactly that. I’m excited to be part of the FiXT family and look forward to our future endeavors.” – Ramon Gutierrez, Andromida
Andromida is a one man metal project by composer and producer, Ramon Gutierrez. Diagnosed as legally blind at a young age, Ramon naturally felt a strong connection with music. At the age of 3, he began learning the violin. While learning the violin, it quickly became apparent that he was unable to read sheet music provided by his teachers, but that didn’t stop him. He went on to learn the instrument by ear, eventually playing pieces by composers like Bach at a very young age. At the age of 11, Ramon decided to take on the guitar. Just like the violin, he learned completely by ear, only this time he did not have any help from teachers. Ramon is entirely self-taught on guitar.
Eventually he became fascinated with the idea of writing and producing music. He spent hours upon hours, days upon days, teaching himself how to arrange songs, produce, and mix and master his own music in his late high school years. During his time in college, Ramon began taking steps to start pursuing music professionally. After trying and failing several times to form a band, he eventually decided to take on the endeavor by himself, thus starting Andromida in 2016.
Since 2016, Andromida’s music has reached over 2,000,000 listeners on Spotify as well as amassing over 50,000 social media followers, including 20,000 subscribers to his YouTube channel.
“We’re extremely proud to welcome Andromida to the FiXT roster. He’s already established himself as a tour-de-force instrumental artist and producer, and I can’t wait to see him unlock even more reach with a full album of vocal features and the support of the FiXT team behind him.”– James Rhodes (FiXT Vice President & Co-Founder)
“Really excited to bring Andromida into the FiXT family. His blend of heavy riffs, smashing beats, and retro synths are sure to make many of you new fans if you’re not familiar with him already. Help me welcome Andromida to the FiXT family by giving him a follow and checking out his new track “Conquer” feat. Fight the Fade.” – Klayton (Celldweller, Scandroid, Circle Of Dust, FiXT President & Co-Founder)
The signing kicks off with a brutal rock single “Conquer” (feat. Fight The Fade) the next single to materialize on the FiXT: Radium Compilation. With an aggressive vocal performance from Fight The Fade front man Zene Smith, coupled with provocative lyrics Andromida pushes the dial to one hundred. The track encompasses both brutal and ethereal elements, pushing heavy guitars with syncopated synthesizers. The result is a both an atmospheric single wrapped around a metalcore finish for a savage introduction to FiXT‘s newest signed artist as he explores the human condition.
“I’m always heavily inspired by epic soundtracks and crazy synths, so I really wanted to make a song that pulled from those inspirations while still being a very hooky and catchy song,” explains Andromida. “The end result is something that I think is super unique but still feels familiar. It’s no doubt a catchy metal/rock song, but there are some really unconventional uses of synths here. Several of the guitar riffs actually have synths running through guitar amps replacing certain notes of what was originally written with guitars, giving certain riffs a really cold and robotic feel to them which I think adds so much to the song.”
“Conquer” (feat. Fight The Fade) is available now on all platforms from FiXT.

Celebrates 15 Year Anniversary
“Some of you already know I’ve signed several bad records deals in my career. That prompted me early on to create my own independent label, FiXT. We wondered through the years if we could survive as a label, and here we are 15 years later, with the biggest and best roster, staff and resources we’ve ever had, and there’s a lot more to come.”– Klayton (President & Founder, FiXT)

Independent future rock label FiXT is proud to announce the signing of UK electro-nu-core 6-piece band Seething Akira. The exclusive, multi-album deal includes a deluxe edition re-release of Seething Akira’s explosive debut album Sleepy Skeletor, featuring newly remastered bonus tracks “Firepower” and “Airstrike” along with instrumental versions available for the first time. Seething Akira is also releasing the band’s upcoming full-length album Dysfunctional Wonderland with FiXT this Fall.
“Well, what can we say? Seething Akira have been working tirelessly for almost a decade and quietly waiting for the right home to allow the band to flourish further. We’re absolutely elated this home is now with FiXT. With FiXT’s vision, experience, and global reach we’re thrilled to be part of the family and more determine than ever to deliver Seething Akira’s unique style to more ears than ever before!”– Seething Akira
Explosive. Bombastic. Defiant. Intense. Seething Akira have developed a gloriously turbulent sound that is uniquely their own. Founded by vocalists Charlie Bowes and Kit Conrad, Seething Akira are a 6-piece electronic nu-core band hailing from the seafront city of Portsmouth, UK that have been tearing venues apart across Europe with their powerful fusion of genres since 2012.
The band’s first full-length album, Sleepy Skeletor, dropped in 2018 and made it clear that Seething Akira would be a force to be reckoned with in the years to come. In late 2020, the band launched a series of new singles leading up to their second album, the highly anticipated Dysfunctional Wonderland. With the strength of the band’s music and their popularity with fans rocketing skyward, they connected with electronic rock label FiXT and forged a partnership for their future releases.
Seething Akira has been featured on the Rock Hard Spotify editorial list, while their single “Firepower” landed on Kerrang Radio and Scuzz. “I Am The Devil” and “The Islander” were both featured on BBC Introducing, and “The Islander” premiered on Soundsphere Magazine.
At home and on the road, Seething Akira have also put their stamp on staple festivals such as Bloodstock, Victorious, Camden Rocks, and many more while touring with bands like The Qemists and The Algorithm.
The band’s new album, Dysfunctional Wonderland, is scheduled for an early fall 2021 release followed by a tour to support the new tracks.
FiXT is proud to announce Richy Nix is back with one of the most aggressive tracks of his career on the electrifying new creation, “False Pride.” The track features powerful guitar riffs, ceaseless hard hitting beats, with the searing vocal delivery that Richy Nix has come to be known for, in this dynamic fusion mix of hip-hop and metal.
Canadian rap-rock artist Richy Nix defies convention. Embracing the worlds of hip-hop and metal for nearly 20 years from early self-released albums in the early ‘00s to a major label release with Universal Republic in 2010, Richy has found his home with FiXT, the independent artist owned/operated label from multi-genre pioneer Celldweller. By embracing opposing worlds of genre to the dichotomy of his aggressive tone vs his personal mantra “Love, Loyalty, and Respect”, Richy pulls from opposite directions and builds on a wealth of personal experiences and inspiration with an arsenal of emotional power.
Richy makes it no secret that his rough childhood is direct inspiration for his searing, bombastic fusion of hip hop, electronic, and metal. “I got picked on severely in elementary school the small town kids would call me ghetto for listening to hip-hop and the city kids would call me a hick for listening to rock music. I think that’s why I fuse both genres together, it’s genuine.” His first experience with music was learning to play piano at age five. In his high school days, he met Kannibalistik, a local Windsor rapper, who let him use his keyboard to learn how to play. And thus began his journey of experimenting with producing beats and writing lyrics.
He started off performing horrorcore rap under the name 2iLL which was soon changed to Repulse. Eventually, the final name change was Richy Nix inspired by the novel Killshot by Elmore Leonard. He released his first album entitled No Romance (2003) which was also written and produced solely by him. He also released three mixtapes with other local rappers in Detroit during the same time.
He soon became the #1 unsigned artist in Canada on the Myspace Music charts which led to him getting some attention on major radio station 89X (88.7 FM Detroit/Windsor). He released his 2nd album called Love (2006), which combined all the styles and skills gathered in both the hip hop and rock worlds. He broke the People’s Choice record on 89X with 21 consecutive wins on December 8, 2008. He released Hell City (2009), and Note To Self EP (2010).
His debut album with independent electronic rock label FiXT in 2015, Fearless, mixed by Joey Sturges (Asking Alexandria, The Devil Wears Prada) was a bombastic testament to triumph over adversity. In 2016 FiXT released Nix’s Fear Me Now, a remix EP that highlights the diversity of Richy’ skills with a line-up of raw talent from all walks of life, from the aggro electronic metal of UK EDM sensation Muzz, to the Venezuelan masked-man DJ Zardonic, and an epic synth mix from FiXT alum Josh Money.
Richy Nix has toured nationwide playing shows with Papa Roach, Saving Abel, The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus, Drake, Ke$ha, Paramore, Weezer, MGMT, Bullet For My Valentine, Godsmack, Rise Against, Deftones, Rob Zombie, Limp Bizkit, and others. In 2012 he wrote the official song of the 2012 PGA Tour, “Superstar (Part 2).”
“I believe that we are at war with Evil and I am one of the good guys and I’ll never give up. I make music to uplift others who don’t have a voice.” – Richy Nix
FiXT is proud to announce a partnership with Cyberspline Games, providing a soundtrack of premium in-game songs to the exciting new VR rhythm game BoomBox, along with 100 pre-cleared tracks for community mapping. This is a pioneering relationship between music rights and the gaming studio, allowing gamers to not fear DMCAs and safely and officially enjoy community mapping and competitions.
BoomBox is a rhythmically enhanced VR music experience, available now in early access on Steam, and coming soon to the Oculus and PSVR stores. BoomBox stands alongside established titles like Beat Saber and Synth Riders while contributing its own twists to the genre, providing an evolving game environment built around pounding drums while dodging obstacles. From doubling as a fitness routine or dance-fest to stepping up to challenge the leaderboards, BoomBox is just as focused on casual VR music-rhythm-game fans as it is for level mappers looking to create something to share with the community.
The game currently features 11 official in-game FiXT songs, including tracks from Celldweller, Scandroid, The Algorithm, Essenger, 3FORCE, and others, with more to be added, along with 100 community level tracks available for mappers to take, create and share with other users, without the fear of DMCAs or content-strikes.
Known for empowering the gaming community with Twitch-safe music, YouTube-friendly policies, and a history of building unique music partnerships with game developers through a catalog of 3,000+ tracks across electronic-rock, metal, EDM, synthwave, and synth pop genres, FiXT sees the combination of including in-game songs + officially licensed community level tracks for BoomBox as an evolutionary step to bring together music and gaming fans.
“We were lost while looking for the right music partner: integrating the music into the game is very hard due to DMCAs and the limited experience of music companies working around the game needs. FiXT believed in us, understood, and supported us very professionally, they were there to hold our hand which resulted in such a fantastic music selection for the main gameplay. This is a pioneer collaboration between a game studio and music studio which allows our gamers to create, share and stream officially their own maps based on 100 pre-cleared songs from FiXT. The FiXT style is unique and fits our game very well and we are excited to share their music with BoomBox players.”
– Ekaterina Nosova – CEO, Cyberspline Games
“This partnership perfectly captures the vision of combining music and gaming into an experiential product. We’re proud to working with creative visionaries like Cyberspline and bring a catalog of music available to their customers and community!”
