Mize’s Creative Journey
Ian Evans started producing music in 2012. For the first several years into his project, he went by the alias ‘ianqt.’ Eventually, he changed his name to Mize to memorialize his grandmother’s last name.
Mize discovered his signature style by pushing the boundaries of electronic music and experimenting with sound designs. He was inspired by genre-defying artists such as Tipper and Netsky. Mize spent years mastering his craft, developing a sound that combines psychedelic downtempo and melodic dubstep with hip-hop influences.
In 2020, Mize debuted with WAKAAN when he released his single and follow-up EP titled ‘Thought Process.’ In February 2021, he released ‘Satori,’ a collaborative single with Super Future. This was the first single released on Liquid Stranger’s new downtempo label, SSKWAN. Now, Mize is returning to SSKWAN with his EP, Balancing Act. A testament to Mize’s ever-growing talent, this EP demonstrates his potential to become a top artist in electronic music.
“Balancing Act is both a call back to some of the sounds and places that made this project come together in the beginning as well as a foreshadow of the new ideas, techniques, and themes I’ve been diving into as of late. Constantly as I grow older I notice that many aspects of my life are endless periods of balancing many things whether they be relationships, work, leisure, time, and even things as simple as taking care of your own body. I find that sometimes being an artist can be a Balancing Act of adopting new ideas while also attempting to keep the essence of what brought me here alive.” —MIZE
