Pearz. An up and coming young DJ. The 19 year old Chindian (Chinese and Indian) male, born in Surrey, England, raised in the might West Auckland, New Zealand, is a gunning kid ready to make things happen in the music world. Most people would know him as Ezra Philip but after re-arranging his name and initials, he selected a name as delicious as the fruit.
Brought up listening to the classic two guitars, a bass, a drummer and a vocalist type of music people would class as rock or metal, Ezra is heavily influenced by these genres, he loves the sound of a shredding guitar, the booming roll of double kicks, and the mixture of heavy growls and high pitched melodious vocals. He has been a part of many bands in his teens and is currently the Lead Vocalist and Co-Founder of his hardcore band, Onwards We March. He originally started by playing guitar when he was 12 and then at the age of 14 changed to bass guitar. Over the years he developed his musical abilities and tuned his ears into the mix. He only started focusing more on vocals when he was 18 and is now trying to push his musical horizons with DJing and Electronic Music Production.
Whilst under the alias of “Pearz.” Ezra plays mainly House-Electro and Progressive House music. On a special occasion he will play a few Dubstep or Drum 'n' Bass tunes to mix it up. His Electronic music influence comes from the House scene as he loves everything from Dirty Dutch to Deep House and often plays a lot of this music. The names of Laidback Luke, Hardwell, Tiesto, Avicii, Steve Aoki, Wolfgang Gartner, Swedish House Mafia, Alesso and Afrojack all fall into his large repertoire of house music.
He has barely been on the scene and has only been a part of one major party, playing at his friend’s factory party in Sandringham, Auckland. That night he received a lot of good feedback and felt awesome performing for his friends. He described it as a sensation that he'd never experience anywhere else or doing anything else.
He may be young, full of life, and sometimes a little bit foolish. But being a part of the MAINZ DJEMP class of 2012 he has developed musical and life skills that will prove to anyone and everyone who doubted him that he is an awesome dude and will rock your socks off!!
