Techno 8

Techno 8 was born in the City of Winston-Salem. As a child Willie was very much into the arts, mainly dance, and music. At the age of 7, he found himself in tune with some of the greatest musicians and entertainers that ever lived such as Michael Jackson, James Brown, Prince, and a dash of the Temptations. Fast forward, to November, 9 2019 With his first ever release, of New Gen which would debut on Spotify. Techno knew what he wanted, something simple but catchy. As he quoted, “have people bobbing their heads, and tapping their foot, That’s what I looked for.” The Catchy Rhythm, and abnormal melody of the piano did just that. Techno 8 has continued to make a name for himself in his category of EDM, House, and Electro music.

Dude from San Diego, California making raps in my shed. I try to keep everything in my music truthful. Occasionally you will find a heavy bass beat in my music. This does not entail that the song must be about "gangster" activities. If you find these bassy tunes, my lyrics are most likely about why other dudes like me should refrain from talking about such activities. On the other hand, a lot of my music is me telling myself to work harder in life to make myself happy. I felt other people could maybe use the pep talk too.
