    to be honest it was everybody move and i heard it playing midnight club los angeles. this was in 2009 when killer had already been released a year ago lol. i then looked up tech on youtube and got more and more hooked. second song was like yeah and it got me even more hyped. i was like WOW what garbage have i been listening to until now? i mean tech is uncomparable hes just on a whole different level. i now know pretty much every song tech has put out since the late 90s and also a lot of his feature appearances.
