Interview with Tech N9ne

Tech N9ne has arrived on our shores to start his tour kicking off at 170 Russell in Melbourne this Wednesday.

Casper spoke to the man himself about what to expect!


Attention all Techniciansss: Hip-Hop Powerhouse TECH N9NE returns to Australia + New Zealand this September after selling out shows in Sydney, Melbourne, and Perth in past tours. The announcement comes with a stern warning for fans: TECH is hungrier than ever before.

TECH N9NE’s live shows are not for the faint of heart. With the crowd hanging onto his every movement, TECH masterfully guides them through the evening of sonic chaos, feeding off the madness unleashing before his very eyes. His shows are a non-stop party from beginning to end. The atmosphere and energy at a TECH N9NE show is unlike anything else. No one puts on a show like TECH N9NE.

TECH returns to our shores holding up high his latest record, 2018’s Planet. The album is a shining beacon at TECH’s status as an untouchable in the scene, scoring high profile collaborations, including Machine Gun Kelly and Y2 on the mosh anthem No Reason, while proving his mettle, yet again, on his own, as we see with fan-favorite single Don’t Nobody Want One.

As the biggest selling Independent Hip-Hop artist of all time, TECH N9NE has had his music featured in film, television, and video games. Independent to the core, TECH N9NE is free to make music for himself and his fans and no one else. He appeases no masters other than the legions of Strange Music fans across the globe.

‘’Tech N9ne can control the crowd like only a true master can’’ – Music Feeds

Without mainstream acceptance, TECH N9NE’s commercial success is entirely down to his dedication to his audience, playing at least over 100 shows a year and making sure every show leaves the crowd on a euphoric high and craving more. Seeing TECH N9NE live will make you understand his t-shirt slogan “Strange Music Saved My Life”.

‘’one of the most unique and intriguing rappers in history’’ – The AU Review

TECH N9NE’s 2018 Australian tour will feature long-time partner in rhyme KRIZZ KALIKO, who will be both performing with TECH N9NE and a feature support set. KRIZZ KALIKO has been working with TECH N9NE since the late 90’s. KRIZZ KALIKO’s infectious charisma and dynamic vocal range have made him a fan favourite at TECH N9NE’s live shows for over a decade.

“I’ve got a chip on my shoulder,” TECH N9NE says. “I’ve still got a lot to prove. That’s why I still rap so hard. I’m always trying to get better and better. I’m not softening it.” If you missed out last time, now is your chance to fix your mistake. If you were lucky enough to catch one of the shows, this is another opportunity to witness one of the greatest live shows in Hip-Hop. Bar none.
