Tech N9ne’s long awaited KLUSTERFUK EP will mark the first release from the Kansas City King in 2012, but more importantly, the EP will also mark the first Tech N9ne project to be entirely produced by a band. Strange Music’s resident group of Miami maniacs, ¡MAYDAY!, has taken the helm on the EP with exclusive production. With the release of “Blur” featuring ¡MAYDAY!’s Wrekonize, it became abundantly clear that Tech N9ne was once again opening the doors to a new chapter in his legacy.

There was nothing ordinary about 2011 for Tech N9ne. The year that gave him a top Billboard selling album in All 6′s And 7′s also opened him up to the mainstream thanks to his appearance on Lil Wayne’s Tha Carter IV. While other artists may have taken the time to bask in the glory, Tech celebrated by hitting the booth for a fourth Collabos album, Welcome To Strangeland. With three separate tours, two albums, and a show stealing spot on Wayne’s double platinum release, Tech N9ne had plenty to boast about this past year – and boast he did.
