There are 2 known 8 Balls. First(as by number of plays on last fm)
Eightball (Premro Smith) and MJG (Marlon Jermaine Goodwin) grew up in the rough Orange Mound area of Memphis and met at Ridgeway Junior High in 1984. They shared a passion for hip-hop, which hadn't yet made a strong impact in the South, and soon formed a partnership. Eightball & MJG may have never made a significant impact nationally during their rise to fame in the 1990s...

As a result of the popularity of its two songs, the band were signed to the Avex Trax label.
As a boy, growing up in a small town, he did what all the kids his age did: go outside and play sports. His dad would always play rock classics and domestic music and subconsciously he thinks this turned him off from music for a long time. He had too much in too short of a time period. It was not until the age of 14 that he expressed interest in music. He really did not know what was out there. The first electronica track he's ever heard was an .S3M (back in the MOD days) by "Purple Motion". He eventually progressed onto Euro Dance, listening to Sash, Scooter, etc.

Anssi's first touch to electronic music was the Pet Shop Boys in the eighties. He is still a fan of their work, and they've probably been the biggest musical influence for him. Also artists like Jarre and Jan Hammer have definitely had an influence on what he is doing now with their 80's instrumental synthesizer tracks.
There are several artists named Aalto. Aalto are two Finnish producers, Miika Eloranta and Paavo Siljamäki. Miika is also known by his alias Super8 and Paavo is known as the alias P.O.S.; he is also a member of Above & Beyond.
