Hip-hop­pers seek al­bum sup­port

Macclesfield Express - - FRONT PAGE -

A HIP-HOP duo have launched a cam­paign to re­lease their al­bum on CD.

Rap­per Chris Leese 30, and singer Oli Frost, 28, have recorded Big Shots – but need some help get­ting the record pressed.

They also want to fund mu­sic videos to pro­mote their art.

The duo from Mac­cles­field are hop­ing to raise £1,000 to fund the pro­ject.

If you do­nate £1 will get you an MP3 of one track from the al­bum, £4 gets you an MP3 of the al­bum, whereas £600 gets you a signed al­bum, T-shirt and pri­vate show in your liv­ing room.

The 11-track al­bum, pro­duced by Pho­cus, will be re­leased on iTunes on June 13.

Chris and Oli met at Marl­bor­ough Pri­mary School and re­con­nected re­cently to start work­ing on some tracks.

Chris said: “The al­bum is a lot of fun, with in­tri­cate lyrics, catchy hooks, and bang­ing beats.

“But there are some emo­tional tracks on it that re­flect our lives – I just be­came a dad re­cently, and Oli lost his mum.

“If you like what you hear and be­lieve in the pro­ject then please pledge.”
