About this project

So as you saw from that amazingly entertaining video we are looking to approach the production of this album in a completely new way and that includes having you involved.

(Left) CHIKANO, (Right) Granddad Woolly

I myself (Granddad Woolly) have spent the last 10 years perfecting my craft as well as my ability to release my music, my way and mostly on my own and the same goes for CHIKANO. In the past it has served us well but we've found in ourselves a need to expand and progress without all the means to do so and that's where you come in.

We finally got the ball rolling on our collaborating in 2015 with our EP entitled "EXPRMNTS I-VI" and have received positive reviews, downloads and sales (Here's a music video, stream of the project and a review to watch)

UPDATE: We have just released a new promotional music video called "R.T.B. 1" and more promotional songs/videos are planned to drop until we reach our goal.  

 

 

 

So we know we're on the right track with this upcoming full length album.

This new album is already in production as we speak (Woo!!!). What we need from you is assistance on how the album will be mastered, manufactured, distributed and marketed to ensure as many people know about and have access to this album. 

Myself and CHIKANO are two individuals who pride ourselves in our work, this culture and giving our listeners the best that we can offer and we want that to be represented in the way we present it to the world. 

If we reach our goal of $5,000 or more then we will have the ability to present our project in a very awesome way. 

First, it would be used to get the album mastered by the one and only Dave Cooley of Elysian Masters in Los Angeles. 

He is responsible for mastering some of Hip Hop's most prominent albums of the last couple of decades such as J Dilla - Donuts, Adrian Younge & Ghostface Killah - Twelve Reasons To Die, Freddie Gibbs & Madlib - Pinata and Madvillain - Madvillainy.

He is more than willing to add Kanodadda: EXPRMNT VII to that catalog and to say our album was mastered by the same man who did classics such as these would be an achievement in itself. 

The funds would next go to the manufacturing of Vinyl, CD's, Cassettes, and other merchandise. 

CD's will be done by Granddad Woolly's long-time manufacturer, Atomic Disc in Salem, Oregon.

Vinyl will be done by both Atomic Disc and Cascade Record Pressing in Oregon. 

Here is a mock-up of what the Vinyl/CD design would look like.

The cassettes will be manufactured by Cryptic Carousel, the same manufacturer that created the cassettes for Granddad Woolly's very prominent project The Vanilla Tape.

Funds will also cover the cost of full digital digital distribution to all major retailers and streaming services (ITunes, Apple Music, Spotify, Tidal etc.) as well as online marketing and promotion via various social media outlets and websites. 

If we reach our goal then our backers will of course benefit from the results first with exclusive rewards that we ourselves don't think are too shabby. All of our great rewards are located on the right of this page are guaranteed to be fulfilled if we reach our goal. And it's of course a way for us to show our appreciation for your support. 

In a nutshell, we're creating an amazing hip hop album that we want to be seen and heard by as many people in this world as we possibly can. By you becoming a backer for Kanodadda: EXPRMNT VII you'll not only be funding a great album but also be apart of and help solidify a 7 year long journey. 

And last but certainly not least this album is going to be dedicated to my father and CHIKANO's mother both of whom have passed. 

So c'mon....back us up...it'll be fun....and dope...and very hip hop of you.

Sincerely,

CHIKANO & Granddad Woolly 

 

Risks and challenges

Luckily we have almost no risks when it comes to the creation process of the album with CHIKANO being the producer and Granddad Woolly being the MC (Unless of course CHIKANO forgets how to make beats or I forget how to write songs which neither would ever happen). The album is already in the final stages of recording and mixing. The main challenge and risk will be in the post production phase and meeting our release deadline with all of the necessary parts completed on the mastering, manufacturing, marketing and distribution side. If we reach our goal within the 30 days then we should have no problems or challenges with that process.
