He’s mates with Lily Allen and Him out of The Streets, but now Professor Green wants to give YOU a signed gold disc. All he asks in return is that you remix his new single using an iPhone app called Fireplayer.
It’s free, although you’ll have to pay £1.79 within the app for the Monster download, which you can then remix using the in-app controls. Green’s label EMI is working with The Sun to allow users to upload their remixes to the latter’s site, for other people to listen to.
At the end of this week, the Prof will choose his favourite and dish out the disc. “I’m very excited that fans are able to not only listen to but also play around with my music through the Fireplayer platform,” says the rapper. “To be able to offer the fans a chance to really get involved with my music and my career is amazing.”
Fireplayer is well worth a look, actually. Besides Professor Green, there are downloads available from the likes of Tinie Tempah, Taio Cruz, the Jackson 5 and, er, Go West – all available for you to remix. The developer behind Fireplayer says it’s working on Android and Symbian versions of the app too.
