Good day to you! I’m Professor Elemental, multi-award winning Steam Powered Hip Hop emcee and all round entertainer. I’m known for ridiculous videos like this and this, astonishing live shows, a series of acclaimed albums and loads of wonderful comics, games and toys.
As a mad professor living in a tumbledown mansion somewhere in Sussex, it’s only right that I should have an orangutan butler named Geoffrey. Sadly, two albums ago, Geoffrey stole my time travel trousers and got lost in space and time. Now, it’s up to me to track him down. Can I find Geoffrey before it’s too late? And who is going to help me on my strangest and most exciting adventure yet? Find out in this unique Hip Hop album…
One of the best things about being Professor Elemental is the joy of collaborating. Creative team-ups with producers, writers, artists, musicians and fans are at the very heart of what makes the Professor special.
It’s my aim to create an album which tells a story and showcases the work of some incredible artists. Not only that, but if we smash our target… we will also get our finest music video yet, a glorious comic and much more!
The album and associated works will be suitable for all ages and will help shine a light on some astounding talents from the world of Steampunk, Art, Independent Comics, Folk Music and Underground Hip Hop. You can find details about our collaborators below, with more surprise guests to be announced as the campaign continues!
Join us as we travel through space and time, meeting the most weird and wonderful folk imaginable, facing terrible dangers and glorious triumphs, with the hope that we’ll somehow make it back in time for tea! We proudly present…

WHY SHOULD I GET INVOLVED?
First and foremost, your donations will ensure that this project gets made. Producing albums, comics and music videos costs money, particularly if you want them to be of the highest quality. After the initial costs of manufacturing the products is paid for, any additional funds will be split between contributors. You can have the warm, cosy glow of knowing that your money has gone directly to making good art possible. The more money we make, the more money we will be able to pay everyone for their contributions and the better the final products will be.
There are plenty more reasons of course, and you can read them to the right hand side of this page. Not only can you pre-order the album itself, but there are some astounding prizes of all kinds up for grabs; bespoke toys, exclusive merch, new products, signed scripts, bespoke music and more! You can even get your own creation included in the Professor’s world.
This event will run for the month of September. We will then take October to get it manufactured and it will be delivered a month afterwards on the 9th of November (with a launch party in Leeds on the 12th and a stand at the Thought Bubble convention on the 14th).
