The American DJ and music producer Steve Aoki will do an NFT art drop on Nifty Gateway in collaboration with 3D artist Antoni Tudisco. The sale will open on Sunday March 7th and 2PM ET or 7PM UTC. There will be limited edition packs and open editions.
Aoki is one of many DJs making their moves into the NFT space. Next week RAC will also drop some art on Makersplace, while Deadmau5 and 3LAU have been active with crypto art as well. Aoki will be in good company.
In general there’s a new trend in the NFT space, where music is playing an important role. First these digital artwork were all about animations, but now music is becoming the new layer. In some cases even the biggest creative push of an NFT, like with Euler Beats. In the case of Steve Aoki we’re talking about NFT art that combines music and visuals.
The popularity of NFTs is attracting all kinds of opportunists. Today Kings of Leon will sell a new album as an NFT, and in addition they will auction golden tickets for lifetime front row seats at all their tours. Oh yes, and Post Malone has an NFT for a beer pong competition. That happened.
Music NFTs on the rise
As mainstream media and celebrities pay more attention to the blockchain market and NFTs, we are finally seeing developments in the audio space. Music NFTs are slowly becoming a real thing. NFT pioneers like ConnieDigital have been combining various art forms in their NFTs, including music.
Last month Euler Beats made a major splash into the blockchain community, introducing on-chain generated music and art into one single NFT. At the same time Gala Games is planning to let their community create and sell in-game music for the upcoming online game Mirandus.
