We’ve written before about electronic music stars creating their own web3-driven communities: RAC most prominently. Now Armin van Buuren is giving it a go. He has launched an ‘Armin’s All-Access‘ community (AAA for short) with a drop of NFTs that will give fans access to AAA, with promised perks including previews of unreleased music and exclusive DJ sets and merch. 2,500 of the NFTs will be sold for $199 apiece.
Meanwhile, OneOf’s latest NFT drop is for one of the biggest rock bands in history: Led Zeppelin. It’s based on photos taken of them in 1969, but the NFTs will also include a physical element: original tickets from a planned concert in 1980 that was cancelled when drummer John Bonham died. The NFTs are being sold in platinum ($199) and diamond ($399) editions.
Finally, two web3 music firms, Hume and Blocktones, have held a songwriting camp in Miami Beach. It showcased their ideas for getting musicians to earn money from releasing beats via Blocktones’ platform. Hume, meanwhile, is the company that recently raised $11.7m of funding to create more of its virtual-artist ‘metastars’.
