This Week in Music NFTs - April 25
Top stories from Limewire, Catalog, Sound, Warner Music Group and DOOMSDAYX in another jam-packed week of Music NFTs.
Music NFTs are seeing a steady increase in headlines, conversations, artists and collectors diving into web3’s fastest growing sector.
I’m working on a refresh of the Music NFT Landscape, and since it was published in January there are more than 50 new projects being added to the mix.
Behind closed doors, labels are ready to dive in and premier artists are fielding dozens of offers to navigate their web3 strategy.
With Limewire announcing a $10M raise, Catalog releasing custom contracts, Sound crossing 2,000 unique collectors, and Mike Shinoda advising Warner - it’s hard deny something is brewing.
Thus - curation becomes ever more valuable.
Here’s what’s on my radar headed into another big week.
Camoufly - Azure - Sound - 35 Editions - April 26th
Harrison First - The Garden Against The World - Decent - 40 Editions - April 25th
Ben Kessler - Special - Sound - 40 Editions - April 28th
HENO. - First in the Fam - Sound - 40 Editions - April 27th
Artist Spotlight - HENO.
The LA-based rapper is a staple in the Music NFT community as one of the first to drop on both Catalog and Sound.
He’s an active contributor to Zoratopia and is gearing up for his next chapter with his second Sound drop ahead of his next album.
In partnership with Venice, HENO. constantly gives back to the community and is crowdfunding for his next project.
He embodies the spirit and energy that makes the Music NFT community so great, and is one to keep an eye on in the coming months.
