Chris Liebing Releases NFT Collection in Collaboration With Mute and EDMjunkies 

Today, Chris Liebing dropped his first NFT collection in collaboration with Mute Records and EDMjunkies.

The collection expands on Liebing’s most recent album, Another Day, offering both Platinum and Gold editions, with the former available as a one-of-one and the latter available in an edition of three. Both editions will grant owners access to an exclusive visual version of the album, created by Edith and Anna Bergfors from StudioBergfors—the Platinum edition will feature a 4k download, and the Gold an HD version—plus a download and vinyl copy of the LP. The owner of the Platinum Edition will also have guestlist for life to any of Liebing’s shows, as long as they are the owner of the NFT; the Gold owners, on the other hand, will have guestlist for one year to any of his shows.

The NFTs are minted on the Polygon blockchain and available to buy on OpenSea. Payments can be made in ETH, xDAI, and USDC tokens on the Polygon chain, and you can find instructions on how this works here.

Mark de Clive-Lowe Launches $BUYBACK to Buy Back Seven of His Albums From Labels

Mark de Clive-Lowe has launched $BUYBACK, a crowdfund to buy back the rights to seven of his albums.

Launched on Tuesday, January 18, the crowdfund has already raised 8.55 ETH ($23,800 at the time of writing), which is just shy of the 12 ETH goal. The $BUYBACK campaign offers three NFT tiers for the funding: Platinum, Gold, and Silver. Platinum is available in an edition of 10 for 1 ETH each and offers the buyers 1000 $BUYBACK tokens; Gold is available in an edition of 20 for 0.5 ETH and offers 500 $BUYBACK tokens; and finally, Silver is available in an edition of 50 for 0.1 ETH and offers 100 $BUYBACK tokens. 

All $BUYBACK token holders will be founding members and have governance and voting rights to the as-yet-to-be-launched Mashibeats (DAO), a creator and collector community. They will also have access to gated $BUYBACK channels, online events, IRL events, exclusive access to works-in-progress, and more. Token holders will also have ​​voting rights on “future potential exploitations and reimagining of the catalog as well as new projects and proposals.”

The campaign also rewards the top three funders with lifetime VIP access to all future live shows, plus limited edition NFTs, and more.

EDMjunkies’s Music NFT Picks, Featuring Jack Callahan, Nayiem, Mihai Pol, and More

We’ve compiled a selection of our favorite music NFT releases from the last couple of weeks, detailed below.

Nina continues an intriguing flow of releases, including “brightlightsbigcity,” a euphoric breakbeat groover from nautiluss; Chicklette’s inventive garage pop; a fascinating 30-minute live piano performance of Kerri Chandler chords by Jack Callahan; an equally stunning and haunting vocal performance by Rubie, recorded at the Swiss Church London; and engrossing ambient excerpts by Nayiem.

On Catalog you’ll find hypercolor beat science by cumulus frisbee; bent and volatile punk electronics with frayed 808s from Stuff; and Gavin Gamboa’s mind-melting rework of his father’s early work from the 1980s.

Pianity, which has become the unofficial home of minimally inclined artists exploring NFTs, has new music from Mihai Pol and Guti, with the former delivering a typically deep and rolling dancefloor cut, and the latter a trippy percussion workout.
