Steve Aoki is the latest dance music producer to join in on the blockchain-powered art craze after announcing his debut NFT release. NFTs, or non-fungible tokens, are digital collectibles that are unable to be replicated or mutually interchanged. The value of NFTs lies in their singularity, since they are truly unique and belong solely to their owner.
Hosted on the popular Nifty Gateway marketplace, Aoki's foray into the NFT space finds the dance music superstar teaming up with renowned visual artist Antoni Tudisco. Known for his beautifully chaotic releases, Tudisco has provided artwork for a litany of major brands, including Apple, Nike, Adidas, Sony, and BMW, among many others.
Aoki took to Twitter to share a short preview of the new collection of NFTs, teasing the visuals and audio tied to one of the items.
In his announcement, Aoki said that there will be a number of different packs available, including some limited edition offerings. At the time of this article's publication, specific details on what each pack will contain have not been shared, but fans can stay tuned to Nifty Gateway for the eventual release of the product page.
