DJs Steve Aoki, 3LAU release first single as ‘Punx’ NFT Duo

DJs Steve Aoki, 3LAU release first single as ‘Punx’ NFT Duo

Steve Aoki and Justin “3LAU” Blau, two electronic artists, have released their first song as the CryptoPunks-inspired duo Punx. “Concentrate,” which comes out this Friday, was inspired by how the CryptoPunks became one of the first well-known NFT groups.

Blau said that “We really wanted the first song to sort of embody the spirit of what CryptoPunks represent—underground, kind of the first of their kind, and more particularly techie, tech-driven, [and] futuristic.”

It is clear that “Concentrate” looks into these ideas. It’s a little over 3 minutes of fast-paced electronic music with an industrial edge that would be good for a fair or a nightclub.

But this isn’t a typical single release. To help the collectors and spread ownership of the song, Punx will give half of all profits from “Concentrate” to 99 NFT collectors. These collectors will be picked from people who own Blau’s NFT, Aoki’s A0k1verse Passport NFT, and CryptoPunks NFT.

Given that Blau is also the co-founder and CEO of the Web3 music rights platform Royal, whose goal is to give music fans a way to support their favorite artists by giving them a part of a song’s royalties, this move makes sense for this combination. Once they are made, the 99 NFTs of “Concentrate” can be traded on Royal.

Blau talked about the thing they had in common that made them Punx. Both Blau and Aoki have moved around the Web3 world more than once.
Blau said this about Aoki and NFTs: Even though Steve’s touring around the world, he still shares an incredible passion for this technology. He was actually one of the first DJs to ever actually listen to me when I was ranting about it back in the day. He was the only one who really got it because he’s already a collector of all other types of things.”
