Some believe that music NFTs—unique digital assets having both musical and visual components—are the future of the music industry, creating new opportunities for artists and fans. Nevertheless, DJ Agoria, a prominent French electronic producer, composer, and DJ, is unconvinced.
“Since the beginning, I was saying that I don’t trust in music NFTs, even if I’m a DJ, an artist, and a musician. We don’t want to make music NFTs mainstream, we want music NFTs to be rare, and the fact that we develop things that people desire or fight to get, excites me more,” DJ Agoria said.
It is about growing beyond platforms such as Spotify, where “you may have any type of music at any time” for ten dollars.
DJ Agoria began his career in the 1990s, a time when raves were a common sight at venues across Europe. These parties continue to this day, prompting him to “really believe in the need and desire to strive for something better.”

DJ Agoria, who is highly involved in generative art (the process of creating new ideas, forms, shapes, or colors using algorithms), is also curious about the capabilities of artificial intelligence.
He said, “We are educating a new move, a new generation of people and I think it’s very promising. We are just at the beginning and I strongly believe that there will be something very interesting in the future.”
DJ Agoria said that “We’re teaching a new generation of people a new dance move, and I believe it’s incredibly exciting.” I am convinced that something extremely intriguing will emerge in the future, as we have just begun.
In addition, he has some advice for those who are still skeptical, stating that the most important thing is not to come here for the money since “you will surely lose.”
DJ Agoria remarked, “We are not here for the money, we are here as artists to find and develop new ideas that were not possible in Web2. That’s what is exciting: using Web3 and blockchain technologies to do things we couldn’t do before.”
