London, United Kingdom, 21 March 2022:
Music-based NFT marketplace Token||Traxx has made another significant pact in its quest to revolutionise the music industry.
OpenLab, itself an innovative music and arts platform which is famed for discovering new artists, has agreed a six-figure deal and terms with Token||Traxx as part of a cross-platform marketing and content development play. “As a platform focussed on curating the very best emerging artists, we are incredibly excited to be working with Token||Traxx to build out opportunitiesfor our creative community in the creation and distribution of next generation collectibles. The Token||Traxx team have a wealth of real and virtual world music experience, and their aligned vision for building opportunity for artists through new formats and models make them the perfect partner for OpenLab as we develop towards Web3,” said Quentin Chambers, Managing Director of OpenLab.
For their first NFT drop, OpenLab will offer a VIP Pass to their international community, which acts as a digital membership program, existing fully on the blockchain. Shortly after they plan to open a curated space on Token||Traxx to showcase their artists and their NFT collections. Alongside its music output, OpenLab has recently partnered with emerging visual talent, releasing collections of limited-edition art prints. Through the partnership with Token||Traxx, OpenLab will extend these editions to include NFT collectables, with collaborations between audio and visual artists.
“It’s a massive coup for us here at Token||Traxx,” enthused Tim Gentry, Chief Operating Officer and co-founder of Token||Traxx. “OpenLab is a bonafide tastemaker supporting next year’s breakthrough artists with their first airplay and features. OpenLab discovered Arlo Parks when she had just 130 followers on Spotify, and have championed the likes of Squid, GreenTea Peng and Overmono from their first releases, so the ability to bring talent to us as well as their superb access to high-quality visual art and cutting edge music is what excites us.”
Tying together the partnership, Token||Traxx will develop their own unique content on OpenLab’s radio shows as well as experiences at their events, exhibitions, concerts & festivals. “I’ve been listening to OpenLab since the late, great Robert Milesfounded it,” added Token||Traxx co-founder TommyD. “They are the epitome of perfect curation and my absolute go-to choice for music discovery and straight up entertainment, bringing a little bit of Ibiza diversity and inclusion into the grey. OpenLab hold a position in Ibiza which is at the very heart of a loyal influential community in a significant music scene. “Couple this with their brilliant natural marriage of music and art, OpenLab sum up how to wrap value around all creativity, which compliments my concept of Token||Traxx perfectly. I’m absolutely honoured that Quentin
and the team have partnered with us,” summarised TommyD.
