We are not often surprised by an artist when they make a radical move, but this one piqued our interest. Today we are checking out PLS&TY and his latest venture, a limited edition vinyl version of Very Special courtesy of Foundation. PLS&TY is constantly striving for success in the modern bass music scene, developing his new languid bass style to completely flip the modern industry on its head. PLS&TY has had plenty of success after signing with Universal Music Group, PLS&TY’s “Good Vibes” rocketed him to the top of the charts, reaching #1 in multiple countries. He has even taken the world of television into his hands, with multiple remixes appearing on multiple series. His own remix of Genevieve’s “Colors” was featured in a Hershey’s chocolate commercial and snagged a cool billion views. He even dropped the new Very Special EP back in April that features tracks with artists like Sean Kingston, Wifisfuneral, & Alex Aiono.
“Foundation is an exciting new platform for creators that allows artists like me to realize the true value of our work and benefit directly from the hype that surrounds it. For a lot of people, crypto might feel inaccessible or complicated, but Foundation has built a streamlined process of buying and selling tokenized goods that puts the power in the hands of artists and our communities. Get in now, Be a part of something transformative. You’ll thank me later.” – PLS&TY
PLS&TY has made a radical move to combine the worlds of music and technology by partnering with Foundation for this drop. Foundation is an intriguing Ethereum blockchain platform whose mission is to serve as a stock exchange for art and culture, which allows the market’s natural supply and demand dictate the price of the goods sold on the platform. A rather interesting sales model, this allows the artist to directly benefit financially from the hype surrounding their latest project. If you’re interested in snagging this limited PLS&TY drop you can follow these steps:
- Snag a special virtual token. (Early buyers will secure a better price)
- When the vinyl is ready to ship, the tokens will be redeemable to receive the physical vinyl anywhere in the world.
- Alternatively, token holders can continue to keep the digital value of the token or trade it in the Foundation market.
Could this be the future of how the music industry markets and sells their projects? What do you think? Let us know in the comments!
