Once an artist who littered our coverage every week, it is time to get back to the norm. On our latest visit over to CYB3RPVNK we are checking out “Weekend on a Tuesday”, the newest drop from R3HAB and Laidback Luke. To coincide with the song’s release, both producers are partnering up with anotherblock to launch truly transparent music NFT marketplace! R3HAB has toured some of the best clubs in the world and amassed more than 300 million streams of his debut album. What is actually amazing however is that R3HAB was able to accomplish this with no major label backing, only working through his CYB3RPVNK imprint. Through his expanded efforts to increase CYB3RPVNK’s roster, R3HAB has been recruiting a fantastic variety of up-and-comers to provide a major range of music to his audience. With R3HAB consistently popping up on our radar, we have absolutely no idea what he is going to do next and can’t wait.
anotherblock is a community of music lovers building music rights catalogs. The company was founded in 2021 by the entrepreneurs Michel D. Traore, Sebastian Ljungberg, and Filip Strömsten. anotherblock was built upon the idea that accessing music rights should be easy and democratic. By connecting music rights to NFTs, anotherblock creates a smooth and easy way to both buy and sell music rights – a community of music lovers building music rights catalogs together with artists. The company’s founders created anotherblock to increase the value of music by introducing it to a free and open market.
So how does anotherblock work?
250 NFTs, each giving the holder a 0.02% share in streaming revenues, available at a democratic price of around 87 USD. NFTs can be purchased via credit card or using a decentralized wallet such as Metamask. On anotherblock, unlike other music royalties NFT platforms, fans will be able to see what their NFT is worth, what to expect in terms of payouts, and other helpful information, making anotherblock one of the most transparent NFT platforms of its kind.
“After many months and many versions back and forth, Luke and I are excited to share ‘Weekend On A Tuesday‘ with the world. This is a song about breaking away from the norm and choosing to follow your own beat. Sometimes you need to bring the energy to the start of the week – this song is made to get the party started, and we are happy to be part of the launch of anotherblock platform” – R3HAB
“I’m super thrilled to have finally landed this track with R3HAB. Him and I go way back! R3HAB came with this amazing bassline, and I poured a bit more of a housey sound over it. And let’s be honest, ‘Weekend On A Tuesday‘ is how it often feels for us touring DJs. And it’s so exciting we combine this track with the launch of anotherblock” – Laidback Luke
“Music NFTs should combine the amazing worlds that artists create, the color, feeling, emotional connection, with a whole new approach to music purchases, royalties, and fan experiences. NFTs with clear, easy-to-grasp, real-world value promise to transform the music business from its current, sometimes frustrating state into a more artist-friendly, fan-engaging community” – Michel D. Traore (anotherblock co-founder and CEO)
While we are continuously intrigued by how artists are finding enhanced value in their music through the world of crypto and NFTs, we could use a specialist for that deep dive…so we will stick to what we know best. With two huge personalities and veterans on the production, there was no doubt in our minds that “Weekend On A Tuesday” wasn’t going to be a certified banger. A true combination of Luke’s groovy house influences and R3HAB’s slapping basslines, the track will easily find a slot for it to exist and thrive in any EDM fan’s playlist. Whether it is on the festival stage or deep in your local club, sometimes we all just need to take a minute and experience our own “Weekend On A Tuesday”.
