Official artwork, plus 10 additional artworks as representative covers of the songs were made by @ted.iv. See below the main artwork of the NEAR Mixtape along with promo flyer.
Rest will be revealed on the date of premiere.
To highlight music producers, singers, rappers and graphics designers, we would like to propose an NEAR Mixtape vol. 1, which will be fully created by NEAR community. The premiere of the mixtape will be preceded by the special party in the Metaverse in The Playground.
The NEAR Mixtape will consist of:
- 10 tracks,
- 1 main artwork, 10 artworks highlighting the every single track from the playlist (for NFT) and 1 artwork as a promotion of the event in the Metaverse.
As such projects require a lot of work to set everything in place, we propose to do this in the following steps:
- Phase ONE: Collecting; create a list here, where artist will be able to volunteer for the mixtape, for instance; Vandal and me, which counts as one track for mixtape. As NEAR community is about collaboration between artists there is no limit about music producers, rappers or singers per each track.
[FINISHED ON 07/11]
- Phase TWO: Making Music & Artworks; In this phase each group of artists will get 22 days to fully compose, record and mix the track for the NEAR Mixtape. Finished tracks will be uploaded via Google form, the link will be shared when Phase ONE will end. The finished track should have: title and artists names who created the song along with the NEAR wallet names. Description is not needed however is welcomed.
[FINISHED ON 05/12]
- Phase THREE: Promo; In this phase we’ll set the premiere date and we’ll be promoting the NEAR Mixtape vol.1 using NxM social media, BEAT DAO and other channels related with NEAR NFT.
[ONGOING | DEADLINE 07/01/22]
- Phase FOUR: Minting and uploading to YT; few days before the premiere we’ll be uploading all tracks into the YT (NxM official channel) and we’ll be minting every track to Mixtape’s store on mintbase.io in 10 copies each(artists will be included in forever royalties and with one time sale). We’ll do a giveaway of each NFT as a part of promotion of the event in Metaverse, NEAR and mintbase.io.
[ONGOING | WILL BE DONE ON 07/01/22]
- Phase FIVE: Party & Premiere; Final stage, party in The Playground preceded by promotion of the event.
