Navigating onchain music is no easy task.
With so many artists, songs and platforms to explore, we wanted to give you a curated list of collections to get started.
Each of these collections represents a culturally significant moment in the history of onchain music.
It is non-exhaustive, and there are plenty of artists who we could make a strong case for including as well.
We hope this Starter Pack can get you off the ground, all without having to leave this page - thanks to Mirror.
Let’s dive in.
The largest collection on Sound at the time of writing - Criteria is a 8-track EP spanning 2500 editions.
The fusion between electronic and hip-hop is a defining moment in Daniel's career - and each of the songs features a unique supply.
The first collection on Sound Protocol, the 5-track EP puts a fine art spin on a hip-hop and electronic inspired collection.
As the CEO and founder of LNRZ, Reo Cragun was cemented himself as a staple in the community, and Frameworks is the collection that best defines his onchain catalog.
The virtual artist project has been making big strides following the conclusion of their first Season consisting of 6 songs and 6 origin videos.
Combining cinematic environments with undeniable production quality - RŌHKI represents the future of music creation and storytelling with a heavy AI influence and character development.
Pushing creative envelopes and calling it how it is - MODERN ROMANCE is the first official collection from rising talent Bloody White.
With 5 songs all featuring a unique rarity and drop format, the collection exemplifies Bloody’s versatility as one of the most talented producers and songwriters onchain today. Listen to our podcast with Bloody here.
The 7-track audio-visual experience was minted in partnership with Lens, Symphony, Mochi and HiFi Labs.
Eternal Garden is the bedrock of emerging artist TK - an artist who’s planted a flag across numerous events, conferences and one of the most active collector groups in the space.
This starter pack tells a fraction of the story with the emergence of onchain music.
There are dozens of artists who have made significant impact with their collections, and we acknowledge that there are many who deserve a mention who are not included in this piece.
We hope that by keeping it concise to 5 artists and their collections, we can give new collectors an easy way to quickly get their hands on collections that helped shape the space into what it is today.
Here’s to the next generation of onchain artists.
