Calvin Harris is a wildly successful DJ, record producer, singer songwriter and now he is trying his hand at becoming an NFT artist.
He plans to release what appears to be a koi carp water collection called TECHNOFISH on NFT marketplace Nifty Gateway, March 29th.
Five previously unheard pieces of music will be minted with the visual art overlays being provided by his lifelong friend and music video director Emil Nava.
Harris (really name Adam Richard Wiles) released album ’18 Months’ that holds the UK record for an album that features most Top 10 singles, with 9. He also holds the records for the most Number 1 singles in the past 10 years, topping the charts eight times since 2010.
His fanbase will be eager to get their hands on the first ever Calvin Harris NFTs, and with the minimum entry price likely to be $999, these will generate millions of dollars in sales.
Like shooting fish in a barrel!
Fellow superstar DJ Steve Aoki dropped his own NFT collection at the beginning of March and crashed the marketplace with net sales reaching over five million dollars.
There has been concerns about the environmental impact of NFTs and Harris took to Instagram to assure his fans he is “working with decarbonisation advisor Aerial” and that “a portion of the proceeds will be allocated to high-quality, forest conservation projects verified by American Carbon Registry and to emerging technologies such as Charm Industrial that capture carbon from biomass waste and permanently store it underground.”
The drop will go live here from 5pm on Monday. You will need to be logged on ready to purchase and expect site delays and stress issues.
