Tamago + $1M + Felix Da Housecat + Paramida + Tiga
Web3 audio streaming platform Tamago announced $1 million in seed funding through Block0, Move Capital, Daedalus, Human Guild and Big Brain Holdings.
They’re announcing this alongside some key news on the artist and label side –
- Chicago house music icon Felix Da The Domestic Cat will be releasing a full album exclusively on Tamago in October and plans to do multiple 1-on-1 NFT drops throughout the year on the platform.
- Paramida, resident of Panorama Bar is also set to announce that she will be releasing the entire back catalog of her Love on the Rocks label online. It will also make an NFT exclusive release on Tamago in June. The release will include an unreleased track accompanied by a guest pass for all dates of his upcoming sold-out US tour.
- Tiga also committed to an NFT drop this year and its Turbo recordings will start downloading their return catalog to platform next week
Tamago uses hybrid technology to create a new earnings feature for artists where they can seamlessly get paid for their streams. Each 1 of 1 is actually a single or collection of tracks that users can not only stream, but also purchase and add to their profile for other users to listen to.
These are basically music playlists that the buyer can monetize based on the royalty structure decided by the selling artist.
