“Our vision is to create an online community centred around new revenue streams that support the key elements of the ecosystem (DJs, clubs, promoters, fashion designers and artists) to foster the rapid global growth of dance music and with it its values of inclusion and freedom of expression.” said Lost Club Toys co-founder Daniel Grove.
On showcase at both AFTER 2049 and Amber Lounge will be their limited edition Lost Club Toys NFTs. Revellers will be able to meet the founders and pose for photographs with the Toys for a chance to pre-reserve one of the coveted NFTs leading up to the official launch of their 8888 genesis collection in March 2023. Creator collections created in collaboration with established creators and clubs will also be released at a run of 10 NFTs each and offer unique rewards specific to each partner.
Lost Club Toys are inspired by classic soft toys such as the Muppets, yet with a rebellious and fun twist. The “phygital” (both physical and digital) project exists at the intersection of art and design, crypto and dance music culture.
The Web3 startup founded between Singapore, London and Berlin, is using the blockchain to connect key players in the dance music ecosystem to give fans never before seen access to their favourite creators, clubs and festivals.
According to Resident Advisor, the largest journal for dance music culture, the electronic music industry topped 6 billion in 2021 and is set to grow threefold by 2030. Despite that, the vast majority of the industry’s revenue is generated offline through ticket and alcohol sales. The coronavirus pandemic revealed its near complete reliance on physical spaces running in fixed locations. At the same time, dance music continued its massive growth in popularity online, untethered to traditional hotspots such as Ibiza and Berlin. Lost Club Toys is building a community centred around “phygital” interactions, taking the best of the online and offline worlds to make something new.
Holders of Lost Club Toys NFTs will be able to visit partner clubs and festivals around the world, take part in exclusive real and virtual events, as well as connect and collaborate with their favourite creators. Brand partnerships, merchandise, TV & film rights and Collab2Earn, their own version of crypto gaming’s Play2Earn, will all feature as additional revenue streams outside of the NFT drops.
Lost Club Toys is a subsidiary of Studio 2033 Pty Ltd, founded by artist-designer Chris Jarrett, musician Kosmo Kint and filmmaker Daniel Grove, to build and sustain creator communities around original intellectual properties, utilising the advantages of blockchain technologies for transparency, decentralisation and creator focused rights.
Lost Club Toys will continue their crypto conference roadshow at events in Miami and Dubai later this year.
