It was only a week ago I created the secret “Dojo” section of my website, enabling token gated content for owners of a DJ Robzilla NFT music player, my incredibly cool and funky fans. But now, a glimmering new entity has appeared on the horizon to shepherd you into a new age…
I am ecstatic to welcome you to yet another incredible chapter in my exploratory journey of blockchain, music and NFTs. Today, I’m taking a giant leap into the future of music with this brand new interactive NFT music player: Crystalline Phoenix.
Crystalline Phoenix isn’t your typical JPEG NFT. It’s a unique and interactive experience that pushes the boundaries of music consumption in the digital age.
An NFT Music Player
This isn’t just about listening to music – it’s about shifting the paradigm and correcting the hyper corporate power dynamics in music. It’s about freeing artists from predatory loan shark record labels. It’s about artists connecting with fans in new, more direct ways. And it’s about giving my fans a sense of ownership over their music — something that has sadly been missing in the era of ever-present streaming.
You might ask, “What makes Crystalline Phoenix so interesting?” Well, apart from it being a fun experiment in the fusion of technology and art, this NFT music player is designed to unlock token-gated content at dojo.djrobzilla.net by logging in with your web3 wallet.
This means you can enjoy exclusive access to stems, song downloads in various formats such as ogg, mp3, wav, and flac, special liner notes for each track, downloadable track art… and potentially more down the road.
What’s more, Crystalline Phoenix is fully playable in the GameStop Chrome Web Wallet. This NFT music player integrates seamlessly into this popular wallet, ensuring you can enjoy Crystalline Phoenix on whatever devices you have your GS Chrome wallet installed on.
Before we go any further, I want to take a moment to express my profound gratitude. To all my DJ Robzilla fans, subscribers, and Discord members – thank you for your support. I wouldn’t be here without you. Your encouragement and feedback have been integral to my growth.
To celebrate your support, I am dropping this Red Packet for anyone who reads this to redeem for a free NFT of “Crystalline Phoenix”. Scan the below QR code in your Loopring Wallet to claim your NFT. There are only 100 available, so grab ’em while they’re hot!
And our journey is far from over. As I continue to innovate and push the boundaries of music and technology, I invite you to join. Your thoughts, ideas, and feedback are invaluable. If you haven’t done so already, I highly encourage you to join my Discord channel. It’s a space where you can connect with fellow music enthusiasts, discuss music/crypto/tech/gaming, and get regular news and updates directly from me.
Crystalline Phoenix is more than a music player. It’s a bold step into the future of music, a testament to blockchain innovation — and above all, a tribute to you: the incredible communities surrounding Loopring, GameStop, NFTs, and lovers of music everywhere. I can’t wait for you to experience it.
I am pumped to announce some new Token Gating updates to DJRobzilla.net! My goal is to deliver dope NFTs with innovative utility, and with that in mind: I have implemented a fancy new feature to my website that will allow you to get more out of your DJ Robzilla NFTs.
🔐 Token Gating: Thanks to the incredible work of /u/stepwn I am now offering token gating on my website, which means that NFT holders will gain exclusive access to a hidden Dojo section at djrobzilla.net. In this secret Dojo, you’ll be able to download the track that your NFT represents, giving you a unique and personalized experience that no one else can access without the NFT! If you are already a holder from my previous giveaways, congratulations! You get new utility out of thin air. Aren’t NFTs freaking sick??
To use your NFT to access this secret part of my website, first visit this URL and then connect your wallet by clicking “Log In to Web3” and follow the prompts.
🎁 Red Packet Giveaway: To celebrate this token gating update, I am hosting a Red Packet giveaway of some interactive music player NFTs of my hip hop/house instrumental track: “Ryan Cohen’s Wild Ride” so you can try this new functionality for yourself. “Ryan Cohen’s Wild Ride” is an interactive playable music NFT (using the Chrome GameStop web wallet) and gives you exclusive access to download the track from my website.
There is also a Shiny version of this NFT! In the future, I will update the Dojo to include more features that the regular and shiny versions of the “Ryan Cohen’s Wild Ride” NFT can unlock, including but not limited to:
– Download the track in any format (wav, mp3, ogg, flac) – Stems for DJ Remixing – MIDI Files and Samples used – Ableton Project Files
Some of these features will be locked to the “Shiny” version, which I will do a separate Blind Box Giveaway for coming soon.

KA-POW! Buckle up, bucko! Because we’re blasting into the stratosphere with my freshest release yet: “Fend” – a mind-bending collaboration with the enigmatic Purple Kloud, featuring none other than the lyrical superhero Open Mike Eagle. This track will transport you to an uncharted galaxy of sound and rhythm, where cosmic dust dances along with hypnotic hip hop music beats.
Was it fate or mere happenstance that brought us together for this interstellar jam? The universe may never reveal its secrets…
Who is Open Mike Eagle?
Born Michael W. Eagle II, Open Mike Eagle is an American rapper, comedian, and podcast host hailing from Chicago, Illinois. He has built a reputation for his unique blend of indie hip hop music, experimental beats, and intelligent, thought-provoking lyrics. With a diverse discography that spans over a decade, Open Mike Eagle has collaborated with a wide range of artists and producers, solidifying his place as a major force in the alternative hip hop music scene.
Open Mike Eagle‘s distinct style combines wit, humor, and introspection, often exploring personal and social issues with a fresh and innovative perspective. His work has garnered critical acclaim and earned him a dedicated fanbase that appreciates his artistry, intellect, and versatility.
Who is Purple Kloud?
Purple Kloud is a musical artist who blends hip hop music, soul, and jazz influences to create a unique sound.

His sister Juliet encouraged him to pursue music, and he found inspiration in Yasiin Bey (Mos Def). Purple Kloud attended Full Sail University, graduating in 2012 with a Bachelor’s in Music Business. He worked with notable artists and developed his own unique style, influenced by comedians like Martin Lawrence and Dave Chappelle. Purple Kloud creates soulful music, writing his own songs, making beats, and playing guitar. He dreams of collaborating with Del the Funky Homosapien and The RZA. With a goal to inspire others, Purple Kloud strives to make music that feels good and resonates with listeners.
It’s been awhile since I announced anything on here, but the truth is I never stopped creating ? I went underground, to be sure, and stopped streaming and playing live for awhile. But I had some technical problems with my streaming setup that made it difficult to stream without significant capital investment. Enter: NFT.
NFT is the Magical Key to the Metaverse
Despite taking a break from public life, I have still been grinding in the studio. I’ve also been learning the arcane art of minting music NFTs to unleash a torrential storm of dope new content. Content that you can own, trade, and maybe in the future rent out or even use as collateral for loans.
In addition, I am researching ways of providing exclusive perks by holding my NFTs in your wallet. For example, if you hold a “Ryan Cohen’s Wild Ride” NFT, you’d unlock a NFT-holder only page. That page gives you download access to the song at any time in any format you choose (FLAC, WAV, MP3-320). Holding the special “shiny” version of the NFT would earn access to a special “member’s only” page. Keep in mind, this is all in the research phases, so it may be awhile before implementation.
Some (not all) of my NFTs will additionally represent the copyright associated with my music, giving you the ability to listen to, remix, combine, or otherwise repurpose my music and yes… release and monetize it in any form you choose. These special edition 1/1 “rightshodlers” editions of my NFTs would give you the explicit legal right to use my work as long as you share 50% of the revenue from said work with me (DJ Robzilla).
A New Frontier
I’m still fleshing all this out in my head but I’m really excited to be able to offer these new services to y’all. And at a much cheaper cost to myself than if I didn’t use NFTs. People often ask, “What is the use case of NFTs even?” And for me as a musician the answer is clear. Streaming services take a huge cut of streaming revenue, likewise for iTunes and Bandcamp.
By releasing these songs as NFTs I am able to save a ton of money on paying for expensive middlemen. And when you trade my NFTs on public marketplaces, I automatically get a cut of said revenue. This is a win-win. You get a tradeable asset and can support my music by selling your copy if you ever want extra cash.
And since I’m saving all that money, I can pass on the savings and still make just as much from my art as before. I don’t want to be one of these people selling their music for 1 MILLION DOLLARS or something ridiculous like that. If you think it’s worth that much go ahead and resell it for that much. But I’ll price my initial releases closer to what you would expect to pay on iTunes for a song.
More Than Fancy, Expensive JPEGs
NFTs are so much more than fancy expensive JPEGs. They enable a host of new use cases that we as artists are only just tapping the surface of. As such, I am excited to release four proof of concept NFT Interactive Music Players that hold 1-2 songs each. Each player is a limited run of various rarities listed below.
Behold: NFT collectible tracks!
Click any of the images above to fill out the corresponding order form and get your NFT (while supplies last). Please send the indicated quantity of LRC to djrobzilla.loopring.eth to get your NFT. Keep in mind you can only experience the full interactive nature of the NFT inside the GameStop wallet. However, you can still hold the NFT in your Loopring wallet until you have GS Wallet set up.
Thank you for your support DJ Robzilla fans! Join my Discord community for early dibs on free NFT drops and more.
