NiftyMediaArt’s revolutionary platform is built on the Algorand blockchain and enables artists, musicians, video makers and authors to deliver premium NFT story driven content.
NEW YORK, June 29, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — NiftyMediaArt, Pixlhaus Entertainment, and music group LS+B (Leather Sox + Basics) close out NFT NYC week by announcing their partnership to develop the Lonely Sox Social Club, an exclusive art and music NFT (non-fungible token) collection.
The Lonely Sox Social Club (LSSC) is the creation of visionary animation/ NFT artist Toon Tha Maker of Pixlhaus, in collaboration with musical group LS+B. Toon Tha Maker, aka Dave Warren, is an award-winning animation veteran turned crypto cartoonist with credits ranging from The Simpsons to The Minions, Sons of Anarchy, Pinky and the Brain, Dilbert, Animaniacs, and many more. LS+B is a "supergroup" collaborative effort bringing together three music and creative titans, Shafiq Husayn, Josh Stevens, and Ikuma Matsuda. "Lonely Sox Social Club is a place to catch the super VIBE," said Josh Stevens, "Future funk for the funky fresh," said Shafiq Husayn, "LSSC, no new friends, only Solemates," said Ikuma Matsuda.
The partnership will create high-valued NFT collectibles that push the boundaries of immersive entertainment by developing an LSSC community that showcases rare art, dope music, community engagement, super rad utilities, and exclusive real-world experiences. Dan Hoffman, Co-founder of NiftyMediaArt, commented: "We’re thrilled to be a part of the legendary collaboration that brings talented artists and musicians together. When you have this kind of fire with amazing artists, there is no question the NFT community will GET LIT over the Lonely Sox Social Club and make them a household name in no time."
The Lonely Sox Social Club has a robust roadmap that features a limited-edition hand-drawn series, a generative PFP collection, an ultra-rare 3D offering, and a first-of-its-kind physical NFT gold pendant. In addition, LSSC NFT collectors will also receive access to a member’s only version of an original song by LS+B. "The vision for the Lonely Sox Social Club is to create an engaging, feel-good Web3 experience where community, commerce, and good vibes beautifully come together," said Toon Tha Maker.
NiftyMediaArt is built on the Algorand blockchain and designed for an unparalleled streaming experience, making it the perfect platform for art and music. LS+B produced a NFT song specifically for the Lonely Sox Social Club. NiftyMediaArt gave an exclusive preview of the Lonely Sox Social Club at their NFT HOUSE Summer Event for NFT NYC Week, held at the SOHO Home Studio on June 22, 2022, located in the Meatpacking District, Manhattan’s most fashionable trendsetting neighborhood.
The Lonely Sox Social Club centers around a group of funky fresh socks who find community, friendship, and good times inside a Las Vegas-style speakeasy lounge. The sock-themed characters in the NFT collection depict the various personalities and traits that one might expect to encounter in such a fine establishment. Owners of Lonely Sox automatically become members of an exclusive social club, with perks ranging from early access to new offerings, exclusive events, and commercial usage right to purchased Lonely Sox NFTs.
