el niño estrella "the smart album"

The vision was simple

How can I release an entire album experience onchain and continue to expand this world?

El Niño Estrella is my version of a limited edition digital box set.

In the future, the idea is you can collect more parts, to create a "super album" or an “ultimate set” adding assets that span beyond music.

A culmination of 10 years…

In 2014, I dropped my first album, Underrated.

My first attempt at D2F - This feels like a full circle moment.

I want the music to speak for itself but I think its dope that ENE features all of the producers that at one point collaborated with me.

The vision was to put together a project that feels true to myself and sound, showcasing my versatility and influences in one listen.

ENE is an open Limited Edition until July 4, 2024.

Dynamic pricing: We are using Creator Rewards on Sound and Zora. At current ETH market price its averaging about ˜$45 to collect the album!

Instead of tiers there are options:

  1. If you’re a superfan, “Collect All” is for you

  2. A fan of my work? Collect a few

  3. First time supporter? Cosign 1
