      Not only is RAC one of my favorite artists due to this unique sound, but I have also been thoroughly impressed by his ability to really innovate in the "NFT" space.

      ‘How do I make something [digital] that is made for that experience?' That’s how we landed in that 30 to 45 second loop, where you can get the experience and keep scrolling away if you want."

      Experimenting with a 30-45 second long loop for a "virtual cover" of a song is the future of covers, especially as it applies to streaming. I have found myself completely engrossed by some of the artwork like this on Spotify, so it is cool to hear the thought process behind this.

      "It's completely undefined right now," he says. "That's my favorite place to be, because then you actually have a say." He could go on, of course, but Anjos has to jump. He’s late for his next NFT Zoom.

      It all started from him deciding to go independent, giving him the ability to experiment along these lines... in the NFT game.

      Are NFT's the solution to the "starving artists" problem? I think it'll be very curious to see how this plays out in the coming future.

      I may even have to dabble along these lines as an artist myself. Stay tuned!
