Bob Rage & Peanuke (Roberto and Paolo Bonato) are two Italian DJs and producers, active supporters of the underground culture. In 2007 the duo founded their “the Dust Realm” project, which encompasses all their music-related activities. They work on musical productions, manage their label called “theDustRealm Music“, compile alternative music playlists, do cultural dissemination on the web, perform DJ-sets and organize underground music events.
The goal of the two brothers is to spread good musical vibes and break the sound patterns imposed by the mass media, aware that a variegated quality “musical diet” leads to more mental openness, thus improving each individual and consequently the whole community.
“Underground Love” is an electronica/techno piece written and produced by the Bob Rage & Peanuke electronic music duo. The track is based on the first Not Fungible Token ever minted by the two brothers, titled “UNDERGROUND LOVE ♥“. It consists of a 31-seconds audiovisual loop and is part of the Foundation collection. To craft the NFT they first started working on the composition of a raw and acid beat. Then they set a software to allow music itself to control the visual part, symbolizing the strong influence of music in the lives of the two Italian producers.
The “Underground Love” full tune has been released on January 20 by the independent label “theDustRealm Music“, inside a digital EP. The release also contains two remixes of the track: one remix made by MARVO MD and the other by Dr. Anchovy. In addition to conventional streaming platforms (Spotify, YouTube, Apple Music, etc.), the entire EP is also available on Audius. It’s a decentralized music platform developing the first community-owned and artist-controlled music sharing protocol. The service aims to become a blockchain-based SoundCloud alternative.
Besides the EP publication, we decided to expand the “Underground Love” universe even further. So we also minted some other related NFTs. A collection of 10 images extracted from the original NFT is now available on OpenSea, available in a limited edition of 10 copies each, combined with the free download of the entire EP. They also released an audio-format NFT of the track “Underground Love” on Mint Songs, available in a limited edition of 10 copies.
The “Underground Love” project is a homage to underground music and culture in general. We’ll re-invest the proceeds from our NFTs sales to support our music-related activities and our independent label’s artists. If you love the underground scene like us, feel free to place a bid on our NFTs. By doing so, you’ll contribute to our cause of spreading good vibes on the globe for a better future.
