First Fanmix Band Revealed: SMANTX

Today Bryce Weiner revealed the first Fanmix band – it’s SMANTX, a three-person band based in Baltimore, Maryland. They are described as “a powerhouse mixture of head bobbing hooks, tasteful guitar riffs and atmospheric synths. SMANTX and their music has an indie-electro pop sound that has been affectionately dubbed dream-pop for their introspective lyrical content and the irresistibly dancy beats that help drive them.”

SMANTX has been featured on MTV’s Catfish, Floribama Shore, and Jersey Shore Family Vacation. Their songs have also been heard on international outlets including Sky Sports Networks and the English Premier League.

SMANTX is running their first Fanmix campaign here. You can click the link to read more and pledge, and I’ll also post the basics of what you get at the different pledge levels here.  You can also scroll down for YouTube videos of a couple of their songs I’ve posted below.

All pledge levels get their first album, as well as a copy of their forthcoming album which will be released in 2020.

First FanMix Artist Launching This Thursday Nov 14

Bryce Weiner posted an announcement on Twitter just a couple of hours ago.

Tao Blockchain was launched in 2016 after a series of experiments in launching cryptocurrencies leading to Tao, the Swiss Army Knife of crypto. From there, parternships were created, Congress and the SEC were lobbied to help create the best regulatory environment.

Fast forward to today and we have a music label, a multi-million dollar Hollywood recording studio, a fully regulatory compliant cryptocurrency exchange, a successful trial run with ODBcoin, and recently the FanMix platform.

Tomorrow will be the reveal of the first band on the platform, with more bands to come. Exciting times!
