When the Music Gets Played, the Artist Gets Paid

Breaking away from the traditional subscription-based and ad-supported models of mainstream streaming services today, Tune.FM is creating a more sustainable ecosystem through decentralization and tokenization (JAM), allowing artists to be compensated significantly and more fairly. In fact, Tune.FM compensates artists by up to 100X compared to other streaming platforms. In addition, artists can sell music, release exclusive NFT drops and multimedia elements directly to fans, and can take advantage of exclusive, immersive super fan experiences including merch bundles, meet and greets, VIP events, backstage passes, FaceTime opportunities with artists, and more. Offering a pay-as-you-go model, Tune.FM gives users the ability to choose what they listen to and pay for only what they consume, and to get compensated for listening to promoted music streams, representing a seismic shift in the music fan experience. 

"This partnership with Space Blue further underscores how Tune.FM is creating a paradigm shift in the way music is consumed, distributed, and monetized," said Antar. "Tune.FM’s innovative and disruptive approach features a music streaming platform that offers rare or exclusive content from legacy artists and is a great platform to introduce new and upcoming artists. This approach provides great opportunities for artists to connect with fans and significantly expand monetization opportunities through streaming royalty micropayments and exclusive, unlockable and immersive super fan experiences. This is just the beginning of the type of content we will offer on Tune.FM," said Antar.

Driven by his passion for music and technology, Antar is on a mission to disrupt and democratize the music industry. His visionary approach and the immense potential of Tune.FM’s model and vision have captured the attention of investors as he has secured over $30 million in funding.

"Space Blue’s mission is to create a unique, rare asset class of content off earth through the Lunaprise time capsule, and a platform for artists worldwide, supporting humanity and promoting a sustainable future and today we are thrilled to further propel our mission forward and partner with Tune.FM to bring these unreleased and rare tracks to music lovers and fans worldwide," said Dallas Santana, Space Blue's founder and curator of the Lunaprise Museum which landed on the moon on February 22, 2024. "We have been waiting for the right partner with the right platform and Tune.FM is the perfect match for both us and music fans across the globe.”

Space Blue Club made history curating the Lunaprise Museum, which landed on the moon on February 22, 2024, and is a global space tech-art community, where art and technology collide, providing VIP experiences during high-profile space launch events and hosting global impact and charity auctions to support nonprofit causes, reinforcing their commitment to social responsibility. NFT art has revolutionized the creative landscape as Space Blue Club partners with leading blockchain networks to mint rare NFT artwork for collectors around the globe. Lunar lander Odysseus landed on the moon with the Lunaprise Museum, a time capsule with 222 art projects on board curated by Space Blue. With Mission 1 complete, Lunaprise is curating partnerships with artists and unique brands for Mission 2, scheduled for later this year.

The partnership between Space Blue and Tune.FM is significant as it represents a shift towards a more immersive and interactive music experience. Combining iconic artists' nostalgia with cutting-edge technology, this collaboration aims to redefine how music is consumed and shared in the digital age.

Looking ahead, Space Blue plans to continue exploring innovative ways to connect music enthusiasts with unforgettable experiences that transcend traditional boundaries.
