Las Vegas-connected DJs Steve Aoki and 3LAU have joined forces for new project Punx, billed as the world’s first DJ act associated with CryptoPunks NFT characters. The project was inspired by their recent audio/visual NFT collaboration “Jenny,” with Aoki stating, “Though we’ve been friends for 10 years, it was our shared passion for web3 that inspired this collab. Using our own CryptoPunks in the visual imagery is just the start of how we plan on bringing the incredible web3 community into this project.” The duo plans to release new music and tour in 2023.
