Episode notes

In this wide ranging episode, Jack Spallone, Head of Crypto at HIFI Labs and major player in music+crypto's early days, maps how Web3 has emerged from past attempts to deal with music assets using blockchain, and how the whole ecosystem has been guided by artists and collectives taking control. Touching in NFTs, DAOs, and all things decentralized, Jack talks about how a more artist-driven future is dawning thanks to music tech, if we can learn from the mistakes of the past and not let tech hype bamboozle us.
