Leaving Records Introducing GENRE DAO

Where we’ve been Leaving Records, established 2008/9, is an all-genre artist community and record label founded by Matthew David McQueen (A.K.A. Matthewdavid), reaching over 200 releases from artists worldwide.

Where we are going
The new technologies and mindsets powering Web 3.0 can profoundly change how music is created, appreciated, and shared between artists and their communities. In our efforts to be on the cutting edge of this technological revolution, Leaving Records is honored to be challenging the notion of what a record label could be in the 21st Century.

Collectively-governed entities known as DAOs (Decentralized Autonomous Organizations) allow like-minded people across the Internet to come together to achieve shared goals in a radically new way. Without relying on a single authority figure, the DAO’s operations are decided upon by its members.

We owe our sustainability to artists, friends, and supporters — the community. Experimenting in Web 3.0 territory, we will now engage in ways to further the coordination & operation of Leaving Records from within our community.

Introducing GENRE DAO $GENRE is our community token that represents membership in the Leaving Records community. $GENRE can be meant for many things, many which are still being developed - a symbol of LR equitable growth, a badge of solidarity, a governance token, currency to buy NFTs, or as a utility to unlock token-gated experiences. Our token is for the DAO community members, artists from the Leaving Records roster, Day1 NFT holders, the greater participating community and those adding value to the GenreDAO Treasury: a reserve for creative project incubation, events, artist mutual aid initiatives, and more.
