Music Integration Platform STYNGR Partners with Blockchain Ecosystem onXRP and Indie Music Label Armada Music to Release Exclusive Album in Upcoming Maladroids Video Game Powered by XRP Ledger – Business Wire | Jewelry Dukan

LOS ANGELES–(BUSINESS WIRE). XRP Ledger (XRPL). The release of the first level is planned for this month. The collaboration will include an in-game radio station with a curated Electronic Dance Music (EDM) playlist in partnership with music label Armada Music, including an industry first step in releasing new tracks from Tom Staar and Kryder, two major artists in the genre.

Developed by onXRP, the initial release of Maladroids will have players as droids battle in teams of 10 through an obstacle course, using speed and agility to run over enemies and race to the finish line. New game modes and maps will be added in later versions. Thanks to play-to-win capabilities with onXRP’s staking system, encouraged racers can leverage the platforms and underlying native blockchain tokens, $OXP and $XRP, in a cumulative pool, with those who cross the finish line first cross, take everything home with you. Maladroids is the first game to be hosted on the XRP Ledger (XRPL) – an open source, public and decentralized Layer 1 blockchain.

Styngr, which will work with Ripple through technical integrations to continue its work in the crypto space, is collaborating with Dutch independent music label Armada Music to bring two major EDM artists, Tom Staar and Kryder, in an in-game collaboration bring radio stations together. For the first six months after release, Tom Staar and Kryder will be releasing two new tracks from their collaboration for the game each month, a first step for the video game industry. After launch, the game will release additional audio emotes and audio NFTs.

Through partnerships with some of the biggest players in the industry, including major labels and publishers, Styngr offers developers the largest library of fully licensed mainstream music to incorporate into their games, removing the barriers typically associated with music licensing and offers monetization opportunities for developers of all sizes.

Styngr co-founder Alex Tarrand commented: “Starting an entire album seamlessly through a game is a game-changing opportunity. We’re excited to partner with record labels like Armada Music to bring brand new tracks from some of EDM’s top artists to blockchain games leveraging the world-class capabilities of the XRP Ledger. To do all of this in a game as fun and competitive as Maladroids is really special.”

Kaj Leory, CEO of onXRP commented: “Working with Styngr and Ripple to bring music to in-game radio for Maladroids has been a fantastic experience. It’s not everyday that independent game studios get to release new music from well-known artists, and to do so from the release of Level One is an achievement for our brand. We look forward to players jumping into Maladroids and competing against friends and strangers alike while discovering great new music from Tom Staar and Kryder.”

“It’s great to be part of this project,” said Michel Peek, Publishing Director of Armada Music. “Together with these amazing partners, artists and dance producers, we were able to co-create a user experience in this game, Maladroids. The dance music field has always been at the forefront of technological development, so working on this project feels very natural for our team.”
