Who is Mark de Clive-Lowe ?
Founder of Mashibeats, Mark de Clive-Lowe (@MdCL) is a lifelong musician. A Japanese-NZer based in Los Angeles, he's been a prolific artist at the intersection of jazz and electronica for over 20 years. Starting on piano at age 4, dabbling with drum machines in high school and debuting globally with his album Six Degrees (2000/Universal), he's largely considered one of the pioneers of jazz-hybridity - bringing jazz and improvisation into electronic and beat music. He's collaborated with a who's who of global music including DJ Spinna, Masters At Work, Sheila E, Omar, Kamasi Washington, Eric Harland, Restless Soul, Bugz in the Attic, Jean Grae, Yahzarah and countless more.
Since early 2020 MdCL has been pioneering again, this time in the web3/crypto space with the first audio-visual album on the blockchain (Motherland), a paradigm shifting Ethereum crowdfund to $BUYBACK his back catalog albums from labels, and community building, curating and mentoring by way of our Mashibeats community.
$BUYBACK is the governance token of Mashibeats. Where $MASHI coin is our main fuel for rewards, merch and premium access, $BUYBACK holders are the top level overseeing Mashibeats with voting power for community initiatives, treasury spending and get whitelisted for select drops.
Founding $BUYBACK holders were defined by the $BUYBACK mirror campaign - every contributor received a reciprocal amount of $BUYBACK tokens and form our initial governance membership.
$MASHI Coin is designed to foster and grow the Mashibeats community founded around Mark de Clive-Lowe's work and creative vision. $MASHI v1 was created by Rally on the Rally blockchain, used for extra community access, exclusive merch, lessons or project consultancy sessions, and could also be earned by contributing to our community or winning production challenge competitions.
