Discord has quickly become one of the most relevant social media platforms, and has set the bar incredibly high for its competition. It almost feels wrong calling it a social media platform, since its utility goes far beyond that of your average social media app. It’s become a means of forming tight-knit digital communities, and artists everywhere are starting to tap into the resource.
Though Discord is known to have a slight initial learning curve, all of its members who get past that stage swear by it. From assigning different roles for new members, to the text and audio channel features, Discord has given artists and brands the ability to form their perfect version of a digital community. The type of engagement that is had between artists and fans has transformed drastically over time, and Discord is proving to be the best medium for this new level of social sophistication.
Artists tend to be outspoken advocates for the platform, so we asked 27Delly and Riz La Vie about their thoughts on Discord. If you don’t know these budding NYC-based artists, take this chance to get familiar. You’re bound to be hearing more about both of them very soon.
27Delly is a rapper from Harlem who’s proven to be much more than that. His creativity bleeds through all of his work, whether it’s music, visuals, or his highly regarded NFT drops.
