Dividing tracks into four “stems,” bass, drums, synth, and vocals, compatible hardware allows for a new mixing interface featuring each element’s colour coded waveform. The format, which is packaged inside standard MPEG-4 files, also can play as standard stereo mixes through iTunes and CDJ’s (amongst other devices)

Now, Native Instruments have announced that some 600+ labels have signed on to offer content to Stems in the format, including some dance music’s most prominent representatives. The list of labels includes:

50 Weapons, Abstract Architecture, Autofake, Baroque Records, Black Hole Recordings, BluFin, Cadenza, Cr 2 Records, Deeptown Music, Dimmak, EPM, Factor City, FLASH Recordings, Formatik Records, Get Physical, Ghostly International, Green, Herzblut Recordings, Hotflush Recordings, Hydrozoa, Hypercolour, InFiné, Intec, KD Music, Kling Klong, Lapsus Music, Large Music, m-nus, Manufactured Music, Milk & Sugar, mobilee, Monaberry, Monkeytown Records, Moon Harbour, Myth Music, Noir Music, Objectivity, Octopus Recordings, Ovum Records, Pild Records, R&S, RAM Records, Rejected, Room With A View, Sci + Tec, Simplify Recordings, Shogun Audio, Spektra Recordings, Spinnin Records, Systematic Recordings, Toolroom Records, Upon You Records, Watergate Records
