Introducing “Stems”

f5a48b55-2516-4173-8c54-ea0324147c65

“As a premium file format, Stems can create new revenue streams for labels and online music stores to grow their business. A new release will boost label visibility while the hooks, basslines, and more from classic hits are reborn through the imagination of countless DJs and producers”.

You may already be aware of this service having recently popped up on a lot of the major digital stores (such as Beatport, JunoDownload etc).

Railbird Digital can cater for this additional revenue angle for you.
Any revenue earned via Stems would appear on monthly statements as normal under the store Stems were purchased.

In short, ‘Stems’ is a way to bundle (in a .mp4 container) both the original track(s) together with each individual component/stem specific to that track(s).
Currently the stems are compatible for users of the Traktor software, but this will soon be rolled out for use with additional software/hardware.

New Stem releases are currently working to a 6 week lead-time, so take a look at your release schedule and see if there could be some opportunities for you to take a look at.
Consider for all future releases making sure when your artists send over their premasters that they also export the individual stems.

If you’d like to discuss a Stem release to coincide with a standard digital release or need any help whatsoever get in touch.

Railbird Releases w/c 14th Aug

Greta Cottage Woodpile [GCWP04]
Inhmost – Dragbacks on Dockweiler State Beach

Greta Cottage Woodpile bringing some ecstatic ambient works to dinner. Inhmost recalls distant memories of a sun bleached beach and former glories faded back into sand. A time of youthful hope and dreams of grandeur that have morphed over the years into reminiscent memories for two of the crew…

As if Inhmost climbed into their minds and created a dusty road trip using gear from the era – glacial reverbs and slow motion builds drip from speakers, floating audio across ears like filamentous achenes from a dandelion.

Miniscule hints of Goan beaches and horizontal D&B backrooms drift past your frame of reference, never breaking that stream of consciousness beaming out from the sun shadow of Dockweiler State Beach.

An LP for summer earbuds & early morning sunrise sessions, ambient music that is unashamedly retro, yet staring hard into the future with asynchronous joy.

If you recall The Orb & KLF Chillout reigned supreme over your post rave mornings, as you nursed a cup of tea and a roach then this Trip is for you… and if you don’t, enjoy your travels with an open mind. Bliss Out.
