Stems is a platform where users can buy and sell music stems. “Stem” is an individual track forming a song such as a vocal and a bass.
Artists can release stems as NFTs and create songs by reusing stems to earn royalties.
Fans can support artists and receive royalties by buying stems.
Top songs and remixes are released on conventional platforms including Spotify and Apple Music.
The aim of Stems is to foster music collaboration. The platform is built on Polygon blockchain and its social features are powered by Lens Protocol.
Stems is currently its beta version. Now the core community team is coordinating the releases of original stems before they are available to any user. In the future, all artists will be able to release original stems.
