We first wrote about stem licensing service Tracklib back in June 2016 when it pitched at MidemLab. It is aimed at the DJ and remixer worlds, allowing users to buy and license track stems in one location.
In October it signed a deal with the estate of Isaac Hayes to make a number of his unreleased tracks available for remix; then at the start of this year it signed a deal with BMG to make a selection of its catalogue available in this way.
Now Tracklib is changing its business model, moving away from selling stems à la carte towards subscriptions. There’ll be tiers: Essential (five track downloads each month for $5.99 a month or $59.90 a year); Standard (15 track downloads each month for $13.99 a month or $139.90 a year); and Professional (35 track downloads each month for $29.99 a month or $299.90 a year).
As part of the push around this, Tracklib is working with rapper Styles P to give new producers the chance to remix his latest single using Tracklib samples.
