Serato Launches Studio 2.0 with the Revolutionary “Stems” Technology, A New Landmark In Beatmaking and Audio Production

Published

on

By

Always ahead of the curve, Serato has changed the game before and they’re about to do it again. The audio production experts have outdone themselves with Serato Studio 2.0, the fastest and most intuitive DAW on the market for making beats. The new DAW provides a robust home for the revolutionary Serato Stems technology, a monumental innovation in the world of sampling and audio manipulation.

“Serato Stems is the biggest moment in sampling since the MPC,” says Cookin Soul, the GRAMMY Award-winning producer/DJ 

Powered by Serato’s one-of-a-kind machine-learning algorithm, Stems enables producers to instantaneously isolate and manipulate four different audio stems, while keeping the sterling audio quality for which Serato is known. Stems splits audio into distinct tracks for vocals, bass, drums, and melodies, enabling producers to instantly create acapellas and instrumental tracks and providing easy integration of additional samples or original sounds with the push of a button. 

“It’s like y’all use some kind of alien technology or something,” says acclaimed producer Dibia$e“because the drums sound clean, the bassline sounds clean.”

Now embedded in Serato Studio’s powerful sampler, Serato Stems delivers infinite possibilities for sampling and unique sound creation. In seconds, users are able to isolate, flip, layer, and chop with finger-snapping ease without sacrificing sound quality, giving them greater freedom to sample how they’ve always wanted to sample. As platforms like TikTok have made remixes and mashups increasingly relevant and lucrative, Serato and Stems can help producers find an audience and more easily express their boundless creativity.

“With this update, Serato Studio is the center of my universe. This is a big moment for music production,” says DJ Khalil who is nominated for two Grammys this year for his work on Kendrick Lamar’s Mr. Morale & The Big Steppers.

Stems made its debut in Serato DJ 3.0 in the fall, and in just a few short months, it has already made a major impact on the culture. Over 50,000 DJs joined the Beta testing period, making it the most popular beta in Serato history. One of those DJs was New York-based DJ Saige. A member of the Serato Academy, Saige used Stems to create her viral remix of Coi Leray’s “Players.” Saige isolated Coi’s acapella and laid it on top of the beat from Busta Rhymes’ “Put Your Hands Where My Eyes Could See,” creating a buoyant mashup that generated over 387k unique creations on TikTok, becoming one of the most popular sounds on the platform. Inspiring dances from the likes of ShaqCiara, and Coi Leray herself (in a video that racked up over 17 million views), Saige’s remix earned an official release on all platforms from Republic Records, helping “Players” reach the Billboard Hot 100.

“The fact that we can get acapella is a huge, huge cheat code for DJs and producers everywhere,” says rising beatmaker Boston Chery. “This is really crazy.”

Stems has already made a major impact in the world of DJing, and its inclusion in Serato Studio 2.0 allows for even more refined sounds and fresh flips. A new functionality that gives producers the fluidity and inspiration to keep up in this digital age, Stems is only getting started.

DJ Drewski & AceMula “Keep It Moving” Song Review

Published

on

“Keep It Moving” by DJ Drewski and AceMula feat Law and Cruch Calhoun has just been released.

The song puts emphasis on Acemula’s very own Drill music and “Jersey Club” music mashup. With an upbeat headbanging tempo that gets you in the groove to move, and a “this ain’t what you want” delivery, this song cannot be toyed with.

What separates New Jersey from all other states is how we have our own swag. “Jersey Club Dance” is a dance style characterized by moves like “Bunny Hop” “Sexy Walk” “Boyden Dance” “B-rock” and so much more. The sound of “Jersey Club Music” is a pulsating, non-stop
beat that may or may not have a DJ instructing dance moves.

Law’s soft voice intertwined with Cruch Calhoun’s hardcore approach gives the song a unique alternative. A switch-up that I believe is what makes it appropriate to listen to at any time of the day. It’s not extremely aggressive nor is it too friendly.

AceMula

When the song comes on Law comes in with her mellow but deep vocals that give off an “earworm” effect. The song has a little surprise to it because when it first comes on, listeners may assume it’ll have a slow or medium pace, but then the feel-good beat comes out of nowhere.

The R&B and Pop Singer’s definition of keeping it moving is not accepting anything that isn’t on her level. Not to mention both of these artists are actually on the move when it comes to their craft and building an empire. Talk about actions speaking louder than words!

During Cruch Calhoun’s verse he rapped about some hard times he went through like giving his last to people who were down. However, this beat is so grandiose that you may not soak it in instantly. His deep voice also gave the song an edge. Calhoun is basically saying if you don’t want smoke KEEP IT MOVING. The rapper states “know not to play with me, check my demeanor.” Which highlights his gangster and his knowledge on street life. A lot of people talk or tweet as Calhoun puts it, but aren’t really action based.

When I first listened to this song on my way to work I was so pumped up and ready to take on the day.

Just be careful listening to this song if you get stuck in traffic!
