Could a new sound format change music production?

DJ and producer Prime Cuts from the Scratch Perverts explains why he's using a new music format called Stems, which has been developed by Native Instruments.

Prime Cuts tells BBC Click's LJ Rich that rather than making life easier for a DJ, the creative options the format brings are 'vast'.
