Hi guys,
I've been playing with Spleeter ( ... 88985e797e), Deezer's source separation engine and I can tell that it does a very good job and as such would allow any DJ to create their own STEM tracks. Here's the intro from their site

"We are releasing Spleeter to help the research community in Music Information Retrieval (MIR) leverage the power of a state-of-the-art source separation algorithm. It comes in the form of a Python Library based on Tensorflow, with pretrained models for 2, 4 and 5 stems separation. Spleeter will be presented and live-demoed at the 2019 ISMIR conference in Delft.
A brief overview of source separation
While not a broadly known topic, the problem of source separation has interested a large community of music signal researchers for a couple of decades now. It starts from a simple observation: music recordings are usually a mix of several individual instrument tracks (lead vocal, drums, bass, piano etc..). The task of music source separation is: given a mix can we recover these separate tracks (sometimes called stems)? This has many potential applications: think remixes, upmixing, active listening, educational purposes, but also pre-processing for other tasks such as transcription."

Now this could allow the needed base to support STEMs

Yes! I just saw this too and can't wait to try it. Would be sick to implement this in Mixxx (would possibly even consider contributing for this...)
