In the wake of its launch on no less than one platform than Apple Music, the impressive Dolby Atmos Music format has now taken another big step forward by opening a new Dolby Atmos Music mixing room in another famous London studio.
Founded in 1980 by Chaz Jankel of Ian Dury & The Blockheads, Eastcote Studios staged a superstar parade during its lifetime. Artists like Placebo, Arctic Monkeys, Depeche Mode, Adele, and Massive Attack have all recorded albums there – often early in their careers, thanks to the studio’s long-standing interest in supporting emerging talent.
Now, in keeping with its track record of always evolving technically with the times, Eastcote Studios will bring the immersive power of Dolby Atmos Music to the disposal of today’s new talent with a wonderfully jewel but deceptively powerful and perfectly configured new Atmos mix. . room.
The mixer and speakers set up in this dream-sounding space are perfectly designed to create songs and albums that take full advantage of the way Dolby Atmos lets you create three-dimensional audio space all around – and at the same time. above – from the listener. And you don’t have to take my word for it. The proof will be there for you to judge for yourself at any time on Apple Music, in the form of the very first Dolby Atmos Music track to emerge from Eastcote Studios’ new mixing facility: Yellow face by new alternative pop star Henjila.
This track will soon be followed by Apple Music by the second Dolby Atmos Music mix from Eastcote Studios: Open chest by Sitrekin (otherwise known as Kirstine Stubbe Teglbjaerg, former principal signer of Blue Foundation and co-composer of the Grammy-nominated track Eyes On Fire, which appeared in the original film Twilight).
These individual tracks are joined on Eastcote Studios’ already rapidly growing Dolby Atmos Music roster by Europiana: A full album in Dolby’s “object-based” audio format from regular studio Jack Savoretti.
Eastcote Studios’ new mixing and mastering facility is a joint venture between acclaimed music producer Martin Terefe (who has worked with artists as diverse as A-ha, Jason Mraz, Shawn Mendes and Yungblud) and a longtime collaborator date, Grammy-nominated sound engineer and producer Dyre Gormsen. Gormsen said this about his new Atmos mixing facility:
“We are excited to use our skills and expertise at Eastcote and seize the new opportunities that Dolby Atmos will offer us by creating and supporting some of the most prominent new talents emerging in the music scene. “
Hopefully the mixers at Eastcote Studios are prepared to put in the long hours over the next few months, because now that Apple Music has opened up the joys of Dolby Atmos Music to a potentially huge new audience, I have a feeling they are going to be a bit on the busy side.
