Apple Music, dj mix and boiler room arrive in Dolby Atmos with spatial audio

On Apple Music have arrived the DJ Mix, music sets in spatial audio with Dolby Atmos that will bring listeners “into an immersive audio experience” with “multidimensional sound and clarity”. It starts with Jeff Mills, DJ and producer from Detroit, who has created an exclusive one-hour set called “Outer to Inner Atmosphere: The Escape Velocity Mix”.

With DJ mix, Apple says, it also officially relaunches Apple Music’s One Mix series, a showcase of the world’s best DJs and producers. New mixes will be added monthly in the coming weeks. The arrival of the spatial audio, according to the Cupertino company, is the “natural next step” in Apple Music’s commitment to audio and DJ mixes after the recent launch of a program that identifies and rewards all individual creators.

Using Shazam technology, which Apple acquired in 2018 for $400 million, Apple Music is working with major and independent labels to find ways to fairly divide royalties between DJs, labels and artists featured in the mixes. This is in order to ensure that musicians get paid for their work even when other artists use their music.

As part of today’s announcement, Apple Music also debuted “Boiler Room,” recordings made at nightclubs, festivals, and raves, also enriched for the first time by spatial audio. Apple Music will add more sessions mixed into spatial audio throughout the year.
