Detroit techno pioneer, DJ, and producer Jeff Mills will kick things off with an exclusive hour-long mix inspired by the cosmos mixed in Spatial Audio with Dolby Atmos. Titled ‘Outer to Inner Atmosphere: The Escape Velocity Mix’, featuring tracks from his Axis Records/the Escape Velocity catalog.
“The purpose of this recording was conceptualized and designed to stimulate the listeners’ three dimensional senses and sensations using the subject and idea of breaking Earth’s gravitational pull and leaving the planet. The embarkment to a place outside and unlike our own,” said Jeff Mills. “With this immersive sound experience also came certain aspects that needed to be addressed. Ones that uses our psychological responses, like anticipation and mystery, the risks and danger of such a journey and most importantly, the translation of the feeling that ‘a step forward’ has been taken.”
Apple Music today launched DJ mixes in Spatial Audio with Dolby Atmos, bringing fans into a truly immersive audio experience with multidimensional sound and clarity. The arrival of Spatial Audio is a natural next step in Apple Music’s commitment to sound and DJ mixes following last fall’s launch of a new program allowing for proper identification and compensation of the creators involved in the creation of mixes.
“It’s an honor to have Jeff Mills create our first One Mix in Spatial Audio. He is a generational icon and a true techno pioneer that has taken the concept to a dimension further than we could have dreamt with ‘Outer to Inner Atmosphere: The Escape Velocity Mix.“ said Stephen Campbell, Apple Music’s Global Head of Dance and Electronic Music.
Jeff Mills has spent the last 30-plus years pushing techno into new frontiers, and his exclusive One Mix is no exception, featuring tracks from his Axis Records / the Escape Velocity catalog now available exclusively on Apple Music in celebration of the label’s 30th anniversary.
