Immersive audio formats are becoming more popular by the minute. So it only makes sense to see more content providers looking to explore the medium. In a new collaboration, Apple Music brings us Boiler Room DJ mixes in Spatial Audio. This means that we can now enjoy sets by Jeff Mills, Boyz Noize, The Blessed Madonna, and India Jordan all mixed for immersive playback systems.
Boiler Room Spatial Audio mixes
Of late, Apple Music is the foremost platform looking to integrate DJ mixes. They began working with the popular electronic label, Studio !K7 towards the end of last year, making loads of new content available. With Apple’s Shazam integration, the service identifies the tracks within the mixes while you listen.
Terry Weerasinghe, Boiler Room’s chief operating officer said that “Boiler Room is proud to collaborate with Apple Music on a series of DJ mixes recorded in surround and mixed in Spatial Audio. Featuring a diverse roster of underground electronic artists, these mixes bring you closer to the club, creating an immersive sonic environment that surrounds you as if you were there.”
Currently, there are 15 Boiler Room sets available in Spatial Audio with more on their way this year. All you need as an Apple Music subscriber is a compatible playback system. Kicking off with the legendary Jeff Mills, this format will continue to grow, as more of our favourite artists are added. Apple has also promised an initiative to offer 200 of the best Boiler Room mixes split into tracks to pay royalties to the individual artists behind the music. The more availability there is for compatible playback systems, the more this immersive format will continue to grow. So we will likely hear more from Apple’s Boiler Room initiative in the future.
