Apple Music has released a new collection of DJ mixes recorded in Dolby Atmos for Spatial Audio. The first album of the collection “One Mix with Jeff Mills” includes 25 mixes inspired by the cosmos that showcase the world’s best DJs and producers by Detroit techno pioneer Jeff Mills.
In September 2021, it was announced that Apple Music had utilized the audio-recognition technology of the Shazam app to identify music of different artists used in DJ mixes to compensate them for their creations. And it was announced that Apple Music was working with major and independent labels to offer new mixes and fairly divide streaming royalties among artists, DJs, and labels involved in mixes.

Mills is a renowned DJ and producer who is also known as The Wizard and for the past 30 years, has been pushing the boundaries of the techno genre. He called the new One Mix on Apple Music, the “Outer to Inner Atmosphere: The Escape Velocity Mix” that features songs from his Axis Records catalog in immersive Spatial Audio.
Commenting on his new experience, Jeff Mills said:
“The purpose of this recording was conceptualised and designed to stimulate the listener’s 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. With this immersive sound experience also came certain aspects that needed to be addressed: ones that use 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.”
