Eastcote Studios, an independent music recording facility, has opened a new Dolby Atmos mixing room in the West London studio complex.
Jack Savoretti Europiana’s new album was recorded in Dolby Atmos at the studio. Apple Music recently added the immersive Dolby Atmos sound experience for its subscribers.
The Eastcote team is heavily focused on promoting new independent artists and labels, and the new Atmos studio will allow emerging talent to use the power of Dolby Atmos to create and produce music in new ways.
The first track to be mixed in Dolby Atmos from Eastcote Studios is a single by emerging alt-pop artist Henjila, signed to Coldpress and Locomotion Records. The single debuted recently by BBC Introducing and was named Song of the Week by BBC Introducing Berkshire.
Eastcote Studios was founded in 1980 by Chaz Jankel of Ian Dury & The Blockheads and musical engineer Philip Bagena. This is where Massive Attack recorded Blue Lines, and where artists such as Depeche Mode, Adele, Arctic Monkeys and Kaiser Chiefs also created some of their albums.
The studio is now owned by Martin Terefe, music producer, musician and songwriter and member of the multidisciplinary artistic collective Apparatjik. He has produced Grammy, Brit and Juno award-winning albums, and has worked with artists such as A-ha, Jason Mraz, Cat Stevens, Shawn Mendes and most recently Yungblud.
The new mixing and mastering facility, Eastcote Mastering, is a joint venture with Grammy-nominated sound engineer and producer Dyre Gormsen, who has worked with Terefe on several projects.
Dyre Gormsen said: âMartin and I have been fortunate enough to work in the music industry for many years and with some of the best known talent. 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.
Jane Gillard, Head of Music Partnerships, Dolby UK, added: âThe Eastcote team has an impressive track record of success and I am especially delighted that Dyre and Martin want to support and nurture new talent. With Eastcote investing in the latest technology with Dolby Atmos, this will offer artists a new way to create music and connect with their fans and with the latest Dolby Atmos Music news available on Apple Music, this will open a whole new window. opportunities for all artists.
