The PMC Dolby Atmos Music mix of the biggest selling jazz album of all time, Miles Davis' Kind of Blue has just been released by Apple Music, making this seminal work available in an immersive format for the first time to the millions of Apple Music subscribers.

PMC's monitor speakers are the reference for Dolby Atmos Music mixing and are featured in the top studios around the world for mixing in this emerging format. Facilities like Capitol Studios, Los Angeles and Dean Street Studios, London are leading the world when it comes to mixing music in Atmos and it was at Capitol Studios where Maurice Patist, president of PMC USA and head of pro global, worked on the remixing of the certified quadruple platinum Kind of Blue.

Working with the Miles Davis estate, Patist, Grammy winning engineer David Rideau and Capitol Studios’ Senior Engineer Steve Genewick gained special permission to remix Kind of Blue and Sketches of Spain into Dolby Atmos, which were presented at the High End Show, Munich in May 2019.

"At the time we did the mix it was purely for demonstration purposes," said Patist, "but recently Sony Music contacted me and asked if they could use the Atmos mixes of both albums for future release. Of course, we made sure they did and are delighted that they have decided to release Kind of Blue, with Sketches of Spain to follow, using our original Atmos mixes."

In addition to the Dolby Atmos multi-channel mix, Apple Music has also released a Spatial Audio (binaural) mix of the album for use with headphones, which was mixed simultaneously by the three engineers working at Capitol Studios.

Jeff Willcocks, PMC's CEO, said: "The commercial release of Kind of Blue by Sony Music, through the Apple Music platform, is a glowing testament to our support of Dolby Atmos Music, which is now seen as a mainstream music format. The mixes are truly awe inspiring – something that anyone who heard them at the Munich show will attest to. Maurice's passion for Atmos Music has helped position PMC as the monitors of choice for this new format, with many major studios having already installed them and many more very famous content creators currently doing so."
