Now joining the Dolby Atmos march on the music side is Matt Darey’s album Wolf – the first electronic genre release “specifically written and produced” in a 7.1.4 Dolby Atmos format.
The idea for the new album reportedly came when Darey – renowned for his development of trance music in the ‘90s – was in the Dolby Atmos studios putting together a DJ mix to utilise the Ministry Of Sound’s 7.1.4 system. The track Wolf involved the specific placing of 60 different elements into ‘3D space’.
The album is available in two versions: a 17-track stereo version, and a 9-track 7.1.4 Atmos mix for those with Atmos speaker packages or soundbars, or even 7.1 and 51 configurations.
