EMPIRE to Deliver Immersive Audio Experience Through Dolby Atmos Music to Fans, Artists (MESA)

EMPIRE announced that it will deliver a selection of its catalog in Dolby Atmos Music. EMPIRE will deliver music in Dolby Atmos leveraging an end-to-end content ecosystem spanning music creation to content distribution.

The workflow begins at EMPIRE’s world class recording studio in the heart of San Francisco, where mixing engineers have been trained and equipment has been outfitted to support Dolby Atmos.

Dolby Atmos Music empowers artists and producers to create immersive soundscapes in an object-based mixing environment, allowing them to fill the room with instruments and vocals; lifting songs with space, clarity and depth as never before. From hundreds of recordings created at the studio on a yearly basis, then delivered to music streaming services via EMPIRE’s industry-leading distribution pipeline, independent artists can share immersive Dolby Atmos experiences directly to their fans.

“Growing up in and around Potrero Hill, San Francisco, home to the original Dolby Headquarters, makes this partnership even more special” said Ghazi, EMPIRE CEO and Founder. “My first studio and our first EMPIRE office were just a few short city blocks from this iconic brand. Teaming up with Dolby is the perfect match to deliver the highest quality audio experience on behalf of independent artists to fans all over the world.”

EMPIRE will deliver recordings in Dolby Atmos from multi-platinum artists such as DRAM, Young Dolph and Adam Lambert to GRAMMY® award winning artist PJ Morton and critical darling, iyla.

“We launched Dolby Atmos Music to empower musicians by expanding their creative palette through a new set of tools,” said Christine Thomas, Sr. Director of Music Partnerships, Dolby Laboratories. “Today’s announcement is an important step on this journey, as it provides independent artists a platform to distribute their music in Dolby Atmos through EMPIRE’s leading end-to-end content ecosystem.”
