I keep waiting for a hip-hop producer to use Atmos to do something really interesting with the sound design. Still waiting.
I agree, I had yet to hear a hiphop/rap atoms mix that impressed me until Outkast ATLiens came out with their 25th anniversary last week. Disclaimer - I may be slightly biased because this was one of my favorite albums from high school.


Here is another one that isn't really hiphop/rap, but sometimes bleeds into it. Fantastic Album IMO.

For some reason your links/lists wont let me save to my Library, they only say "preview" and play partial songs; what's that about?
When have these links in Apple Music on my PC, they also show "preview", Then I sign out and then in again, and the I can add them. Always works for me.

Fantastic Negrito is truly fantastic.

Soul/pop/r&b

Superb Atmos mixes. I would love to buy this one on Blu Ray.

Second both of those recommendations!

The link here to Fantastic Negrito just plays lossless. (Albeit it does sound pretty good up mixed through Dolby surround.)

I was enjoying this one last night:


Added tracks BOYHOOD and ADULTHOOD to my favourite Atmos tracks playlist.

Apple TV 4K (5.1 for me)


* Shame this isn't out in physical form, it's an instant buy for me in surround .... only if!


The mix is nice but not too crazy.
for instance the song "Natural Blues" (Featuring – Amythyst Kiah, Gregory Porter on vocals) has only some percussion (snare etc?) in the center channel but vocals seem to be coming from center via phantom center. The rears are mainly orchestral strings (Budapest Art Orchestra.)

This is a fantastic album in Atmos. It has been out for a while, first on Tidal and now on Apple Music.My favorite songs are Heroes and The Lonely Night.

I've done it and it worked for me also.

OTOH I keep getting in trouble with Apple. I absolutely HATE trying to search/find anything with the 4K remote and the Apple 4k box. So I log into my account on my PC to do my searching and then put what I find in a playlist or my library, then go listen to it with my 4k box.
Shortly later I get a nasty email from Apple thinking I have more than 1 user in my account and wanting me to pay for a family connection.
That part of it sucks.

Is it just me or are The Bee Gees songs no longer available in Atmos?

I just checked and they say they are (didn't actually listen, but "Get Info" shows "Dolby Atmos". So maybe just you?
i just tried the links that the other members posted and they no longer show as Atmos. I had these saved in a playlist and none of the BG songs work. All my other Atmos songs play fine.

Oh and I’ve checked on my iPhone and AppleTV 4K and neither work.

Listening to them all right now and all still in Atmos. No idea what your issue is.
