No Parlez Atmos Mix premiered in London

I was delighted to host a special Atmos playback at Dolby HQ in London on Thursday night with a group of selected guests including Paul Young, No Parlez producer Laurie Latham, guitarist Steve ‘Boltz’ Bolton and who created the immersive audio mix.

A selection of SDE readers were also present as we experienced David Kosten’s Atmos Mix in Dolby’s dedicated screening room, which has a capacity of around 65 people.

I spoke to David beforehand and then interviewed Paul and Laurie afterwards. Paul was stunned at the clarity and the separation present in the Atmos Mix, particularly enjoying the crystal clear backing vocals of Maz and Kim (aka ‘The Fabulous Wealthy Tarts’), while Laurie simply nodded in David’s direction and said “I don’t know how you did that”!

It was a family affair with my wife Anne present, along with daughter Esme who was keeping glasses filled and chatting to the various guests. Tim Young, the original mastering engineer for No Parlez was also there, along with various cohorts of Paul’s from back in the day. Michael Neidus, who has managed the reissue campaign for Demon Music was in also in attendance with a few colleagues.

It was fantastic to meet some SDE readers and chat, and a few people took the opportunity to get a photo with Paul. The Q&As at this event were filmed so we’ll be uploading some clips to the SDE YouTube channel soon.
