Severed Head - Severed Surround System

Fans of Severed Head have noted that they absolutely love the new mixes on this 20-song compilation which sees classic tracks mixed into 7.1.2 Dolby Atmos by Tom Ellard. Clearly that is a long way off from popping cassettes into ones beat-up Walkman, which may even have had an appetite for batteries and tapes when several of these tracks were originally released. A couple notable tracks include “Casey's Ion” and “Big Car Retread,” which accompany the remaining early techno dance groove infused pieces.

When immersive listeners order this download that includes 20 tracks from original releases remastered in 7.1.2 Dolby Atmos, they also will receive a Binaural version too. Just peak inside the digital PDF booklet for the MP4 link, tech help, and even a Q&A. Original mixes by Robert Racic, Paul Mac, Garry Bradbury and Tom Ellard.

Please note that the Binaural tracks provide a surround experience on headphones only, and instead listeners will only realize an expanded stereo image when played through speakers. Another tip, Apple OSX requires the latest operating system, a Silicon processor and Apple branded headphones for full experience. iPhone requires iPhone 7 and above, latest iOS and Apple branded headphones. Likewise, Windows 10/11 requires the most recent Microsoft Media Player, plus an optional purchase of Dolby Access from the Windows Store is reported to improves the sound quality.
