XL Recordings boss Richard Russell has quietly been releasing music throughout 2017 as part of a collaborative project titled Everything Is Recorded. The latest release from the collective features contributions from Sampha, Ibeyi, Kamasi Washington, and Wiki.
"’Mountains of Gold’ is streaming above. In a statement released alongside the track, Russell said the track is "sound system inspired," adding that "you can hear a lot of strong and different personalities and voices in the one song, but the feeling is consistent. Everyone has plenty of space."
Everything Is Recorded’s Close But Not Quite EP was released in May. It features guests including Sampha, Giggs, Obongjayar, Warren Ellis, and Green Gartside.
