"’Mountains of Gold’ is sound system inspired, 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" - Richard Russell
Mountains Of Gold is the follow up to Everything Is Recorded’s debut Close But Not Quite EP, which featured a similarly eclectic host of international artists including Sampha, Giggs, Obongjayar, Tic, Warren Ellis, Infinite, Mela Murder, Green Gartside and Baluji Shrivastav.. Both releases provide a captivating snapshot of the kind of collaboration and experimentation that has taken place at Russell’s west London studio, The Copper House. This studio has become a creative second home for a revolving cast of vocalists and musicians who pass through to write, record and share ideas, mixing traditional recording sessions with extended, uninhibited live jams.
Mountains Of Gold’ is available on 12” vinyl featuring exclusive B-side Mountains Of Dub feat. Kamasi Washington. Mountains Of Dub also features live mix and outboard effects by Brian Eno, Redlight and Seb Chew.
