About Everything Is Recorded

Everything Is Recorded is a collaborative project spearheaded by Richard Russell, an influential British producer who runs the highly successful independent label XL Recordings. The collective's recordings are born from recording sessions that take place at Russell's London recording studios, featuring a wide range of R&B, hip-hop, indie, and jazz musicians, including XL regulars like Sampha and Giggs, as well as more surprising guests such as violinist Warren Ellis, saxophonist Kamasi Washington, Crass' Penny Rimbaud, and Wu-Tang Clan's Ghostface Killah. While anything is possible within these sessions, the results often encompass dark trip-hop, vulnerable soul, and brooding rap, spread across the albums Everything Is Recorded by Richard Russell (2018) and Friday Forever (2020). ~ Paul Simpson
