Four Tet - Gillie Amma, I Love You
Transgressive North and Scottish Love in Action have put together a masterful collections of artists for very admirable cause. The Everything Is New project was created to aid the Dalit, better-known as the "untouchable" children of Southeast Asia, releasing two separate projects. The first of which is the 11-track Sun Choir album curated by English band Marram, which also features help from the likes of Jarvis Cocker, Owen Pallett, and more. The project was recorded over a span of six years on three different continents.
The second piece of the project is the utterly-massive 29-track BOATS, which features Four Tet's "Gillie Amma, I Love You." That track (available below) and the rest of BOATS are individual tracks built from samples of the Light Of Love Children's Choir featured on the aforementioned Sun Choir, in which the artist can choose to do with what they wish.
The lengthy artist list included on BOATS include; Four Tet, Gang Gang Dance, No Age, Dan Deacon, Bear in Heaven, Rustie, Son Lux, YACHT, Califone, Jamie Stewart (Xiu Xiu), Sun Airway, Taken by Trees, Capybara, Deerhoof, doseone, El Guincho, Keepaway, Lucky Dragons, Julian Lynch, Matthewdavid, Max Tundra, Physical Forms, Ramona Falls, The Ruby Suns, rRoxymore, Slanter, A Sunny Day in Glasgow, and White Hinterland.
