Legendary UK producer Four Tet (Kieran Hebden) has added his voice to the outpouring of international protest following Donald Trump’s recent immigration policy reforms.
Hebden posted a selection of songs on Spotify by artists hailing from the countries hit by Trump’s immigration ban, including tracks by musicians from Syria, Iraq, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and Yemen.
Hebden claims that his experience of producing Omar Souleyman’s 2013 Wenu Wenu album convinced him to speak out against Trump’s dictums: specifically, he says the fact of such a collaboration “not being allowed anymore” inspired the creation of the playlist.
@FourTet Recording with @OSouleyman in Brooklyn a few years ago and it not being allowed anymore got me thinking about it
