K Records' Back Catalogue Gets a Hip-Hop Makeover on New Comp
Published Sep 25, 2014Since 1982, the legendary Olympia, WA indie imprint K Records has thrown us its share of curveballs, but the imprint has managed to surprise once again with the announcement of a new hip-hop collection.
Called All Your Friend's Friends, the compilation features 30 rappers from the Pacific Northwest, including the Chicharones, XPerience, Heddie Leone, AKA, Wildcard, Poeina Suddarth, Ang P, MG! The Visionary, JFK, Bishop, Smoke, Free Whiskey, Puget and many others. The rappers perform new material with beats made from K's expansive back catalogue.
Below watch thrift shops meet "Thrift Shop" with a trailer for the compilation's accompanying mini-documentary (which, yes, cuts from a Macklemore talking head segment to label mastermind and indie pop god Calvin Johnson).
We also get our first proper taste of the compilation with "Cynic Syndrome," a bass-heavy crew cut featuring verses from Onry Ozzborn, Zikki Carr and Candidt.
All Your Friend's Friends drops on November 11 in both physical and digital formats.
