K released a CD two years ago with the title All You Friend’s Friends – where over 30 Pacific Northwest MC’s produced a Compilation with Samples from the (vast) K Records catalogue.
On his last tour, Calvin Johnson has been showing the All Your Friend’s Friends Documentary, featuring the Hip Hop artistes from the compilation.

His current record – This Party Is Just Getting Started was, in its major part, made in collaboration with Smoke M2D6 – who made all Beats on the aforementioned Compilation. You will find some familiar names on the Selector Dub Narcotic record as well- such as Ashley Eriksson (Lake), Chris Sutton (Hornet Leg, COCO) and Angelo Spencer among many others.


Together with La Castanya, K Records has co-released the new LP by spanish artist Aries.  Adieu or Die is  a “Unique Excursion into electronic: pop full of shiny harmonies, explosive beats and shimmering sounds“.

Both acts start their tour October 30, 2016, playing a show in Vienna November 3rd at the Celeste.

One of the latest K releases is the All Your Friend’s Friends Compilation [KLP255].
It is the brainchild of producer Smoke M2D6 and MC Eprhyme, who first came up with the idea to comb through K‘s catalog for samples that would act as the foundation for a collection of brand new tracks featuring MCs from Olympia and around the Northwest.

Calvin will bring a Documentary of the Compilation on Tour showing it at various places – also at the Mo.ë in Vienna on October 16.
All Your Friend’s Friends is a short film piece (20 mins.) documenting the creation of K Records North West Hip Hop compilation album by the same name, brought to you by Red Williamson and Newspin Films.
