All Your Friend’s Friends is a short film piece (20 mins.) documenting the creation of K‘s NW hip hop compilation album by the same name, brought to you by Red Williamson and Newspin Films.
All Your Friend’s Friends [KLP255] is the brainchild of producer Smoke M2D6 and MC Eprhyme (as seen in below photog), 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.
Their vision was to create an album that would embody the sense of community they’d found in Olympia’s music scene, by bringing together friends and peers to contribute their talents. In the end, All Your Friend’s Friends also acts as a retrospective of the legendary Olympia label and serves as a reminder of its role in bringing together so many talented and like-minded individuals.
Based on interviews taken during the recording phase of the project with quirky and charismatic NW characters ranging from Calvin Johnson to Macklemore, the mini-doc takes us behind the scenes of the making of a real NW audio artifact, as well as providing a glimpse into the unique D.I.Y. hip hop and underground arts scene of Olympia, WA.
Other cameos include Xperience, Silas Blak and Jace (Silent Lambs Project and The Blak Stax), Onry Ozzborn, The Chicharones, and album producers Smoke M2D6 and Eprhyme, among others.
