Diet Clinic marks International Women's Day with Weaponise Your Sound

NTS radio show Diet Clinic showcases some of its guests on a new charity compilation

To mark International Women's Day, NTS radio show and cassette label Diet Clinic has released a compilation of exclusive tracks that showcase some of the programme's previous guests. Running since summer 2015, Diet Clinic's broadcasts feature female DJs and artists reflecting on aspects of sexuality, environment and mind.

Weaponise Your Sound Vol 1 pulls together a selection of exclusive tracks by guests on the show, including CAR, Deena Abdelwahed, Fantastic Twins, Lokier, Marika Underspreche, Moor Mother, Sue Zuki, and Penelope Trappes. “They may be scattered across the globe”, confirms label boss and host Kristina McCormick, “but their love, strength and support for their art and their female counterparts continues to inspire and drive me on a daily basis.”

Proceeds will go to Focus E15, an independent housing campaign in East London, who support women and their families evicted from their homes, demanding social housing, and not social cleansing. “Moor Mother is involved in a similar project called Community Futures Lab in Philadelphia,” explains McCormick. “I am constantly awe of what they are doing over there.”

Weaponise Your Sound Vol 1 is available on cassette and digitally via Bandcamp.
