Discwoman and Allergy Season announce 27-track ‘Physically Sick 3’ compilation

Discwoman and Allergy Season are teaming up for a third instalment in their ‘Physically Sick’ compilation series.

The fundraising compilation drops tomorrow, July 3, on a Bandcamp fee-waiving day. All proceeds will be donated to grassroots anti-gentrification and anti-police repression organisation Equality For Flatbush.

Frankie Decaiza Hutchinson, Umfang, and Physical Therapy curated the 27-track release and DJ SWISHA mastered it. See the list of featured artists below.

The Bandcamp description for the release states: “The past months have seen long overdue eruptions of sadness and rage directed at bloated, militarized, racist police forces and iniquitous government spending around the world. The puzzle pieces are assembling and fresh eyes are examining corrupt practices that Black & brown communities have criticized for decades. It is time to defund the police and invest in communities that have been systemically attacked.

“For the third volume of Physically Sick, we are focusing on local efforts and raising money for Equality For Flatbush, an organization that has been fighting racist police abuse and gentrification since 2013. Equality For Flatbush mobilizes direct aid when necessary, recently ensuring Brooklyn residents have groceries and supplies during the COVID-19 pandemic.

“Techno, house, and all the sounds at the root of electronic dance music, are born from Black communities. Dance music can only be sustained by an inclusive joy for the marginalized and the dispossessed. As we rally in support of Black lives and the struggles against police violence and inequality, it is the responsibility of every person, from DJs to dancers, not to let things slide back to business as usual.”
