Nothing To Commit Records (NTCR) is a research and publishing platform committed to the production and expansion of knowledge related to contemporary art, literature and music within and across the global South.

Operating as an online platform, record label and publisher, NTCR is dedicated to working with writers, artists, composers, curators, musicians, programmers and DJs to encourage dialogue and collaborations between practitioners and institutions globally. The platform encourages dialogue and collaborations between practitioners to facilitate the production, circulation and reception of contemporary practices from within the global South.

It serves to expand on existing cultural artifacts, to not only recuperate neglected histories and cultural heritage, but also as a means to producing an archive for future consideration and exploration. One of the platform’s more directed concerns is dedicated to exploring the social and ideological signification of sound and music to rethink the social, spatial and geopolitical.

Concerned with the intersection of art and music, Nothing To Commit Records hosts a collection of audio material, including artist produced vinyl records, that challenge, critique and provide alternate trajectories of imagining historical processes, diasporic formations, national and cultural identities, and encounters and contact zones brought about by coloniality, modernity, and decoloniality.
