Hands Off! is curated and produced by Miss Alex White of White Mystery, May McDonough of Psychedelic Cherry, LG from Thelma and the Sleaze, and Charlie Kaplan of Tapehead City.

LG of Thelma and the Sleaze says, "This is a statement about there being no tolerance for predatory behavior in the rock scene. The buck stops here. We wanted to put together something special by womxn to empower womxn, as a collective force for change. Cassette culture and DIY culture must progress and maintain its importance moving forward for a better tomorrow inclusion accessibility for all artists. fuck boys clubs."

100% of proceeds from sales of the cassette compilation will 100% be donated to "profits that focus on the empowerment of young women".
