Unknown Artists - Withhold Series

I found out about this label quite late. I don't mind the way of releasing from an artist- or label point-of-view at all.

I do mind it however not because of them, but because of people's greediness, e.g. discogs sellers who buy all records off the shelve and then resell it for crazy amounts.

I never get expensive second hand records, did however get a sealed copy of wh01 this week for 23 Euros (which is 30 inc. shipping) from a Discogs Seller. 30 Euro I would find too much for a record, but damn this was worth it. Am absolutely in love with the vinyl!! Still I know the same seller has all the other withholds on stock for 49 EUR a piece and I fell ready to send him a hate-mail.

same comment as everyone else: phenomenal music, but ridiculous that they are still withholding digital release

ultimately, in these situations, people without a vinyl player (and who refuse to get vinyl players for various reasons) just pirate.  this exculsivity makes no sense, i can't imagine it helps artists.  indeed it causes their art to be locked away... it's even more offensive when the website has short digital samples; clearly they've digitized it already...

anyone know if (a) the identities are known, (b) if there's any plan for digital releases?

i still listen to these fondly, but have not purchased them, as i have no vinyl player.  i would gladly buy them in digital form, AND buy further (digital) releases from the artists if i knew their identities.

this situation is pretty awful

well the Jaffa Kid and Uf0 ones are pretty well known now, and I think there is a comment on Discogs about WH07 being Dawl, which I think is accurate (I don't have inside info, I just think it's fairly obvious). WH012 is Kanyalang - the digitals for the B side of the vinyl are available here: https://truthradio.bandcamp.com/album/dem-feels

thanks for info.  i guess no one knows about who4; that one's my favorite.

i just checked and i'm at roughly 300 albums in my bandcamp collection.  i'd gladly add who4 and multiple others by the artist if i could...

(edit, to be clear, i bring up the 300 to try to give evidence that i'd really put my money where my words are, if i could.  probably most people here consider this collection small.)

I think those two Kanyalang tracks from Dem Feels are the A side as listed on the WH012 clear version, the album cover info and the WH012 black version have the track names and durations jumbled.
