The label are foregoing their royalties and passing on all monies direct to the artists

Posthuman's label I Love Acid, previously a vinyl-only concern with each release limited to 303 copies, have made much of their back catalogue available digitally via Bandcamp.

They're making this move as a way of generating extra revenue for their roster of artists, who like many DJ/producers worldwide have seen the coronavirus pandemic wipe out their DJ diaries (and hence most of their income) for the foreseeable future. With that in mind, the label are foregoing their share of digital royalties so that the artists can take a larger cut.

"We''ll return to vinyl-only in future," said Posthuman's Josh Doherty. "I've always stood by the choice of vinyl-only releases in the face of being called elitist, and now I'm going to be called a hypocrite by some who feel it devalues their vinyl purchases. But some of the artists I'm working with have lost most of their income, so fuck it – this needs to happen".

In total 13 of the label's 20 releases to date are now on Bandcamp, including singles and EPs from Luke Vibert, Snuff Crew, Nehuen, Jerome Hill, Affie Yusuf and of course Posthuman themselves. Find them here.
