How to use the reserve function
If you'd like to purchase items from our site but want to save money on shipping costs, you can use our reserve function to combine your orders over an unlimited period of time, and ship them together for one combined shipping price when you are ready.Just hit the 'reserve' button at the checkout page as your shipping option when you've finished making your order, and your order will automatically be held in reserve here until you are ready for us to ship everything to you.
You can keep as many orders in reserve with us via our site as you like, until you are ready to ship. Just send us an email when you are ready to ship your reserve orders, and we will get in touch with the combined shipping price, or ship for free if you have exceeded the minimum order amount for free shipping to your address.
Can the reserve function be used to get free shipping? Yes - If your combined order total is more than £50 within the UK, over £150 within the EU, or over £225 worldwide, we'll ship your order to you via courier service, for free.
Here's a step by step guide to using it:
1. Click on the account icon to log into your account.
If you don't have an account, please click 'create account' to make one. If you had an account on the old RWDFWD site, please create a new one with the same email address used on the old site - this will ensure your previous orders are brought through to your new account.
2. Add records to your cart as normal.
3. When you're ready to check out, select 'ship'.
4. Then select 'Reserve items' on the shipping method list, then continue to payment.
5. Once payment is complete, your order will show in your account as 'unfulfilled'. We will have put all the products aside in reserve for you to combine with other orders and ship later in bulk.
6. When you're ready to ship all the items you have in reserve, email us on firstname.lastname@example.org and we will calculate the shipping due and arrange for payment to be taken.
7. Sit tight and wait for your records to arrive in the post!
We offer free shipping on orders over a certain value
UK orders over £50

This is automatically applied at checkout and reserve orders also count towards it.
EU Order info
Unfortunately, the UK is no longer part of the EU - This means that certain shipments sent to addresses there from us may be subject to tax and / or import duty - All orders sent from RWDWD are sent ‘DDU’ - That is, duty unpaid - any import tax and/or duty is the sole responsibility of the buyer.
If you would like to use our reserve function to group several orders into one large shipment, we can arrange for it to be sent tax and duty pre-paid so you don’t have to worry about it at a later date - Contact us for more information.
One little extra handful has been handed over to us just recently at Fairfield Club, Govan - and now in Bristol, at RWDFWD HQ ready for dispatch -
Another parcel has arrived via our pen pal Scope Otaku, sent straight to us from the confines of his dub box (aka studio) in Glasgow -
Following that gone-in-a-flash tape-only excursion 'Scars Of Babylon', this new package now contains a CD, burned straight from the spot where Scope Otaku dishes out excursions of versions of ruff & tuff dubwise abstraction, and presented in fine DIY style.
The only way you can hear these unique dub-infected excursions is via these CDs - created, and presented by Scope Otaku in true 'do it yourself' spirit.
(although, we do have the permission to give you a DL with the purchase too, but keep it for your ears only!).
Contained within these CDs are nine previously unheard tracks, all instrumental.
If you liked the sounds of Scars Of Babylon (or if you missed out and want a slice!) then you'll be bang into these too.
4040, contains a slew of infectious, slow motion dubwise rhythms -
immersive, bottomless-pit reverberations spurred on by basslines and thumping drums, heartbeat style. Squelched synthlines and FX slide through faders and aux returns (that's the dub style) and season the bassweight with salt and pepper, and spice, and a splash of buckfast.
On the first round of tracks, the step is ultra heavy and immersive. It's sounding like a proper extra terrestrial space signal that's somehow tapped into the sound of Jamaica in the 70's, but caught some interference from Tangerine Dream's early synth experiments in it's broadcast, only to spit it all back with a skewed signal ratio, stretching the pace into something more expansive, that wouldn't go amiss in a Vangelis soundtrack (see track 3 'Intrusion Countermeasures').
On Track 4 - we find a version of 'Bad Kush Dub' - which goes even deeper into the depths - here, the radar must've swept past a ghostly reverberation stuck in the courtyard of Hard Wax from the basic channel days - but once beamed up back to that spaceship, it's sounding more future facing, aka a touch darker and more twisted (welcome to post 2020 baby).
If the first half of this CD was to open the gates into various dubwise worlds via outer space signals, then the 2nd half sounds like our connection with earth has now been lost, and we're now drifting in the atmosphere, re-organising the frequencies we collected on that first trip into something that's tuned into strange planets, unfamilar territory - time to turn off the machines, and meditate on spaceweight.
Edition of not many - so be quick if you'd like one.
Hand written title and stamp added to the outer sleeve.
