Istari Lasterfahrer - All Tracks Previously Unreleased On Tape
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
EU orders over £150
Worldwide over £225
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.
We remember seeing the name on flyers for squat parties and the likes, at places like Hamburg’s long standing ‘Rote Flora’ when we were barely old enough to enter, and Lasterfahrer has continued to stand up for all weirdos and different-thinkers over the years, by the looks of it.
This tape, packed with - you read the title, right? - stuff that's previously unreleased on tape, will give you a real good insight into the twisted worlds of Istari Lasterfahrer and his Sozialistischer Plattenbau label (est. 1999) that have kept giving us a refreshing change from the clean cut, well-organised dance music DJ's and overly-branded promotions that we are confronted with on an unmissable daily basis.
Istari Lasterfahrer does not give a fuck about your rekordbox collection and bpm calculated DJ sets, and most likely he does not give a fuck about which genre tags we try to ascribe to his music, because it doesn't work like that - basically, these are twisted sound worlds for those who like it WRECKED, DAMAGED and DISTURBED - ready for DIY space travel (or at least just plain old brain confusion with eyes closed) in 2020 and beyond.
Stacatto strings clash with barrages of breaks, piano concertos go head to head with basslines that are about as central as the curry powder & well fried chips are too a good currywurst. Lashings of hi-tech distortion and freakish ambience make friends on the same plate, just like the Apfelmus and the Kartoffelpuffer do, back in Hamburg.
Listen up kids, put away your homework, load up this tape and get schooled on some real underground bizniz (bonus: this school is a whole load of fun too!)
60 minutes of mixed & merged original material.
Pro-dubbed, printed onbody and served with tasty inlay artwork.
