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.

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.
KRM has been known to inject his bass fuelled journeyisms with tripped out drone material aimed at the membrane over the years - as stated in the info sheet, this session could be seen as a continuation (two decades on) to Disc Two of 'Re-Entry' the album recorded as part of Techno Animal with JK Flesh some time ago. When hearing these stark, lonesome frequencies of this new release, his recent work under full name 'Kevin Richard Martin' entitled 'Sirens' springs to mind, and then we have the 2nd album 'Solitude' from King Midas Sound, which drifts in similar vertigo territory at times, with Roger Robinson letting his lyrics sink in over desolate, drifting soundscapes.
This tape, however, is presented as a standalone piece for introspective listening, well timed for a more solitary period for many of us, locked away over the last months, wondering where this earth is going, and perhaps wondering where the escape route lies...
If not in the physical world, then maybe between our ears, with the synapses reacting to frequencies, such as these meditative, skeletal drones here on these pieces, that are tuned for sonic escapism from reality, triggering though processes away from vision, and creating a sense of the unnatural and a sense of inward motion, despite our stillness.
The Shepard tone, a production technique that tricks the mind into constantly following a sound that revolves around it's own axis, often feeling like it descends, or ascends without any sense of an ending, is stated as one of the inspirations for these pieces - and that is something we can only approve of, being big fans of these types of tripped out, bare-bone frequencies ourselves - a very satisfying movement of sound, which KMR uses to deadly effect throughout this tape, in all it's stripped back focus, throughout this set of dark ambiences and scale sliding frequencies.
To our ears, this 2nd volume of 'Frequencies For Leaving Earth' certainly provides that escape route, from the time you tune in to the first cut, right through til the end, for it's 45min, time-melting duration.
