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 email@example.com 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.
When one sound has been mastered to it's full extent, such as the Basic Channel / Rhythm & Sound stuff for example, then that sound can reside in peace, all imitators shall fall at their own copycat demise, and the creator can make the due move to mastery of a new style of sound.
Leaving the heavily roots / basic channel influenced Rhythm & Sound moniker that still sits firmly in many a music-minded persons record shelf since the 90's, whilst the master lacquer is still put to good use, with frequent represses for those who haven't had their copies yet, and taking the best sensibilities of such sound to make a new form, Mark Ernestus does the right thing - moving forward, linking up with these african masters of percussion, rhythmic-instrumentation and voice.
The link-up with Jeri-Jeri and their Mbalax style is a very welcome one, and long-time fans of the many foundations of African rhythm, and the masterful mixing technique of Basic Channel / Rhythm & Sound boss Mark Ernestus can now move on to his latest incarnation, with his Ndagga Rhythm Force in deadly formation.
His ability to fixate on the purest elements of a piece of music and make it shimmer with understated, yet overwhelming energy is in full show here once again, exposing the intricacies and excellence of the Jeri-Jeri instrument players and the soft, tuneful tones of Mbenne Diata Seck on vocals to their most crucial extent.
Bare-bones rhythm, introvert yet somehow upliftingly life-affirming frequencies that will get your baby out of pram for a skank as well as getting the skeletons out of the graveyard for a ritualistic shake-up, or something like that.
This one for the mind, body and soul... Beautiful stuff.
Lamb Ji (with Mbene Diatta Seck)
