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.
Last year, around the time of Yao Bobby & Simon Grab's debut release on Ossia's LAVALAVA Records, Ossia & Broshuda decided to put on a night together in Berlin, to create a chance for themselves and dear friends to command the sound for a night of fun and noise, for anyone who wanted to join.
The lineup was made up of live sets from Yao Bobby & Simon Grab & Dhangsha, as well as Broshuda, Kinlaw & Franco Franco, and Wilted Woman (who ended up stuck in NYC, and for whom Sunny Graves from LDN jumped in).
Ossia took care of the first hours of opening with a set consisting strictly of cassettes from his collection, played off two tape decks and thru a delay rack.
This cassette here contains this tape-set (well, the first 100minutes of it) and it comes packaged in the original A2 poster designed by Broshuda.
Naturally running at a different pace and mood than your average DJ set would, this tape contains all the magic stop-start / pick & choose type of vibe you'd hope for in a set made up of cassettes, and ruled by the eclecticism and intrigue of a cassette collection for home enjoyment.
Across 100 minutes, you can hear all sorts of gems, from old Pirate Radio & homemade reggae & dancehall tapes (shouts to Steve Barker for sending a big box of his personal tapes across to RWDFWD HQ a few years back), old NoCorner tape 'classics', special DIY editions of Iannis Xenakis and Sonny Sharrock (shouts to Jonny Taylor), an old Ekoplekz radio interview (who remembers that 'radio & rarities tape'?), a bootleg of Alvin Lucier's 'I'm Sitting In A Room', An old bootlegged FM Einheit tape found in a squat in Hamburg, some grime, electro & bleep stuff - a few Bristol bits from the likes of Bokeh Versions, ATC & FuckPunk - and much more. Oh yeah, there's even a German-English language learning tape for social situations (perfectly timed at the bar-chat part) in there -
Shortly put, this one's full of good vibes from a treasured time when we could all squeeze into darkened rooms and enjoy the intrigue of loud sound together -
Edition of 70, because that's exactly how many posters were left over from the night.
Original poster design by Broshuda.
Comes with extra orange shell in case you want to put the poster on your wall.
