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

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.
Helllllll yeahhh - our dear friend, and Japanese sound artist, cute-toy collector, and ex-punk band micgirl Tomomi has now stepped up out from the shadows of Berlin's DIY circuit and improv scene with her first full release under new alias 'Popon' -
We spotted her on an 'improv's finest' Bristol compilation not long ago too, but this one is the special one right here, served up on new label (to look out for) Heat Crimes... And packed to the brim with tripped out freeform noise and rhythm driven breakcore / tekno minimalism, going full charge in all directions.
When you stick on 'Bubu' - make sure to put your seatbelt on - it's going to be a real ride. Once you're locked into this hallucinogenic magick of sound and rhythm frenzy, you can dive into the unique well of influnces in Popon's music - you can probably hear that she spent some years living in Bristol (if you turn up the volume enough), and you can tell that she comes from the school of punk, and perhaps also japanese noise. But most of all, you can hear a playfulness in there - with such a solid attitude towards breaking the 'rules' of production, melodics, harmony, and finding new paths and possibilites in the process - it's no surprise her previous alias was 'un-know' - embracing a constant sense of exploration, without preconceptions holding back any creative urge.
you could be fooled by her non conformist attitude towards childish sounds and cute things (true punks don't have rules) there is a child-like attitude to creativity and openness to her music (to be clear: that's a very positive thing btw, don't get us wrong) but in the end of the day, what we hear is a mature, grown and wordly attitude to music making. Free from boundaries of backwards 'rules' or restrictions - the sound just goes where it wants to - and Popon guides the madness with care and attention, but not just to tame the noise, but more so to guide it into a continued state of anarchy.... A world where demented toy-esque melodies (quite possibly recorded from toys too, knowing her) - clash with hectic rave sounds and darkest dread ambience... Whipping up a dangerous storm, and dancing inside it.
From the cavernous noise of the opening track (knock knock who's there? - hi it's me, the apocalypse) through to the warped ragga noise and double-time junglist-noise pressure of the closing tracks, and right into other tornados of sweet & sour sound - you never know where the music goes next with Popon. In fact, it's that constant element of surprise, and untamed wildness - something not many manage to capture (in the noise world, or dance music world) this sense of freedom and the ear for intrgue - that is the beauty of this music.
... Truly fresh, and f*cking fierce too.
