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.
Fresh on Diskotopia:
Live-and-direct trajectile traced from Quezon City to East Richmond through to Tokyo as the inimitable Seekersinternational Presents the RaggaPreservationSociety EP. Self-described as “raw raggamuffin bizniz from a parallel dimension,” SKRS delivers eleven diamond-cut jewels born from a decades-long love of ragga jungle then sequenced into two mixtape-style A and B sides with accompanying digital-sliced tracks. Having melted minds and record players globally over the past several years, SKRS continue to thrill with their incendiary mutations of soundsystem-born musical exercises following incredible LPs on Bokeh Versions and Boomarm Nation. Throughout the proceedings of the RaggaPreservationSociety EP, SKRS lead an expedition through time, space and vibrational language like none has done before.
With such an expansive and breathtakingly singular approach to an undertaking such as the RaggaPreservationSociety EP we thought it best to share the inspirations from the SKRS crew themselves. SKRS OG Papa Cool Breeze states:
"These recordings were made at the unlikely convergence of London pirate radio transmissions, Filipino-Canadian mobile DJ crew gatherings and New-age music meditation communes. The sound palette may be familiar but the context and design are on some other sh*t. Previously known only in their own circles, peer-to-peer networks and Usenet newsgroups, we are now presenting them to a wider listening massive.”
Respected ethnomusicologist, Sipreano (Grammy-nominated producer/archivist behind Light in the Attic's Native North America and Jamaica to Toronto compilations) reports:
"We formed this project to archive and showcase works that widen our scope of understanding of this Ragga diaspora. Rather than a sterile preservation of established templates, the RaggaPreservationSociety EP aims at preservation-by-expansion; championing instead ragga jungle's intrinsic spirit of ghetto-futurism and back-a-yard innovation; simultaneously cultivating the roots while fostering new fruits.”
The RaggaPreservationSociety EP is an exemplary showcase of the untestable might of Seekersinternational; psychedelically fluid by means of communication yet rock solid in its construction. Reductionist, poignant and deadly in delivery, the level of creative freedom by means of musical dialogue spoken by SKRS is wholeheartedly awed upon and applauded by Diskotopia.
