    DWG TRIPLE THREAT - NOW TAKING ORDERS!

    Yeah OK we know, DWG releases are like London buses at the moment... but hey our release schedule is somewhat backed up right now so we needed to do something to clear the backlog... so whilst you're all still waiting for Rare Dave to give you a Brainstorm courtesy of Latee, Shaker is bringing the heat with another four, YES FOUR, DWG releases...

    For years now the idea of a 'DWG Forum' release has been talked about and, let's face it, there's some serious talent amongst our regular forum members and friends. These next four releases all celebrate this wealth of talent we have amongst the DWG family, we hope you enjoy them as much as we do... and in case it escaped your attention, this is also the first time we've released 'current' artists on the 12" format, it's a bit of an experiment for us so we really appreciate your support!

    IMPORTANT UPDATE!

    Apologies to everyone who was hoping these would ship on 14 April.

    We've taken delivery of the remaining vinyl and unfortunately there is a critical issue with the Sputnik wax which means we are going to have to return the entire batch...

    Therefore NO bundles will ship on 14 April (and highly unlikely we'll have any replacement wax by next weekend either).

    All orders NOT containing the Sputnik EP will ship now.

    Once again please accept our sincere apologies for the delay, we have been seriously let down by the pressing plant.

    Everyone should have got this by e-mail but just in case...

    If you are receiving this e-mail you will have placed an order for our recent ‘Triple Threat’ bundle featuring releases by Sputnik Brown, TDS Mob and Jorun Bombay. As always your continued support is hugely appreciated and in this instance has allowed us to shine some light on some current artists that might otherwise have not had the opportunity to see this music pressed on vinyl. So from both ourselves, and all the artists involved, a massive “thanks” goes out to each and every one of you…

    Our release announcement for the Triple Threat package stated that we expected shipping to commence on Saturday 14th April so by now you are probably wondering where your package is and the purpose of this e-mail is to answer that question…

    We have had the TDS Mob and Jorun Bombay records in hand and ready to ship since early April. However when we received the Sputnik Brown records from the pressing plant a few weeks back it was to our dismay that we found they had pressed the wrong music on the B-side of the vinyl. We were left with no option but to return the vinyl and await a second pressing, which has been the reason for the shipping delay. We received this second pressing on Monday of this week and in a balls up of quite inexplicable proportions the pressing plant have made exactly the second mistake a second time around and we will have to return this pressing as well. To avoid this happening a third time we have requested that the incorrect pressing plates they have been using (from an earlier aborted version of DWG014) are returned to us before commencing this third pressing.

    Needless to say we are applying as much pressure as possible to get the new vinyl delivered as soon as possible but we need to be realistic about how long it takes to press vinyl. At present our best estimate of the new shipping date would be Saturday 19th May but until we have more clarity on a delivery date we can place no certainty around that.

    As we stated above, the TDS Mob and Jorun Bombay records are in hand and ready to ship so to put you fully in the picture here is where the shipping status stands:

    Sputnik Brown orders – all orders containing DWG014 are affected by this delay and we now estimate that these will commence shipping on 19th May

    Sputnik Brown Test Pressings – all Sputnik Brown Test Pressings will ship this weekend unless they included an order for both a Test Pressing and a regular Sputnik Brown vinyl or a Triple Threat bundle in which case they are also affected by the delay and we would expect to commence shipping on 19th May

    Jorun Bombay orders – all orders for just a Jorun Bombay (DWG016) record have shipped or more recently placed orders will ship this coming weekend

    TDS Mob orders – all orders for just a TDS Mob (DWG015) record have shipped or more recently placed orders will ship this coming weekend

    Triple Threat bundles – all Triple Threat bundles are affected by this delay and we now estimate that these will commence shipping on 19th May

    If you have any questions about a specific order or when an item was shipped feel free to get in touch and we will let you know the details…

    Because we have the TDS Mob and Jorun Bombay records in hand it is also likely that we will commence shipping these out to our retail partners in the next few days as they too have customers who are eager to get their hands on these releases. We regret that in some instances this may mean that customers who have ordered from us directly will not receive their records until after some others have ordered them from shops, for this we can only apologise.

    Some of you may be asking why we don’t just ship out your TDS Mob and Jorun Bombay records now and send the Sputnik Brown records when we receive them? Unfortunately we just can’t afford to do that. On average we spend between £1,500 and £2,000 on mailing out each release and to do this would probably add another 50% at least to this cost. On top of that this delay has now meant that we are going to have to pay Royal Mail’s recently increased postage rates when we do finally ship these orders, this was not factored into our postage costs and is a cost that we will be absorbing ourselves.

    We do appreciate that this delay is wholly unacceptable and we understand your frustrations in having to wait, hopefully many of you will have picked up our recent Latee EP and will at least have that arriving in the coming days to keep you entertained while you wait. However if you no longer wish to wait for your Triple Threat bundle or Sputnik Brown order and would instead prefer a refund then please get in touch and we will be happy to sort that out for you although obviously we believe that the music is well worth the wait!

    As always thanks for you support and in this instance your patience too…

    Chris, Dave and Toby

    Quick update...

    EVERYTHING was shipped on Saturday morning with the exception of promo and wholesale orders... it's a really long weekend in the UK so the postal service doesn't start up again until Wednesday which may slow things down a bit but these should start hitting your mailboxes soon...


    Thanks again for your support and patience!


    Toby
