    Subject: ** COMPOUND RECORDS SF IS CLOSING **

    To: Compound Records New Release Updates <djflux@compoundrecords.com>


    Everyone probably knows that we’re closing our San Francisco location by now, but I wanted to drop a personal note (as personal as it could be when you’re addressing a huge list) to everyone thanking them for their support over the years. In case you’re wondering why we’re closing, it’s mainly due to slow sales which I think can be attributed to the whole economy in general right now. As many of you may know, the markup on records is minimal at best so any change in sales volume can be devastating.

    During our 4 years of operating we’ve come into contact with so many awesome people and so many people that have given us mad support and love. Rest assured that we’re not getting out of the DnB scene, we’re just going to be focusing on different aspects of it (production, parties, djing). Once again, thanks for all your support and keep an eye out for us in the future!

    Peace,
    Evan

    PS— Just to reiterate: we’re having a 60% off sale until Jan 24!!

    i doubt bbs will follow. actually, they probably helped kill compound. bbs kicked the shit out of them in the internet ordering. so again, i wouldn't be surprised if bbs put the final nail in the coffin.
