    Is it me, or has Redeye Records just taken all the fun out of searching for promo's? It wasn't long ago that i'd have a look on that site everyday, just to see if any of the big tunes have have been released.

    I mean what the hell is going on? We can now pre-order promo's? Thursday shipping Item?

    Noisia - Stigma and Mampi - One Finga are great examples...

    Yeah I thought this seeing Redeye and others advertising pre-order promos, takes the excitement of promos, and knowing you've found a secret jem that no one else knows about

    Totally agree boys, there's no point in pre-ordering promos imo.

    I didn't think you could pre-order the promos, i think it means that the promos have been and gone but you can pre-order them for there actual release. Only think this cos i saw Noisia-Stigma on there last week with a normal 'out of stock' pic but now they have it as a pre-order. Just my guessing anyway.

    Disagree, it's not about checking websites 6 times a day just to see if something's out. Especially if you have better things to do....pre ordering is the future.

    That's what I was saying though... It's not a massive outlet for vinyl and theirs already a fair amount of local DJ's who are already "chummy"...

    I've got more chance of getting what I want via interwebs...

    EDIT: Oh and the prices are steeeeeeep! They wanted £9 for Ho Bass!!!

    It was £9, and it was being sold in the same week that D-Style had it on their website... I saved myself a pound! lol
