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.

I would actually use my record shop more often, problem is though, by the time I get their (saturday) all the decent stuff is gone and your left with crap... Too many dj's with their fingers in the pie...

Get to know the guy behind the counter, you go in regulary an chat to him he will learn your like an dislikes an if you get chummy he will put stuff aside for you ;)

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!!!
