/// FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS::

... very often i receive similar questions. Also every visitor, who is new to my website and eventually would like to buy some music for the first time, has a couple of questions. Here i've compiled a little FAQ which does also work as an explaination and help. As always it's possible to write me too with any question.


Question ::
------------
Answer ::
----------
How can i purchase music from you? Please send me an E-Mail or use the contact form. Sofar there is no shopping system on this site. But orders via Mail are easy. Just let me know what item you want to buy. Important: Let me know your shipping adress - and how you want to pay (Paypal or direct Bank transfer). You will receive further infos, including the shipping costs usually within a few hours.
What can i buy from you? Only Vinyl Series items are for sale! - The DGT Series on this website is for presentation and exploring - it can be purchased via downloads from many online Webshops. For this visit external shops. I've compiled some under the links page >here< or visit any other that you like.
How much Shipping Costs do i have to pay? The Shipping cost depends always on the Size and wheight of the package. I will always use the best and cheapest shipping solution for you. Thats why there are no fixed costs for any orders. Also it depends on where you are located. After you've send over your shipping adress you will receive the total amount of the money that you have to pay including the shipping costs.
Why is there no regular shopping system including shipping costs and immediatley check out with paypal? The most important reason is about the shipping costs. Normal shop systems has some fixed and pre-calculated shipping costs scale. That way it's possible to access total costs and make a fast check out - the downside is, the buyer will mostly have to pay more then needed.
Here i will calculate them most cost-saving for you at each order. For example if you order just one vinyl from a foreign country, i can ship it usually for only 3,99 euro from germany the cheapest way. Also email orders are easy and straight forward and i don't bite.
Can i buy and download something from you? Buying is possible but no download links will be available. If you want to buy some music digital in form from download files, please visit the shops under the links section.
Where the hell is something located? Something Records is located in Harz Mountains Germany!
How can i pay? You can pay with Paypal or direct Banktransfer.
When do i have to pay, and when do i get something? All payments have to be done in advance. After the money has received at the account, the order will ship as soon as possible. Paypal payments will get there very fast, while banktransfers will take a few days.
How can i listen to your music at something-records.com? Two ways. Click on the small PLAY button - - located at the right corner at each release. That will open your player and all tracks of that release will play in a list (*.m3u). The other way is to click on each single track of the release. That will play only that single song. Every MP3-Link-function of this website will be highlighted in orange color when you roll over it with your mouse. Click on it and there will be something happen!
Is there any additional information available for something releases? Yes, click on the "/// read more ..." link, or on the cover pictures for that specific release. Also there are bigger images for each release behind the both Cover buttons * ~.
How do i know which release is available and what is currently sold out? You can see the status next to the release:
- 'in stock' (available and ready for eMail orders)
- 'sold out' (currently sold out. If i get many request i'll considering a repress maybe)
- 'no stock' (not for sale & nothing in stock)
Who runs the label and who are the Artists behind it? Well, that's me ( Stephan Laubner :) The STL project is more on the vinyl and beat orientated side, while the Lunatik Sound System is Ambient and experimental listening stuff. Synthonic Matter is a new project and is mostly freestyle Electronica. Other Something artists are listed under the links section.
What does DGT Series mean and why don't you sell it here currently at any format?
DGT stands for DiGiTal. It doesn't make much sense to sell any DGT Series item on CDs, other Formats like Vinyl, Cassettes or whatever, cause only a handful would buy them. The DGT Series is mostly ambient music and comes in (non)entertaining experimental sound, which doesn't sell a bit - so i stick only with downloads or files at external shops and sell just my Vinyl Series. As much as i would love to sell them in some hardware format + as much as i love to make & do believe into this Series - bottom line: i can't sell it here and for a few. Please visit your favourite download shop to get them. However i encourage you to get the for-cd/printing-optimized HQ covers that i make every time for each DGT Series release. In order to do whatever you like with them to do - for private use only.
Can i send you any Demos? Demos have to be send by post in physical form on cdr or something like that. Please no download links - i will not check them out!
When will your latest Vinyl releases be available in digital stores around the globe, ready for downloads? Please note that the latest and newest Something Vinyl Series items will never be released the same time when the physical vinyl comes out. That's because vinyl is more important to me and i will wait a good while before they are up at digital-stores worldwide. If you are like me, please support and buy the vinyl...
Is Something active in other www networks / can i find you elsewhere? The truth is that i'm contemporary not active at places like Facebook, Myspace, Google+ or any kind of blogs or online discussion forums. Any accounts or content about me or something is not done by me and is either fake and cheat, or not under my control ! Nevertheless you can watch some videos here ( hosted by youtube ) and listen to some recordings at soundcloud. If you would like to get in touch, feel for express yourself, asking any questions, comment anything to me or if you are just interested in something, please write an e-mail. The chances are very low that we actually meet up somewhere and under four eyes. thank you :)
Can i multiplicate your music and Something content to share it with others? Please ask before you act.
if you don't do so, you will have to live with the fact that your multiplication will be removed by some enteties, without asking you as well. And that doesn't neccesarily means, the removing process has anything to do with something records per se. It's maybe not under my control.
Are you coming from outta space? ...are u :) ?
