Hmm....obviously its going to be a bit quiet coz its at 33 and two tunes on it.

But yea I thought the same, the vocal is very quiet in the mix :( (to me anyway)
Also the A side seems to be limited to buggery. (still feeling it!)
Bit gutted coz of the effort of going 180gram too!

Not having a whinge, no one owes me nowt but just gutted coz really need that Flow Dan lyric firing when you play it out.

I had a problem with that Pink Punk Reso remix. Its a filthy tune but lacks the punch it should do. Whether thats down to it sharing its side with another track or just the overall quality of the pressing I am not sure.

Its just that its really quiet, not like other two track 33 vinyls which can be fixed with a tweak of the volume on the mixer

hmm i hate it when people chop up and misquote.

It's more to do with the mixing stage rather than the pressing stage - I would've thought (I dunno, im gonna pretend Im in the know), its missing a lot of high end(to me). Using your ears or a graphical thingy.

Makes the vocal sit shit and really hard to hear.

The overall volume is fine just the lack of high end is whats making u think its quiet.

Hope that make sense (or appologies if im completely wrong)
Im gutted regardless. Flow Dan is a badman.

But will cds survive 80 years and counting...? I have a feeling they will deteriorate and turn into some kind of horrible chemical mess.

But what really bothers me, is when labels press on really thin vinyl...it only costs 10p extra a unit to get heavy vinyl at pressing...easily worth it in imo.
I need a cup of tea

got stuff pressed with gz before at its proper and more $$

a good plants a good plant be it in uk or elsewhere
i had a run of records pressed at gz n they came back with a minute silence in the middle of once of the tracks.

Who is responsible for warped vinyl? Is it an accident by the factory machinery, or idiots in the distributors/ record shops who store it incorrectly. really wouldnt be surprised if its the latter, and all the more irritating because its avoidable

Im sorry to hear that, i have always found them great and know many others who have also been most happy with their service, its the first bad thing ive heard about them-thanks for letting us know, although i still dont think their location has anything to do with it
cheers

Just being too thin will do it. I bought a record last week and had it standing up, at an angle of about 85 degrees (that's science that is) and in three days it was warped. Crap.
