Now on its eleventh anniversary, international Record Store Day is set to happen on April 21. What began with eleven independent record stores in the United States has branched into over a hundred record stores around the world. In the Philippines, Satchmi is poised to be the first in the country to join their roster.
In partnership with Offshore Records and Ayala Malls, the event is bringing local vinyl enthusiasts exclusive access to exclusive Record Stay Day 2018 titles, limited edition vinyl pressings and repressings.
“It has always been Satchmi’s goal be part of the official list of record stores to be acknowledged by RSD,” explains Edric Chua, one of the founding members of Satchmi. “Now that it’s an internationally celebrated event, we are excited to have been awarded a pledge here in the Philippines.”
Ronald Sy, Satchmi’s Managing Director adds, “We worked extensively to bring in exclusive RSD Vinyl releases this year because we want our customers to experience how the US celebrates Record Store Day. It would be the very first time any record store has done this in the country.”
Here are some titles you can start adding to your wish list.
