Saving Misbits Record Shop

Misbits Record Shop, one of the few record stores in Bucharest and perhaps the most interesting needs your support to continue its journey during these hard times.

“Hello, guys! I don’t know how to start this, just that the last 7 years were a dream come true and many hopes for a better future of vinyl in Romania.

From the first day I opened the shop, I wanted to make people happy, happy like me when finding a good record, so much enthusiasm! I didn’t think at all for the shop as a profitable business, I just wanted to keep low prices so that customers can afford to support their passion.

After a few years I realised that I had to rethink all, as something wasn’t right…but hey! you cannot put a price on good music, so I went further! I didn’t think about the future, I lived in the moment and I was satisfied because people were satisfied. For me, it’s a huge success when I see people happy!!

I need to be honest with you… money sucks, yes! They change people, they change businesses, they change everything… but at the same time.. we cannot live without them. Unfortunately, we live in strange times now and I need your help!

You will probably be surprised about me asking for help but I still want to be able to deliver you my selections. I know that until now I haven’t shown you my downs, only my ups, but this time it’s different.

A friend told me that I don’t need to be alone in this so that’s why I decided to start this campaign.” – Miss I

At the heart of all fine parties and festivals built around electronic music, no matter the size and locations, you’ll find the record selectors. Music lovers who spend countless hours digging through record bins all over the world. With no social gatherings allowed for the past months, this chain is broken down and so is the whole underground culture around it.

As a key part of Romania’s underground electronic scene for the past 7 years, Misbits Record Shop has reopened people’s appetite for records that create amazing dancefloor memories.

The shop plays a very important role in Bucharest, being the first electronic music oriented record store in the city’s history.

We helped DJ’s grow their record collections, we also helped the party goers to finding that one crazy record their favourite selector plays regularly, we even had people coming to the shop barely knowing anything about electronic music and we ended up making them curious about this style, while also creating new friendships.

For the past few months we operated into survival mode, as business went down more than we expected. With no light at the end of this pandemic tunnel, we are in a position of asking for help. As you, our dear friends and customers, well know, running a record shop implies mostly passion with little to no profit. This year’s crisis made it worse than we could ever imagine… What we want is to keep Misbits Record Shop on a floating line until this whole madness ends one way or another.
