It is been a long time since I wanted to write a post about one of my TOP favourite record stores. What can one say about this legendary record store? A place of people rubbing together, producing endless waves. At Discos Paradiso you will find the crème de la crème of all kinds of music. Artists from all over the world have visited this avant-garde record store in Barrio Gotico between Raval and Plaza Catalunya, right in the heart of the beautiful city. Friendly atmosphere, always with good vibes and you never know how your day will end up by visiting this place. One thing is for sure; you will definitely pick at least one mind-melting record.
Whilst I am writing these words I bring to mind those days when I lived in Spain and I started visiting Discos Paradiso every week. I spent endless hours in there and the guys always happy to help, to offer some beers and that was all… all you needed to feel like home, feel like being in Paradise! At that fantastic place, I met some of the best DJs and artists of the city and I made friends. A territory of exchanging ideas and music. A place where you can be musically educated. Discos Paradisos it is far more than a record store, it is about promoting new ways of existing. It is a lifestyle.
This is what makes Discos Paradiso the best record store in Barcelona and one of the best ones in the world, in our own humble opinion.
As electronica is our soft spot, there you will find an exquisite collection of all subgenres from Acid Techno to Detroit, Industrial, Deep House, Dub Techno, Bass, Noise and Experimental. Needless to say, you will also find a great selection of other genres such as Disco, Funk, Soul, Hip-Hop, Indie, Rock, Folk, Synth-Pop. Remember to dig deeper and check all the offers as the hidden gems are waiting for you.
Live gigs and events that took place in that space had marked my taste and certainly opened my horizons.
That is a quite different and emotional post but I think this is the real way to support, through pure love and personal experience.
Miss you guys. Warm and musical greetings from Bristol!
