Barcelona-based artist Brayan Valenzuela founded his store Second Floor as a means to connect his two main passions, electronic music and skateboarding.
The store acts as a hub for merchandise, vinyl, and Eurorack modular products, as well as hosting performances by friends and like-minded artists. On the Eurorack front, you'll find products from Mutable, Qu-Bit Electronix, and Befaco nestled into this small but aesthetically pleasing store next to skate brands such as Enjoi, Girl, and Element. XLR8R has also partnered with Second Floor, with the store acting as the European base for our line of merchandise.
In October, Second Floor will also launch a sublabel called 0000—which will release techno focused music on vinyl and cassette—with an EP comprising four tracks from Valenzuela. As a preview of what's to come, Valenzuela has provided a mix, recorded on his Eurorack setup and Ableton, that contains all unreleased productions from himself.
You can stream the mix in full via the player above, with more on the store here.
