▬▬▬▬ WHO ▬▬▬▬

Amit Patel’s love affair with music began at 13 years old, inspired by the unbridled creativity of early hip hop and the music videos from The Box and Yo! MTV Raps. Desperate to immerse himself in that culture, Amit got his hands on a pair of decks to mimic and understand the effort that went into making amazing music, with a visit to Beauty & The Beat solidifying his audiophile tendencies. A true advocate of the scene, Amit believes that good music, regardless of tempo or genre, can inspire and touch a dance floor, but only when played on a proper sound system that’s rich in warmth and detail.

Brilliant Corners is a bar and restaurant concept on Kingsland Road in Hackney, open six days a week for dinner service only. They serve Japanese and Asian food, alongside cocktails and natural wine, and house one of London's only audiophile soundsystems. What makes the bar unique is that the featured music for each day is curated by some of the most passionate local and international record collectors, guaranteeing a different sound each time.

Overlooking the River Lea in Hackney Wick, Giant Steps is a multi-purpose drinking and dancing venue from the team behind Brilliant Corners. The 500-capacity waterside terrace plays host to live music, World Cup screenings, pop-up eateries, record fairs and a well-stocked bar serving craft beer and cocktails alongside a new indoor music venue featuring a top-notch analogue sound system. Giant Steps has welcomed DJ sets from the likes of Hunee, Floating points, Jamie xx and Four Tet.

▬▬▬▬ WHERE ▬▬▬▬

For this one-off night, we will bring alternative sounds from all over the world to the tropical rooftop surroundings of Potato Head Singapore, showcasing our newly renovated roof terrace complete with brand new Funktion-One sound-system.
