  • Giant Steps is moving on from its Hackney Wick, London location. The team announced the news earlier today via Instagram. "We're sad to announce that Giant Steps will be closing its doors at Swan Wharf in Hackney Wick at the end of September," the post reads. "We always knew our time here was temporary, and we're grateful to have had all the good times we did." There are six weekends left before the multi-storeyed venue shuts. Highlights include a Rhythm Section party with Wax'o Paradiso on Sunday, Hunee on August 25th and Jon K, Mr Pedro & Daniel Willis on September 14th. Giant Steps, which sits right by the River Lea, was a collaboration between Analogue Foundation and Dalston restaurant and listening bar Brilliant Corners. It is equipped with a high-spec Klipsch soundsystem, which the team says "will continue its journey." Since opening in May 2018, the venue has hosted a slew of top-tier artists, including Floating Points, Peggy Gou and Andrew Weatherall. Watch our RA Live stream with Gou.
