The Analog Vault – Located at the Esplanade, Singapore’s main performing concert hall and music venue, The Analog Vault has become one of the go-to places for jazz, audiophile, hip-hop, electronica, and indie aficionados alike in Singapore. The team behind The Analog Vault are ardent champions of the analog music culture, and strongly believe that listening to music on vinyl via an analog sound system is one of the best ways to enjoy good music. August 2017 will see the opening of its new concept, The Analog Room, which will be located adjacent to The Analog Vault’s current brick-and-mortar space at the Esplanade. The Analog Room, featuring a superlative analog sound system, DJ console, and whisky bar, is expected to play host to audiophile listening events, DJ sessions, music education workshops, and whisky tasting events, in addition to providing for the expansion of The Analog Vault’s existing retail space.

The team from The Analog Vault will be represented by Sharon Seet, Curator at The Analog Vault, and Matt Sekiya, Sales & Marketing Manager.

For The Record - For The Record is run by the legendary Mr. Alagiry Alagrisamy, who is possibly the foremost veritable expert on rock, prog rock, and jazz vinyl records in Singapore, possibly Asia, whose institutional knowledge on vinyl and music is unsurpassed in our tiny island of Singapore. Located on the 4th floor of Peninsuala Shopping Centre at Coleman Street, it is our go-to store for out-of-print rock, prog rock, classical, jazz and rare records. Records here are priced as per international standards, and you are allowed to test most records on sale, on a legendary Linn LP12 record player and Naim audio system set-up no less. International DJs have previously been spotted getting their hands dirty and working through the veritable trove of records. Caution though! Alagiry is also known to some as the Vinyl Nazi (we believe the certain local journalist that bestowed this lofty title on him meant this in the sweetest way possible), as he always famously says "I won’t sell to speculative buyers and these hipsters".

Worst customers according to Giri:
"Generally, there are bargainers. But that’s understandable. I don’t mind simple bargaining. But the worst ones would be the speculative buyers. They buy because of hearsay but they have no idea about the history behind it or the music. I have disdain." We agree.

For Coffee

A Primer to Specialty Coffee - What makes specialty coffee “special”

Our speaker:

 

Leon Foo – Leon, a former equity analyst, decided to pursue his passion in 2009 by opening Papa Palheta - a boutique Specialty Coffee roaster. Since then, he has pushed boundaries in the Singapore coffeescene through his sourcing practices, roasting philosophies and well executed projects, including the more known project called Chye Seng Huat Hardward Coffee Bar. In 2014, Leon expanded his coffee business into Malaysia by opening PULP in Bangsar, Kuala Lumpur. Leon is inspired by his travel, design and the people he meets along his entrepreneurial journey.
