HATS OFF TO J HUS!

UK rapper, J Hus, demanded high-quality production values when he staged his first ever London show. The centre-piece had to be a white 5m-wide bucket, recreating the cover-photo theme from his hit album, Common Sense. It needed to be a striking feature, an entrance and a practical stage setting, all designed and created to his specification. Area 51 constructed the huge hat on a bespoke welded tubular steel frame. It featured remote electric actuators to open the doors on command for J Hus’ big entrance and the whole construction was mounted on a revolving stage.

THE BUILD:

Area 51 constructed the huge hat on a bespoke welded tubular steel frame. It featured remote electric actuators to open the doors on command for J Hus’ big entrance and the whole construction was mounted on a revolving stage.

The huge hat became a major stage performer in its own right. During the show it turned through 180 degrees to reveal that the rear of the hat that had been designed to emulate smashed glass, using mirror acrylic. His band performed in front of the mirror shards adding to the spectacle. This Hus hat captured the attention of the music critics and national press and proved the perfect centre-piece for the dramatic and energetic vibe of his show.
