Over 150 venues in New York have banded together to form New York Independent Venue Association.
Detroit techno legend Robert Hood shows his lighter side with a sunset-inspired house and techno masterclass from New York City.
Robert Hood and his daughter Lyric have collaborated on the next Floorplan EP, set for release 24th May via the Detroit legend’s M-PLANT label.
The two tracker, ‘So Glad/I Feel Him Moving’, is a typically rapturous crossover of gospel, disco and techno. You can hear the gospel choir sampling belter, ‘So Glad’, from it here.
Robert Hood has been locked to play one of DJ Mag’s parties as part of our Best Of North America Awards tour.
On 24th May, the Detroit techno legend – who featured on the cover of DJ Mag North America in January – will play Elsewhere’s Rooftop in Brooklyn. He will be joined by local breakthrough DJ, Justin Cudmore for the occasion. Elsewhere was a new entry this year in DJ Mag's Top 100 club's poll.
New Brooklyn nightclub Elsewhere, from the team behind the dearly departed Glasslands, will open this November.
The club's owners have now shared some photos of the sprawling club which feature five spaces, including two rooms, and is spread across 24,000 square feet.
The booking policy is already looking impressive with Octave One, Iori, Stacey Pullen, Juan Atkins, Kölsch, Jlin, Halal & Relaxer and Total Freedom all scheduled to play in November and December.
Location: Brooklyn, New York, USA
Elsewhere has emerged a certified year-round hot spot. The 24,000-square-foot Bushwick venue opened in late 2017, and debuted it’s art-forward rooftop — where artists like Robert Hood, Soul Clap and Justin Martin dish out beats to the happy-hour crowd — the following summer.
After dark, the party moves inside to the Main Hall, which recently hosted acts like The Knocks, Mat Zo, A-Trak and Mija (live). The dark and intimate Zone 1 room is primed for more experimental tastes, and on select nights the upstairs gallery is transformed into a third hangout with easy access to a full bar and gender-neutral bathrooms, one of Elsewhere’s inclusive offerings.

Brooklyn’s underground scenesters have found their new home at Elsewhere. The tall ceilings and winding staircases of the 24,000-square-foot, former furniture assembly warehouse contribute to the seamless navigation of this fledgeling hotspot, which opened in Bushwick during October of 2017. A true club for all seasons, Elsewhere’s rooftop features rotating art installations, frozen drinks and sunset DJ sessions during warmer months. The Main Hall (which has welcomed talents like ZHU, Magda, Nastia and Mike Servito) boasts a large, multi-tier dancefloor, but for Elsewhere loyals, the intimate ‘Zone One’ is the final destination for experimental sounds. “The first year is really about listening to your crowd and continually evolving the space alongside your community as it grows,” says co-owner, Jake Rosenthal. Long may that continue.
