DJ Mag welcomes the inimitable Carl Craig as Treetops presents our Best of North America Awards tour at New York's House of Yes for on Saturday 22nd July.
Carl Craig — who is nominated in the Best Producer category for our very first Best of North America Awards — needs no introductions; the godfather of Detroit techno and world-renowned DJ, Craig has been at the forefront of the techno revolution for over two decades.

Since opening in 2016, House Of Yes (HOY) has become the venue of choice for clubbers looking for an alternative to hoary nightlife. HOY revolutionises the nightclub concept: more than loud dancefloors and bright lights, the venue operates like an artistic safe space for patrons and performers alike. HOY truly comes to life via its immersive and inclusive spectacles and experience-based design, which include interactive theatrics, aerial circus displays, costumed performers and more. While the venue has hosted noteworthy acts like Jonas Rathsman, Dimitri From Paris and Marshall Jefferson in the past year, its can’t-miss programming encompasses everything from roller discos and variety shows to burlesque nights and drag competitions.
House of Yes is anything but your typical nightclub. Located in Brooklyn’s eclectic Bushwick neighborhood, this rhinestone studded fun-house has become a haven for all things artistic. While dance parties are among the venue’s most popular offerings, House of Yes is also home to immersive cinema, performance art, circus, theatrical and community group events. Its unique layout makes it especially versatile and ideal for their ever-popular schedule of “costume required” theme nights which range from glitter balls to ‘70s style disco takeovers.

House Of Yes bills itself as “the best venue ever” and, though a bold claim, it’s also quite convincing. The venue identifies as a temple of expression, a safe space, a creative playground and a performance-fueled nightclub, so to label it just a club is to sell this imaginative heaven short. The venue creates unique nightlife experiences via interactive theatrics, aerial circus spectacles and experience design, all powered by performance, audience interaction and music. While past DJs and artists include Todd Terry, Greg Wilson and Sharam, the magic really lives in the venue’s internal programming, which includes theatre, performance art, variety shows, burlesque nights, drag competitions and vogue balls. House Of Yes welcomes weirdos of all shapes and sizes, making it a home for everyone and anyone. Just say “yes” when the house beckons.
With a regular spot in our DJ Mag Top 100 Clubs poll, it’s no wonder Brooklyn’s favorite techno outpost, Output, clinched out a Best Of North America win. As one reader commented, “The sound system is hands down one of the best in the five boroughs.” Having spent more than one night immersed inside its Funktion One laden walls, we are hard-pressed to disagree. The 12,000-square-foot venue is a converted warehouse, with unvarnished concrete and exposed steel beams lending a vibe that suits its regular line-ups – think residents like Horse Meat Disco, Bonobo and Seth Troxler.
