On Thursday March 16, House of Yes will be ‘Abducted’ by Defected Records’ Sam Divine and Franky Rizardo for a FREE before 11pm (with RSVP) out of this world sci-fi themed label takeover. Featuring all of the usual House of Yes bells and whistles alongside lots of alien aerial extravaganzas, these two house music masters with their sonic sound and intergalactic beats will teleport the dancefloor to a bopping cyborg filled galaxy far, far away.
Established in the UK since 1999, Defected Records is one of the world’s longest running independent dance music labels. Now with parties across the globe, the Defected Croatia festival and seasons in Ibiza, Defected is coming to America and teaming up with the eclectic House Of Yes for one memorable night featuring the Defected residents Franky Rizardo and Sam Divine.
Sam Divine has swiftly become one of Britain’s most revered house music producers frequently headlining festivals throughout the UK and Europe. With an impressive resumé that includes past residencies at Ibiza’s Ushuaia and also Amnesia nightclubs, as well as her own label, her Defected in the House mix compilation quickly became an iTunes chart topper. On top of all this she is also the presenter for the number one iTunes house music podcast, Defected in the House’s radio show.
Hailing from Holland, Franky Rizardo is one of The Netherlands’ biggest names in house music. A longstanding member of the Defected Records’ family, Franky has dropped multiple releases on the label whilst running his own LTF Records and releasing tracks on Saved. With many exciting projects and events on the cards for 2017, Franky Rizardo is a rapidly rising star on the global house music scene.
Alongside the stellar DJ lineup, partygoers can get lost in House of Yes space and take in a stunning space-themed light show and visuals from the other side of the universe, experience close encounters with cyborgs and cyborgettes, be abducted by alien creatures with massages in the Onyx Room and marvel at incredible intergalactic aerial performances. Revellers are encouraged to come dressed in their finest alien attire to add to the extraterrestrial themed environment.

Defected in the House presents
House of Yes opened its third iteration in Bushwick at the beginning of 2016 to become a beacon of NYC nightlife after shuttering its doors too soon in East Williamsburg three years ago. Original partners Anya Sapozhnikova and Kae Burke, teamed up with Ilan Telmont and Justin Ahiyon to build out the best venue ever with a little help from their friends, seeding a Kickstarter campaign for $92,340 (original goal: $60,000). The space includes an art-deco restaurant parlor, a spectacularly decorated warehouse-sized performance space, a courtyard with kitschy repurposed decor, and a clandestine mini-club. House of Yes is now the home of circus spectacles, immersive cinema, burlesque and cabaret shows, aerial extravaganzas, nightlife parties, morning raves, brunch, BBQs, and bubble baths, all with superior sound and exemplary service. Each night is specially curated to create an immersive experience with music, theatrics, and performances to titillate the senses and expand your mind, unlike any other venue in Brooklyn right now.
Established in the UK since 1999, Defected Records is one of the world’s longest running independent dance music labels that has released music from legends like Dimitri From Paris, Sonny Fodera, Crookers and many more top talents. Their recipe for success has been simple and effective; adaptability, an eye for young talent together with established names and the staunch belief in never conforming to what’s considered ‘trendy’. Besides that, they know the ingredients for a great party…Great music. Great DJs. Great people.
