If you follow electronic music in any way, then you have to have heard of Holy Ship. Countless amounts of pictures and videos of the event have been posted all over social media platforms since it set sail in January, featuring electronic music household names like Skrillex, Diplo, Disclosure, A-Trak, Zedd, Tiesto, Laidback Luke and even Pharrell. Basically, it was every raver's paradise.
Now, two months later, we have been gifted with a recap video that covers the entire 3 day event. Watch the video above to witness what really went down on the now iconic Holy Ship.
Earlier this month, Skrillex launched his Takeovers tour with the invasion of San Francisco. Packing seven sold out shows into six days, Skrillex made sure his presence was known. Each show was uniquely different from the last, featuring support from artists like Jack Beats, GTA, Claude VonStroke, A$AP Rocky, Louisahhh!!!, and more.
For those unfortunate enough to not make it to one of these spectacular nights, Nest HQ has provided documentation of the first week thanks to videographer Glenjamn. Enjoy the next six minutes as you get a taste of what happened during those six days of takeover in San Francisco.

With love having been so recently in the air, Ellie Goulding decided she would spread the love with an exclusive "Goodnight Valentine" mix for Annie Mac Presents Free Music Mondays. The almost hour long mix contains a variety of sexy and sultry hip-hop, R&B, and electronica.

What stood out most from this mix was the very last track, 'Because,' her latest collaboration with Skrillex.

Opener, Tokimonsta put on a solid set which consisted of a good variety of music choices, from a remix of Waka Flocka's "Hard In The Paint" to Dillon Francis' "IDGAFOS," and Major Lazer's "Original Don". Following her, Lunice came out playing a straight trap/hip hop set with bangers from Big Sean, Rocko, Kanye West and his former duo TNGHT.
