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.
On February 28th the legendary Tiesto will begin his DJ residency at Hakkasan Las Vegas, and with a little help from PixMob, the show will offer a whole new experience. Not only will a light show be presented on a screen behind the famed DJ, there will also be one in the crowd. How is this possible?
PixMob has crafted a LED bracelet that will allow fans to generate wireless video effects just by sporting them on their wrists. Using infrared to send instructions wirelessly to pixels worn by members of the audience, the technology of PixMob will bring a rainbow of color upon the crowd. Each audience member will be given a bracelet upon arrival, allowing lighting directors to produce a light show on a whole new canvas, as they change the colors of every single bracelet from their computers. The light show will be in sync with the music giving the crowd a whole new visual element to party to.
Tiësto has always been at the forefront of dance music, constantly staying ahead of the curve in the ever-changing and growing electronic music industry. Having recently partnered with Casablanca Records and Republic Records, Tiësto teases at his next big music move with 'Red Lights,' the first single from his fifth full-length album due out soon.
This week, Tiesto will be the special guest featured on BBC Radio 1's Essential Mix. This is huge, considering that the last time Tiesto graced the Essential Mix was back in 2006. It will be a very special Clublife Afterhours Essential Mix, featuring deep house and techno tunes from Avicii, Joris Voorn, Chris Malinchak, and many more.
For fans in North America, you can tune in on Saturday, February 1st at 8pm EST/5pm PST via the BBC website, here.
Rising producer, MOTi, just released his latest single, 'Don't Go Lose It' on Tiesto's Musical Freedom label. As a Dutch producer, MOTi has gotten the support from Tiesto and he's already become one of the most promising acts to watch out for in 2014.
MOTi's latest single, 'Don't Go Lose It' goes beyond the typical dance floor banger. It's rich with history from being built upon legendary South African musician, Hugh Masekala's old tunes.
2013 was only the beginning to MOTi's career having collaborated with Tiesto, Example, Alvaro and Quintino. Now, MOTi's making some serious airwaves to make a prominent name for himself.

The Winter X Games have commenced today in Aspen and will continue to showcase the most kick ass winter games until January 26th. Aside from the main attraction of totally insane and badass snowboarding and skiing tricks, the Winter X Games are featuring world renowned DJs like Tiesto and Axwell to highlight the music portion of the event on Sunday evening.
Tiesto is no stranger to headlining major sports festivals aside from his lucrative music career. In 2004, he's performed at the opening ceremony for the Athens Olympics. Right before his closing set, one-third of ex-Swedish House Mafia member and five-time Grammy nominee, Axwell, will also play his set at 4:00 PM.
This is the second year in a row that all four X Games featured their music segment at these events. The X Games Music Presents portion also fulfills a charitable deed by benefitting the V Foundation for Cancer Research.
After reaching 16 million fans on Facebook, the EDM legend Tiësto, decided to release a remix of his hit "Maximal Crazy".

Due out January 20th, Rebel will mark the second release of 2014 on former Swedish House Mafia member Steve Angello's Size Records.
