Since bursting onto the scene in 2014, the lauded production whiz ZHU has made a name for himself as one of the world's most enigmatic and appreciated electronic music stars. His magical dancefloor formula has taken the dance music scene to new heights and his exclusive Blacklizt party has become one of the most talked-about and sought-after shows in the land.
Before coming aboard the 13th edition of the notorious dance music expedition, Holy Ship!, for four nights of seafaring mayhem, ZHU has taken the time to select 10 unsinkable cuts that will keep us afloat ahead of this influential cruise ship party.
This year, Holy Ship! will be presenting back-to-back voyages. Departing from Port Canaveral, Florida and making its way to the Bahamas, Holy Ship! 12.0 will embark for four nights between January 5-9 and will include two days of festival fun at the famed private island Great Stirrup Cay. The following sailing, Holy Ship! 13.0, will take place between January 9-12 and will stop in Great Stirrup Cay for a single, full-day party before heading home.
