Malaa Shares His Full Bumping Closing Set From Holy Ship 10.0

One of the best features of Holy Ship! is the freedom that the DJs have to experiment with their sets. Instead of playing one hourlong set at a festival where they’re playing for tens of thousands, most artists are able to play anywhere from two to four sets on the ship. Malaa, the enigmatic Parisian house wizard, took full advantage of this, and threw down three separate, distinguishable sets on Holy Ship 10.0 (including a b2b with label mate Tchami). 

For his final set on the fourth night, Malaa dove a little deeper than he normally does, playing almost a full 75-minute tech-house set. Normally you would hear him drop his standard bangers off CONFESSION like “Notorious”, “Diamonds”, and “Fade”, but those were nowhere to be found in his set that closed out 10.0. Instead, Malaa was playing tracks from the likes of Camelphat, Solardo, Fisher, and other tech-house all-stars.

Luckily for us, Malaa released the set in its entirety today, for everyone to feast on. If you close your eyes and focus hard enough, you can almost feel the boat rocking… Enjoy!

Watch Deadmau5's Techno Alias Testpilot Throw Down On Holy Ship! 11.0: Full Set

If you made it onto Holy Ship! this year, you were treated to some insane b2b sets and rare performances. The 11.0 sailing featured some of the hardest hitting bass-in-your-face artists that electronic music has to offer as well as a set by Deadmau5’s techno side project, Testpilot. Getting Deadmau5 to perform as Testpilot is no easy task. The only other Testpilot sets that have taken place were at Movement in Detroit last year, and most recently, a performance in NYC during New Year’s Eve weekend. 

Back in 2015, it seemed like Joel Zimmerman would have never set foot aboard Holy Ship!. In fact, even when he was onboard, it seemed like he may have regretted the decision altogether (or he could just be trolling). However, we can only thank Testpilot for showing up and throwing down one of the filthiest techno sets we’ve ever heard. 

If you weren’t able to make it onto Holy Ship this year to catch his set, you’re in luck. Thankfully, a Youtube user uploaded the performance in its entirety. Beware, Deadmau5 fans. Prepare to be caught off guard by the deep, dark, techno that is Testpilot.

Holy Ship 10.0 Was Packed With Crazy B2B Sets, Here's What Went Down

Holy Ship 10.0 b2b

Holy Ship! is one of the most legendary electronic music festivals around today, and not just because it’s the only one to take place on a cruise ship sailing the Caribbean. Every year attendees praise the free-spirited onboard culture that results in spontaneous b2b performances from their favorite artists that they never thought they’d see play together.

These impromptu parties have been known to spring up as late (or early) as 6am and last as long as the DJs can go. Legendary unplanned b2bs from years past include Getter and josh pan’s “DJing On Acid” set, Louis The Child, Big Gigantic, Slander, Ghastly, Jai Wolf and Manila Killa’s epic two-hour set, and the truly insane five-hour b2b from Herobust, Jauz, Kayzo, Ookay, Getter and Slushii.

It seems that Holy Ship 10.0 was just as packed with unexpected performances as we saw tweets from artists and audience members roll in listing artists we never thought would play together. We’ve put together a list of the b2bs below with crowd/artist videos on the ones that were lucky enough to get recorded. Stay tuned for updates as soon as these sets hit SoundCloud. Enjoy!
