Sick of seeing all the FOMO-inducing party pics from Holy Ship that your friends have been posting? (like this) Well, HARD is bringing a piece of the ship home to LA on their ongoing Ship 2 Ship tour featuring REZZ, Justin Martin, and the captain himself Gary Richards AKA Destructo on Saturday, January 23rd at Avalon Nightclub in Hollywood.
Opening things up is the one and only REZZ. If that name sounds oddly familiar, it’s because we have been obsessing over her for the past year, and named her our No. 1 Emerging Artist For 2015. The young Canadian artist blew up last year with releases on both mau5trap and OWSLA, and while deadmau5 and Skrillex can’t seem to agree on much these days, they both got behind REZZ. She’s commonly referred to as “Girlsteffelatin” due to the heavy industrial techno sound she creates, and her new EP, The Silence is Deafening, is set to drop this Friday on mau5trap.
Following REZZ is Dirtybird all-star Justin Martin, a name synonymous with funky beats and his never ending love affair with pizza. A love so deep that he was featured with a pizza head in the HARD Summer 2014 video. His song 'Function' has been one of the most played party anthems of 2015, and it’s physically impossible not to shake one’s arse while listening. Justin seemed to touchdown at every major festival of the past year including Dirtybird Campout and most recently played the January edition of Holy Ship.
Last but most certainly not least, the man behind all of the magic that is HARD: Destructo. The father of the SHIPFAM created HARD in 2007, and unlike many other bosses, Gary is not content sitting behind a desk or watching a festival from backstage. Destructo just premiered his new track '4 Real' featuring Ty Dolla $ign and iLoveMakonnen on Zane Lowe’s Beats One Radio after giving January shippers an early taste, and it’s scheduled to be the first single from an upcoming Destructo EP coming later this year.
