With 40 days to go until Holy Ship! 10.0 it is only fitting to be sharing this amazing mix by none other than Subset aka Mark Martinez. If you have never heard of him before that is ok you are now! This man is a legend to us Shipfam! He is best known for making renegade sets happen all over the place when he is at a festival. My first time experiencing this was on my first sailing of Holy Ship! February 2015. It was the first night and my friend and I were roaming the boat in the wee hours of the early morning. The sun was beginning to rise and we could hear some beats on one end of the ship. We found a small group of partiers dancing around while Subset was doing his magic, making his own sunrise set happen. It is still not only one of my favorite moments on Holy Ship! but just one of my favorite festival moments of all time. It really set the tone for my first Holy Ship. A year later Subset was rewarded with his own set time in the Theatre. If you were there you know how much fun that one was! If you ever see him at a show, festival, or just walking down the street dont be afraid to give him a hug. Subset is one of the most positive people in this industry. He has a saying that Subset gets it. He really does.
This mix is in a series to get us Shipfam all ready to once again create an amazing experience in the middle of the ocean. The sound clips he throws in periodically are so well timed and make so much sense for Holy Ship it gave me happy chills down my spine. Subset is amazing at being able to play many genres, usually in one mix. This one will have you bouncing and moving with a huge smile on your face. Shipfam or not enjoy this amazing collection of house tunes. Be sure to check him out on soundcloud (click that link above!).
