Halfway through the second massive FriendShip voyage, founder and electronic extraordinaire DESTRUCTO laid down a stunning, four-hour "Sunrise Sermon" performance packed to the brim with special guests. Perched on the main deck of the transformed Royal Caribbean ship, Navigator of the Seas, the man responsible for the sun-soaked getaway dropped countless unreleased tunes, collaborations, and classics during his marathon set. 

With 3,000 vacationers in attendance, the Sunrise Sermon lived up to its name and was a truly spiritual performance perfect for those who can't stop dancing.

While four hours of DESTRUCTO (real name Gary Richards) is more than enough to be excited about, he surprised fans by bringing out some of EDM's biggest stars for impromptu B2Bs and even a classic rock cover. Boys NoizeJimmy Valance of Bob Moses, Danny Daze, and more joined Richards on the decks while GRiZ dished out a saxophone rendition of the classic rock track “Ride Like the Wind” by Christopher Cross.

Luckily for those who weren't able to experience the set on the water, Richards has uploaded the entire set to his SoundCloud for all to enjoy. Clocking in at just under four hours and 20 minutes, there's so much music to explore that it might take repeat listens to truly process its greatness.
