Eric Prydz – Liberate [Preview]

As the Winter Music Conference approaches, expect lots of new releases from some of our favorite DJ’s. As we anticipate the mau5trap vs PRYDA party as well as a special performance by Eric Prydz presenting “HOLO” at the Ultra Music Festival towards the end of March, Zane Lowe just previewed the masterful “Liberate” as his “Hottest Record in the World.” Forthcoming on Pryda Recordings, this beautiful melodic progressive house tune boasts the lyrics “don’t break now, the world’s locked out, just close your eyes, and we can push them all away…” as Mr. Prydz himself tweeted just today. Reminiscent of his past progressive pop hits such as “Everyday” and even the throwback “Call On Me,” this track is sure to be a staple amongst the Pryda friends and more. The track is due to be released via Beatport on March 21st, just in time for WMC/MMW.

The most sought-after party of WMC is here: mau5trap vs PRYDA [Event]

mau5trap vs PRYDA
Our mau5 ears shot straight up when we first caught wind of this elusive event just over a week ago via twitter. The mau5trap account tweeted a flyer that simply read “mau5trap vs PRYDA 03.27.14″ and left us all in a whirlwind as we were already scurrying to make a decision on what event to attend that night. Amongst all of the amazing lineups planned for that day, this one solidified the deal. The party will be held at a pop up arena at Ice Palace Studios in Downtown Miami from 10PM to 5AM, with no further details revealed, just a hint that there will be “special gue5ts.” We can only speculate that the record label head honchos deadmau5 and Eric Prydz will be in attendance. Will the current artists such as Hot Mouth, Tommy Trash, or Nom De Strip be going against Pryda friends Fehrplay and Jeremy Olander? Will they be spinning b2b? Perhaps testpilot will go back to back with Cirez D? We can’t wait to find out. Tickets for the 21+ event will go on sale Monday March 10th via Wantickets, in the meantime, peep some brand new Deadmau5 as he experiments with his techno moniker in Testpilot.

 As promised, dance music extraordinaire Eric Prydz has already previewed his next track “F.A.T.” under his Pryda alias.

He is clearly hard at work in the studio, and it shows, as all of his latest Pryda teasers and releases including “Layers” have been captivatingly good. We’re looking forward to what else Mr. Prydz has got up his sleeve.

Pryda – Power Drive (Original Mix) [Release]

The master is back at it again. Today we have a superb release from Eric Prydz via Pryda Recordings. “Power Drive” is another work of art as it gives more of a Pryda/Black Dice feel to it. The melodic progressions and energetic dark feel make this one a must have. Its good to see Eric back in the studio and we can only hope for more hits like this in the near future as he begins a new journey here in the U.S. Grab “Power Drive” on BeatPort and stay tuned for a massive summer up coming for Pryda.

Jeremy Olander – Let Me Feel [Release]

Jeremy-Olander-Let-Me-FeelAt just 24-years-old, Jeremy Olander already has the support from one of the most famed and talented producers in the game known as Eric Prydz. Olander was the only person to have more than one track featured on Pryda’s legendary essential mix from last month. Prydz saw something special in the young stud when he signed him to a three-release deal on his own record label, Pryda Friends, and soon enough asked him to tour with him. In this track it’s easy to see why the veteran has so much confidence in Olander. And the praise does not stop there, Above & Beyond was happy to have Olander perform a guest mix on their radio show, ABGT, just under two weeks ago. It has been an exciting month for the prodigy, and he is showing no signs of slowing down. Peep this new original on BeatPort titled “Let Me Feel” , and let us know what you think!

Eric Prydz has been in the game for a long time, and is a veteran when it comes to mastering his mixes and live sets. For those mainstream Pryda fans that have only been exposed to hits, such as Allein, Pjanoo, and 2night, then you have only taken but a minor step inside the genius mind that is Eric Prydz. In this essential mix on BBC Radio 1, over 80% of the tracks played are unreleased, which speaks to the distinctive approach of this music legend. He knows exactly what to drop to captivate crowds and fans and this essential mix is a testament to that. In the back end of the mix, he goes back and forth from his own tunes to those of Jeremy Olander, whom Prydz has signed to his label (Pryda Friends) and has only the highest of praises for. Enjoy this incredible essential mix and peep the track list after the break.

Pryda – Allein (Eric Prydz) [RELEASE]

This huge anthem played by Sebastian Ingrosso on his most recent episode of “Refune Radio” is entitled Allien. This track is unlike any other house music song I have heard in a while, and really is what the dance music industry is missing these days. I don’t even have the words to describe it, but the closest I can come is calling it pure brilliance. Really loving this production by Eric Prydz aka Pryda, and it will be dropping on his album May 21st, the first entire house music album I can say I am really looking forward to. This album contains tracks that have been in the making for nearly 5 years and of all different sounds and styles, really a breath of fresh air from some of these similar drum lines and melodies we have been hearing lately. I hope this album inspires other artists to produce music of this caliber and think outside the box the next time they get in the studio because the industry really needs some variation.

Pryda – SW4 (Club Mix) [RELEASE]

Eric Prydz is being very patient with the tracks he puts out off of his debut album. The perfectionist known also as Cirez D and Pryda, has been working hard to give us the best possible beats and sounds and it shows in his latest release “SW4.” This track slowly builds into a massive techno beat, showing us all that Pryda is very much still on his game and then some. Be ready for a big year for Pryda as we will put up more tracks off his new album soon and be sure to get your tickets to ID Festival as Prydz is set to headline the tour. I personally cannot wait to see him live and I am sure he will not disappoint. ENJOY!!

Eric Prydz. [THROWBACK OF THE WEEK] vol.2

If you call yourself a fan of EDM and aren’t familiar with Eric Prydz  aka “Pryda” or even as Cirez D, you have a lot of studying to do. Other than the fact that Prydz was one of the main reasons for the merging of the Swedish House Mafia, he is simply a legend. He has worked under multiple names and masterfully released tracks for the underground and mainstream scenes. You might be asking, why so many different names? Well, when anyone hears a certain name, they associate that name with a certain sound. For example, when a person hears the name Avicii, they probably think progressive/melodic house. Going under a different name allows an artist to experiment with different sounds, this way he can provide to a wider array of fans. It really just shows this talented producers under multiple persona’s. While under Pryda, the music Eric releases is more progressive. Prydz gives us a more diverse feel for the dance floors. Hope you enjoy!

Mr. Prydz

Eric Prydz, also known under his two alias’s as Pryda and Cirez D, happens to be one of  my top five most favorite DJ’s. When this man produces a track, you never know what’s coming; he has the ability to create tracks with so many different styles, and he not only does that- he does it extremely well. It’s all too easy to lose yourself in it- whether its all about the beat in a song like “With Me”, or whether its a progressive beauty made to transcend your mind to a different level, like “2Night”. Prydz is idolized and followed by aspiring DJ’s and EMD veterans around the world. Every time I listen to a song produced by him, I am always fascinated by his ability to create something so different each and every single time. In my opinion, Eric Prydz is the type of producer that does house music justice. DJ’s like him are the reason why I am so in love with house. Download his latest track, a remix to Digitalism’s “Circles”- a song with a soothing melody and a good vibe, much like the rest of Prydz’s work. Be sure to download!
