Eric Prydz comes out with an emotional take on one of the tracks from Digitalism’s latest artist album, released in mid June. After recent, triumphant releases like the Mirage EP, 2Night, the remixes on Depeche Mode as well as Mokba and Full Stop under his harder and darker moniker, Cirez D, it’s like we’ve seen nothing yet as Prydz and his skillful production ability return for a rendition out of the electro-pop pair from Hamburg that’s destined to become a chart-topping classic. Having made the world of dance music aware of his well-grinded outlet of tracks through his inimitable creativeness and sense for a spot-on harmony that has come to unearth our fellow Swede into an icon, whom certainly is worthy of getting the phrase ”Eric Prydz for president” adapted to him.
Racking up an abundance of anticipated, unreleased tunes recurringly featured in his distinguished live shows over the past few years, it’s no secret the Swede has become a master of melodies – a phenomen this new remix on Circles is a spiffing example of. Soulfully thumping baselines, an unremitting synth filled lead and vocal samples from the original are only a few of the elements making up the latest masterpiece out from Eric Prydz.
The remix package of Digitalism’s Circles now out on Pryda Friends is also containing a take from the aspirant of camp Prydz – Jeremy Olander. After the releases of Fairfax and Rypamont and the Evade EP, Olander returns to the esteemed guest label of the Swedish mastermind for a third appearance. His progressive revision of underground music has become an epic asset to the scene itself and its advancement. And after showing his immense mastery in rendering pieces good enough to belong on the shelves of Dirty South’s Phazing label, Spinnin Records and the aforementioned Pryda Friends, the talent the young Stockholm producer possesses is truly remarkable.
As we yet await The Drew, Animal Garden and his astounding edit of Depeche Mode’s It’s No Good hit to be released, Olander offers his second ever remix, taking on the established duo from Germany and one of the singles off their recent studio album. Unlike the Prydz remix, which is built upon a vivid synth melody, Olander enforces the darker face of the two-piece package with chunky beats, soulful echoes and a solid chord progression.
