Few have championed the Swedish House explosion with as much momentous achievement as longstanding legend Eric Prydz. Forging his legacy well before his genres untimely renaissance, his various musical guises have made for an overtly fuller package of floor-fuelling divinity, while his Pryda and Mouseville imprints have fostered a new generation of Progressive House supremacy alongside his own distinct offerings. Be it early Floyd rendition ‘Proper Education’ or 2011’s groundbreaking ‘Niton (The Reason), where the country’s electronic legacy is now associated with three particular producers, Eric Prydz has proven one its single most vital elements from the outset and having backed up this legacy with enigmatic performances across the globe, his reign is all too familiar on a universal scale.
But having teased and taunted his aficionados with wave after wave of solid singles and remixes under his various musical guises, the wait is finally over for the definitive full-length album under the illustrious Pryda moniker. Expected to emerge over the next two months via EMI, the enigmatic Swede will launch this hotly-tipped record at an establishment as synonymous with the term legendary as the man himself, visiting Ministry of Sound on April 14 for an exclusive appearance in the city that has proven an apt second home to him over the years. Notorious for maturely tuned melodics and expertly tailored transitions, his first full-length album could well mark the most highly anticipated album of this generation, let alone 2012.
