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.
After a new signing with Virgin Records in December of last year and with the launch party set to take place at Ministry Of Sound in London on April 14th, we can now happily reveal not only the release date, but also the tracklisting for Eric Prydz’ highly anticipated tiple CD debut album. Due for release on May 21st 2012 via Virgin, the album will focus on his globally acclaimed Pryda moniker and the first disc’s 13 unreleased Pryda tracks, including such sought-after productions as ‘Agag’, ‘Mighty Love’, ‘Allein’ and more. Flashing back on the legacy of a true Electronic Dance Music legend, the album will also feature a Retrospective Mix, divided to make up the 2nd and 3rd disc.
That being said, this triple CD compilation album made in celebration of his Pryda alias will merely play the role as a teaser for the full-length artist album that is due out later this year.
The album will be released on May 21st 2012 via EMI Music/Virgin Records.
