Where Eric Prydz’s Pryda moniker and imprint have proven key assets to the Swedish heavyweights legacy, their influence on the modern House scene remains undeniable. Evidently snapped-up by the Pryda bug, Oslo born producer Fehrplay emerges into 2012 with a potent inaugural instalment. Pitting stern keys against an arsenal of deeply tuned leads, the Norwegian born producer proves an apt addition to the Pryda family with an impressive dexterity for melodically refined Progressive House. In an outright blitz of euphoric energy without impeding on the more fashionable avenues of electronic, ‘Phantom’ marks a divine turn in European Dance music that is sure to muster the rising producer some serious support.
